I went out with some girlfriends over the weekend I have not seen in such a long time. We were fortunate enough to get gorgeous weather. We all met in Red Bank at the restaurant Red. We were lucky to get our own private section for most of the dinner. We felt so comfortable that we later realized we were sitting at the table for two and a half hours! The food was excellent. Everyone was satisfied. I had the filet mignon and it was very tasty.
After dinner we hit up The Downtown across the street for after dinner drinks and music. We were happy to find out there was a band playing upstairs. The band was called Daddy Pop and they were great. They were kind of like a wedding band. They had all of us dancing. It was such a great night everyone was thanking me for organizing it. Hopefully we can all get together soon. I can not wait till it stays warmer to have some BBQ's.
I heard on the news today that on the show Britian's Got Talent, where aparently Simon Cowell is also a judge, a 47 women got her singing debut. When Susan Doyle got on stage people were weary of her talent and of course Simon had to try to bring her down. She never quavered and appeared confident of her singing ability. She sang I Dream a Dream from the show Les Miserables. Everyone started cheering. She sounded amazing. She could definitely get a broadway gig if she really tried. She seemed like a real character too. You can watch Susan Doyle's perfomance on youtube.
I mentioned before that I have been to Trinity in Keyport for drinks and dancing but did not dine there. My husband took me there to eat this past weekend and the food was pretty good. I had a dish that was similar to chicken franciese. It was ok, the portions were big but I always enjoy leftovers anyway :) My husband got a spicy seafood dish. It was really good. The service was really good as well. The only complaint was the appetizers. We ordered empanadas and for the price you think you would get a decent portion but we only got two! Good thing it was only us! We didn't stay for the music this time but they usually have some great jazz and swing bands that come through. I think I rather go there for the entertainment than the food. I am picky eater ;)
