Friday, we traveled to Greensboro for an overnight (just 40 mins from home) to see a concert that night w/ Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, plus Edie Brickell
- stayed at one of our favorite hotels in the Triad, i.e. O'Henry Hotel
which has the Green Valley Grill
attached, our early dinner choice.
Dinner entrees come w/ a house salad w/ seasonal greens (always crisp & and a nice mix). Susan had the Moroccan Scallop
dish over risotto & some veggies; I had the 'catch of the day', a wonderfully grilled thick piece of Swordfish
over a smoky flavored polenta & nicely steamed crunchy broccoli - along w/ a couple glasses of a 'house' Chablis (i.e. the real thing from France) which was surprisingly tasty.
We shared a dessert called the Nutty Irishman
- a cake w/ alternating layers of chocolate cake & frozen Irish Bailey's Cream mousse, drizzled w/ dark chocolate sauce and covered w/ a crunchy mixture of nuts & toffee - the ONLY dessert that I insist on sharing equally w/ my wife -
