Alice's thread inspired me ... that and the lobster and crab stuffed shrimp I got at Capital Grill recently. $35, I ate part of one, and fed the rest to the dogs (mighty expensive dog food). Luckily I already knew they weren't allergic to shellfish. Somehow feeding it to them feels better than tossing it in the trash.
I found it interesting that our waiter took note of my basically untouched plate, but didn't ask me how my food was, instead asking the people on either side of me, who were eating theirs. He suggested asking for him by name on a return visit (umm, no and no).
What about you?
