We arrived early, having remembered from last year that the tavern is not *quite* where the GPS thinks it is - but we didn't miss it and have to backtrack this time! We mingled with the other early-comers, all gathering in the room off of our reserved dining room with the lovely fireplace and portrait shown above. Our waiter brought us drinks, and we conversed in a lively and diverting manner.
Brian opted to wear modern formal wear for the occasion, as he finds it more comfortable than his tailcoat and trousers. A couple of the other gentlemen did, as well.
|Such handsome gentlemen!|
|Such lovely ladies!|
At this point in the evening, I believe the conversation had turned to Star Wars:
After half an hour or so of mingling, we made our way to the dining room:
I was diligent about documenting everything this time!
The salad course:
More spirited conversation ensued as we finished our salads.
The main course:
|I had the steak medallions, because steak.|
|Brian had the chicken, and we shared half portions with each other. Both entrees were delicious!|
|This brownie was super rich! I wasn't able to finish mine and had to box it up - after I ate all the ice cream!|
|"Can you believe she didn't finish her brownie?"|
|"I'll finish it for her!"|
|Me trying to light a fire, forgetting that "it doesn't do wood!"|
