Girl's Night Out

Last night, after many conversations in passing with the ladies in my neighborhood, we finally got together for a Girl's Night Out. It started out with four of us - two happily married girls and two going through what sounds like bitter divorces - in a minivan (we're all moms...). We arrived at the restaurant and were ready to relax and have a good time.

The first waiter that greeted us at the table was a very flamboyant, super nice, big bald guy. We were ready to order our Ladies Night drink specials when he, very enthusiastically, recommended we try this fabulous zinfandel (red) bottle and then after the bottle we can order the house wine. For some reason we all thought that was a great idea at the time, but in hindsight, his MO was to have us buy a bottle and then we never saw him again (and we ended up spending more on our drinks than if we just stuck to our original intention of 2 for 1 house wine...). He was a good sales person. LOL

The restaurant theme was a mixture of Thai and Japanese both in design and food choices; dimly lit with a mixture of long high top tables and velvet booths. I don't really remember much of background music - just fellow patrons talking amongst themselves. The menu was very interesting - I had never heard of Asian crepes and was tempted to order them, but all that came to my mind was the 1,110 calorie salad I had for lunch. I had better eat a bit lighter for dinner. I ordered wonton soup and my special sushi roll - tuna, asparagus, and cream cheese wrapped in cucumber with ponzu sauce. The waiter immediately asked me if I was from Lithuania after I placed my order. I couldn't quite get the connection between the revamped KC roll and where I came from. Once I explained that I am from "here", he then told me that his wife is from Lithuania and she orders the same thing I do. Mystery solved. Oy.

Dinner was delicious. Glasses of wine were consumed. Friendships were made. Overall it was a great night. Next time we are going to go to the Greek place - can you say Ouzo? :)
