The anniversary of the death of my friend's husband is coming up on Dec. 6th. She is new here, but where she was from, a big group of friends took her out to lunch or breakfast every year. I wanted to do something similar. She loves sweet things, and American food/grill/pasta like Cheesecake Factory. But we have been there recently, & I wanted to do something even more special or different. She is not a super gourmet person- she might even like a themed restaurant, but I just can't come up with any ideas. We are actually in the Northern VA area (Lorton/Springfield) and the closer to home, the more people would attend, but if it's perfect enough, we could go to DC or Tyson's.
