Reviews: Red Robin and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
Welcome to reviews!
Restaurant Review: Red Robin
Rating: 3 1/2 stars
I have been to Red Robin 4 times now, most recently last week. I considered lots of areas before arriving on a score of 3.5 stars. In the above picture (sorry it's so dark, my camera was dying) you can see our meal. I ordered the Fish and Chips and my husband got a Bacon Cheeseburger. If you look closely you can see the salt on the fries and fish, you kind of scrape it off with your fingers before eating it, lol. The fish was really good, the fries were so-so and the burger was good. They have a huge menu with lots of cool options for your burger like pineapple and guacamole. The waiter was super friendly, the booths actually fit the carseat and they were fast. You can join the Red Robin club and get email coupons and a free gourmet burger on your birthday (that's why we went!) by clicking here.
Now for the downside to Red Robin - the price! I love strawberry lemonades, but their lemonades run around $4.50 each. Ouch! My husband got a sprite and it was $2.50. By the time you get 2 burgers (around $9 each) and drinks it could rival Olive Garden in price. There were lots of families and little kids there (getting their free balloons) and I was wondering how you could afford to take your 3 kids to Red Robin. So, if you have a coupon or your date is paying enjoy some Red Robin.
P.S. I do have to add that they have delicious honey mustard with poppy seeds in it. Ask for honey mustard to dip your fries in when you go, yum!
Movie Review: Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
Rating: 4 stars
Set in London in the 1930s this movie's greatest elements are the MUSIC and FASHION. The music was so fun and I loved the clothes, coats, hats, scarves and shoes. You root for Miss Pettigrew the entire film as she flies into a glamorous life after a little lie. You hope she gets a good meal, a new outfit, glossy hair and that HANDSOME designer. I think Amy Adams is fun to watch and this show was no exception.
I will say though, that I watched this movie by myself. Husband would not have enjoyed the fashion, music or flirty/childish Amy Adams. Her numerous affairs with men were funny, but I wouldn't recommend by little sister watches unless I'm armed with a remote and ready to skip a scene. Cute, clever and enjoyable.
