-Last year I wanted to take him to Pomodori's for his birthday dinner. I wanted to see a menu before we went, so the day before the dinner was to occur I called the restaurant. No answer. The day "of" the dinner I called Pomodori's all day long. No answer. [Hmm...maybe they open at 5:00?] 5:45 I call the restaurant. They answer! And they were closed that night for a special function. Boo!
-This year I suggested that we eat at Embers Steakhouse because he's wanted to go there since practically date one. I'm glad I did the reseach one this one because, as it turns out, Embers closed two to six months ago.
Instead Doug chose to eat at one of our favorite restaurants, White Lion Pub. To my knowledge, it's the only place in Tulsa where one can get English food (Patty's and Kilkenny's do not count--they're Irish). This time he opted to get the cheese and cracker appetizer. (He's been into cheeses lately.) What a brilliant idea that was! It led to our discovery of what may be the best cheese ever:
Wait, Derby? Hopefully there aren't pieces of hat or horse in the cheese.
And in case you're wondering what he got for his birthday, I've been slightly unlazy and have started uploading more photos on my Flickr account. And add note. And geotags. See his gifts here. The whole account is still a mess and you've seen 99% of the pictures as they are all from the blog right now. Eventually I'll get more up.
