Dinner at the Canoe Club
Oh man! That was one of the best dinners I have ever had. I mean it was perfect. In case you didn't see the link in the last post, the Canoe Club is a new restaurant in our area. HUGE building, with cathedral ceilings, palm trees, elegant tiki torches all outside the building, a shark tank above the bar, waterfall/wine rack. I mean this was amazing!

We had Mai Tai's in the bar. We started off with coconut-pineapple bread, which was very sweet and tasty. Our appetiser was bbq pulled pork quesadillas with mango salsa, the house salad was made up of a variety of lettuces with a lime-passionfruit vinagrette. Dave got Hawaiian snapper (almost steak size) grilled with passionfruit butter, mashed sweet potatoes, and grilled veggies. I had a filet mignon with horseradish mashed potatoes, carrots and asparagus. For dessert, the restaurant offers "mini desserts" for a low price, each in what looks like a large shotglass or narrow juice glass. They only have five, Dave got strawberry shortcake and I got the chocolate brownie one. They aren't too big, just big enough to satisfy your sweet tooth without making you feel so full.

It was on the pricey side, but no more than other places we have gone on our anniversay and birthdays. The service was awesome and speedy. If you live in the southern Chicago burbs, I highly recommend this place. Very tropical and reminded me of our honeymoon on Maui. (awww)

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
