Alley on the Town is back at it again!!
Question? Have you thought about what I shared last month? About the importance of date nights in a marriage?

If you answered yes, AWESOME!!! Love that you are trying to make some fun changes. Date nights are an impactful way to reconnect with your spouse.

If you answered no, I hope this will help inspire you to enjoy some alone time with your spouse and explore some of the wonderful places in Houston and its surrounding areas.

Date nights also help break up the monotony of your everyday normal routine. It’s easy to always go to the same places you are familiar (and comfortable) with BUT I encourage you to try something new together. Houston has SO much to offer. Your options are endless.

OK, OK, not going to beat a dead horse here. I think it’s pretty obvious how I feel about date nights, they are important.

So, you ready to hear about this month’s date-night dining adventure? Yay! Let’s get right to it!

This month, my husband and I decided to head over to the Sugar Land Town Square. It’s a beautiful town square area with tons to do. You can stay, play, shop, dine, and so much more!
We ended up having the most gorgeous spring-like weather for our night out. The square had all its trees lit up which made it super romantic holding hands and walking as we windowed shopped.

We stopped to have dinner at a placed called, Vino & Vinyl. The VERY first thing that caught my eye was the outdoor open bar that was connected to the restaurant. Loved being able to walk straight up to the bar to order a glass of wine all while being outside on the brick paved sidewalk. Tables were available outdoors for those that preferred to dine al fresco.

We grabbed a drink outdoors then decided to head inside. The restaurant had a laid back and relaxed feel that oozed throughout. Immediately making us feel comfortable and not out of place.

There was a turntable located as you walked in along with a huge selection of records on one wall. New releases and re-releases. If you spotted anything you liked you could request for it to be played OR you could purchase the album to take home with you.

Local artist’s work hung throughout the restaurant which made for great conversation with my hubby.

AND as if this place couldn’t get any cooler, the menus were made of recycled album covers!!!

Paul Killingsworth, the owner, was at the restaurant that night and we were able to chat with him about Vino & Vinyl. 

When I asked Paul how he would describe his vision he said,

“We’re all about finding soulful wines and soulful music. Music and wine that have a personality, a unique voice, and a sense of place. Style. Having amazing food to go along, is a bonus.”

Our dining experience was wonderful. The menu had a variety of options to suit a person’s appreciation of taste and flavor.

We started off with a shared artisan cheese board. Then followed that by two of their dinner specials for that night. Their food is made from scratch and sometimes the menu changes based on what is in season. Now, THAT is the kind of place I LOVE to eat at. Fresh local ingredients can take an ordinary meal from ok to one of the best meals you have ever had in your life! The staff helped us select wines that paired well with our meal which sent us into foodie heaven.

They have recently added a brunch to their menu that I can’t wait to check out! It’s on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays from 10am – 3pm. Would love if you guys would head over to try it out.

It’s was very clear to me that the vision of Vino &Vinyl was not just about the food but about the whole dining experience. The music, the wine, the menu options all coming together like a great dinner party. It was like walking into your best friend’s house. 
A place where you come as you are and leave feeling a whole lot better.
