Fogo de Allan

Luckily, I have a fairly loose expense account that allows me to eat at fine restaurants. On Monday night, Steve & I chose Fogo de Chao's in Addison, TX.

For those that aren't familiar with Brazillian Churrascaria steakhouses, I feel sorry for you. Imagine a fine restaurant with great food and wine and all-you-can-eat portions. It's the best of both quality & quantity. They have about 14+ meats served to you by gauchos that walk around the restuarant. You indicate that you want more by flipping a card from 'red' to 'green'. When you're full, then you flip it back to 'red'. We have a couple of these restaurants in a smaller scale in San Francisco - Espetus on Market St. being my favorite.

Steve and I had good times while we enjoyed out glutton-fest. I bought new jeans recently and I wore them out to the restaurant. Steve noticed that I didn't remove all the tags from it.
Afterwards we went to Duke's Bar for a few drinks. The trip back was a little humorous as we didn't have enough change for the toll road so we just drove through it. Hopefully Budget Rent-A-Car won't care.

Until next time. Ciao!
