Solstice Celebration

Unlike our wedding 9 years ago, the day began with a thunderstorm. To mark the occasion, I had called our babysitter to watch the kids while we went out for a late supper at Grog's Pub & Grill.

I don't want to complain about the service on such a love-filled day, but there are certain idiosyncracies particular to that institution that we didn't know. Apparently, "pint of Guinness" sounds like "Heineken" and writing "*Jal. poppers" on the ordering note pad doesn't mean jalapeƱo poppers but broccoli & cheese ones. Also, "I'd like a glass of water too" needs to be repeated if you actually wish to receive a glass of water.

It was nice to get out and we were glad to "support" a local business (mind you, the food itself was well-priced and not undelicious and the selection of beverages was impressive). Although our plans for next year's anniversary have a decidedly more European flavour.
