Drew and Shannon drove up from SoCal on Friday. We met them for dinner at Shangri-la. Sharon and I had dinner there in September.
The four of us split duck liver tostadas, aquachlies (ahi tuna), grilled flat iron and branzino. It was a very nice dinner. Sharon is planning to go back with Janie in the near future.
Heading back to the house, we celebrated Shannon's birthday with presents and cake. We got Shannon some Joe Malone perfume as a present. Although I was feeling under the weather, we ended up sitting and talking late. I took Tiber out for a neighborhood walk about 11:30 pm.
Drew and Shannon will be spending part of the weekend here. They are going to an Andrew Bird concert at the Monrovia Center on Monday night.
