DINNER 132: Friday, May 12, 2006
Before attending this evening’s performance of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at Falcon Theater, I met Anne & Larry at Detroit Joe’s for dinner. You may remember Anne & Larry as the couple with whom we attended WICKED on March 9 of this year.
We met at Detroit Joe’s not only because of their proximity to the theater, but because of their good food. I arrived early since I went to the restaurant directly from work, and had a nice glass of Merlot and conversation with Marla, the owner. After Anne & Larry arrived, we settled into the cozy booth and enjoyed a fine, overly-filling meal of Portobello Ravioli appetizer and a mussell appetizer; salads (hot slaw and green); entrees including “Neptune’s Delight”, marinated tuna, and a shrimp & scallop scampi dish. Everything was very good, and we made it to the theater in plenty of time to see the excellent production of LITTLE SHOP.
After the show, most of the cast (along with Brian & Milan who came to see the show tonight) went over to Lightfoot’s for fried bologna sandwiches, cold beer, and conversation.
