Walking to dinner
We had a warm welcome from host & hostess. When I made the reservation on OpenTable.com, there was a field for notes. I thought, it can't hurt to tell them that we are celebrating our 1st anniversary! The two staffers congratulated us and when we were seated, our waitress, Jodie, gave us sweet wishes as well!
