Not a Half-Bad Evening
Start with some good friends, add a generous helping of great food, a dash of good wine and it makes for a great meal. While Clay Pit has changed ownership, the food is still great. Having said that, one would think that 630pm on a Wednesday wouldn't be too late for a "signature" dish. Even without curried mussels, the korma, mirgh masala, tikka masala, tamarind shrimp and vindaloo still made for a great meal.
Next go for a hilarious one-man show of David Sedaris's tale of being an elf in Macy's Santaland, and the only problem is that laughing for an hour+ on a full stomach isn't the most comfortable experience. Finish the night with some good conversation over a beer and life is great!
