Friday my wife and I finally get our romantic anniversary dinner in a lighthouse
Posted by: DinerDave

Several years ago I heard of a lighthouse that you could "rent" for the evening and have a restaurant catered dinner. Could not figure out where it was, could not find it anywhere. Well, I was looking in the wrong region. This past April, I stumbled onto the location!
The lighthouse is in Newburyport, Ma. In the top, where the light would be is all remodeled and set up for a dinner experience for two, or four if desired. I called the contact number at the society for lighthouse preservation, and made the rather large (to me) donation for the reservation. Turns out it is very popular, as our anniversary is May 4th, but the first weekend date available was Sept 21st.
The lighthouse is all ours from 6 pm till 10:30 pn. Selected our restaurant that will provide wait staff and food. The weather is calling for clearing skies as the sun goes down. I'm hoping for a nice transition from daylight to night overlooking Newburyport. There are some nice pics at lighthousepreservation.org.
My wife and I both enjoy Newburyport and go there several times a year. When we checked out the location on our last visit a month or so ago, the lighthouse is actually about a quarter mile down from the port and town common where we attend events! Who knew? Not me, obviously!

Actual rule #4 under dining guidelines...
"It should go without saying, (but needs to be said for a few), that although our romantic lighthouse dinners are meant for lovers, it does not mean it is meant for lovemaking. Please save yourself, and our waitstaff from embarrassment and leave that activity for the privacy of your home."

Thanks, Our anniversary, on the 4th, and my wife's birthday on the 27th, with Mother's Day sandwiched in-between. As my daughter says,"May is the month of Mom."

ROFL!

I would assume DD would only do the Wine, Dine part at the lighthouse.

I would also assume that a grand gesture deserves the Hat Trick, later in the evening.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

Only in a worst case "hurry up and get it over with" scenario.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
