When we talk about dinner and a show 'round these parts we are usually referring to grabbing a bite at a Tex-Mex restaurant or BBQ joint before catching a movie or concert. That makes for a pretty good date night but for our 3 year anniversary we were shooting for a pretty-freaking-amazing date night and we nailed it!
Our anniversay is July 12th and it just so happened that it was also opening night of Jersey Boys at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Since my boy IS a Jersey boy it was perfect. This is the first time either of us had seen a show at the AT&T PAC and it was amazing! The building and accoustics are phenomenal and the show was outstanding. If you have the opportunity you need to see it!

The PAC offers a package that allows you to make a night of it by adding dinner reservations to a group of select restaurants in and around the Dallas Arts District that offer special menus and pricing for theater attendees. We chose Screen Door and couldn't have been happier with the delicious food and service.
|Appetizers... hot crawfish dip with spicy crackers and fried green tomatoes with chili ranch sauce|
|Shawn got Mama's fried chicken w/ sausage gravy, mac n cheese and collard greens.|
The mac n cheese was ridiculous!
|I got shrimp and grits and loved it.|
|Dark chocolate brownie with homemade ice cream and lemon icebox pie.|
Too die for!
