The first night was very very nice. After we got settled into our hotel rooms, Lydia and I met Cabby and Steph downstairs for dinner. The hotel has a very nice restaurant on site, so we decided to stay close to home and eat there. It was a nice continental restaurant, and we all had some variations of steak or roast beef, and we shared a nice bottle of red wine.Â I know Cabby usually prefers to drink beer, so I appreciate his little sacrifice for my sake by drinking wine.
It was a nice dinner with good company. Lydia fit right in and Cabby was as charming as I could have hoped. We all made it an early evening though. We have a lot of work to do this week, with some sightseeing and some shopping to squeeze in, too.
