We had brunch at a roadside diner not too far from the ranch, and the drive through the mountains is always foggy and delightful. I managed to capture this out the front windshield. Afterwards we drove down to Seattle to meet Tony's cousin Dorothy and to buy kitchen knives, and then we had an absolutely amazing dinner at a Vietnamese/Thai restaurant before the symphony (Mozart's Requiem). I had never been to any symphony before that I can recall, so it was pretty mindblowing.

Jeff and I headed down to Washington for the weekend, and we intended to have dinner at a brew pub called North Fork, but we got on the road so late that they would have been closed by the time we got there. Thus, we stopped just over the border in Sumas at Bob's, where we discovered (unfortunately after our first round) that they sell $1 Rolling Rock pints between 9 and 11. Totally worth enduring the horrible music/patrons.

Jeff and I went for dinner at my dad's. It was delicious and full of good conversations. Also he gave me some dollars in lieu of a Christmas gift, a copy of Dirty Dancing on dvd, as well as a shirt I complimented him on last time I was over.

This is at the place where I get waxed. Afterwards I met Iain and friends for karaoke at the Legion on Main. We got there early enough that no one bothered us at the door, but everyone else was really hassled about not having a membership. I think we may have to start invading the Old Admiral's karaoke night instead... the beer may be more expensive, but at least no one will ask us to pay $35 in order to drink there.

In the afternoon, I went downtown and wandered around a bit, and got some shoes that were half-price plus 30% off. Score! Then, Jeff picked me up and we went to The Eatery to meet Iain/Krystyna/Jesse/Terra for delicious sushi, and then we for some reason decided to get dessert at True Confections. Here Jeff is examining the cakes on display.

In the evening time, Jeff and I ate sushi and drank beer and watched the hockey game and had a hot shower. Then Iain and Jesse came home drunk after winning a free round at the pub, and we hung out for a bit. This photo was taken in the morning and has nothing to do with any of that.

Jeff and I slept late and then went for lunch with Tony and his new lady friend, Joanne, at Bombay Bhel (seemingly the only restaurant in the Heights that was open). The food was delicious... Indian food is something I almost never crave or feel in the mood for, but once I start eating it it's so good. In the evening Jesse used my chili recipe to make dinner and we watched the hockey game.

I tend to think that NYE is a total b.s. excuse for a holiday, and people are always trying to do the MOST FUN THING EVER and it ends up being a huge letdown, so the past couple years I've kept it pretty quiet and it has been enjoyable. Jeff and I just had some Cava and sat talking, and then other people came home and we talked to them too.
I stayed home from work because of my wrist. In the evening Jeff and I braved the sub-zero temperatures and went to the Capilano Suspension Bridge to see it all lit up (my mom gave us free passes). We lasted less than an hour before I thought my feet might actually freeze and break off in little shards, so we left and warmed up with dinner at a pub.
A couple photos of the bridge can be viewed here.
