Last summer, Phil and I made plans to meet with friends on "The Lawn" of the Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island. It's a gorgeous place overlooking the ocean, where they serve drinks and appetizers to those sitting on the Adirondack chairs outside on the lawn. We were so excited to spend some time there, but as we approached the parking lot, they were turning cars away because they were over capacity. Boo. We vowed we would go back some day. Then this guy turned 39 in October, and we started planning a birthday getaway...but with kids sports schedules, work, NFP timing, and making sure someone could watch the kids....it didn't end up working out until this past weekend! Better late than never!
Newport was on the last day of their Restaurant Week, where lots of restaurants serve three course meals at a reduced price. We took advantage and headed to The Safari Room for lunch. Again, the restaurant was in an inn right on the water, just beautiful. Phil and I both had the french onion soup and then he had a roast beef sandwich, and I had the fish and chips.
