Had a sublime afternoon. Punched out at work and walked over to the performing arts center and sat down only moments before the symphony started playing. (werk perk comp ticket) They performed various selections from Wagner, Guilmant and Tchaikovsky.
Afterwards, I went down to one of our local seafood houses and ate at the buffet. (comp free buffet ticket) Don't have the stomach I use to have but I still filled up. Oh, my! Only a tiny bit of the following and mostly only one piece of each and still I didn't have even half of what was on offer. Some of the things I sampled were salmon with dill, baked mahi mahi, teriyaki shark, clams casino, steamed shrimp, steamed blue crab, garlic (hot) chicken wing, spare rib, broccoli, long crisp string beans, baked beans and Maryland crab soup.
But the best was the half dozen of raw oysters on the half shell that I topped with cocktail sauce, horseradish and fresh lemon. Nothing beats that combo. YUM!!! The only thing missing was a fine bottle of champagne, though I did have a very nice Blue Marlin cocktail which was very tasty.
