Gabe and I walked over to Chris and Holly's place and met up with Mike and Karen and Toni and took a cab from LBC to Stanton.
We got there early so while waiting in the bar area The guys had beers..
Us Gals had water and soda
Ally soon got there ..I love the purple bar.
It was now time to be seated and move to the appetizers and Sangria being served out in the garden. For Appetizers they had servers walking around with silver trays of Salmon Tar tare (I was too chicken to try) Tomato Carpaccio ( cold tomato soup..It was really good) and a St. Louis Toasted Ravioli (also very good)..Now the Sangria was beautiful!! It was so delish!
Holly wanted him to put his head under the lamp and read something as if he were at a hairdresser..that's the story of this pix
The first course was served with a chardonnay. It was a petite plate with a pinch of freshly cut Arugula from their own garden,Seared Tuna (just cooked on the outside edges raw inside) with a yogurt dressing and a little pita cracker for crunch ..It was good
Our next course was Osso Bucco. It was very rich and flavorful. Mike getting ready to conquer this battle
I caught Chris sticking his tongue out at Holly again..just like the last time
We had a lot of wine..by this time we just kept toasting to a bunch of different things..so I got to get a shot of one of the many toasts
For Dessert they gave us Poached pears stuffed with Marscapone cheese with chocolate sauce..It was pretty gross ..I don't think any of us ate it.
Well It was time to call the cab to take us back. We could not end the night though just like that. We went over to Mike and Karen's house and had a few bottles,sang some Beatles and had lots of convo. It was a nice time. When It was time to go home ( 2:40am) Gabe had to throw Toni over his shoulder though and carry to her front door.
