Date Night in Paris (With a Toddler)

Last Friday Rama was working late so Elodie and I went out on a date.

We went to our favorite local pizzeria, Pink Flamingo.

While we waited for our pizza, Elodie colored.

We shared the “Aphrodite,” a delicious pie with slices of grilled eggplant and a big dollop of hummus in the middle. They make unusual pizzas but delicious pizzas at Pink Flamingo.

Here’s a picture of it.

After dinner, we hung out on the leopard print couch for a while and read magazines.

Then we went to a “concert” at Chez Adel, the bar next door, and said “hi” to the bar doggie, a plump little dachshund. It was a really fun night!

Pink Flamingo has a few locations in Paris, but we go to the one near the Canal St. Martin. They have a big dining room that feels really casual and you don’t have to feel self-conscious about your wild child  squirming, screaming, and running around. Another cool think about Pink Flamingo is that you can order your pizza and then go have a seat by the canal and they’ll deliver it to you. They give you a balloon to take with you so they know where to find you. We haven’t done that yet, but maybe this weekend!

Do you go on dates with your kids? What kinds of things do you do?
