I met my husband 10 years ago, on February 1st 2007, so yesterday was our “day we met” anniversary. We first met at a local bar, Jumby Bay, and it was quite the night. My good friend, Jen, was dating his roommate at the time so Luke tagged along with them. We had a fun time downing SOCO & lime shots and dancing all night. When I left that night I thought that guy was HOT but also a little crazy and I was intrigued. We were engaged five and a half months later.
We knew we wanted to do something last night to celebrate our anniversary so when my mom said she was taking my grandma to play bingo we decided to join. What a difference 10 years makes, drinking & dancing late into the night then; early bird bingo now. Before bingo the four of us went to dinner at The Catch, a seafood & sushi restaurant in Lake Park. I have been there a few times and I really like it. The food is yummy and the atmosphere is relaxing. If you go check it out make sure you sit outside on the back patio!
After dinner we went to Palm Beach Bingo and I was not prepared for how intense bingo can get! We each got an electronic machine and then a bunch of different booklets with our own stamper (which I was a little too excited about.) Everyone around us was really nice about helping us newbies figure out the games. I thought bingo was pretty straightforward but boy was I wrong. There are so many different type of games and ways to win but we had a lot of fun figuring it out. They have these “quickie” rounds and oh my goodness it was too much for me. The game consists of just numbers being called out as fast as the announcer can say them; I could have won a huge jackpot but I would have had no idea because I couldn’t keep up. By the end of the night I had won $10, Luke won $7.10, and mom was the big winner with $125. Poor grandma didn’t win a game but there is always next time! Overall we had a nice night celebrating our anniversary. We may not be going out drinking until the wee hours of the morning anymore but we are having much more fun now. Happy Anniversary honey!!
