Slick Dog

On Friday I took my lady out for a cost effective time on the town.
(AKA cheap date night)

We dropped off our little girl at my parents (Thanks Mom) and then headed to the highly acclaimed and yet locally owned Grocery Outlet store in Gresham.
I know what you're thinking to yourself right now.... He's good, real good.
And you're justified in that thought.
You see on the first Friday of the month our local bargain store has free wine tasting from 4-7. There were 19 wines to sample and 4 fabulous cheeses with of course, complimentary crackers. We prepared our bag-o-adjectives and hobnobbed as we enjoyed the bouquet of the bountiful reds, whites, and rose.
Sharon found a new favorite that was a rare vintage of White Zin from Coastal Vinters that boasted a whopping price tag of 2.99!
After pairing it with some smoked gouda, that date cost us around 5 dollars.

Here's my lovely bride basking in the experience.

See you there next month

Ahhh. I so missed hearing about ur date nights. You brought great insight into your lives & good place in Kaunas to eat! :) I so value the inside look & experience you entrusted us with. I was listening to some missionaries debrief a little & was reminded of the beauty of our preparations as well as the joy we experienced from your friendship. Thanks & love you guys! Ti
