My inspiration for the week? Date night with my husband last night.

After work we hurried over to one of our favorite restaurants, Zia Tequeria (http://ziataco.com/) on James Island.

A Zia Rita and chips with chili con queso made everything okay.

Zias is always busy and seating can be difficult to find at times–inside and out. It is especially busy just before the start of a movie at the Terrace theatre next door.

After dinner we stepped outside and were once again caught off guard by the amazing views this place has to offer: a palmetto moon even in a parking lot.

The Terrace Theatre (http://terracetheater.org/) has always been one of our favorite venues with art house and foreign films, classics and some current movies.

The movie we picked: Stories We Tell (http://movies.nytimes.com/movie/456815/Stories-We-Tell/overview). Yes we recommend it.

The atmosphere at the Terrace is grand–red carpeting and twinkle lights lead you into the bar area.

They have a great selection of wine and beer as well as snacks. My favorite is the caramel cake (featured in the movie The Help–http://www.postandcourier.com/article/20110810/PC1206/308109898).

We didn’t have any cake since we were so full from chips and queso. Next time…

Just a little vintage musical reminder about the snack bar…I always look forward to this. There is something so great about show corn and hot dogs dancing around!

Time to head home. It was a great night. Good food. Good movie. And the best company.
