Happy Anniversary to Us!

My boyfriend Paul and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary Saturday night, although the actual anniversary date is today (Sunday). We took a road trip to Nashville for the occasion because we'd been dying to try the food at Mad Donna's – a hip, casual joint with vegan options for me and meat options for Paul (yea, he's into all that).

Here we are in Mad Donna's upstairs lounge, in front of a Betty Page painting:

Mad Donna's totally lived up to our expectations! The atmosphere is totally laidback with photos of gay icons — Donna Summer, Judy Garland, etc. — lining the walls. The prices were affordable, and they had a $3 long island iced tea special going on. And they have drag queen bingo!!!

As for food, I tried the To Wong Fu:

Crisp cubes of fried tofu are smothered in a coconut panang curry sauce with spinach, red and green bell peppers, red onions, steamed green beans, and a mound of jasmine rice. The tofu was perfectly cooked — chewy and crispy — and the sauce was delectable.

I'll spare ya'll photos of Paul's Flat Iron Steak, but he said his dish was also delicious. I'm not sure how dead cow can be delicious, but I'll take his word for it. We'll certainly be eating at Mad Donna's again in the very near future.
