Peter's Birthday Dinner
On Thursday it was Peter's birthday, so tonight he organized a dinner with his friends. Rosemaree was nice enough to give me a lift to Kalorama. We met up at Peter and Mark's place, and then headed over to the Snooty Fox restaurant in Olinda. We got a table next to the fire, which was nice although a bit warm. Tanya was running late, and Peter joked that she better have a good excuse like being stuck in a ditch. A half hour after we arrived Fran spotted Tanya through the window waving both arms at us. Fran waved back at her. When she didn't enter the restaurant after a few minutes, we wondered where she had gone. Turns out she managed to get her car stuck in a ditch at the entrance to the restaurant parking lot! Peter, feeling a bit guilty for his previous comments, went outside to help. It took a while to get her car out (I guess the locals are used to this happening), and we were nearly finished with our dinners by the time they came back inside the restaurant. The food was pretty good. I had the chicken breast stuffed with spinach and feta cheese and vegetables. For dessert I had the orange creme brulee. It was a long night as the service was very slow, but I'd probably go back there to eat again. We said our goodbyes in the parking lot, and carefully headed for home. Jen and Fran kindly gave me a ride back to my place.
