It is not often that my husband and oldest daughter go out together. She has her volleyball and he has his work schedule. When I go out my husband will make dinner and set up the Looney Tunes – Golden Collection, Volume Three or one of the other Looney Tunes DVDs. The teen, her preteen sister, and kid brother have a great time with dad.

My husband rarely gets to take one of the children out anywhere special — I’m not counting when my husband takes one of the kids to practice or to a school event. No, I’m talking about a special “Dad and Daughter or Son outing.”

This weekend my preteen had a friend over and the kid had a birthday party, which meant that the teen and Dad were at a loose end. I suggested that both go to M&S_Grill since I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket. I had been given the gift card as part of the Reel-to-Reel promotion that McCormick & Schmick’s restaurant is hosting.

McCormick_&_Schmick’s is offering guests the chance to purchase $5 movie tickets — one $5 movie ticket for every dinner entree purchased. In this economy, dinner and a movie can be an expensive proposition. McCormick & Schmick’s wants to make it a little easier for people to go out to dinner and a movie.

My teen and her dad tried out M&S Grill since they were going out at lunchtime. The M&S Grill was located at the Baltimore Inner Harbor — they did some people watching while they ate.

The food was “delish” per the teen – she went to town on a huge bowl of crab soup and part of the Pot Roast Nachos — she has a small appetite and an adult entree is still too much for her. My husband said that he and the teen couldn’t finish the plate of Pot Roast Nachos, but that it was so good! He had the crab cake sliders, which he absolutely loved.

The lunch out was a success — good food plus Dad and Daughter time!
