Our Anniversary Dinner

Dear Calgary Tower,

Thank you for your hospitality for our first anniversary dinner. Your food was fantastic and I was impressed that the vast majority of your menu selections were gluten free without trying. We also enjoyed the 360 degree view of Calgary.

Your restaurant did a good job of starting us off with lovely drinks (Punch Drunk for me, Dark Night for him) – Mr. Bean even enjoyed the sambuca.

Grenadine, how I love you. You make drinks that much more delicious.

Mr Bean would like to say how much he loved the scallops with bacon potato pancakes. I think you sent him to heaven for a moment.

HPIM2193

Mushroom soup, I was so happy that I could eat you.

HPIM2194

Steak and mashed potatoes, you were apparently one of the best steaks Mr. Bean has ever eaten.

HPIM2196

Pan Seared Halibut and Ratatouille, you made my plate look bare, but you filled me up perfectly.

HPIM2198

Banana split, your presentation almost but my Creme Brulee to shame.

Mr. Bean really enjoyed the glass floor you recently had put in.

Me, on the other hand, wasn’t quite so thrilled – I think my whole “I’m afraid of heights” thing played a big part in that.

Regardless of the floor, thank you very much for the very enjoyable evening.

Cheers,

Mr. and Mrs. Bean
