Ten Foot Henry

mr handsome and i initially planned to spend our friday night {and ten year wedding anniversary i might add} with two of our very best friends and newlyweds M&D.  but as luck, or rather unluck would have it, a stomach bug took out the newlyweds, so now mr handsome and i are dining solo tonight.
 ...and tomorrow {which is a surprise, and it's killing me, i'm terrible with surprises.  in fact i'm as bad at surprises as i am at swimming}

back to today...

if you know me at all, you know i thrive on finding new and exciting places to eat...so...

meet henry.  he's 10 feet tall, bald and a mascot of calgary scene from the 80's and likely before.  
the venue:  ten foot henry, name sake obvious.  located in the beltline district @ 1209 1st Street SW.  this restaurant focuses heavily on vegetarian dishes, but still offers lots in choice for the carnivore within.
dining family style {also the best style,} dishes come out when ready and are aimed to be shared.

dinner was on point.  i mean roasted carrots on top of avocado puree, and fresh tomatoes with whipped feta, whats not too love? 

cheers to relationship goals and dinner goals.  and the remainder of the weekend celebrating the life we have built together.  i love you mr. handsome.  xo.
