We'd thought about going to Damon's for dinner - him for the prime rib, me for their sweet potato casserole - but they've either gone out of business or got bought out. Their old building apparently hosts three different restaurants now, Malone's, Harry's Bar & Grill, and Aqua Sushi Bar. In any case their parking lot was completely filled, including some overflow into the grass, so the heck with that idea. We ended up at Rafferty's, which turned out to be an excellent choice. He got that prime rib after all, and I went with the catfish. Mmmm!!! They were slow enough we had a section pretty much to ourselves, our waitress was attentive without being intrusive, and it made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Speaking of zen gardens, I did some Googling for layout ideas and found a virtual zen garden of sorts, a really addictive little Flash program.
