#4, a new (to us) great place it eat: This evening J and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Forepaugh’s, a very nice restaurant in Saint Paul. We had a table on their roof top area looking down over Irvine park. The food was excellent and the complementary champagne went down well. I had scallops which were served in a lovely broth with leeks and fingerling potatoes. Desert was a blueberry cheesecake. I now need a diet….
