It's Valentine's Day and I Need Closure!

As many of our followers may or may not know Katie and Elaine are both single, so this year we decided who better to spend Valentine's Day with than each other. Another fun fact you might not be aware of is that Valentine's Day is Katie's absolute favorite day of the entire year. As of today the countdown to VDAY 2013 will begin (364 days left!). Katie LOVES love and Elaine loves Katie enough to tolerate all of the hearts/candy/flowers/everything else associated with Valentine's Day including chick flicks.

Taking all of this into consideration, we decided to venture outside the 43215 zip code to try the Movie Tavern which is located in Hilliard. The Movie Tavern is just like any other movie theater except for that you can eat dinner and drink while you watch the movie. Because it was Valentine's Day we gathered up all our single girlfriends and got tickets to see The Vow. For those of you who have not heard of it or seen the trailer, The Vow is a story about a husband, Channing Tatum, and wife, Rachel McAdams, who are in a car crash, and when the wife wakes up she forgets she is married. Throughout the whole movie the husband is trying to make her fall back in love with him. We won't ruin the ending for you, but the first words out of Katie's mouth when it was over were, "I NEED CLOSURE!"

Although we were slightly disappointed that this chick flick didn't live up to the high expectations we set for it, the Movie Tavern was fantastic. Being that it was Valentine's Day and all the stupid couples were out and about, we had to sit up in the front row. Even sitting that close we still had great seats and didn't feel as if our necks were going to fall off when the movie was over. The menu was actually fairly large with everything from burgers and pizza to wraps or salads. I ordered the Spicy Buffalo Chicken Wrap with sweet potato fries, which the waiter said was one of the most popular items on the menu. It was delicious! It had the right amount of spicy without making my eyes water, and the portion was very reasonable. Not too much, but enough that I was full when I was done. And of course since we had the option to drink while watching the movie I washed it down with a couple Blue Moon's. Katie had the Thai Chicken Flat bread and it was "fahhh-nominal," also washed down with some Blue Moon.

Do we recommend seeing The Vow? Yes, but wait until it comes out in Redbox. Do we recommend going to see a movie at the Movie Tavern? YES, because it has reasonably priced tickets, food, and drinks!
