When I got there, I heard the news that didn't surprise me but that I didn't want to hear: this was their last night. The economy kicked them in the ass pretty hard, and it didn't make sense to stay open any longer.
Damn. Damn damn damn damn damn. If I could fund them through the economic mess, I would. Dammit.
Todd pulled out all the stops, and it was a wonderful meal with great food, great company, and lots of wine. I haven't been this buzzed since BARGE, though I'm pretty sure I'm spelling most of my words correctly as I type this.
