Impromptu get together

Just when I was feeling like nothing was going my way, I was instant messaged yesterday, on Facebook, by one of my local friends.  She asked if I was still having scrapbooking at my house last night.  I had put a meetup on my groups's calendar saying that I was but no one had RSVPed yes.  So I told her that I was planning to pull my stuff out, for lack of anything better to do.

She had an alternative idea.

Margaritas and appetizers at one of the local Mexican restaurants.  I quickly RSVPed yes. 

I spent an hour making myself cute and headed out for several hours of gossip and girl talk.  And a pitcher of margaritas.  It was an awesome night.

This was a Mexican restaurant that had a liquor license, so 7 year olds are welcome!

Saw an awesome place in Seattle on Food Network last night and now I can't remember the name. Dahlia?

Dahlia Louge, one of Tom Douglas's several restaurants. Pricy but excellent!

Seriously, though, I can't get in good girlfreind time when kids are with us, at a restaurant. Somebody melts down within minutes and it's over in an hour. But it's an appetizer! Ideally I could find another girlfriend to come along to park/hke/snowshoe, or to my home for dinner, so kids could play while adults talk. So far no luck - moms in my hood are way busy. But that's what dating is for, I figure, the guy coming along on a family adventure so you, the mom, can have some adult talk. :) And if they really like you the guys take your family out to places like Dahlia Louge, ha ha!
