And, another fine week it has been. We celebrated our “work” Christmas Party last Sunday, Super Bowl, and had lots of fun. Sharon and I try to plan an afternoon that allows everyone to interact in a much different way that when we have our noses to the grind stone at the Bistro. We are a good team as we take care of business and a great work family on our little forays. The day started meeting at the Bistro at 11:30, boarding a cool Detroit Art Deco bus, champagne toast and off to our first stop Twelve Oaks Mall. Everyone got a crisp C-Note and 1 hour to shop for themselves – not for kids, husbands, boyfriends… themselves. It was fun to see their purchases and awards were given for the closest to spending exactly $100 and for the most items purchased. Amazingly, 4 people spent to the penny. Then we headed to Walled Lake and All Star Lanes where we enjoyed bowling and a great Mexican Taco Bar catered by Mary Spencer from Taste in Northville. I bowled once in my life and was skeptical but ended up doing fairly well and enjoying the heck out of it. I never realized the great core, strength and balance exercise that bowling requires. We all had a great time and after dropping everyone off at the Bistro I headed home and took my lovely pups for a walk. I never turned on “the game” until half time and enjoyed a spirited second half. A great day that was enjoyed by all!
Heads up -- Tuesday is Valentines Day. St. Valentine lived in Rome during the rule of Emperor Claudius. Claudius wanted to have the largest army in the world and thought that by making marriage unlawful that he’d get many more young men to join. Fr. Valentine thought this was absurd and continued to secretly marry couples. He was ultimately caught and sentenced to death. While in jail many young people threw flowers into his cell. He was befriended by the prison guard’s daughter who spent many hours visiting with him. On the day of his death, February 14, 269AD, he wrote her a note thanking her and signed it Love Valentine. Valentine is the patron Saint of Love and thus the commeration of his day. Over a billion Valentine ’s Day cards are sent every year with teachers receiving the most.
Make Your Reservations for Tuesday Because Wine Tastes Better Than Roses and Nothing is Nicer than Sharing a Relaxing, Delicious Meal at The Bistro!! If you prefer to eat at home call for a to-go and we’ll have it ready and waiting.
