Dating in Harrisburg

I have a date tonight.  I’m meeting up with the young lady I met at the New Year’s Eve bash I courageously went to.  Well, not young lady, I’ve been told; these days in the dating world you’re meant to say “the woman.”

I first considered taking her to Muncheese but then decided that was a bit “too cheesy” excuse the pun. After reading a few reviews, I finally decided on Squires Restaurant, which received a 5 star rating along with some great feedback.  It is very popular for business meetings (that’s how I know about it as a colleague of mine had been there from work) and is said to be very nicely laid out, with good service and excellent food.

As well, when I looked at the reviews, one of them specifically said that it was a good place to take someone special.  So I hesitated a little, because it is a first date and I didn’t want to go over-the-top and come across as creepy.  But then I decided to go for it.  I’m always hesitating and not taking the plunge and my therapist and I have discussed the fact that it is very important for me to exude more confidence when meeting new people. As well, when I learned about the fireplace at the restaurant, I figured if I was having problem showing warmth and getting the conversation going, maybe that would be a bit of a help.

So here’s hoping the date goes well and the food and atmosphere provide a good setting for it!

Munching on Muncheese


What a great name for a restaurant, especially if you’re a cheese lover like me – Muncheese!  New in town, I decided to take myself along there this afternoon as the kids left this morning, I am still on vacation from work, and I really didn’t welcome the idea of being alone the rest of the day.

Located on Second Street, Muncheese specializes in everything grilled-cheese.  You can have grilled cheese on all different types of bread (from pretzel rolls to white bread) and then choose your cheese (pepperjack, provolone and more). So it’s pretty cool; you start off by choosing your cheese, then your bread and then add finally some meats!  I took cheddar cheese on rye and added turkey bacon and boy was it good!


Next time – if I ever get a date – I may bring someone here and share the grilled cheese for two. That looks really delicious!
