We had a reservation tonight at The Melting Pot in Addison. I'm not exactly sure what "reservation" actually means there, because we were there on time and sat at their bar for an hour before realizing we weren't going to be seated anytime soon. The point was driven home after they seated two parties that came in after us and did not have prior reservations. (Yes, I have good hearing.)

Vogon asked what I'd rather have and I said Clay Pit, because we've eaten there before and I know their food is good. Found out that in the evenings all their available parking is coned off for valet parking... by valets that made my skill at backing out of spaces look smokin' l33t. We won't be eating there again.

So we're back home and I'm waiting for the shows I wanted to watch tonight anyway to repeat -- Who Wants to Be A Superhero? in half an hour, Burn Notice in an hour and a half. Vogon suggested we try again tomorrow, but he's smoking paint chips if he thinks we have any chance of having a dinner out that we don't have to wear earplugs for on a Friday night.

Another year, another time he learns there's a reason why I suggest we go to IHOP when he says we can eat anywhere for my birthday. I like to eat at restaurants. Like at ones that actually have parking spaces and serve food.

I have a big fat crush on Geof. And those gigantic buckets of fondant they get. *fans self*

I also cheer for the Food Network Challenges involving cakes, although I hate the series' three-wins-and-you're-out rule. I want to see a battle of the titans with Bronwen, Collette, Duff, Mike and one dark horse like Elissa Strauss, who made that /awesome/ sock monkey cake.

Melting Pot is so overrated. Ingrid and I went there for a 'special evening' and we both left going 'meh.' Consider yourself lucky.

oh happy birthday! I noticed you and my brother had the same birthday. He's 25 today. Damn. Seems like I just turned 25. Anyhow he flew off to Vegas and never calls me anyway so I'll wish you an awesome birthday instead of him.

Happy birthday!

I'd write or call for the manager. That's crappy service for one who had reservations. Did they even say anything to you? Be vocal, and complain. Also, consider reviewing them on Insider Pages, Yelp, or Yahoo Local. The least they can do is apologize for the bad service.

Burn Notice rocks!

Sorry you had a bad birthday dinner, that sucks. But yay, Burn Notice!

Thursday nights are the best TV night this summer! With the return of Psych, I'm actually watching USA for something other than Law & Order reruns. (:

Oy, that's awful. Makes IHOP sound pretty good! Hope you had a happy birthday overall anyway, though.
