The Return of Jenn and Moe

Jenn and Maureen couldn't leave their meeting early on Thursday, so they ended up changing their flights and staying an extra night in Ottawa. Girls night out take 2!

Jenn didn't pack any extra clothes so first we went downtown to Rideau Centre to find her a new shirt. Then for dinner we tried the Black Tomato in the Byward Market. It was packed, but we had good timing and got the remaining open table. The food wasn't as awesome as I thought it would be, but the wine and the company were excellent. We couldn't decide on one dessert, so we shared a piece of peanut butter pie and a piece of chocolate pecan pie. Is it wrong that I always focus on what a restaurant offers for dessert over the main course?

Then it was back to the self-proclaimed "unsurpassed luxury" of the Southway Inn again. Jenn had managed to talk the hotel staff into upgrading Moe into a suite, which seemed to have an Arabian Nights/circus tent, red and yellow-striped theme. Enchanting. I lasted till about 12:30 and we did another round of good-byes.

I've got my fingers crossed for yet another snowfall, causing a shut-down of the Ottawa airport and girls night take 3!
