Aren’t Fridays the best? Besides Saturdays and Sundays, that is. Even though Friday is still a part of the workweek, everyone is always in such a better mood just because of the fact at 5:30pm it is officially the weekend. The whole energy of the office is completely different. Love it.
When deciding how we would spend our Friday night, I suggested to Greg that we choose between eating dinner at home and going out to a movie, or going out to dinner and renting a movie. Splurge on one, save on the other.
Even though we have just about seen every movie worth watching that is at Redbox right now, we decided to go out to dinner and skip the movie theater. That took care of one decision, but then we were left with where we would eat. Too many choices!!
After some UrbanSpoon-ing, we decided on a place right around the corner: Vespa Pizzeria. For some reason, we have never made it to the popular Island pizza joint. Greg has lived here for almost a year and a half now, yet we have always seemed to choose a different place for dinner. We were both looking forward to trying something new, and it didn’t hurt that we could walk to the restaurant on such a pretty evening (even though it’s already getting too cold outside for me, but it would not be worth a 30 second car ride to drive).
As much as I wanted to try any one of the amazing-sounding wood fired pizzas, the Chicken Parmesan Sandwich stuck out to me. I am not always a fan of Chicken Parm, but once I saw it on the menu, I couldn’t stop wondering what their’s was like. And, since Greg was getting pizza, I knew I could steal a bite of his 😉
