On some date nights we have a progressive dinner, roaming from one restaurant to another.
For the first course we may have a glass of wine and an appetizer in one restaurant.
At another restaurant we may have a salad.
Our first course for this evening was enjoyed at Cafe' Lola. This is a great place to meet with friends and have a cocktail after work and then come back later in the evening for an elegant date night.
Our next visit was to the bar at our old favorite, Wellington's in the Carnegie Hotel.
Sometimes we sit by a fireplace or a window with a great view and have a glass of wine and a long conversation. Those conversations often draw in other people sitting around us. On this evening we met a delightful group of women celebrating one young woman's start of med school here at ETSU.
These two beautiful ladies are the mothers of the lovely young women below.
We visited with this delightful group for a long pleasant conversation. It was great to share in the celebration of the exciting life adventure that they are just beginning.
Our last stop of the evening was on the patio at our favorite place to visit in town. Gourmet and Company is celebrating twenty-five years in business and so on the 25th of each month this year there is a special dinner menu along with live entertainment on the patio. Tonight's performance was by the great local band, This Mountain.
The festive evening ended visiting with great friends and listening to superb live music.
The Cynthia Rowley shoes are from Belk and the little black dress is by Ralph Lauren via T.J.Maxx. The asymmetric neckline and ruching at the waist are details that make it unique. I am most definitely more comfortable in pants and a jacket but there are occasions when one needs a dress. I am glad I found this one last week.
And now for a little Wear It Wednesday... In an earlier post many of you hated my cool lace up black shoes with this jacket and a pencil skirt, so I restyled it for you here as requested. I still love the shoes but I will wear them with straight leg pants in the future. The skirt is in the to go bag.
