hubby and i thought it would be nice to kick off the anniversary celebration early [like four'ish days early] by enjoying a mid-week date night.

where to?  citizen public house, but of course.

when it was too hard to choose between the yummy beverages, our waiter treated my man to a free beverage tasting to help him make the final choice.  this is a great place + kilt lifter fondue.  THE BEST EVER + deep sea red crab cakes with smoked red pepper aioli & celery root slaw + MY FAVORITE DISH.  EVER. chicken & waffles: buttermilk-marinated fried chicken, oat waffles, almond butter, blue clover honey.  plus...gluten free!  bonus + THE YUMMIEST OF DESSERTS. donuts & coffee:  bourbon glazed donut bread pudding, vanilla sauce, cafe au lait ice cream, topped with brown sugar streusel

...

after we were fat and happy, took a little drive over to the artsy-fartsy movie theater to watch moonrise kingdom.

by the way, that is one delightful little movie.  fabulous acting.  lovely scenery.  interesting music.  quirky and funny and lovely to watch.  wes anderson.  well done, sir.
