And, once again, it’s Eloise Renee’s birthday! At 9, Eloise has entered the birthday dinner stage. So I asked her out on a dinner date. She would get to pick any restaurant and any entre and desert. She said yes, and picked the Delta King on the Sacramento River.
We had reservations at 6:30, which gave us time to dine leisurely before the dinner crowd got there. Eloise thought about the shrimp, but finally settled on the pasta with garlic butter. I had a New York steak. We sat at a window table looking over the river. Right after our main dinner, directly across the river, the River Cat Stadium gave us a 15 minute firework display! After our desert of sherbet with birthday candle, we walked Old Town Sacramento. We would have stayed out longer, but breaking in heels and earrings makes for a big evening at 9.
