The TVs above the bar were all showing the Bruins game.
What looked to be a family of six included two boys in baseball uniforms, so it’s pretty obvious where they were coming from.
Between people eating outside to enjoy the warm weather — even if the view was of the Market Basket grocery store parking lot — and the fact it was 5:30 (we had a basketball game we wanted to watch at 7), there weren’t all that many people inside.
Suzi and I each ordered our favorite dish — cheese ravioli for her, chicken parm for me, although I almost always get chicken parm when we go Italian.
The restaurant isn’t all that far from our house, and we’ve gotten dinner there several times, but this was different.
We were actually eating at the restaurant.
For the past two-years plus, for the obvious reason, we had only ever gotten take-out. And because Suzi usually picked up our orders, not only had we never eaten there, I had never set foot in the place.
Sure, we could have gotten takeout again, but it’s more fun to go out.
By the way, speaking of going out to restaurants, this one hit way too close.
