Last night was the final evening for the "Front Row Girls".
One summer we got into the habit of seeing every crappy movie that opened. There were some that I drew the line for but yes I got sucked into watching "You Got Served" among others. One member of our party (not naming names) always ran late so we would get stuck sitting in the front row, hence the name.
In the last few years we have spent less time together. My three friends have serious boyfriends, work is hectic and we don't live close to each other. However, when we do see each other it's like no time has passed at all.
We went to Terroni. I haven't been there for dinner yet and the place was packed. I thought the "no substitutions policy" would scare people. Most of the negative comments I have heard about Terroni is regarding that policy. I don't see what the big deal is. If you have food allergies or are a vegeterian there are things to eat as the menu is varied. However, it's an authenic Southern Italian restaurant. Why should they add/delete things because some people think they know better than the Italian chef and Calabrian owners what should be in these types of dishes?
The food was as good as the original in Toronto. My friends were very sweet to give me some euros for my trip. After dinner we stopped by my place so they could pick up some furniture. One final hug, lots of tears and as one friend left my apartment she said, "this sucks."
