Last week, before we went to “Alton Brown Live,” Mr. Wonderful and I had dinner at Crescent Moon.
We call it our “Winchester.”
We don’t go there very often now that we have kids and feel old. But once in a blue moon, I don’t have anything left on my “must visit” restaurant list, and we’re faced with a date night and no reservation. So we head to Crescent Moon.
It’s comfortable to us. We know exactly what we’ll order (a veggie melt for me, a chicken sandwich for him, a good beer on tap for both of us).
The two of us have been going to Crescent Moon since our early dating days when we drank too much beer and killed it playing trivia. We hosted our very first fundraiser there (anyone remember the beer tasting, Taste for a Cure?). We’ve celebrated birthdays there, as well as Mardi Gras, New Year’s Eve and Oktoberfest.
Do you have a “Winchester”?
A “Winchester” is that date night spot that isn’t romantic.
The grub is bar food, and most people have their eyes trained on a TV. But, you love it all the same.
Last Thursday, there wasn’t even a question whether or not we’d go to Crescent Moon. It’s not like we’d forgotten to make reservations somewhere else. It had been so long since just the two of us had been there … it was almost like we had to catch up with an old friend.
