Do you recall your first date with your spouse?
Chrissy and my first date was a double date with my sister and her future husband.
We went to Joy Tsin Lau, an upscale Chinese restaurant in Philadelphia. That date happened over twenty years ago. It was the winter of 1991.
It’s funny what you do and don’t remember of events so long ago.
What I do remember:
- I drove the four of us
- It was very cold out
- I had to pay for parking
- We had a blast together
- There were big fish in a big fish tank
- The food was great
- It was Chrissy’s first time at the restaurant but not mine
What I don’t remember:
- What I ate
- What we talked about
- The ride to and from the restaurant
- How much it cost
We have been on countless dates since then. But that one is special. It was our first.
We drove by Joy Tsin Lau this summer when we were in Philadelphia. It is still there and we took the picture above.
What about you? What are your memories of your first date? What did you do? Where did you go? We would love to hear from you.
