Husband and I have been married for two months now (where has the time gone eh?) and in that time we haven’t had one date night. We used to go out for food all the time but ‘cos of the holiday and moving out we’ve been trying to build our savings back up instead of having fun.
After a spontaneous purchase of a Tastecard (£1 for two months) we decided that it was time to loosen up the purse strings, forego the PJ’s for one night and get our butts off the sofa. We decided on So Bar as they have a pretty varied menu and even if you don’t have a Tastecard, it’s still pretty cheap.
We both opted for the pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries and man oh man, it was good. The bbq pulled pork wasn’t too chewy or slimy and the sauce was delicious. I personally think So Bar have the best sweet potato fries in the county (crunchy, delicious and go perfectly with garlic mayo) so choosing them instead of chips was a no brainer.
We weren’t at So Bar very long but we left feeling very content. We people watched from our window seat, discussed future plans and ear wigged on some very optimistic youth (One of them was hoping to get a mortgage for £300 a month with his pot washer’s wage – Good luck kid). Bar taking a photo of my meal and googling something I barely picked my phone up which made a change cos I’m a typical millennial who always has their phone in their hand.
I think one of my aims for the rest of 2017 is to stop worrying so much about money and have more mid-week plans pencilled in my diary. Usually I spend my evenings slobbed on the couch in my jammies so it’s nice to have something to look forward to – It really lifts my spirits and it makes the working week a little bit more bearable.
Are you a bit of a sloth like me when it comes to weeknights or are you more of a social butterfly?
