Burger Wars

Marcus and I had a date scheduled for today for about 6 weeks now. For Lent Marcus gave up hamburgers and I gave up real Coke. We are not Catholic, so we are not required to give anything up for Lent, we just do most years. It's good to sacrifice something you love sometimes.

So anyway, today was the day we had our reunion with hamburgers and Coke. I officially had my reunion with Coke Easter morning, which is the official end of Lent.

So we went to a place that was recommended to us in the Stockyards in Ft. Worth called The Love Shack. It sounded like the perfect place for a date.

All the seating is outside. Thankfully the weather could not have been more perfect. This is the view from our table looking down into the courtyard.

The old Stockyard Hotel is right across the street:

This was my view:

and this:

Notice his burger is already gone. He ate half of mine too and a vanilla milkshake. Also, notice his shirt. Marcus is an iron man so he can eat whatever he wants. He did it 2 and half years ago, but he could do it again today. The iron man is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and then you run a marathon (26.2 miles)! Stud muffin.

More pics of the stockyards.

So about an hour and a half after we ate Marcus pulls up to Jake's. Jake's just won best burger in DFW. He thought it was his duty to check it out. I didn't have it in me to eat again, but I did enjoy another Coke. He said it was NOT the best burger in DFW. He would know too!

If you are not dating your husband, you should. It's still lots of fun!
