Date Night in North Texas

My husband and I have a standing "date night" once a week.  Date night is, of course, complicated by the fact that "dinner and a movie" is limited greatly by where I CAN eat dinner.  

Lately, our favorite spot is Top Golf, in Allen.  This huge complex has dozens of "bays" overlooking a golf green with numerous "target" holes.  A machine dispenses golf balls to you, each with a little microchip that relates the position of your ball back to a computer which automatically keeps score for you.  It's a fun, addictive game with no walking or sand traps.  You just whack balls onto the green and watch where they land.  

Some of you, who know me well, may now be wondering if I've been taken over by space aliens.  It is well established that Sandy does not like sports of any kind; BUT, Sandy does like outdoor patios, good food, and funky drinks.  Basically, I get to sit outside and drink, and occasionally take out my frustrations on a poor defenseless ball.  

The gluten free items on the menu are clearly marked with a "g" and the food is very good, although the selection of gluten free items is not extensive.  I typically get chips with guacamole and a tomato and fresh mozzarella salad.  I haven't tried them yet, but the Spinach Artichoke Dip and the chili are also gluten free.  The drink menu includes a killer Tropical Sangria with white wine and fresh pineapple juice.  

It's a great place for a date night.
