An interesting meal for an interesting date.
You know how after a certain age, calling your boyfriend a “boy” friend sounds childish and embarrassing? Mid-20’s isn’t old, but it is starting to feel not-so-young. Tonight marked our One Year “Dating” Anniversary for my husband and me. Ruben and I generally don’t do anything spectacular besides reminisce on such occasions. Thank God we’ve always had a good open communication – it helps that we were true friends years before ever being involved romantically.

And so it was pure coincidence that my boss offered me a pair of Magic Tickets for tonight (they lost – this season doesn’t look good for Orlando = ). It was fun and the seats were great. While downtown, Ruben took me to a fun spot called Hamburger Mary’s.

Not sure if you’ve ever heard of the franchise, but if not you may want to research before agreeing to come here (Clue: Mary may not be a “Mary”). Personally, I thought it was a really fun experience and the food was fantastic.

Every Wednesday night, there is a sort of “Trivia Night” hosted by a man who is incredibly vulgar. Still, the experience is entertaining and gets everyone laughing.

As soon as you walk in, it’s quite easy to figure out what kind of party there is inside. The room was crowded and loud – not too loud, but enough to feel the very casual theme of Hamburger Mary’s.

This photo frame is just one of several photos and posters throughout the dining room of Hamburger Mary’s. The whole dining room is extremely colorful and feels warm and bright day or night.

Below is a photo of the booth’s fabric and the wall beside it pained in lime green as well as a photo of the front of a menu.

Ruben opted for The Queen “Mary” Burger – anything with grilled onions and bacon will usually catch his eye on a burger menu. I have to say, it was one of the prettiest burgers I’ve ever seen.

Since this was my first time at Mary’s I opted for the basic Mary Burger. It was really good, though next time I will likely ask for more of the “Mary’s special sauce”.

We left hungry, happy, and entertained.
