Erin & Patricia at Wildwood Kitchen & Bar – Mon. Sept. 12, 2016

For the last night of Patricia’s visit we went to the new Wildwood Kitchen and Bar restaurant in the nearby Pavilions Shopping Center. The temperature was about 78 degrees tonight which would have been perfect for eating in their beautiful huge outdoor patio, but the patio is now open only for drinks. There will be outside eating in a couple of weeks. Ceramicist Ruth Rippon’s 2 matronly ladies, the Lollies, adjoin the patio.

The restaurant is the newest venture for the Haines brothers who also own 33rd St Bistro and Riverside Club plus other Bistro 33s. We were definitely not the target demographic. The place was filled with young people and was very noisy. … difficult for 3 hard of hearing people and Erin’s words were coming out as word salad.

Erin had sweet corn agnolotti. I had fried green tomatoes. The tomatoes were hot and delicious, but they were garnished with cold crab and cold corn. I would have preferred the whole dish to be hot. Patricia had hummus and freshly made Naan bread, and Clark a hamburger and fries. Afterwards, we went to What’s the Scoop to bring home Gunther’s ice cream.

Today also was opening day at our new bridge club which has been under construction for over 10 months in the building next to our temporary quarters. There were a record 28 1/2 tables. As the welcomer said, it involved a lot of time, treasure, and talent. There was a very festive mood.

    How nice that Patricia has an extended stay with you. Sounds like you have some good eating places. Hope you enjoy the new digs for your bridge.
    Tonight I took Vern with me to a local Lutheran Church where there is a singing group for women. The leader is a voice teacher so gives good hints for using your voice. I could not continue in the chorale which has long practices and performances with several rehearsals and long days. Vern is considered a “fall risk” so I don’t leave him alone. This worked out great because he could sit in the vestibule and hear our singing and read his magazines and papers. The class is one hour and 15 minutes, a perfect time for me. Vern took the opportunity to walk in the vestibule with his walker so he got in some exercise.
