Ladies Night Dinner at Press 101

Posted: October 22, 2011 in dining out

I love a good girls night out.  It’s hard with my school and work schedule to find time, but when I do it is always a happy evening.  

Kyle not such a fan of girls night.  That means he eats dinner alone.  He’s not a fan.

This week I met my friends Darcy and Amber at Press 101 in the Dr. Phillips area.  It’s a very “cute” restaurant that Kyle and I are very fond of.  It has a great wine list and fresh, tasty salads and sandwiches.  They often have live music in the evening too. According to their website they’re a “Euro Bar”.

I was early (shocker), so I asked the waitress if there were any happy hour specials. Apparently the thousands of hours I spend watching the Real Housewives makes me think wine is necessary at every girls only dinner. It is? Right?
The waitress informed me that it was Ladies Night and I got a free glass on Sangria.  Oh yeah! Mega score! (and I didn’t even have a coupon)

We started the meal with a fruit & cheese plate.  Amber and I both thought this was “very fancy”. It was a good variety of cheese, but I really like the sweet jam with the crusty french bread. Nom Nom.

For my main course I went for a salmon salad.  It came with a poppyseed dressing, spring mix, craisins, walnuts, and some other salad veg.  I was very happy with my choice.  The salad was actually warm, which I loved, and the salmon had great flavor.  I rarely cook salmon at home, however I know how good it is for you – Omega 3’s. Therefore I try to order it out often.

After our food was demolished I got a fantastic surprise. Presents! 🙂 Yes, I’m five years old and still love gifts. Don’t judge.

Wine from Napa.

My birthday is next week, so Darcy brought me some early birthday love since I won’t see her until after the big day. Darcy is a wonderful friend and she is one of the most thoughtful people I know.  She also knows that I LOVE Christmas so in lieu of buying a new gift bag, she knew that I would be just fine with some early ho ho hoilday love!

I love smiling. Smiling is my favorite.
Amber was acting our irrationally because she didn’t get presents. And yes she knew I was putting this on the blog….I hope! 🙂 Love ya!

Thank you ladies for a wonderful night!
Love and free laughs,
Carissa & Kyle
