Prom | Mo's... A Place for Steaks

Prom! My first prom EVER! So if you read this post you know all about my prom deprivation. I never went. Wah Wah. I'm not really that bent out of shape about it, but when I heard that this month's MAM After Dark was Prom themed! LOOK out! 
We decided to take it really seriously. We wined and dined and everything. Sarah had acquired a gift card to Mo's...A Place for Steaks, so, why not? Normally I'm not a big fine dining person. See this and this. BUT I was excited to try it out. The staff definitely made it easy to love the experience. And I mean, it's steak.



Sarah, my lovely date and I arrived a bit early so we hunkered down in our seats and mowed down nibbled on some breads with BBQ butter (?!?) (it was delicious!)




Our friendly waiter, Jordan (??-sorry I can't remember) checked in on us and gave us some helpful tips on what to drink as we waited. Martinis. We had to. J brought over perfectly chilled glasses and away we went. 



Also, mirror selfies in the bathroom ^^^^



Rose and Chad arrived fashionably late. We had to get some posey group photos in there as it was their first time to the prom too! Complete with corsages and boutonnieres. 



When they settled in we took a gander at the menu we all couldn't help but get our hearts in a little flurry of excitement. For Chad, Sarah, and myself the choice was steak. Hands down. And Rose ordered the seared tuna. The sides are meant to be ordered family style so we decided on the white cheddar mashed potatoes and the pepper jack macaroni and cheese.
Both were insanely delicious. I could have eaten them all myself.
Just kidding...no really.



I don't eat red meat much, but when I do I like it very pink in the middle. Medium rare is perfect for me. Mo's delivered! It had the perfect char and pepper on the outside and that middle!
Honestly it's getting a little difficult for me to write this post without getting hungry.



To top it all off the waiter brought us over a slice of cheese cake to share! On the house! So nice of them, really. We were stuffed, but we made room...as you can see. 

The whole experience was really really nice. The food was delicious and the wait staff was very accommodating. Although I'm still a burger and beer kinda girl it changed my perspective of fine dining. AND it left us feeling all fancy-pants! The perfect way to kick off our prom night!
But, more about that on Friday. ;)

Now which do you prefer, fine or casual dining??

Prom


Sooooo I never went to my prom. Everyone was kinda all coupled up and I just didn't really feel like putting in the effort. I ended up working that night and made what I probably would have spent after paying for a dress, dinner, transportation, etc. And ya know what? I don't regret it! I have never really felt like I missed out on anything.
Tonight, however, I am going to The. Prom. Yup. Old school, big dresses, large hair, 80s Prom. Once a month the Milwaukee Art Museum puts on MAM After Dark. The theme tonight is Back to the Prom. I couldn't be more excited! We are doing all of the things. Wining and dining beforehand, corsages (ok not really corsages, but it will be a good time!) Expect a post or two next week.
I mean, I feel like this Prom will be better than what I could have had in high school. I'm out of my awkward stages (I think...) and there won't be any of that drawn out high school drama (probably.) It will just be great...now I just have to figure out what to wear. Ideas??

Speaking of outfits. I told you that I was going through the T-shirt-over-dress thing recently! I love this dress! The full skirt makes me feel super feminine and just pretty. I've been feeling a little meh lately so this outfit is perfect! Make's me feel like a lady. ;) The only thing is the it's strapless and it's just a little too chilly for that right now. So T-shirt tie it is.

Wedges - Aldo last winter (similar) | Dress - Anthropologie oldy | T-Shirt - Banana Republic | Sunnies - Target | Lip Stain - Revlon in Smitten 

So tell me, did you go to your prom?? More importantly: what did you WEAR?!
