Chris' second surprise for our Valentine's date was Medieval Times and I was beyond excited! I may have even screamed a little in the car when I finally figured out where we were going.
I have always wanted to venture out to Medieval Times and was a tad bit jealous when my brother took a history field trip there in high school. Chris booked the Valentine's package which included our dinner and show, flags to support our knight (go Blue!), a light up rose, keepsake picture, your choice of champagne or beer with souvenir glasses and a pass through the torture museum.
We arrived early, as they suggest, to check in and take advantage of our package add ons. They must make a killing on all of the souvenirs and memorabilia that I saw parents buying for their kids.
Once the castle was cleared out (they normally have shows at 2:30, 5:00 and 7:45 on a Saturday), we were directed to the blue section and our seats with our pewter dining set.
During the show, the meal is severed. The "bill of fare" for the night included tomato bisque, focaccia bread, roasted chicken, bbq spare rib, herb roasted potato and pastry of the castle. To keep in line with the time period, there is no silverware.
We dinned and watched the knights compete in games and then joust. I was really hoping we would have the winner for the night, but after taking down the yellow knight our knight fell to the eventual champion - the black and white knight.
We had such a fun night and I'm so thankful for a thoughtful husband that is helping me cross off my 30 before 30 goals!
