With Friends" profile as Morgan Hill residents, we wanted of make the best of the situation, so we invited them to share what we had. We started with a bottle of Sarah’s Reserve Pinot Noir and a bottle of Estate Chardonnay. We next offered up a platter of West Side Grill’s Tempura Green Beans with Saffron Aioli and Crispi Calamari with Cocktail Sauce. Both are great meal starters! We followed the appetizers with a salad medley. A Chop Chop (Crispy romaine, garbanzo beans, roasted turkey, Entertainment red onions, avocado, fresh tomato, bacon, Gorgonzola cheese, housemade creamy balsamic dressing) from Café 152 Bread Company and Caprese (Mozzarella cheese, fresh tomato, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper) from Sweet Sicily. While we longed for the hamburgers from the broken-down food truck, we had to admit that we were pretty full. But we still had more. While at Sweet Sicily we had picked up a couple of desserts. I missed the names on them. Suffice it to say, they were delicious and consumed totally. Hats off to Sarah’s, they kept us informed on the status of the food truck and when it was clear the truck was not going to make it, they ordered delivery pizza for everyone! We also have to thank the staff for setting up a table for us and keeping our desserts cold. And a shout out to Jim Ashley who provided us with some great background music all evening long. Although the evening did not go as planned, we did manage to make the best of a “what can go wrong will go wrong” evening. Venue GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018 105
