Texas De Brazil and anniversary photos

The anniversary festivities continued!

Sunday Timmy and I did a little shopping downtown. I got some more cute accessories (a ring and two or three necklaces); well, Timmy bought them for me, so, I have to wait until Christmas to get them.

After shopping we went to Texas De Brazil. Texas De Brazil is a Brazilian steakhouse. They bring the meat (beef, pork, and poultry) around to you on swords. I'm not a big meat eater, so, I mostly ate bread and cheese, but it is still a fun experience. It is usually $50 a person for dinner, however, if you sign up for their mailing list, you will get a buy one get one free coupon for your birthday and anniversary. $25 a person isn't bad for a buffet where the meat is quality and cooked fresh.

Monday Timmy and I got some photos taken for our anniversary at Sears and Target. We did the package deals so we could get some photos taken for cheap. This is one of the Target photos:

After photos and some more shopping (this time for the necessities, not the fun stuff), we went to the Brew and View. The theater is so gorgeous that it is almost a shame that it is being used for a movie theater. I don't think we'll go back to the Brew and View until they fix the sound issue; the volume was really loud, and based on the reviews for the Brew and View on Yelp, it is a reoccurring problem. For the $5.00 per person ticket price you usually get to see three movies, however, that night they were only playing two (with the first movie playing again after the second). If you fill out a survey on their web-site, the tickets are even cheaper. Drive was the first movie, followed by Machine Gun Preacher. Drive was good, however, Machine Gun Preacher reminded me of a Lifetime movie written by overzealous Christians; the movie had so much potential, however, a lot of it was just too cheesy to take seriously.

Yesterday Timmy and I hung out at home for the first part of the day. We had a yummy lunch of Timmy's Beam and Coke ham, baked sweet potatoes, cottage cheese with green onions, and dinner rolls. We watched one of our favorite shows, The Good Wife, and after that we started watching Game of Thrones; Timmy had been asking me for quite a while to start watching Game of Thrones.

That night we went to Democracy Burlesque. It is not a burlesque show. It is a political comedy skit show. They also had performances by a local band and a stand-up comedian. The skits were all funny and on point. For the $15 ticket price you get $3 towards food or drink, and some of the proceeds go to support something local (last night it was Chirp radio). It was quite fun and I think we may got next month as well.
