Oh, what a night!
Despite the horrid rain, and gridlock traffic, ten of us gathered in the name of The Mad One and had a grand time this evening.
I would highly recommend the flaming Chorico (spicy Portuguese sausage) as an appetizer. The calamari was also quite good. And I loved the Portuguese "dry soup" I ordered - an amazing array of shrimp, scallops, muscles, and clams with chunks of Portuguese bread. Just like my grandmother used to make. Yum, yum! I didn't hear anyone who was disappointed with their meal. Oh, and the portions are HUGE! I think we all have our lunches for tomorrow.
We decided to try and get in all-girl smooch, but it just didn't seem to work. All we really accomplished was to raise more than a few eyebrows and turn every head in the restaurant in our direction.
So, Katharine and I finally succumbed.
Hope you're happy, Maddy.
Hope you are green with envy Mimi.
Next gathering: Somewhere in Central New Jersey. My vote is for the Ethiopian Restaurant not from from Allie's apartment. It' AMAZING.
