Though all weeks are good some good weeks are better than others and last week was just that! Before seeing "Les Miserables" we had dinner at Cafe Vico, needless to say one of my favorite restaurants! We had a groupon for $40 worth of food, with Rion having Portobello Mushrooms and Peppers ($16.95) and a glass of Miller LIte ($6) while I had Shrimp Scampi ($29.95) and we both had a dish of ice cream ($4.95 each) The check came to $24.39 plus tip. I must admit I had some sticker shock at the new prices but at least I had that groupon!
Another sticker shock was when we got to the parking garage. Allen and I usually valet park and we have gotten use to the $25 charge plus tip but the last time we parked at the garage it was $6 and now it was $15---but at least no tip involved!
On Thursday, having another groupon, this one for $50, Allen and I went to Cafe Vico for lunch and the prices were a little more reasonable. For an appetizer we shared an order of 4 meatballs in a very tasty sauce ($10.95). Allen had a 'special' flounder dish done in a light sauce ($14.95) while I had the Veal Francese on linguini ($14.95) and, yes, 2 dishes of vanilla ice cream ($9.90) a diet cola and a cup of coffee bringing our check to $3.95 plus tip!

I can only wish you a week of seeing a good musical and eating out---twice--at your favorite restaurant!
