Tonight we went out for a dessert date. We've both been working a lot so it was really nice to reconnect a little. We made dinner together at home, then we went out for dessert at this great bakery on Bell Blvd in Bayside called Martha's Country Bakery.
The bakery is really cute. It has a country feel inside with cozy wooden booths, nice decorations, and friendly servers. Whenever we go out we try to get a feel of what the crowd is like and if it seems safe to hold hands or show a little affection to each other. I don't know if many straight people realize all the shit that GLBT couples have to think about just going out on a date. Martha's is surrounded by bars and restaurants and you never know when there might be a drunken asshole or two around. Despite maybe a couple of looks, we ended up feeling totally comfortable. Our dessert date was really great! We ordered lattes and slices of cake.
