Surprise! I had a birthday! Not what I mean. Rob threw me a surprised birthday party for the big 2-5.
We started out the night at A.O.C., a place I found on Savored and really wanted to try. Rob didn’t even know that I wanted to try it, so that was an awesome coincidence that he made a reservation there.
We sat outside on the patio, which was huge! It was such a nice fall evening. I hope I get a few more nights out on a patio before it gets too cold.
The calamari was served with tartar sauce. TARTAR SAUCE, PEOPLE! Have you ever seen that before? I haven’t! But it makes perfect sense! And now I am a convert. I always/only want to eat calamari with tartar sauce.
Rob got the “demi poulet,” which means “half chicken.” He insisted that he heard “poulet” was delicious. I told him I’m pretty sure “poulet” just means “chicken” but he was really adamant about how delicious poulet is. It was really good, but it was also just chicken.
After dinner, Rob and I went to a bar around the corner. He sneakily got me there and then I realized that all our friends were there! We got a big booth and then before I knew it, an ICE CREAM CAKE was being delivered! Imagine my surprise and delight.*
