No more Italian for us!

I cannot wait a moment longer to tell you all about my dinner experience last night. Megan and I were goin to go to La Viena (across the street) but sadly they were not open on Mondays, so we decided to go to La Breza in Bridgeland. Not a good idea...the meal was quite nice, I really enjoyed it, and even had a lovely leftover lunch today, but the unexpected dinner company was really quite exceptional, but in a bad way....

First we got a bit lost because I switched the street and avenue, but after a few phone calls and a dilema of where to seat us in the near empty restaurant we sat down an d ordered drinks. Everything was going well, we were perusing the menu and chatting away when a very crazy man took a fancy to us and decided to engage us in some wacky conversation about this cold weather phenomenon we have here in Calgary called winter, and about the menu, fun stuff!

Further into the evening we were brought free brushetta complete with him offering us the basket of bread - two times - we therefore spent the balance of the night trying to blend into the wall so our friend didn't come back for some more - although he did tell us several times that we were pretty and thanked us for coming in.


Funny thing is that the last time Megs and I - and Heather went out for dinner we had a very similar experience at a different italian restaurant....note to self, stop going Italian and perhaps we can avoid the crazy men...At least the dinner table company was lovely!

Okay, after some careful investigating, I found out the "guy" was the owner of La Brezza! His name is Marco... But regardless, next time let's try a different cuisine.

Cam told me the same when I told him about our adventure.....I agree, let's try something else!

Hey!! i remember that guy too!! don't you remember him? he used to be on tv all the time. i think he's also a huge Flames fan. you know i'm really surprised that you didn't ask him to 'go away' (in a nice way of course).

but maybe you are right. you should probably just stay away from italian and stick with Spiros instead!!! hahaha!
