Mother's day dinner

May 12th, 2006 at 04:55 am

My parents went and got my grandma today to spend a few days at their house until Mother's Day. I had a free $25 coupon for a local expensive restaurant for buying the Entertainment book from My Points, so we went there for dinner.

Kind of weird experience. We went at 5 and were the only ones in the restaurant at first. There were only 3 total for the hour and a half we were there. The the owner comes out and tries to make us order wine, we don't drink. Then tries to sell us entrees and special salads etc. We makes us feel cheap because we don't want to spend money on these things. The meals start at $14. The food was good, but I prefer plain food to fancy food. I couldn't eat half of my meat and gave it to my dad to take home. The steak was undercooked and my stomach always gets upset unless the meat is well done, so I had a stomach ache all evening. But it did taste good and my meal was free, plus most of grandma's meal. But I don't think we'll be going back.

Went to my parents afterwards and spent the evening playing cards. Dad and I won 5 out of 8 games.

Has anyone gotten the Coca-Cola 5 2-liter bottle coupons yet. The game ended mid-March. I would think I would get them soon. I won 35 bottles.

Finished listening to the library book on tape The Enemy by Lee Child. Mystery. Very Good. If you like the John Sandford Lucas Davenport books or the John D. MacDonald Travis McGee books, the hero Jack Reacher is kind of a cross between the two.

    Nope, no coupons. Wonder if KarenSue has?
    I can't believe the guy at the restaurant was such a shmuck! I hope you still enjoyed yourself a little bit. Good thing most of it was free! I guess that is live and learn!
    Hope you have a great weekend!
