Sometimes it all comes together for my wife and I and we get a few hours for an impromptu date night.  Last Friday was that night for us, but our first few attempts at a nice restaurant were met with failure.  Forage was booked.  Manoli’s just across the street was booked.  Finca was booked as was Pallet.  We were just about to go back to one of our...
