lately, dekel and i have been finding our date nights redundant. either we go to the same places or order the same cocktail. the conversation is always entertaining and since we have our trip coming up, we have lots to talk about and look forward to. but living in the northern part of israel, the pubs / restaurants are scattered and driving is not something either of us enjoys. ramat yishay is a neighborhood 10 minutes away from where we live, in tel adashim, and lo and behold a new wine bar open up. i met a friend there monday evening (she suggested the place) and after enjoying the atmosphere (and the wine!), i knew this was an optional new date spot.
so, dekel and i dressed up & went there last night (i forgot the name of the place) and ordered a bottle of gewürztraminer. the place is mellow with patio seating and a chef who comes to your table himself to tell you about the specials. we came with full bellies after shabbat dinner, but the wine hit the spot.
here are some photos from friday night:
he was actually playing with the camera, we made sure to sober up before driving home by indulging in forzen yogurt with loaded fruity and chocolaty toppings. =)
all in all, a fantastic date.
