This was such a fun, casual date! We started at The Flying Pizza and grabbed a couple of slices of pizza, one regular pepperoni & two sicilian cheese–yummm! We then walked over to Al’s Delicious Popcorn, located in the same shopping center. This place was suggested to us by our friends Dominique & Ryan, and being our first time there, we had no idea what to expect. Wow. The aroma of sweet with the perfect combination of salty immediately hit our noses and we were greeted with bins & bins of unique, individually flavored popcorn. The lady who helped us showed us the menu with all the flavors, told us that Vanilla Butternut was a favorite & let us a sample a couple flavors. We took her suggestion & ended up with a small bag (which is really not that small:)) of Vanilla Butternut & one of Al’s Trash (which is all the amazing sweet flavors left over from different batches).
Armed with our popcorn, we headed over to Carriage Place Movies, a little bit further down Bethel Road. Tickets are $1 on Tuesdays ($2 Friday & Saturday night, $1.50 otherwise)! We had a little extra time, so we ate some popcorn in the car & decided against taking it into the theater being that we were too full (but it’s up to you!;)).
Total: 3 slices of pizza $6.89 + 2 small bags of delicious popcorn $9.75 + 2 movie tickets $2 = $18.64
*Quality & savory pizza
*Al’s Popcorn was the perfect dessert
*We saw the movie Red which was hilarious & fun
*We saw the movie Red…for only $1!
*All were within a quick drive or walk from each other
*This date is repeatable for anytime you want a cheap, casual date! And there are multiple other food choices in both the Bethel Centre Shopping Center & Carriage Place that are reasonably priced.
*Too many flavors of popcorn to choose from (this isn’t really a bad thing:) I’m trying Salt & Vinegar next!)
