A bunch of us went out to eat Friday night at the “new” Olde Inn to celebrate Stevie’s (Dawn’s hubby) birthday. This is the restaurant we kept hoping would open (under new owners) before we left last May, but never did – until two weeks after we left for Mac Island. So Ted and I were excited to go celebrate Stevie’s birthday AND try out a new place to eat. There were six couples, and I think everyone ordered something different.
I always pity the poor server who gets this rowdy crowd when we descend on a restaurant, but the girl who waited on us (anyone below the age of 40 is now a “girl” to me) handled us pretty well. I really liked what I ordered – grilled amberjack – but I have to admit my favorite river restaurant is still Daphne’s.
Renovation Update: Charlie worked almost 10 hours today, and he still has about half a day to go to complete the den. I think his estimate of “through with everything in 2 weeks” was off because he really didn’t realize how many windows had to be scraped, and the ceiling was a “BEAR” (his quote) to finish. Here’s a few update photos, and I’ll post some more on Friday (when nearly everything should be done).
Hopefully, I’ll be back on Friday with lots of photos of the completed project . . . but just in case – I’ll be back on Friday with photos of the almost completed project! See you then!
