Last weekend, Jack's friend Jeffery stayed overnight with us. Saturday night, Jack went and stayed overnight at Jeffery's house.
We used the opportunity to spend a night out on the town. Sharon has been wanting to go to dinner at Chops; it was voted Best New Restaurant by readers of Sacramento Magazine last year. While the service and my steak were good, we were not impressed by the cut of meat that Sharon had. The salads were also uninspired.
After dinner, we went to see "The Passion of Christ." Ebert describes the movie by saing that "this is the most violent film I have ever seen." While the film is a powerful depiction of the last day of Christ's life, I have to agree with the quote in Ebert's review that the relentless gore is self-defeating. As a side bar, I have felt that Braveheart with its battle scenes was the most violent movie I had ever seen. Braveheart was also directed by Mel Gibson.
