[OOTD] Jolly Roger Flying on the Picnic Table

I have to apologize in advance here - the next few days of pics are phone pics (blech). The weather here has been so ridiculously rainy I haven't been able to get outside to take pics. Bear with me!!

Earlier this week, the hubs and I went for a date night. We decided to be adventurous and went to our good buddy Scoutmob - you know, the app with deals that you don't have to prepurchase. Our choices are always limited - my husband is a vegetarian, but he's also a big strong dude, so places that only have salad or a plate of sides as options for vegetarians are not options for us. (And you'd be surprised how many restaurants that includes).

So we narrowed it down to a Thai place and a Mexican place and ended up going for Thai. I tend to forget that these places are always a crapshoot. I got a little nervous when we pulled up - it was in a Big Lots shopping center. (Side note - this is one of the sh*tty things about Atlanta - everything's in a freakin strip mall). We go inside and this place looks like a lunch place - not much in the way of ambiance and decor. And they don't server beer or wine. My hubby, being the trooper that he is, was into staying.

And I'm so glad we did. The food was amazing. I personally put a lot of stock in the ambiance of a place so I was a bit disappointed when we first arrived, but the delicious food and giant portions were great for the both of us, and I'm glad we went. Have you ever had one of those experiences? Where you're a bit nervous because of how something appears and then are pleasantly surprised?


  1. I hadn't heard of this app before but I'll have to check it out. I'm glad the restaurant was a winner!
