Two sitters means A. got to go see a movie: Angry Birds. She brought her iPad with the game that you can unlock levels if you turn the app on during the end credits. Fun!

T. went to Altitude trampoline park and jumped for an hour, then had pizza.

R. and I went to Woods Hill Table. We had the baguette (because pork fat spread! Apologies to my vegetarian, pork allergic, dietary restricted against pork, etc. readers), oysters, beef tartare (between the oysters and the beef, that's a lot of high-iron content and raw) and the steak.
We had a glass of dolcetto with dinner, and I had a manhattan at the start and he got a sherry (I think -- he may correct me in the comments) at the end. Service was excellent as always and everything very tasty. Vegan dessert was an espresso chocolate torte. No coffee, because they've quit serving decaf on account of the sheer volume of water involved in making decaf. That's a relatively new development for WHT -- they used to have this amazeballs decaf espresso called "Deanimator" -- but I get where they are coming from altho I'm not going to adopt that particular position for myself they obvs are doing what they can to live their values and I applaud that.

I don't think dolcetto is going to supplant any of my wine preferences, but it was very drinkable.

The after dinner drink was a late harvest zinfandel. Like a port without all the tannins. What age there was went to forming glycerol, but not a whole lot of nuttiness. My cocktail had whiskey, Angostura bitters and something herbal.

the herbal thing was house amaro #2
LJ doesn't like blank messages.

Drink name was "Shawmut", IIRC.
