While we were dating...

At the time that I met A, he was working nights at Salt Lake International Airport. That somewhat restricted when we could have a date. We started our "2 AM Pie-Run" dates about that time.

There is nothing better when you are getting to know someone, than to have a restaurant pretty much to yourself. Usually we didn't have a whole lot of time, so it really was usually just pie and cocoa, and it almost always was at 2 AM. Whether we'd go to Denny's, Dee's, or Village Inn, we were usually the only ones there for the hour or two that we could (unless it was a Friday/Saturday... Those nights we shared the restaurant with the "too drunk to drive but within walking distance of Denny's so I'll have time and food to sober-up" crowd. They are a pretty funny group).

Since we've been married, any chance we get to repeat these kinds of dates is awesome. Last year, when we lived in Hawaii, we were able to go to a restaurant called Zippy's. They were open 24 hours and just down the hill from us in Kapolei (although they are all over the island of Oahu). Here in Juneau, however, there are no 24 hour restuarants, so that kind of sucks. The place that is open the latest is a waffle place out in Auke Bay near the college. They are open until 12:00, but due to their proximity to the college, they are usually really busy.

Maybe we've grown out of the need for those kinds of dates. I hope not. But I think that any time we go "down south" to the "lower 48" that we'll seek out a restaurant where we can have 2 AM Pie.

That's awesome :). Sorry to hear there's no 24 hr places there, you might have to try either homemade or store-bought pies in the backyard at 2am. I know, it's not the same, but this is coming from someone whose "date nights" by and large are courtesy of Blockbuster, LOL.
