Ed takes our picture tonight at Moose Henri's.
Blues band Fat Chance performs at Moose Henri's.
It was fun! Many of my fellow teachers and school administrators showed up to watch the band. Steve Knudsen (second from left) was one of Dylan's teachers last semester. Everett Peterson (third from left) teaches at the elementary, and his wife Judy is a high school English teacher just down the hall from my classroom. I was a little worried about the atmosphere, but Moose Henri's felt more like a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant than a bar, and since the state legislature banned cigarettes in all public buildings, it wasn't even smoky.
Originally we thought we might have dinner there, too, but in the end we left and had dinner at the China Wok Buffet instead. That's one of the first places the kids and I took Ed when we met him, so it has good memories attached to it.
First date night of 2011: accomplished! So, where shall we go next week?
