I’m finally winding down after a fairly busy weekend. Friday, Geof and I went out for restaurant week in the city. They extended it an extra week to draw more patrons. We went to a place called Downey’s. It’s your typical Irish bar and I never even knew they served food. We had a five-course meal for $35 each. I had stuffed portabella mushrooms, Irish potato soup, Downey’s salad, filet mignon and Irish whiskey cake. Everything was delicious and was a great value for the money we spent. We were so full when we left, so we walked around South Street for a little while.
Saturday, I taught skating and it was a very busy day. Saturday night, Geof and Donald went to the Sixers game and Colleen and I went out for pizza and a movie. We saw, “Taken” and it was a lot better than I expected. Good story, suspenseful and lots of action. We got there a little late and had to sit in the front row. I hate when that happens, but my eyes eventually adjusted.
Today, I slept in (so nice) and my friend Kelly came over. We decided that we both wanted to see, “He’s Just Not That Into You” so we did. I love going to the movies and have no problem seeing two in the same weekend. The movie does give some guys a bad name, but the book did the same so I wasn’t surprised. I liked the movie a lot and it did have some good messages. Some of the things were a little harsh, but I definitely give it two thumbs up!
