120 Days of LC Menus

Our Weekend Date Event

We're getting ready to go to a dance performance. First, we'll grab a bite at a new restaurant (more on that later). Then, the dancing. Details to come.

Update: We attended a 50th anniversary production by the Alvin Ailey dance company. Wow! What incredible dancers!

This is the first professional dance event I've been to. I was truly amazed and in awe of the power and talent of these dedicated performers. It's an experience I won't soon forget.

Today was also an excellent opportunity to enjoy a romantic date with my beautiful wife. We first went to Kendall's Brasserie - a French bistro style restaurant. The food was wonderful (and LC friendly). Then we had a chance to stroll around a little while before the show.

A lovely Sunday indeed. I'm a very lucky fellow! :-)

Sounds like a wonderful time and some really good eats...yuuummm.

Harry said...

Howdy, Paul!

Nice to hear from you! :-)

To be honest, I'm not much of a dancer. We often joke about it - my wife and I.

But I'm sure that I could be a better dancer now then before (when I was heavier). Also, my wife's toes are in less danger!

If you see this reply ... I'd really love to know how you've been doing. I hope things are going well.

Thanks for dropping by. It was good to hear from you. :-)

Harry said...

Both were true, Janice!

The food was great but it couldn't compare to the company! :-)

Vadim said...

Harry, how is that green powder is in shakes? Now that you lost 30 pounds or so what is your biggest difference?

Harry said...

Good day, Vadim.

The chocolate greens taste surprisingly good. They're by far the tastiest product of it's type I've ever tasted. I actually enjoy drinking them!

I haven't posted my weight yet today (will do later tonight) but in total I've actually lost 60+ pounds. 30 some pounds dropped off since I started menu blogging.

The biggest difference I've noticed (aside from the physical changes) is that I feel somewhat less ashamed of my appearance.

We all have our own set of personal weaknesses. But being overweight is one problem we simply can't hide. The fact that everyone (who saw me) could identify this as an issue in my life made me feel pretty lousy. Now that's no longer the case.

I hope you're doing well. I look forward to seeing you back on the LC menu circuit. :-)
