Keeping with the trip down memory lane theme from yesterday, Allison and I went to Capron Park Zoo in Attleboro, MA. I told her we were going on a surprise trip to the zoo. We stopped and picked up some subs and then had a picnic lunch.
Capron Park Zoo is right near the Attleboro High School. I used to go there as a child. I took art lessons at a building at the zoo when I was really young. I loved going to the zoo. I always have.
Today brought back some great memories of the times my parents took me to the zoo over the years. At that time there were some polar bears, and some buffalo. But Frosty died long ago. Capron Park Zoo is another thing I can’t wait to do with our “future kids” (Kids not in existence or even glimmering in existence yet, and yes I’m gonna write that every time).
Allison fell in love with the Civet, the Snow Leopards, Ocelots and the Sloth Bear (pictured above). I loved taking Allison to the zoo. It was a great way to get outside and have fun and it was very inexpensive, great for families. I took a bunch of pictures from the day. They can be found at my Flickr account.
Tonight Allison and I went to dinner with our friends Autumn and Kenny. We went to the Funway Cafe for Pasta Night. When Kenny first told us about going to Pasta night at the Funway Cafe his eyes kinda glazed over and you could tell he was thinking about the awesome food. He was certainly right about the food being awesome.
For $12.95 a person you get salad, a glass of wine, breadsticks and then you go to the pasta station to get specialty cooked to order pasta from Joe the Chef.
First off you chose what type of pasta you wanted, ziti, gemelli, or spaghetti. Then you choose the meats, you could have chicken, shrimp, scallops, sausage, meatballs, or swordfish. You could choose one or all of them. Then you pick your sauce alfredo, marinara, pink, and fra diavlo. You could also choose vegetables, broccoli, peppers, zucchini, carrots, and mushrooms. Again you could choose from one to all of them.
Joe cooked everything right in front of us. He had four portable gas burners going at a time. This guy was a master. We each were only able to eat half of our meals so there’s lunch for tomorrow. Awesome!
Now the bad news: Pasta night is only around till the end of June because another restaurant is taking over. So if you haven’t been out for pasta night you got to do yourself a favor and get over there some Wednesday before Pasta Night disappears forever.
So guys for guys night we may want to do a Wednesday and expand our horizons beyond boneless buffalo wings and fries.
