Last weekend at the MS Walk, my mom bought a raffle ticket and gave it to me.  Thanks to her, my husband and I won a Sunday brunch for 2 at a restaraunt called Rapscallion's.  We had never been there before but everyone around us expressed what a great place it is.  Thank you Mommy!  Since today happened to be Sunday, we decided to steal some time together, just the 2 of us.   

The skies were blue with a good mix of sunshine and clouds and  the temp was about 70 degrees.  That's perfect weather in our book so we rode our motorcyle's to the restaraunt.  

It's a hidden hot spot located near downtown Reno.  What a dainty little restaraunt, with very neat landscaping.  There were table's and chair's outside and even a few tree's for shade. Quite a few people were dining out on the patio enjoying the sunshine.  The inside had a very charming ambiance but since the weather was so nice, we decided to soak up some vitamin D outside.  There was only 1 small table available with 1 chair so the staff found another chair for us. The service was exceptional, as was the food.   They started us off with warm blueberry muffins and fresh fruit with some kind of pink, creamy sauce drizzled on it.  We were also served champagne. 

My husband ordered New York steak and eggs.  His steak was tender and medium well, just the way we like it.  I say "we" because we always share our food with each other.    
I had what was called "Joe's Special Scramble".  It consisted of scrambled eggs with sauteed mushrooms, spinach, onions and italian sausage.  A preferable and perfect combination for me.  Both our orders included home fries which had a wonderful flavor.  We could only take a few sips of our champagne so we ordered a glass of orange juice which came to us freshly squeezed.
That did it, we were both extremely pleased with Rapscallion's, all the way around.  We were sure to give our compliments to the waitress and the chef. 

It's days like this that we really cherish.  We have to schedule dates with each other more often.
