Progressive Date

Every heard of a progressive dinner?

A progressive dinner is a dinner party in which each course is prepared and eaten at a different residence or location.  I have heard of a few variations, including a fast-food progressive dinner.  I don’t recall ever participating in an official progressive dinner but for date night Saturday Derek and I had our own version.  We’re calling it a Progressive Date.  We began with dinner at Southern Culture Kitchen & Bar.  Thanks to a Living Social deal we were able to “splurge” a bit more than we normally would have.  This was our first time to try this restaurant and we were so glad we did!  Greenville friends, if you have not eaten here, do it!  You won’t be disappointed!  While I really wanted to try their banana pudding in a mason jar, we already had plans for our second stop for the evening.

My sister’s birthday was Sunday and we were in charge of picking up the cake.  Mom had ordered the cake from Brick Street Cafe.  This just happens to be one of my favorite Greenville restaurants {if not my most favorite!}.  And they just happen to have the best cake.  Dessert at Brick Street was a must.  I mean, we were going to be there anyways, it’d be silly not to sit down for a few minutes and eat cake, right?  My cake of choice is the coconut cake.  Derek’s choice is peanut butter pie.  We were both full very content from dinner so we decided sharing a slice would be wise.  {Plus, if you’ve ever had cake at Brick Street then you know 1 slice could feed a family!}  We had to compromise on our cake selection.  We chose German chocolate.  The two of us couldn’t even finish the 1 slice!

Brick Street Cafe is in downtown Greenville.  My favorite Greenville coffee shop, Coffee Underground, happens to be downtown too.  Convenient, huh?  Wanna guess where our third and final stop for the evening was?  It was most certainly Coffee Underground for a latte.  Granted, it doesn’t top Seattle, but it’s close enough.  Certainly satisfied my coffee appetite.

I was so grateful for our Progressive Date.  It’s been a long time since we’ve had a real date.  We really enjoyed each other.  We laughed, we didn’t talk about all the chaos and circumstances of our life right now, and we didn’t even talk about our kids!  We just had a good time together.  We made it back to my parents house, which is currently “home”, and ended our date with a couple episodes of Duck Dynasty.  Because, really, what says “date night” better than Duck Dynasty?!
