Last Saturday we went to Stoneforge in Foxboro, just up the road from Gillette Stadium. A huge place with a really casual atmosphere, the food was good and the place was very comfortable. We sat for a couple hours after dinner near the lounge talking and listening to the guy with the acoustic guitar who played everything from Beatles to The Fray. Someone mentioned going over to Patriot Place and checking out a couple of clubs but that didn't happen. Although Ruth, our designated driver, did drive us through the complex on our way home. (We're getting old)
Saturday's selection was one of the more casual places we've gone to. Over the years we have been to the nicest restaurants in RI and MA, and we never go back to the same place twice. We've also done a couple trips including a long weekend in Bermuda about 15 years ago. One night recently we went to Fred & Steve's at Twin River and had a fabulous dinner. Afterwards we dropped into the Comedy Club for the show and then went into the casino for a couple hours. In charge of the account as always, Gisele paid for dinner, paid our way into the comedy show and then gave us some money to gamble with. Picture this: Three grown women standing around another who is passing out $20 bills. We had a blast that night.
Of course, the most important aspect of this 'club' is the friendship. Although there are always lots of laughs, there have been more than a few tears over the years. We've all been through our ups and downs, and we're always there to listen. I can't imagine not having Gisele, Ruth & Kathy in my life, and I expect that when we're in our 80's, The Dinner Club will still be out on the town!
