Well, problems solved. Spencer promised that if he got this job offer he wanted, we'd go. He got the offer, so we went. It was a very fun, enjoyable evening. We even decided that for dessert we'd go to the cheapest place we could find; just so we'd partake of both ends of the food quality spectrum. So, after our jaunt around Barnes & Noble, we got milkshakes from the drive-through at In-N-Out.
This is what I ate at the restaurant:
:: prosciutto stuffed chicken with a creamy swiss cheese sauce + rice and mixed vegetables ::
it was really fun to get all dressed up and act like adults for a night
