What I Love Wednesdays

I love having a favorite restaurant and sharing that experience with family and friends.

I've been frequenting this restaurant for about a year and a half. It's an Italian restaurant (non-chain). The waitstaff knows me...particularly Mo. Mo is one of the last truly classy waiters. He's a career waiter and so good at it. You get great service from Mo. He remembers me each time, remembers Peanut's name...asks about her when I don't come in with her. We're always greeted with hugs.

This restaurant has a very old time feel to it. Reminds me of restaurants I used to go to with my family as a child...back in the days when eating out was a treat and a rarity.It also has an old time feel because we were there at 5:45...early birds love this place...and you can tell most of them have been eating there for years.  I've had many a Thursday night after group dinner there, gone there on dates, birthdays, Mother's Day...and I plan on eating there for years also.

Took Peanut there last night. We got the royal treatment. Would have loved a glass of wine with that royal treatment, but lightweight drinker me can't even drive after half a glass...so pleasantly tipsy high will just have to wait for another time. We had a great dinner and even managed to get homework done in-between. We sat, relaxed...and didn't have a care in the world. You can add that feeling to the list of what I love as well.

We made our reservations for Mother's Day lunch. Nana will be in town, and it's Peanut's 7th birthday. Talk about a Mother's Day gift!

Cheers to have a favorite place to dine!
