|Patrick and I at the Pier Bar|
The rain finally subsided late afternoon and everyone else strolled into work. We've had a T10 and Black Rain in the past year, what's next?
Thursday evening I had another successful (one terrine sold-ha) tasting at the Pier Bar. We had a nice little crowd, some tasty Cali wines, and of course foie gras and truffles!

Saturday we had a proper lay in as Sarah would say. 11:30! Then due to the rain (of course it's raining on Saturday), beach birthday plans diverted to bowling birthday plans. I was not looking forward to this as my last little bowling round got a bit tedious and I don't believe I ever even broke 60, but things fared differently this go round. We had a big group, cupcakes, beer tours, Champagne, and I even managed a few strikes here and there. 66, and get this, 94 my second round!! Paul had a 100 and 98 for the record.

Then we did what everyone should go on their birthday. We rolled over to Linguini Fini for a feast. Bottomless wine, seemingly bottomless food, things got silly around cake time when the birthday boy decided to start throwing things. In proper LF fashion, all was all right. No complaints about us. Just great food, wines, and service. Meat plate followed by homemade sausage, then caprese salad (to die for!), eggplant parm, super moist chicken, gooey banana chocolate cake and cookies. Well done!
|Happy Birthday, Sarah!|
No birthday is complete without a night out to LKF. So we went. Jello shots. Tallboys from 711. The typical LKF experience.
