It is no surprise that I love to date. I mean, I can get around. I date my husband, my friends, my mom, my in-laws, and in desperate measures, I date my children. My cousin gave us tickets to see Celtic Knights. I wasn’t surprised that my husband didn’t want to go because he
is lame isn’t interested in amazing things like eating out and seeing shows.
My daughter, on the other hand is not lame, loves amazing things and was pumped to go! We decided to use a Groupon (Am I the only one obsessed with Groupon/Livingsocial/Sweetjack?) to eat out since I am still going strong with March Project 12. Salsaritas was not happening anymore…even though we have only been once all month, we are over it.
We went to Fujo Uptown Bistro, which is an Asian bistro and sushi bar right on College Street.
For our appetizer, we chose Crispy Tofu in a special sauce. It was good, but if you are wondering the “special” sauce was soy sauce. I like the idea of eating tofu…I just don’t like eating it as much as I like the idea of eating it.
Kadyn loves miso soup…but this wasn’t her favorite. She likes the miso soup at Nakato’s the best. We used a Groupon for that a few weeks ago when we went on a three generation date with my mom. (yes. I celebrate half birthdays too. anything to date anyone.)
She ordered “sushi” This is their philly roll…the salmon is smoked, but she thought she was really hot stuff eating raw fish and I didn’t have the heart to tell her it was cooked.
I got Volcano Beef. This was on fire when they bought it to me and fire is always fun. It was fantastic…the veggies were al dente, beef was tender and the shrimp was spicy!
Kadyn and I decided we would give this place 3 thumbs up. (5 being so totally awesome). The service was great, and my entrée was fantastic. The app, soup, and her sushi were just okay. We decided we would go back…but only if we had a coupon!
Charlotte’s beautiful skyline–we walked the few blocks to the McGlohan Theater to see Celtic Knights. No photos during the show. If you get the chance to see this…it is amazing. The dancing, singing, playing of the instruments, and the comedy. I was in tears (of course) seeing some of the audience members sing along to the songs. You could just tell they were proud of their heritage.
