A Date with Great Music.

So there had been talk around town that there is a new adult hangout in town. Great music. Great food. Great fun. So who wouldn't want to try something out life that? My hubby made plans to take me to The Perfect Note in Hoover, Alabama, on Friday, June 10, 2016, after I had a busy week with church activities. I thought that was so nice and considerate of him. He received tickets from a friend to attend on this particular evening

The Perfect Note is a fine dining restaurant that features a live jazz band. The special guest that evening was Jazz Bassist Michael Manson from Chicago, IL.  He didn't tell me where we were going but I knew it was something nice because he had been talking about it all day. So, I went and purchased something cute and comfortable to wear. I wanted to look like a lady and sexy too. Sometimes ladies, you just have to remind your hubby that he has a LADY and SEXINESS all in one package. 

On a scale of 1-10, I will give The Perfect Note a 6. The only reason they are getting that is because the entertainment was wonderful.  The food was not good and the waiter we had was not pleasant at all.  I ordered the chicken and waffle plate.  Beautifully decorated and presented well. BUT, the chicken was not good and it was too greasy.  It was almost like they reheated the patties in grease. You get 3 chicken patties and 3 triangle waffle pieces with candied pecans and strawberries.  There was also powdered sugar and whip cream on the waffles as well.  It was not good at all.  Many ordered it but maybe I got a bad batch because grease was still heavily in the patty. 

So I asked my waiter if I could order something else because I didn't like it, he gave me a rude look as if he didn't care nor did he believe me. I received another menu and order the hot wings.  Let's just say I ate part of one and took the remaining home. It came with 10 and presented well, once again.  But even my husband tasted it and he said it doesn't taste right. So I didn't want to bother the waiter anymore because he just seemed as he was not into our table.  Hubby ordered the roasted chicken with mashed and roasted sauce.  It smelled horrible. The chicken was burnt and the sauce had a yellow look to it but it was supposed to be brown.  It just wasn't pleasant and it made me lose my appetite. I wanted to leave but I really wanted to hear the music guest. But I made the best of the evening because he made plans and I didn't want to spoil the evening. 

We did get the opportunity to get a dance in together and he even sung to me.  I felt sooooooo loved!! I enjoyed the music a lot.  It brought happiness. It brought a moment of sadness. It brought a feeling that no matter what is going on around me, I'm relaxing and taking in every moment. It was my type of music.  We did grab a bite at Steak N Shake.  On the ride back home, it was nice and peaceful.  

I'm not giving up on The Perfect Note because I love good, live music. But I do think the next time I attend, I will eat prior to attending. I just don't want to be disappointed again. Hopefully, they will consider making a better menu and ordering food from a vendor that's worth it and not go the cheaper route in cutting the customer short. But it still didn't take away from the great evening I had with my hubby.  We both were ALL SMILES at the end of the evening. 

Until next time,
