Adventure, Asian, and Arcade: Letter A Date

Alphabet Dating, Letter A

A while back I was looking for interesting date night ideas on Pinterest and came across the idea of Alphabet Dating. It was everywhere, and I thought it was a cute idea but never actually did anything with it. The idea behind Alphabet Dating is self-explanatory, but I will explain it anyway πŸ™‚ . For each letter of the alphabet you plan a date centered around it.

For example, on Friday night Lyle and I went on a letter A date (completely by accident. It just kind of worked out that way, so we have decided we would continue through the alphabet this year). Friday after work we decided to go on one of our little adventure dates where we get in the car and drive away from home for a little while, and then ask Siri to get us home. As our iPhone tells us to turn left or right we simply do the opposite. We do this until we come across a restaurant we have never been to.

Oh the joys of heated seats on a relaxing date night!

This purposeful defiance toward Siri is how we arrived at Happy Hashi, which just so happened to be an Asian hibachi grill that we didn’t even know existed! It was relatively cheap compared to other hibachi grills that we have been to in the past. They had a great deal of 4 for $30 which included an appetizer, 2 entrees, and a dessert. As we watched the chef prepare Lyle’s salmon and my chicken, we enjoyed talking about our day and talking about our next activity for our adventurous date night.

We had egg rolls, hibachi salmon and chicken, and banana fritters!

After much discussion we decided to stop by an arcade by our house on the way home. We had never been to this arcade because, well to be honest, it looks really run down and dirty. However, since we were being adventurous we decided to take the chance, and we knew that we would have a great time no matter what.

We were right about the place being a little run down, but that certainly didn’t stop us from having loads of fun playing all kinds of games, and winning over 700 tickets so that we could claim our cheapo prizes πŸ™‚ .

Area 51, Lyle’s favorite! I wasn’t half bad at this one πŸ™‚
basketball, arcade, game
I don’t know why but I LOVE playing these basketball ones! Too bad they don’t give out tickets.
Dinoscore, Arcade
Good ol’ Dinoscore…ate our nickels every time…
jackpot, arcade, luck
Lyle won the jackpot on several of the games throughout the date! My bad luck didn’t help us out any. It’s a good thing I married a man with good luck. What would I do without the cheap prizes we won? πŸ™‚

Check out our amazing winnings πŸ˜‰ ! I kept one ticket to put in my journal, and I even got some jewelry! Take a moment to marvel at that gorgeous necklace!

We had a blast on this date, and I would definitely say that our first alphabet date was a success!
