Yesterday, I spent the day w/[livejournal.com profile] lilacfairy, celebrating her birthday in the typical way: going out to eat, going to a bookstore, and seeing a movie.

I was introduced to a pleasant diner-ish spot, My Garden Cafe, not far from where [livejournal.com profile] lilacfairy lives. In the same shopping center there was Mr T's Donut Shop, so I had to try a selection even though we didn't see Mr. T anywhere. Maybe he was in back mixing the apple fritter dough.

From there, we went to Yesterday's Books, an excellent used bookstore. I definitely could've stayed there an hour longer. :)

We saw the movie version of "Into The Woods" which worked out for me because I had wanted to see it again. We were the only people in the theater for the late afternoon showing!

Despite striking out at two dinner venues, we had a yum time at the third choice, Galletto Ristaurante. They even had seared foie gras -- this made me particularly happy because, well, Modesto. It was very nicely prepared, as were our entrees (risotto for [livejournal.com profile] lilacfairy and house-made squid ink papardelle with Dungeness crab meat for me), the small pizza appetizer, the house-made gelato and cinnamon bread pudding, the antipasto plate, though interestingly presented with Italian cured meats and local cheeses, we received different descriptions of the ingredients when we questioned the servers. Still, I'd go back.

Got to see [livejournal.com profile] lilacfairy's place, which felt very spacious! Nice set-up. Even interacted with Rupert the cat as we chatted into the evening.

Lovely visit!

Food, Books, Movie, Trektone...HAPPY Birthday!

Loved Into the Woods. Joey and I were the only people in the theater, but had to sit all the way up front cause I couldn't manage the stairs. Once I got comfortably slouched in my chair and my hearing adjusted to the volume it was fine. Better than fine.

Always an education having a meal with Joey. Squid ink pasta tastes interesting! Joey ordered a glass of wine to compliment our food so I got to try something else new. And vanilla and coffee gelato! Yuummmm...

New book of Pre-Rafaelite art. Chocolate old-fashioned doughnut. Joey. Yeah VERY HAPPY birthday!!!
