Almost our anniversary

Tomorrow is our 6 year anniversary and in celebration we went out to dinner tonight since the place we wanted to go isn't open on Sundays. This year we chose the Red Tavern on the Esplanade based on some friends' recommendations and they weren't wrong - it was fabulous! We got there right when they opened at 5:00 pm and asked to sit out back where we had the whole place to ourselves, though they did warn us of mosquitoes and gave us our own complementary bottle of Off.
We started off our evening with some drinks and a plate of buffalo frog legs. They were lightly battered and fried frog legs with a mild buffalo sauce to dip them in plus a side of carrot salad. Very tasty.
For dinner I got the Thai vegetable curry and the boy got the New York steak which came with sweet potato mashers, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale onion rings, mushrooms, and a brussel sprout fonduta which was like a warm brussel sprout slaw that he loved.
I only got bit four times by mosquitoes, so overall a success. We each brought home leftovers so we'll be dining in style for lunch tomorrow.
After our tasty dinner the boy surprised me with an impromptu trip to the thrift store on Esplanade. Apparently after spending $90 on dinner he could only afford thrift store duds, but I persevered and scored myself a Gap skirt and a Banana Republic skirt even though what I really wanted were the mesh cargo pants and the picture frame with somebody else's family still in it. And that's how you celebrate 6 years!
