Prix fixe is the new awesome

Once upon a time, a long time ago, Rebecca's boss asked her to watch his two cats Slick & Rose while he and his family went on vacation. Look how cute they look in their kitty kimonos!


Rebecca did such a great job at cat-sitting that her boss gave her a $100 gift certificate to Little Nepal (a fun restaurant in Bernal Heights that no one has ever been to) that she decided to use last night on all of her friends. So Jeff, Cameron, Paul, Steve, Rebecca and I took the J-Church train over to Bernal Heights. A neighborhood we never go to! Jeff is taking his boards this weekend to become a real dentist and Paul was his patient for the big tests! While we waited for the train Paul showed us his new filling.


One thing we didn't realize was how many sudden stops the J-Church train makes. It makes so many more sudden stops than the N-Judah which is the train we're all use to. At one point I almost fell on the floor. Thank heavens Steve was standing where he was standing. Here's what happened:
"Look everyone...I'm Betsy...I live in the big city...I don't even need to hold on when I ride the train!"
"Oh craaaaaaaaaaaap!"


After a little walk we arrived at our destination. And since none of us had any knowledge of food from Nepal, we decided to order the prix fixe menu for six people for $106! Perfect! (FYI, turns out food from Nepal tastes a lot like food from India)


While we were waiting for our food we learned a couple of really important things.
One, Cameron has a "look." This is his "look." If you know Cameron, you know I'm not kidding around about this.

Cameron didn't believe us when we told him about his look. Here Rebecca tries to explain it to him.


And two, Paul cannot keep his eyes open in pictures very well.
Take one, eyes closed.

Take two, eyes closed again (Jeff is so t-o'd!)

Take three, Ha! Joke's on you Paul!


After a big plate of appetizers they brought us each a metal platter of our very own with all sorts of yummy things. They also brought community bowls of chicken, salmon, lamb and lentils. It was pretty rad.




Also exciting at dinner was our waiter who was constantly refilling our glasses with this strange water pitcher that poured the water in the most perfect stream. And he never spilled the water unless he was refilling Cameron's glass.


Thanks Rebecca, Slick & Rose for such a great dinner!


Here's all of us riding the train home.


Maybe the boys all dressed the same because they thought it would help them beat Rebecca and me at MarioKart? Nice try.

    That's no angel around Paul's ankle. Paul is an angel.

    i didn't think it was an angel at all. i thought paul just wears those shoes with the lights in the heels. those things are sweet.

    Yes, that's true. His ankle is especially holy. Holy enough to eat off of in a pinch.
