Friday night lights
The play was utterly dreadful; the best thing that can be said for it that it was a 7:30 curtain and only an hour and ten minutes running time. (Obstreperous gentleman behind us, to his wife, as others clapped at the end: "Seventy minutes of bullshit!") And we struck out at Esca and the restaurant across the street, it was too early and too crowded, we did not have the patience for a twenty-minute wait; but ended up having a very good dinner anyway at Rachel's. I had the chef's salad, as I had already had small dinner #1 at home after installments one and two of massive ironman weekend training; but I tasted my dinner companion's meat loaf and mashed potatoes, and they were fairly divinely good!
