We arranged to meet at Shrimpys Blues Bistro on Blind Pass, St. Petersburg. As parking is for all the plaza, we met a little before 5.
We met outside the restaurant and my date was a real gentleman. He opened the door for me. We sat at a booth inside as it was so cold. I had a margarita, and he had one of my favorite drinks, vodka and cranberry. We chatted for a little while until our drinks arrived.
We then checked out the menu we both went for the bowl of Shrimp & Lobster Bisque. I chose the Mardi Gras Pasta, which was blackened shrimp, and scallops, Alfredo with spinach and grape tomatoes. He had the Crab Cake Dinner.
The food was absolutely delicious. I could only eat half of the entree. We both left the 2 slices of garlic toast that came with the soup, and I left the bread with the pasta. He left the mashed potato. So, we both limit the carbs. That’s a good start.
We were only in the restaurant for just over an hour, so I got back to the timeshare before the after-sunset glow had gone.
It was a first date, so yes, a kiss. I know you were all wondering. We plan on meeting for lunch next time, and somewhere halfway.
