Date Night with Abbie

by Meghann on July 11, 2009

Check out my hot date from tonight. ๐Ÿ˜‰


I know what you mean, I’m jealous of her beauty too. ๐Ÿ™‚

I felt guilty leaving Abbie home alone all day, that when I went to leave for dinner I just could not do it again. I made a split decision as I was walking out the door to change my plans and take Abbie for a night out on the town at a dog friendly restaurant I have been wanting to try.


310 Park South is one of many trendy restaurants that line beautiful Park Ave in Winter Park. I love this street and the yuppie atmosphere that goes with it.


Upon being seated Abbie was promptly served a bowl of water with ice.


I tried to get a picture of her bobbing for the ice, but the little booger stopped as soon as the camera came out. Not cool, Abbie.

It took me a while to decide on my meal. I was debating between the Tuna Fillet salad and the Portobello & Vegetable Sandwich. Upon quizzing my server on which of the two she would prefer I decided to take her advice and ordered the sandwich.


The Portobello & Vegetable Sandwich consisted of grilled marinated zucchini, yellow squash, portabello mushroom, roasted red pepper and melted Provolone cheese. Served on a wheat roll.


The vegetables were all marinated in a homemade balsamic vinaigrette that gave the sandwich a sweet taste. It was very tasty and a pleasure to eat. Abbie enjoyed the couple of bites I gave her as well and happily ate up an droppings.

On the side I requested a Garden Salad with the Soy Ginger dressing on the side.


The side salad was a little simple for my taste, but still a great compliment to the sandwich.

Unfortunately as soon as we finished dinner the dark clouds that had been hovering overhead decided to open up and pour. So much for the remainder of the plans for date night, which included a trip to the dog park.

Instead we came back home to cuddle on the couch while watching Tristan and Isolde and indulging in hot tea and dark chocolate.


Well, actually the dark chocolate is for me, but Abbie did get a nice dog treat. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think Abbie enjoyed date night. You can tell by her current passed out state.


I guess Tristan and Isolde was a little too much for her. ๐Ÿ™‚

That sandwich looks AMAZING! And Abbie is too cute. It’s so nice they gave her ice water! My sister told me she took her dog to Starbucks recently and they offered him . . . a cup of whipped cream? Weird, right? Lol.

That is so cool that you took Abbie out for a little date. Could you have ordered off the menu for her? Do they do animal food?

21 Stacey July 12, 2009 at 9:54 am

I feel guilty when I leave my doggie multiple times too! She gives me this look like “You are leaving, again?!” Haha. It works every time ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you got a date night in with your little beauty ๐Ÿ™‚

22 Matt July 12, 2009 at 11:24 am

26 Melissa S. July 12, 2009 at 7:58 pm

i totally went there w/ brad after we left your place from universal…and had the same sandwich. but what i liked the most was that they didn’t put lemon in your water, a but a slice of cucumber! i don’t know about you,but i thought that was the most refreshing thing ever!!!!
