Coffe, Dinner and X-Men 3

It is with great joy that I report to you that I finally made it home yesterday, and that I did get my cup of hot coffee.

Ahhhhh . . . blessed coffee . . .

Since my hunny-bunny was out of town, greta_k, Carlos and I decided to paint the town last night. By painting the town I mean going out for dinner and a movie.

After giving it some thought, we decided to go to Grevey's, a nifty restaurant down the road, which also features a sports bar. This prompted Carlos to exclaim in horror: "Oh, my god! I am going to a sports bar with my mother! Argh!"

The fact that there were sports and a tv involved helped to ease his fright.

That was only the beginning.

Dinner was excellent. I had never been at Grevey's, although I drive by every day. Also, at one point my eldest child, Hector le Darke, worked there as a server. Yet, I had never set foot in there although I had always been curious, given that the place seems to be perennially full.

In the end, Grevey's proved to be a nice family place, with tv sets all around, a bar outside, and a restaurant inside. We went to the restaurant, since the outside bar was too noisy for our taste, where we were treated to good food and good service.

I think we are coming back again.

Afterwards, we went to our neighborhood theatre, and caught the 9:35 show of X-Men 3. Honestly, I liked it a lot. Sure, I don't think that it is as good as X-1 and X-2, but it is still very entertaining and it leaves you with the question of how the heck are they going to wing out an X-4, and include Prof. Xavier, Jane Grey and Cyclops without jumping the shark.

But I have faith. Surely they can come up with something that will be convincing and not ruin the series.

Next pic? Pirates of the Caribbean, followed closely by Nacho Libre.

Stay tuned.
