"My most memorable date night was a cold but dry winter night. My girlfriend (now wife!) reunited after a long breakup. Living close to downtown Pleasant Hill, we walked, hand in hand, possible to keep our hands from freezing. I remember all the white lights and enjoying the silence of the night. We enjoyed a romantic dinner at the now sadly closed Left Bank. It was a wonderful evening as it represents the new beginning of our romance."
