Photo Roundup {Date Night Edition}


Let me first say...cheers to new friends and a random night of unexpected drinks, laughter and exploring Downtown Dallas with my husband! Since hubby works in Downtown Dallas now, he is able to explore almost every single day but he mentioned also wanting to show me around since I typically have no reason to hang out in downtown unless its a concert or basketball game at the American Airlines Center. 

I caught the DART train down to Victory Park and walked to my hubby's job from the station. I was able to see inside the building he works at and also meet all of his new coworkers. It was a lot of fun considering he is going to be traveling to Chicago for work this week...it put my mind at ease to know he is traveling with cool people! haha! 

We made reservations at Perry's Steakhouse! After dinner, we walked off our food, drinks and dessert by walking to Klyde Warren Park. We took in the sights at the park and enjoyed people watching a little and also observing a Salsa class that was taking place at the park while we were there. We then made our way to the W Hotel because I had always wanted to go there with babe and enjoy their lounge/bar area. It turned into an unexpected tour of what used to be The Ghostbar nightclub. I was unaware that it had been closed for over 2 years! After getting a tour of that area, as well as the pool, we ended up in the lounge/bar area to catch the end of the Miami Heat game. Here at the bar, we met even more great people...the bartender - Howard and our new friend - Reuben. I guess I should mention what prompted the tour of the entire hotel! I went to ask a security guard who was on duty a question about the hotel and told him my husband had never seen the Ghostbar. He then told me it didn't exist anymore...along with the reasons for that. And then asked if I would be interested in taking my husband on a private tour with his escort. So, we ended up spontaneously really enjoying ourselves between the tour and the free round of drinks & shots care of our new friend Reuben, who is a regular at the W Hotel lounge/bar. He literally knows everyone! We have been invited back today to enjoy the pool at our leisure and if the weather holds up...we plan to spend our day at the W hotel once hubby gets home from his boxing class.

Hope that was a decent enough recap even though I feel there are no amount of words that would do last night justice! Enjoy all the photos!
