Carnelian Room Dinner

We received a surprise email from Anastasia on Friday morning asking if we wanted to do dinner at the Carnelian Room in San Francisco.

Her fren's husband, Bob was organizing a surprise party for his wife, Sun who was celebrating her 50th birthday...:) Bob found out that two people were unable to attend and two seats were available.... and Anastasia asked us if we wanted to go...

Since I have never been to the Carnelian Room, we decided to go out on this spontaneous dinner outing..:)

We got there around 7pm and the dinner was in nice room with 4 tables; seating about 32 people. There was an open bar and a dance floor!! The guest of honor arrived about 7.30pm and was she surprised..Her husband was so sweet to invite all her good frens.

While we said our hellos to the birthday gal, there were hor devours served. They included crab cakes, lamb on a bone, curry pastries and others...

Dinner started with a appetizer; scallops with scrimps and orange... the scallops were excellent..

The main meal was steak with potatoes and vegetables... as you can see from the picture, it was a huge piece of meat.. yummy!

And of course, dessert was the best... it was strawberries, blueberries, black berries all mixed in with vanilla ice cream. And to top it up, there was still chocolate cake!!
Sun's husband was so nice to organize this whole event. He even had a slide show to show all his travelling memories with her. He is also a very good dancer and it was nice to see him and Sun dancing the smooth dances on the dance floor..:)

Such a fun night. Anastasia, thanks for inviting us..:)
