This past weekend I went to a birthday celebration for Vanessa‘s mother, Marilyn, who is a big fan of Downton Abbey. Marilyn wanted to come east to see the Downton Abbey exhibit at Winterthur. We kicked the weekend off with dinner at the Dandelion Pub. This is a cute restaurant/bar in the downtown Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia. The food was very tasty, upscale versions of traditional pub food. I had yummy fish and chips, plus I got to try bites of others’ desserts, which were divine. Thanks to Kat for helping to organize the dinner with the restaurant!
After dinner, we went across the street to the bar at Serafina for some drinks and more hanging out. We got a large booth where we could all fit, except for Mat and Steve, who elected to stand in their own guys’ corner. We had a lot of fun chatting and laughing into the late evening. After that it was bed time, because we had a long day at Winterthur ahead of us!
