Last night Shane and I tried one of our recent Groupon purchases for Eleni's Philoxenia & Estiatorio, which turned out to have the most delicious Greek food I have ever had outside of Greece! If you haven't read about my vacation to Greece last year, you can skim the long version here.
We tried the spanakopita (spinach pie in filo dough) as an appetizer. Shane got the rack of lamb which was seasoned perfectly, and I got the eggplant filled with zucchini, tomatoes, onions, squash and other veggies. We ended the night with the best Baklava I have had since the Greek Islands...which is really hard to find in good old Portland!

Date night in my relationship has quickly become "Groupon" night. If you haven't signed up for Groupon and you love a good deal...you are seriously missing out! I buy groupons for restaurants, spas, dessert places, events, movie tickets, magazine subscriptions, you name it! Basically you purchase a gift card to the business for a deeply discounted price. Sign up for Groupon here, you won't regret it!
