Birthday Lunch With Pat and John
I chose German food (not sushi) for my birthday lunch on Saturday, and Lou invited our closest neighbors Pat and John to come with us to the Bavarian Brathaus of Cary (on Tryon Road). What a great restaurant! We had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, and the conversation was even better.
Pat and John gave me a lovely cutting board made by a Native American artist, Ken Smith. Pat took pictures, which came out really well even though it was a little dark in the restaurant.
Our waiter somehow knew that it was my birthday and brought over a large musical machine that required cranking -- but the machine emitted only a few forlorn moans no matter how much he cranked and fiddled with the settings. Our waiter's struggles and eventual defeat were probably more entertaining than the music would have been.
