So – the dinner last night was QUITE an experience. We were told that even though it was expensive and took reservations – it was still relatively casual, so we didnt get TOO dressed up. I did panic a bit when I saw the “Salt and Pepper Shakers”, because, I mean really – what is THAT all about? Does fancy mean use your fingers? No. Then explain those damn things to me.
Then, of course, I had to go and order WINE with my meal. I had to ask the waiter what he recommended and he went ON and ON and ON and it took every ounce of restraint I had NOT to giggle since I had no idea what he was talking about. He ended up bringing me a class of wine that was only filled halfway! I guess that’s what fancy people do. Pay EIGHT DOLLARS for a half glass of wine. And you know what I find interesting? I usually drink wine out of a box, right? Not expensive. Not fancy. But I like it. Yet – I swear to god, that EIGHT DOLLAR glass last night? Left a cardboard aftertaste. EIGHT DOLLARS for a cardboard aftertaste.
Finally…we ate our food which we all loved. I had swordfish, LilZoot had shrimp, and MrZoot had a 35 dollar steak which was so delicious it was actually worth every penny. He loved it and and actually said he wants to make eating at that restaurant a tradition.
Um…yeah…I dont know about that.
MrZoot scored some great birthday swag! He got 4 new shirts (one pictured here, of course), some pajamas, some golf balls, some cash, and some DVDs. All in all? I think he had a pretty groovy birthday. Even if he IS still younger than me. Bastard.
