I recently had a birthday - eek! And while I used to love celebrating my birthday, the older I get, the scarier it gets haha. But Ben made my birthday ultra special this year by taking me on the most incredibly romantic adventure: a desert dinner provided by our friends at Cloth & Flame. It was SO amazing, you guys!
To set the romantic mood, Ben had ordered us an UberX so we could snuggle in the back while our driver took care of everything else! It was so perfect just riding hand-in-hand while feeling extra spoiled. We had never really thought of using Uber for our special occasions, but it was just so convenient and reliable, allowing Ben and I to just really soak up each other's presence while safely enjoying our evening without hassle (and allowing Ben to drink and not have to worry about making me drive us home).
I am sure most of you all know what Uber is by now (unless you've been perhaps living on a deserted island... but I wouldn't be surprised if they showed up there too)! Uber is a ride request app that's available in over 500 cities across the globe. Yeah, they're everywhere! And what I love most is that it's not only incredibly convenient, but they are also super fast and reliable. (Ben takes an Uber to work all the time)!
Our Uber picked us up and took us to enjoy our Cloth & Flame desert dinner (which was cooked entirely out there in the desert in front of us)! And oh my gosh it was sooooo good! Like, absolutely everything! From the heirloom tomato carpaccio to the pan-roasted rainbow trout and caramelized trumpet mushrooms! I am still dreaming about it.
We had heard about Cloth & Flame through social media (thanks Instagram), and were dying to experience it first-hand. They definitely didn't disappoint. You can hire them for anything from private dinners and wilderness weddings and elopements, or simply join in on one of their upcoming dinner events where you can meet and dine with other unique and adventurous folk. And PS, they're not just in Phoenix! Keep an eye on their website to find a dinner near you! It's just an all-around cool concept, and one that will have you talking for the next year! I mean, how awesome is this?!
It really was the perfect birthday! I am pretty sure I will be talking about it for years to come! I couldn't have imagined anything more amazing and romantic.
