Celebrating the Anniversary
The weekend was spent at the cabin, our favorite place and that was just a given to mark 35 years of wedded bliss. The plan was to come home and get a bit duded up and go out to eat someplace nice. I wanted to try out a restaurant we had never been to, Polo Grill at Utica Square. I took off the jeans (doesn't happen very often) and put on the "dress up" clothes and off we went. I pulled the Jeep into the parking to find it empty. What! I was not happy. So we then decided to try Palace Cafe on Cherry Street, closed. Crap! Then it was off to Brookside and Garlic Rose, one of my fav's. Closed again. What about The Brasserie next door. We saw lights and people so parked and walked around to find a note on the door, "Closed for a Private Party." Okay, this was not turning out right. It is Sunday evening, fairly early and nearly all the good restaurant (not chains) were closed. Finally, we found Ciao on Brookside, a nice Italian eatery. We had a very good meal, me filet and The Hubby sea bass. Finally, we got to clink glasses and have a nice time together.
