I’m far too busy watching college football to go into great detail about last night’s amazing NYE dinner with Brad Pitt. I also blame college football for my lack of desire to spend a long time working on the photos I snapped of everything we ate.
Sorry. But I think you’ll be okay.
The food was quite photogenic and didn’t need much help with my enhancing skills. And pictures are worth a thousand words. So…. the photos of our eight (EIGHT!!) course meal speak volumes on their own.
Oh yeah … worth mentioning … we had this amazing dinner at the new French restaurant in our tiny borough. In case you weren’t paying attention: THIS AMAZING PLACE IS DOWN THE STREET FROM OUR HOUSE! How do you say “This is Better Than College Football” in French!?!?!?

Merci Beaucoup 187 Rue Principale for a great dinner. And welcome to the neighborhood! And by “welcome to the neighborhood” what I mean is Praise The Stars Above that we finally have a fancy schmancy restaurant in town!
