I rode out to Crossroads to get a couple more things for Robert's birthday — a candy thermometer, and a few more candy molds.
I stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few goodies for tonight's festivities at Flex for Robert's birthday — some peanuts and a chocolate-chip birthday cookie, which took the woman — two seconds — to write "Happy Birthday, Robert" on, and with exquisite handwriting at that.
Robert arrived shortly after 5:00, and we were at Irregardless right at 5:30. We had a nice dinner — each having a salad, with Robert having Oysters on a Half Shell, too, and then he had some delicious snapper (Snapper? You snapper, you brought her! — Snapper? I hardly know her.), and I had the most delicious beef quesidillas I've ever had anywhere — including all Mexican restaurants.
We got a free bottle of Merlot with his birthday coupon that they send in the mail if you're on their mailing list.
We arrived at dancing at a little after 8:30, and the posters Van made were hung around the place, and looked great. It was a festive night, and I was glad to have been able to do a little something to make Robert's birthday special.
