Handcock, Houston's, Dot's

We went to see Hancock with the Bagans. Funny movie with Will Smith as a drunk, sarcastic, and misunderstood "superhero". Hancock’s well-intentioned heroics might get the job done and save countless lives, but always seem to leave jaw-dropping damage in their wake. Jason Bateman was cute in the movie.

Then it was off to Houston's for dinner. It was average. We've been there countless times before, but it is really best for beef which we do not eat anymore, especially the Prime Rib. They usually have a few fish selections, but they are usually only okay. We started with the grilled artichoke and famous spinach artichoke dip (yummy). I had the Grilled Loup De Mer (Hardwood grilled with Marcona almonds and steamed broccoli), the fish was blah, not worth $30. I also had a glass (or two) of Meyer Family Syrah, which was good. Chad had Half a roasted chicken with crushed herbs, served with Louisiana-style dirty rice. Tony & Ave both had beef. I like the ambiance, especially the artichoke looking lamps. Their booths are big and comfy. The parking is bad, and there is usually a long wait, so be prepared to get a drink at the bar. There is a nice patio outside to enjoy your cocktail.

We had stopped at Dot's on the way in to Houstons (it is right next door) and got some cupcakes which our waitress put in the fridge for us while we ate. They were so good! I had the Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting.
