Big Fish in a Small Ocean

This past weekend I finally got to try Splash Seafood Restaurant. Splash is located in the Homestead Building at the corner of 3rd and Locust in Downtown Des Moines. I went there hoping for some good seafood with more of an upscale flavor. I found exactly that! Aquariums fill the three different floors of the restaurant. Giant underwater mural art can be found on the walls that adds a cozy and vibrant feel. Reggae music plays in the background which even further adds to the chill atmosphere. So definitely the atmosphere was great! I found it a great place for a date.
As for the food…………One word……………….WONDERFUL! The Chilean Sea bass was flavorful and cooked perfectly. The Lobster was equally as good. My Calamari and Shrimp appetizer was the best I have had in a long time. The real surprise for me was the dessert. I split a Cherry Sorbet with my date and it was perfect. I don’t even like cherries but this mouth watering treat was the perfect end to a great meal.
Sure, the meal was a little bit pricey. Definitely a special occasion place (unless you are rich). If you are trying to impress or just have a good date night, check out Splash. You won’t regret it.

More good news……. I am now engaged. Time to settle down in life. :)

Up in the Clouds

I recently traveled to Columbus, Ohio. On my flight there it caught my attention that there were a lot of people around me that prayed while on the airplane. It was snowing on my return flight and we ran into some turbulence. The plane was starting to feel more like a roller coaster ride (a shaky one like the Tornado). It is amazing how people all of a sudden find God when faced with danger in their life. On an ordinary day they would not even think about God in their life. But when a scary situation arrives……BAM!! They are asking God for help. Hmmmmm….

On a related note………… I heard an interesting statement the other day, which I totally agree with. It was dealing with being a Christian and being an Atheist. Basically it said, a Christian really has nothing to lose by believing in God. If there is no God then the Christian is just crazy. On the other hand, an Atheist has much more to lose. If there is no God, then they were right. If they are wrong, and everything in the Bible is true, than they have much more to worry about.
