Yesterday our book club went to see Eat, Pray Love and then went for dinner. In keeping with the theme of the 'Eat in Italy' we tried to go to The Olive Garden (the closest thing to an Italian Restaurant in the area of the theatre) but there were no parking spots; needless to say that it was over an hour wait for a table for five. Instead we hopped over to Moxie's and each of us chose something close to a Meditteranean dish/drink. I had a Bellini and then had Caesar Salad and Calamari. I know traditionally that Calamari is a Greek dish, but didn't opt for a pizza since I had some the day before. We discussed the movie and agreed that it was good, even though it deviated from the book just a little, embellishing and adding here and there to make it a little more theatrical. Too bad it wasn't in smell-a-vision to add to the sensual intensity of the Margherita Pizza in Napoli or the fragrant blossoms of Bali. I could have done without the smell of the cows in India quite frankly, so guess I should be thankful that s-a-vision hasn't hit the screens yet.
Now, back to getting items finished in preparation for the Market. Hubby has relayed that they are still in need of more volunteers for the weekend...so if you're not too busy, can be in the Lockport area and have a couple of hours to spare this weekend, then by all means drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer your services. I know it's late, but every little bit helps.
