date night

Last night we went to see Iron Man 2 at our favorite hangout - Gold Class Cinema in Bolingbrook.  Our son is bartender and his buddy, Cody, just got hired on, so we have an excuse to see them.  Prior to seeing the movie, we sampled the new concoctions being offered in honor of the newest release.  They were sooo tasty.  That cute little glass is supposed to be a shot, but I had to sip it. 
We liked the sequel, despite the mixed reviews.  Robert Downey, Jr. and Mickey Rourke did not disappoint.  Gwyneth and Scarlet were nice eye candy and Don Cheadle added his talents.  The action parts were very impressive.  Typically, we like to go back to the bar after the show and have a coffee.  Dan makes the best coffee - ever.  To our delight, Jim and Ashley were there so we chatted for a bit, then Mike texted us that he was downstairs at Bar Louie with Norman, so we told them to come on up and join the party.  Fun times.  It's nice to get out once in a while and meet up with friends, or in this case, our kid's friends.  If you plan to see the movie, stay until after the credits roll for you will get a sneak peak at what's to come.

Today we are going to Brighton Park, again, to make the rounds and visit my dad, John (his birthday was yesterday) and Carrie, Wally, Bob, and to show Wayne my labor of love.  Lots of touring, but it's too cold to do anything outdoors.  I have to cover all my plants tonight for fear of frost. 

Be happy. xo
