Not One, But Two Date Nights This Week

Larry and I both love life and we love to live it as much as possible. We don’t go out nearly as much as we used to, but this week, we made up for that. We had not one, but two date nights this week. So not much happening in my kitchen at the moment, but that will soon change again.

We are all decked out in our Av’s gear.

The first one was to the Avalanche game with our friends Jonathan, Eric and Shannon. The Avalanche is our hockey team. Larry is a HUGE hockey fan. I love hockey too, but not like Larry. It was a fun night, but we ended up losing 3-1. They won a couple nights later (the same night we were at the Jason Bonham concert), same score, just in reverse. I would have preferred seeing our team win, but what can we do about it. It is what it is.

This mural is made completely from recycled cans. Isn’t cool?

All of these pictures are still from the cell phone, and NOT my new camera. We cannot really take purses or bags into the arenas, and I didn’t feel like bringing in my brand new, expensive camera.

The hockey gang.

Date night #2 was to the Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience. We went to dinner at Maggiano’s first though. Normally I do not like to write about chain restaurants, since I much prefer to give a shout out to the independent places. We enjoyed our dinner. We feasted on salad, bread, lasagna and Parmigiano crusted cod. Everything was very good, but we both thought I can do better. In fact, as looking over the menu to make our selections, I just made a lot of what they offered last week at home, only better.

After dinner, as we were walking towards the Paramount Theatre for the concert, we decided to stop in for a sweet bite at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I made a new friend. Larry wasn’t to jealous.

For those of you who don’t know, Jason Bonham is the son of rock royalty. He is John Bonham’s son, the late drummer for Led Zeppelin. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Led Zeppelin, just like Larry loves his hockey. Always have. Since Led Zeppelin broke up many moons ago, after Bonzo’s death, this is the only way to really see a Zeppelin show any more, and it was great! Led Zeppelin has so many great songs, it’s impossible to pack them all in, though the boys in the band did play a lot of great hits.

The Paramount Theatre is an absolutely gorgeous theatre decorated in art deco style. It is a beautiful tribute to the bygone era of elegance. We have seen many concerts there. It seats about 2000-3000 people.

Rock on Everyone. Life just keeps on rolling on. Don’t let it pass you by. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.

  1. What a fun couple of nights! I always feel a bit cheated when we eat out and I realize I could make better food. If the food is at least as good as I can make it or better, then it feels like money we’ll spent. I love to cook, and I also like to have someone cook for me. I especially like it when someone does something unexpected with food and it is delicious.
