Ben and I have a weekly "Pizza Night" with some of our friends, and it's one of the best rituals around. Even better (I think) are the impromptu dinners with friends that happen on occasion. One night the boys (Will, Phillip & Ben) made dinner for the girls (Cara, Tara & myself). It was a local, currently ripe food bazaar. AWESOME!
(roasted potatoes, roasted corn on the cob, squash mix, fried green tomatoes, fresh mozarella/basil/tomato salad, corn fritters, and a ripe lily)
There's a new sushi bar in town called "School". It has a sushi conveyor belt, great presentation & nice prices. It also has red bean tapioca gelatin.
