If you’ve spent some time on our blog you’ll know that we love spending time with our children. In fact, we usually don’t go to many events unless they are kid friendly. This weekend however was “date night”. Hubby and I took some time to ourselves this weekend for some foodie fun exploring different restaurants in Baltimore, Maryland. Both my husband and I love good food and trying new dishes (OK, he likes to try new dishes. I’m a work in progress. LOL), so food is always a big part of our date night experiences. It’s important to spend time alone with your spouse to nurture your marriage. Just because you’re married and have children doesn’t mean romance is out the window!
Foodies Date Night
Below are a few photos of our night on the town.
First stop was a trip to Lexington Market. I’ve lived in Maryland for 13 years and this was the first time I visited the historic market. It’s filled with just about any type of food vendor you can think of, fresh produce and clothing vendors too. Some nights you can even be entertained with live Jazz in the center of the market. Now this is not a romantic spot at all but we love raw oysters and crab cakes and Faidleys Seafood, which is housed inside the market, is known for being the best in the area. They did not disappoint. The food was fresh and served in generous portions.
Next we visited Fells Point, a waterfront neighborhood in Baltimore. A great place for a date night, Fells Point is progressive area filled with lots of character, local eateries, pubs and a nice view of the harbor.
The 11th Annual Privateer Festival was taking place in the area. Being the festival goer that I am of course I had hubby check it out with me. Honestly, I knew very little about pirates except for what I’ve seen on T.V. and in the movies so it was pretty interesting listening to Privateer enthusiasts share their knowledge. A pirate is a person who robs or commits illegal violence at sea or on the shores of the sea whereas a Privateer is an armed ship that is privately owned and manned, commissioned by a government to fight or harass enemy ships. I’m sure our son would have enjoyed the costumes and our daughter would have loved learning about the many successful female Privateers that were commissioned at that time, but I digress, back to date night.
After checking out the festival we headed over to Thames Street Oyster House which is right in the heart of Fells Point. Let me tell you, the food is delicious and the service is fantastic! We had Lobster Mac and Cheese and Pheasant Ravioli. We really enjoyed ourselves.
