Dinner and a dance
I'm planning a birthday dinner / dance for my wife in a couple weeks and told her I'd find a place where she can wear her little black dress and not feel overdressed. Now I have to find that place - any suggestions?
While we're at it, any chance any of these places also have dancing - does that exist anywhere? What ever happened to dinner and dancing - not hip hop, house, reggae, etc - I'm too old for that. Just good food and slow dancing, like in the movies - romantic :) Any ideas?
You betcha by golly wow the Old Mill still does romantic dinner & dancing nights. Now depending on the "I'm too old for that" factor, this may excite you. The Platters are performing Nov 23 & 24. The food's decent according to friends of mine that go there and other friends that perform there. I, personally, have not been.
If you're game for something a little more upbeat, check out the Reservoir Lounge. They have live swing jazz every night. Friday nights are fabulous -- same band every Friday -- a 6-piece swing band. The leader even wears a zoot suit. Always lots of folks dancing away. I've never eaten dinner there, but have had some apps and drinks, both of which have been good. Great atmosphere, too. Downstairs, a bit funky with exposed brick and beams.
