First Date Fun

I had my first date with Catherine tonight...good stuff.

We met up and headed over to Alleycat's for dinner. She is from Myanmar (Burma), so I doubt that she has had too much exposure to good pizza...Alleycat's didn't disappoint. We chatted, ate some slices, and drank some red wine. It was a great dinner. We knew pretty much nothing about each other, so this was a good time to answer all the requisite questions.

After dinner, we headed over to the Lantern Festival. It was at the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial. The lanterns were incredible. There must have been 50,000 people there, it was packed. We made our way through the crowd and took some great pictures. Catherine's English is pretty choppy, but we did OK. She is a lot of fun...great sense of humor, likes to giggle.

After awhile, it began to rain. We hung out for about a half of hour thinking it might let up...nope, it started to pour. We quickly made our way back to the subway station. We were both soaked and decided to call it a night. While we were waiting in line at the turnstile, she mentioned that she had a great time and wanted to go out again next weekend...alrighty!

We said goodbye and headed our separate ways.

p.s. I'll be posting pics from our night out tomorrow.
