Beauty and the Beast Off Broadway!

After the Superbowl 4.k Race, I headed to the gym for my long swim and after that, came home and started getting ready for our 'road-trip' date! We were headed down to Tucson (100 miles away) to have dinner and watch Broadway's 'Beauty and The Beast'. I have been SO excited for this for weeks and was ecstatic that it was finally here!

Since the show started at 8:00pm, we left around 4:30 to make our 6:00 dinner reservations. The sunset on the drive down there was amazing! 
'Mr. Sprinkles and Glitter' looked up a bunch of nice restaurants in Tucson and we both agreed on Feast- plus it ended up working out perfectly, because it was about 3 miles from the theater.

OH. MY. GOSH! Everything about this restaurant was perfect! The atmosphere, the menu, the food-- seriously everything! The only bummer is that we were running out of time and couldn't get dessert. <<Insert SUPER sad face!>>

We quickly headed over to the theater at UofA, picked up our tickets, and headed inside to our seats. Our seats were great- second row in the center. I was hoping to be able to see the orchestra, like we could at Lion King in New York, but there was a wall up and we couldn't.

The show was SO good! I loved every second of it! The talent of everyone involved is truly incredible. It was longer than Lion King, but the time flew by. It was really, really well done. The Candlestick and Clock were definitely my favorite!!

Once the show was over, we decided to head back home- even though it was 11:30pm. (We originally were going to get a hotel, but wanted to head home and be able to get in a bike ride on Sunday morning, and that probably wouldn't have happened if we spent the day in Tucson.) We stopped for gas and while I was pumping gas, 'Mr. Sprinkles and Glitter' went inside for soda to keep me awake and came out with ice cream cones since we didn't get to have dessert at Feast. He really is the sweetest guy ever.

We finally made it home around 1:30am and I have to say it was one of my favorite dates. The long drive alone together, dinner, and the amazing show- couldn't ask for more.

What's was your favorite date?
