I had I think my first date with my husband in maybe 2 years? Where has the time gone? I'm sure we may have sneaked off one time or another with mom watching the kids, but Friday night was the first time to really have DD babysit her sister for a longer period of time. I know, she's 15, but I'm protective. Anyway, we went shopping a bit, then decided to try out my new cell phone's GPS system. It led us right to a restaurant called Tassos. We had heard about it but never been to the restaurant. At first, I was skeptical, because, honestly it looks like a hole in the wall joint. We were only one couple of maybe 5 in there. I figure, it can't be good if no one is coming here. I was wrong.
The place is all dressed up gaudy with greek flags, pictures of people who have stopped in to eat, famous people mind you. There were fake grapes hanging from the ceiling. It was very greek. Kind of like a greek Buca di Beppos! Within a 1/2 hour the place was almost filled. Especially the 2 long tables seen in the photo above. It must have been girls night out because they were both full of girls!
They really have the atmosphere going there. A lovely lady came to our table and enticed my DH to buy me a rose. An older gentlemen with a crazy mustache asked to take our picture with a polaroid camera. Both were bought for a price, but as DH says, its an experience!
The food was delicious. Greek salad and a plate of Gyro fixings. For dessert we had Baklava, but we ate it so fast I didn't have time to snap a picture.
During our dinner beautiful music was being played, we shouted out 'Oopa!' when everyone else did. After dinner a man with white hair and a white beard came out to the dance floor and played 'Conch shell Blues'. On a real Conch shell! It was fabulous! I can't wait to go back!
I think the pictures came out pretty clear for being a phone camera. I love my enV phone!
