Saturday night, all right, all right….

Last night my husband and I braved the poor weather and bad streets and went to eat at Vonachan’s Old Place.  It was pretty nice. We had the calamari which was okay; the breading was pretty but the calamari tasted oddly sweet, and the dipping sauce lacked any bite at all.  It wasn’t bad, per se, just disappointing.   I had the horseradish encrusted sea bass with mashed potatoes and crispy leeks, and it was enjoyable.  My husband ordered an oddly bland pasta dish. We ended up splitting my dish and taking his home to our son, who seemed to enjoy it.  The non-picky taste buds of a hungry 13 year old boy, I guess.

 After dinner we rented a couple of movies and went to K’s merchandise.  It’s not hard to see why they are going out of business.  They carry so much crazy, poorly made crap. We walked through housewares and my hubby seriously wanted to buy our 12 year old daughter a new humidifier for Christmas.  Yes, just what any 12-year-old (in a day!) girl wants for X-mas, an appliance assuring more humidity. 

We did end up buying a new tv stand to replace our current monstrous entertainment center.  My husband was also going to get our son a center speaker for his stereo.  The sign had the brand name and the price (mid-30’s) on a stack of the speakers but rang up at over $50.  My husband went back to the stereo department to try and sort it out.  The young man that helped him said the sign was wrong; they called a manager, no luck, they insisted the higher price was correct.  Hmm…. but don’t you think if it was their mistake (which they admitted) that they would honor the price?  Plus, my husband had looked at this component before the store was going out of business and the regular price (before the now 30% off sale) was $50.  It’s pretty obvious price gouging and likely illegal…

Later in the evening we watched the movie “A History of Violence.”  It was pretty good, but way too violent for me.  (Lesson:  if you don’t like violent movies, don’t rent one with the word violent in the title.)
