Celebrating Katie's Birthday

POST #    1984

Saturday night, I went to Shelly's on 57th St. to help Katie celebrate her 20-something birthday. I personally had never been to Shelly's, but anything that has steak and seafood couldn't have been too bad. The item I was most disappointed in was probably the creamed spinach, which seemed too watery/creamy.

And if you're curious as to what that last item is, it's a marshmallow dessert with ice cream inside. It was doused with flaming Bacardi 151, which was really, really cool.

Also disappointing was the quality of the pictures I took. Man, going back to the S70 in low light didn't turn out well. Perhaps it was a combination of the lack of usage of the S70 combined with the stellar results of the 20D in low light, which makes the results so disheartening. Mental note, lug 20D wherever I go from now on.

Agh! The S70 does an OK job if you WHITE BALANCE it!

perhaps adam, but that doen't cut down on the way the image looks grainy at iso 400.

True. The noise cannot be helped on the S70. But you know me, I'm always hasslin' people about setting the white balance!

I'd like to get one of those fancy-pants cameras you have. Maybe I'll save up Slice ad revenues this year for one.

what is that disk-like thing next to the creamed spinach in the third picture?

it looks like a giant knish. or maybe that's my stomach communicating to me.

the disk-like thing is their hash brown potato pie. insanely greasy and tasty too.
