Milo's Cellar & Sidewalk Cafe

Who wants to pick up litter all morning and then go home to cook in the evening? Not me (just kidding, I would have) but John thought it would be nice for me to take a break. Dinner out also relieves him from doing dishes so we decided to go to Boulder City for a light dinner at Milo's Cellar.

We grabbed a couple glasses of wine while we waited for a table to open up at the Sidewalk Cafe.

This was the Saturday before Halloween so many of our friends were dressed up and enjoying a party somewhere. I hate to admit it but this year, I couldn't find the spirit to celebrate this holiday of trick-or-treating. I'd much prefer celebrating October and only the treats like an Oktoberfest or Purple Haze beer.

When we were seated at our table, we shared the Chianti Platter:
Salami, pepperoni, fresh mozzarella and aged provolone cheeses, pepperoncinis, Mediterranean olives, cherry tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and artichoke hearts. Served with bread and extra virgin olive oil & balsamic vinegar dip.

John had the Beef, Blue, and Dews:
Thinly sliced beef, melted blue cheese, peppadews, and garlic mayo, served on a hogie roll.

October is about cooler weather with temperatures in the high 70s, low 80s. It means we can open our doors and windows to allow fresh air in our house (the cats love being that much closer to the outside world where they can squeak at birds and quails). The trees that are able to, turn fabulous colors. More and more people flock outdoors to walk with their dogs or babies in strollers. I thought I might be able to take Havi for a stroll on a leash since she likes riding my shoulder around the neighborhood.

On this Saturday night, many others were dining inside Milo's Cafe or out on the patio where we were seated. Next door there were many sports fan gathered to share a beer or dinner of pizza, enjoying each other's company and their game. It was a perfect ending to my day.
