Last night Ben and I headed to Downtown Disney to meet up with my fam.
Unfortunately, that place was PACKED and there was a problem with getting seated that resulted in a longer wait than was quoted. We messed around in the store for a long time waiting and waiting and waiting.
Fortunately, the manager realized the error and sent two HUGE appetizer plates for us to share when we finally got a table! The service completely made up for the error Apparently we can be bought with mozzarella sticks – any takers?
Ben and I sat across from the birthday boy and his friend. It made for some less than stellar pictures, but fun conversation.Eleven year olds have a lot of opinions on black holes, aliens and airplanes! I learned a lot!
Michael and Heather joined in the fun My brother’s ‘stache isn’t this creeptastic in person. Swear.
Ben wanted in on the creeper pic too I guess…
I ordered the macadamia nut crusted tilapia with coconut shrimp. I’m not a big fan of shrimp so I shared those with Ben. But the tilapia was AMAZING.
I also jacked some of Ben’s fajitas. They were adequate, but we didn’t expect much considering the place.
When someone orders a Volcano cake the waiters bring it out screaming, “VOLCANOOOOOO!!!!” The entire time we were eating Matt stopped what he was doing hoping it was his volcano when it came out of the kitchen. Who am I kidding? So did I.
Finally his birthday volcano arrived! I ate it. Not all of it, but I put a BIG dent. Trust. Everyone else (besides me and Matt) was too full from their dinner to help us attack it. Party poopers. More for me.
