1950s Date at Cheeburger Cheeburger

In our new resolution to do something special every week, Lucas and I decided to go on a 50’s-themed date to Cheeburger Cheeburger. If you don’t have one near you, it’s a kitschy restaurant chain themed like a 50’s diner with Elvis, Marilyn and James Dean cutouts on the walls. The part of me that grew up listening to 60’s music loves it – and the Trivia Pursuit cards they leave at every table. Also, the hipster inside of me cannot help but love the mason glasses in which they serve water. I’m wearing the dress I originally bought for our Mad Men themed formals last year. It’s hard to see in the photo, but it has the most beautiful yellow roses and full skirt.

We did the full diner treatment – Lucas got a burger with parmesan cheese, italian peppers, and marinara sauce and I got my usual, a burger with provolone cheese, onion rings, guacamole, and barbecue sauce. We split an order of fries and onion rings and we each got milkshakes – birthday cake for Lucas and Irish cream peanut butter cup for me.
