And The Crowd Disperses

My sister and bro-in-law flew back to the North of Chicago home last Monday;  Richie's brother and my sister-in-law fly back to Long Island this Saturday.

Here's why I need to look into a short diet.  Meals taken out …

With my sister and bro-in-law:

Wednesday - drinks at the Crow's Nest, atop Old Tony's RB Pier
followed by dinner at Kincaid's, RB Pier

Thurs. - lunch at the Cheesecake Factory for the South Bay Writers annual Summer Solstice celebration.  After that we took them over to our local pub (Suzy's on Aviation and Prospect)  for a gentle libation
Then dinner at Bluewater Grill and we all had lobster bisque (best in the South Bay) before wearily waddling back to the car and hotel and home.

.Richie's brother and sister-in-law had flown in the previous Saturday and, following a well-established family tradition, their daughter picked them up at LAX and met us at Tin Roof Bistro, long a favorite.

Friday we went to them out in Studio City for dinner at another favorite - Maria's Italian Kitchen.
We were eight at table as the sons joined us.  Maria's has the best Spaghetti Carbonara this writer has encountered.

The Family (Both) Dinner
All of the above met for dinner at Las Brisas, 1969 Artesia RB which was a great success.  My side had only met the Other Side once and that was at our wedding 36 years ago on 7/2/2019.

Yesterday we took them (Richie's brother and sis-in-law) to Kincaid's for lunch.  I was delighted to see that bacon-wrapped prawns are on the lunch menu, too, and practically yelled out my order them as the waiter approached the table.

See what I mean about a small diet?
