Our anniversary dinner is over. Time to shelf it away in the special celebration closet and move on to life’s normal conventions.
Our dining experience was a tremendously successful one; however, we’ve learned a few important lessons that I would like to share with you.
Lesson #1: Be mindful of restaurants with a 5:1 wait staff /table ratio.
Lesson #2: Resist restaurants with valet services.
Lesson #3: Begin mind-searching next year’s dining alternatives, which will address Lessons #2 & 3. Do this while you are contemplating ordering dessert.
Lesson #4: Make peace with your bill. Realistically, it’s not useful to fantasize about offering dishwashing services so late in the game.
Lesson #5: And finally. Be grateful for all the anniversaries past and those to come.
