Romano’s Macaroni Grill Wine Tasting Dinner

macaroni-grill-logo

A couple weeks ago I got to attend the first Wine Tasting Dinner at my local Romano’s Macaroni Grill.  Every location around the US participated and they plan to do them every month.  It cost $40 per person and included 4 courses and 4 glasses of wine and lasted 2 hours.  SO WORTH THE MONEY !!!

4 courses:

  • Course one was your choice of antipasti… I chose the Bruschetta and my boy friend chose the Sausage and Peppers Flatbread.  The bruschetta was grilled rosemary bread with whipped ricotta, roma tomoatoes, garlic and basil.  IT WAS AMAZING !!!
  • Course two was your choice of soup or salad.  I chose the lobster bisque soup and Rich chose the Bibb + Bleu salad (other choices were a fresh greens salad or tomato basil soup). Both were delicious.
  • Course three was your choice of entree.  We both chose the Signature Truffle Mac & Cheese which was to die for (other choices were Chicken Parmesan or Parmesan Crusted Sole).
  • Course four was your choice of dessert.  I chose the lemon passion which is a citrus cake with lemon curd and whipped cream and Rich chose the Romano’s Cannoli.  Both were delicious.

*Food and wine choices may change from month to month but I am sure they will be just as yummy as this meal was

For the wine pairing you got to pick which wine you wanted from a select list.  I was hoping they would pair the wine for you but they didn’t really do that for us.  Between Rich and I we did get to try pretty much all the wines though.

The next wine tasting dinner is going to take place on Wednesday June 5th from 7-9 pm.  Call your local restaurant to reserve your spot.  Plus if you dine with a group of 6 or more you will receive 20% off.

Clearance AT&T Prepaid iPhone 6s at Target

672E60D7-0684-4D2D-9499-C16C058961E9

My son has broken so many iPhones in the past so today I was getting him an older iPhone 6s and discovered Target had them on clearance (in-store) for only $73.48.  The nice thing about the prepaid phone is that you don’t have to activate it and can just put in your SIM card and use it like a regular phone if you already have a plan .  You don’t have to use it as prepaid !!!  I only know the price for the AT&T prepaid since that is our carrier but other carriers may have them on clearance too (I didn’t ask).

I decided to pick up 2 of them so if he breaks this one I have a back up !!!

Dumbo Soars into Regal 4DX Theaters

dumbo

If you plan to see the new Dumbo movie, I HIGHLY recommend seeing it in 4DX.  Each 4DX auditorium incorporates motion-based seating that is synchronized with more than 20 different effects which allow the audience to connect with movies through motion, vibration, water, wind, snow, lightning, scents, and other special effects that enhance the visuals on-screen. With more than 20 different effects, optimized by a team of skilled editors, it maximizes the feeling of immersion within the movie, beyond the limits of audio and video.  Definitely a mind-blowing experience the whole family can enjoy together.

We went and saw the movie Dumbo at the Regal Point Orlando location in 4DX and it was truly amazing.  You felt the train chugging along as your seat vibrated and wind gently blew in your face making you feel like you are moving with the train. You felt your seat swaying as Colette was on the trapeze or as Dumbo was flying.  The secret is in their special seats. They reminded me of a theme park ride.  The one thing I liked about the chairs is the option to turn off the water feature if you don’t want to get wet.  I kept mine on and was misted with water during key moments of the film like when Dumbo sprayed out the fire with his trunk.

We definitely will be checking the movie schedule to see what other movies will be showing in 4DX because this was such a fun experience !!!
