So what did you order? Did you try any of their ice creams?
*blush* I didn't end up ordering anything. I had every intention to, but when I saw the prices, I....eep.

But one of my friends actually bought us a pint of ice cream to share between us, and that ended up working out great. We got...I think it was the chocolate peanut butter kind. And I sampled one of their coffee flavors; also great.

I'd definitely like to go back sometime and try the crab melt in the (hopefully more financially stable) future. It was a pretty nice place!
I gotta admit the crab melt is quite pricy. Might I add that when a supervisor at work decided to treat us out to lunch over there, most of my colleagues ordered the crab melt, possibly the most expensive item on the menu.

Re: One Recommendation

My one recommendation would be to live like you were dying. Live each day to the fullest you can.

Re: One Recommendation

Feel what you feel and help/let others do the same. During times of trouble it's fashionable to admire people who 'keep a stiff upper lip' and 'stay strong'. Thing is, just as you may need a shoulder to cry on, the person near you may, too. As Spider Robinson wrote (paraphrasing), "Shared joy is increased and shared pain is decreased".

Probably some seafood dish with melted cheese on it.

Aye, pretty much. It's got Dungeness crab with your choice of cheese and toasted bread.

Re: One Recommendation

Sing, from time to time. It doesn't matter if you think you're the worst singer in the world - you can always find a private place to do it. For the few minutes while you're singing, you won't think about the other things going on in your life that are causing you pain.

And if you really can't bring yourself to do the singing yourself, listen to some music performed by someone else. Don't just have your iPod in while you're doing something else - really listen to what the lyrics are saying, and what the melody and harmonies are doing.
