We had something planned for dinner tonight, but by the end of the work day, Shane really just felt like getting a drink and a snack somewhere downtown. This worked out well, as I was pretty unmotivated and sleepy, and ordering off a short menu was about all I could manage. I met him at The Earle again, where we enjoyed thick slices of soft Italian bread and two bowls of mussels in a white wine sauce – for SIX DOLLARS AND FIFTY CENTS. $6.50! An outrageously good price for a very delicious dinner. Even with drinks added on to the total, dinner came in under $20, and we were home and full by a little after 6pm. Good stuff.
