What could be lamer than making my Friday Lame Post on Saturday morning? Sorry, folks. I’m going to blame the full pours of wine at the Ilion Elks Lodge. Steven and I went there for Fish Fry. We went into the bar to get a glass of white wine to go with it. The nice bartender filled those glasses to the brim! And we had two apiece. I came home and fell asleep on the couch. In my defense… no, there is no defense. I drank wine and fell asleep. I might as well cop to it.
We enjoyed a really delicious fish dinner. I had broiled haddock with rice and Steven had broiled scallops with french fries. Both dinners came with cole slaw. I wanted a baked potato, but they were out. I told Steven that meant we must eat there on a subsequent Friday. I guess I could just bake my own potato at home, but what fun is that? For one reason, I can’t broil any fish to go with it. I’ve never used the broiler in my oven. I don’t even know if it works (ooh, that could be a future blog post: cooking on the broiler).
I am putting the finishing touches on Secrets at Suiter House, as we begin rehearsals tomorrow. Perhaps I will write a blog post about it, without giving away any secrets, of course.
Ilion Elks Lodge is located at 8 West St., Ilion NY. They serve their Fish Fry on Fridays during Lent. For more information, you can call them at 315-894-1444.
