Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
a tale of three good friends ...
Yeah, after that, it just gets too hard to rhyme.
Suffice to say, last night the Thursday Night Dinner Group was born. Amber, Patrick and I met at The Melting Pot in Buffalo Grove. They do not, in fact, serve buffalo.
It was Ladies' Night - $6 martinis, and a great deal on cheesy goodness, salad and chocolatey nirvana. We added an entree (French Quarter for me and Amber - chicken, shrimp, steak and sausage - and veggies for Patrick ... hold the peppers.) None of us could believe it when, as we enjoyed our last bites of fruit smothered in hot melted chocolate, the clock displayed 9:30 p.m.
We had been there for three full hours.
I guess that sort of thing happens when you have good friends with whom you can visit and linger over good food and even better company. I can't wait for our next dinner.
