Big Night Out

We don't go out all that much. Well, we do, but I think about nights we go to the theatre as being "work," since we don't make an evening of it, with dinner and that sort of thing, and I have to come home and write a review. Just "going out for fun" is something we rarely do.

Ahhh...but how can you resist Wallace and Gromit and the Curse of the Were-Rabbit? We have been waiting for the movie to open, and it did this week. Walt suggested we go to see it Monday night. We went early, expecting there to be crowds, and were surprised to discover only a handful of people in the theatre (perhaps because it was a holiday, even tho Columbus Day isn't one of your major holidays).

Anyway, we really enjoyed the movie and then went looking for somewhere to eat afterwards, discovering that a lot of the restaurants in the neighborhood were closed. But we did find a Chinese place that was open, so we had dinner at the Silver Dragon.

A nice night--and best of all -- I didn't have to come home and write a review, and we had enough leftovers that I didn't have to cook dinner the next night.
