Date Night with Dave Chappelle


Saturday was date night.  Mj bought tickets to see Dave Chappelle so we made a night of it.   I have restaurant.com credit BUT the restaurant we wanted to go to had a $10.00 for $25.00 offer if you just buy it so that's what I did.   Also, that way I get to "save" the credit for future use.  I like knowing I have things even if I don't use them.  It's all part of my hoarding addiction.  And because it's one of Discover's shopping partners I got 20% cash back on the purchase.  I know it's only $2.00 but it adds up.  Gosh I love deals.  I'm still excited about it.

We decided to try something different and go with an Indian restaurant. Gourmet India had really good food but sadly the service sucked.  I got Chicken Tikka.  Not very adventurous but oh so good.  Mj got Lamb Tikka and we got two orders of piping hot Naan bread which was delicious.  Our waitress came by and took our drink order after a bit of a wait but after that we had to ask her if we could order then ask whomever passed by for whatever else we needed.  It's not even a very big place so I'm not sure why providing us service was such an impossible task.

After that we went to a little shop for dessert.  I got Espresso flavored Gelato and Mj got a Chocolate and Strawberry Crepe.  There is so much energy downtown and I really enjoyed being out in it. 


The comedy show didn't start until 10:30pm.  That's when I'd normally be winding down a night out so it's a good thing we both got naps that day.  Even so I could feel my eyes wanting to shut it down half way through the show.  One of the oddest things about the show is that he smoked cigarettes through the whole thing.  He walked on stage cigarette in hand trailing a plume of smoke behind him and when one burned out he lit up another.  I was thinking that he either has a really bad addiction or he's trying to be cool but I'm going with addiction because I don't think anybody thinks smoking is cool anymore.  And it's really, really odd because there is no indoor smoking in California.  You can't smoke inside anywhere.  His show his rules; I guess.   He's not skinny anymore.  Apparently, he's gone out and gotten all buff and to show it off he performed in his gym clothes.  He had on a black sleeveless T Shirt emphasizing those bulging biceps and grey athletic pants pushed up to his knees.  I found myself wishing there were subtitles like I put on about 90% of the time when we watch movies at home.  I ended up missing a lot of jokes just because I couldn't quite catch what he was saying.  I think I've laughed harder at other comedy shows but he was funny and I did enjoy it. 

That night marks the first time I've ever worn boots and a dress in my life.  Ever.  While I realize it's pretty much a common every day occurrence for me it felt like I was taking a fashion risk.  It's also the first time I've worn that dress.  I've never really considered myself a "dress person" but I'm trying to be.  I got it about 2 years ago for $12.00 at Ross and it's been sitting in the closet with the tags on ever since.  I also have a really cute pair of peep toe red pumps I got a few years ago that probably still have the price sticker on the bottom.  And that's just the half of it.  Like I said, I'm a hoarder.

It was a great date night.

You guys are soooo adorable. I'm glad you had an overall good date night. You looked fabulous in your dress and the boots complimented it very well (although all I can see is the top of them). You rocked the look! Hopefully you'll venture out and do it again...or maybe you'll wear those sexy red pumps to your next date night. :)

That sounds like a great date night!! I LOVE Indian food! & that's too bad that Dave Chapelle is a chain-smoker...disappointing!

You guys look so adorable! Looks like you had a wonderful night.

Faith said...

hehe, i love that you call yourself a hoarder too funny!

that is so strange that he smoked throughout the whole show. in NY you can't smoke indoors at all ... i'm thinking he broke the law because even if it is his show i'm thinking he still can't smoke. i would have been pissed since smoke makes my eyes so red and itchy and Sean has asthma and smoke makes everything worse.

and he's not skinny anymore? i can't picture it, lol. i always see him as a skinny dude.

but i'm glad y'all had a wonderful time! if anything he is pretty funny :)

Those desserts look mouthwatering! YUM! I'm glad you and MJ got a good date night in, comedy shows are fun. We saw Bob Saget once and he was hilarious. That's weird that he performed with a cigarrette the whole time, I guess he just likes to smoke! I like your outfit, it looks very "fall".

Marie Young said...

He's buff?!?!? I have to see that. NOw you've got me googling him...LOL

Rachel Murphree said...

It was kind of weird that he kept smoking; that was kind of weird, but I had heard before that he does that. I was planning to comment on how cute your outfit was, before the paragraph about it being a departure from your usual. The whole outfit looks great on you! And I admire your deal- finding ways! 12 bucks for the dress? Awesome!

Rachel said...

That sounds like a great date night!! And Dave Chapelle is too funny but the smoking thing is gross!

I saw Dave Chapelle years ago when he came to visit my college. He was skinny then haha. It's too bad he's a chain smoker. I feel like that deters from his workouts...right?! Either way... you looked cute as ever in your newly discovered dress! Glad you had a great date night out with the hubs!

have you seen the clip with dave chappelle and wayne brady? OMG it is my favorite! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bONBlJNt0I0

Cute outfit. I probably would still be interested in seeing Dave Chappelle, just to see how he is performance since the Comedy Central days, but I could do without the smoking. I need to figure out the restaurant.com and groupon stuff I will cut a coupon so this is a way for me save on restaurants.

I thought you looked super cute!!! I have hundreds of dresses but I hardly ever wear them, because sometimes I like sitting like a man hahaha. Mostly, because I'm a HUGE clothes hoarder.

I like seeing famous people perform but find that I'm always kind of let down a bit. I saw Pauly Shore once, and he sucked. But I don't think he was ever that funny...my bf at the time wanted to go. I have a hard time understanding Dave too...I depend on subtitles.

Unfortunately Indian restaurants are never perfect. It's either food or service, never both. At least the naan was good! That's half the battle.

Very cute outfit. So impressed with the price!

10:30 pm? I'm usually fast asleep. :)

I love indian food! So good. Its def. a hit or miss on the service though. Cute outfit! looks like you had fun.

I love Dave Chapelle, he is hilarious. I would have been laughing all night too I am sure. I mean who doesn't like the stories about when keeping it real goes wrong :). Glad you had a great date night despite all the hurdles.

You are such a cute couple by the way and your hair is definitely getting longer.

Lovelyladyjb said...

That's really weird about Dave Chappelle, and I cannot imagine him being buff. I think its funny you wish you had subtitles, sometimes he does mumble and that's usually when he's being the funniest. I would be upset about the smoking for sure, I think its just kind of odd.

I think you're outfit looks really cute and I'm glad you took the plunge with the boots! :)

I hope you had fun! You look great!

Love date nights I hate when events begin late!! But its all worth it looks like with the food and company. My hubby was wondering what happened to dave chapelle so will let him know he is still working!!

Janna Renee said...

I love boots with dresses, so you go girl! I think that's so cool that y'all got to see Dave Chapelle! I love his comedy.

Amy said...

You look good in the dress with boots! Definitely a fashionista. I forgot about how good naan is. I just might have to go on a hunt for an Indian restuarant now to get some!

Ashlyn McMillen said...

Come on girl.. next date night break out those red pumps!!
