Parker Posey and a Free Dinner!
This was my exclamation as we left dinner last night.
After a thoroughly exhausting week of performing, Jon and I decided to go "home" for dinner. "It's our anniversary today -- 8 years!," we were told as we entered the restaurant. How perfect.
In honor of the event, we ordered ribollita, the first thing we ever tasted at Delfina (yep, you guessed it) eight years ago.
Craig and Annie were there dining with their most perfect child, Lucy (I've thought about stealing her, but then I wouldn't get to eat there anymore).
They gave free glasses of prosecco to everyone who came in. Hooray! We ate and ate and ate some more (soup, salad, a pasta, an entree and two desserts on top of the ribollita to be exact) and drank some, too.
When Annie left, she thanked *us* for being such loyal customers and for "helping to keep them in business." Um, Annie, hon, we hate to tell you but even without us you guys would still be beating people away with a stick. Still, it reminds just why we gravitate there whenever an important moment occurs in our lives. I love them so fucking much. As I told Annie, we will be there as long as they are.
Top that off with Parker Fucking Posey sitting in the corner. Parker Posey!!! There are few actors I love more than that bitch.
The cherry? Dinner was free. As in no cost. As in why-didn't-I-order-more-wine? Why, you ask? Because we've been loyal for eight years. I, mean, for fuck's sake -- can you believe that generosity???
They better be careful over there or I just might move in.
