The only downside to having a neighborhood as great as ours is that sometimes not everyone can be included. We had 20 people interested in going to dinner; we could only get 12 in, until the restaurant called and had some cancellations so we got our group to 16. We were set up outside and the weather could not have been more perfect (especially for mid-August!).
We feasted on bruschetta, salad, the most amazing bread, lasagna, chicken topped with spinach and cheese, mixed vegetables with fresh dill, and a cake that was so delicious that I ate it before I could take a picture.
Everything was delicious! Cafe del Mondo always takes great care of us. Aaron is a regular at lunchtime and they cater our annual Christmas party, which includes the amazing "meat tree."
After two and a half hours, with full bellies, we walked home (definitely needed that walk).

For Whitney's #backthatazzup Friday, I'm giving props to those friends who are family, who will never let us down and always have our backs. And I'm not only talking about the ones who were with us last night. Y'all know who you are!

That is awesome! I love that your neighborhood is close. We know our neighbors, but aren't really friends with any of them. What a great restaurant!ReplyDelete
