RickQ and I just moved to the M’boro area and aside from buying a house, painting it, moving, and starting a new job, we don’t have near enough to do, so I thought I would see about organizing a dopefest. Now, I have to warn you that the dopefests I tried to organize in Michigan were occasional flops because we couldn’t find a date, but I have faith in my fellow Middle Tennesseans. Or I am full of crap. You pick.
Anyway, I know there are some of you out there. Bosda, St. Germain, Tuckerfan, c’mon, I know someone must do vanity searches. Don’t make me have a dopefest with just me, my husband, and my sister (cubmistress). I promise I won’t hit up anyone to help us move.
Ok, here is the part where I explain about my husband’s food preferences. He doesn’t eat cheese or tomatoes. Everyone eats pizza, right? Not my husband. So if they have a steak or chops, it will work, but otherwise, do you have any non-Italian, non-Mexican suggestions? Neither works well with his preferences.
Milano’s in M’boro is Italian, but not your basic pasta and red sauce Italian. My favorite is their chicken breast with artichoke hearts in a lemon wine sauce. They have a lot of great food. I’m not one who usually commits to social gatherings, but if you set something up I’ll try to make it. And I’ll help you move if you help me pound in fenceposts.
Yeah, and if you want me to be there, it certainly can’t be on a Friday or early Saturday. We’re backed up at work, and I’m having to put in all kinds of OT on the weekends, and I’m pretty sure you want me to bathe before I show up. Unless you like the smell of burnt flesh, rubber, hair, dried sweat, and motor oil.
It sounds like we have place–Milano’s. If they are as good as they sound, my picky husband can find something he will like.
Now day and date: Sounds like Tuckerfan is saying he can only make it later on Saturday unless we want him stinky. I prefer less stinky myself, so let’s look at that option. How late is late? Could we meet at, say, 7 PM, on Saturday, March 4?
