I grew up in a large city so when we moved to our small rural town, I had a bit of a culture shock. Suddenly my shopping and eating options were drastically reduced. However, there are a lot of advantages to small town life. A lot of interesting experiences can be had in a small town. Our Valentine's date is the perfect example..
This is The Snug Cafe
Last year The Snug changed hands and the new owners decided to start a new tradition. They opened the restaurant for Valentine's dinner. Reservations were required and seating was limited. When we arrived, this is what greeted us.
The owner kicked off the night by introducing everyone right down to the dish washer. The chef and the owner mingled with us constantly checking to see how we were enjoying our food, To top off the night, each lady was presented with a rose. It was so fun and unexpected.
You know there are wonderful four star restaurants in the "big city" that have classically trained chefs with menus written in a language I couldn't pronounce let alone read. I am sure their food is sublime and romance abounds. But give me The Snug any day. Laughing with my sweetie over a great meal surrounded by friends wins out every time.
Hope you has an equally fun Valentine's Day!
