Fancy Pants Dinner.

I headed over to the girls’ hotel before dinner while they got ready.  We decided that a cocktail was needed 🙂
They were staying at the Sir Francis Drake hotel so we just went right to the lobby bar!
The bartender took his drinks very seriously!
Lauren and Lauren were raving about a delicious margarita that they had had the night before.  Apparently it wasn’t quite what the bartender made but I thought it was pretty tasty!
Ladies! Gina, SarahLauren.
Boony Doon Vineyard wine.  They had delicious wine.  And there was a different kind throughout the night to be paired with each course.
Delicious polenta appetizer.
The tables were set up so beautifully!
We all said we felt like we were at a wedding 🙂 There wasn’t even a bride, but the I would have married the food so it was close enough.
Two of my favorite ladies! Debby and Monica!  They were such nice people and so fun to talk to.  They also gave me great advice and some inspiration!  Check out their blogs because they are amazing cooks/bakers!
It’s true, we all do ❤ Foodbuzz!
Then it was time to eat!
Eat, pour wine.
This was my favorite course! I culd have ate those scallops all day and night.
Lots of wine pours equals a little fun!
This was my first experience with lamb.  I actually really liked it!  I was nervous but I was joking that I can now cross something else off my bucket list.  I don’t think I’d ever order it at a restaurant but it was a good experience trying it.
Mmm dessert!
By the time I worked my way through all of this I was quite full.  It was such an amazing and tasty meal.  There was a scavenger  hunt afterward but we were all just too spent!
I have more to tell you…the farewell breakfast, Alcatraz and my day in Sonoma!  I’ll keep you posted 🙂

  1. It’s so fun to watch the young folks enjoying the night life. That was quite a gala dinner, wasn’t it? My dinner mate didn’t eat her scallops, and I was tempted to ask for them. BUT, I didn’t want to seem tacky. They were delicious. I call them the filet mignon of the sea. I’m so glad you tried lamb. I happen to love it, but I don’t make or order it often. It can be a bit pricey. Thanks for the shout, Allie! You are one of the loveliest young women I’ve had the pleasure to meet.

    1. It was an amazing gala! Unlike anything I’ve ever been a part of. Oh my gosh those scallops were amazing. I would have ate your dinner mates for sure 🙂 And I was proud of myself for trying the lamb. If you put it in front of me, I will try it!

  2. ahhhh I want to go back!!!!!

    Next time you order a margarita ask for “a margarita made with clear tequila, tiny splash triple sec, and fresh lime juice (or juice from ~4 lime wedges)”. If it’s too strong for you ask them for a splash of OJ. Yeeeee-UM!
