Every year Matty and i like to go on a Christmas date, usually we go to a new restaurant that we haven't tried yet and to some kind of Christmas show. In the past two years we went to the Rep's A Christmas Carol and last year we saw David Archuleta's Christmas concert. This year i found discount tickets on Groupon to the Kansas City Symphony's Christmas festival concert and it was fabulous. They had the symphony of course, as well as an adult choir, a children's choir, and a handbell orchestra. One of our favorite pieces was carol of the bells with all the handbells, singing and symphony it was so beautiful. We tried a new restaurant that i kept hearing about in the last few months in different papers and blogs around town- R Bar. It's down in the west bottoms and the food was so delicious. I had an appetizer salad to start that had warm brie with a crust of creme brulee topping on it- YUM, and Matt had a house made bratwurst infused with cheese for his starter. The entree's were just as delicious and the desserts were super creative and yummy, we highly recommend it. We are currently in Nashville enjoying some down time with family. Merry Christmas everyone!
