Anguilla, Part 3: Newbies by the Numbers

That evening our friends Hal and Donna invited us over to their villa in Island Harbour for sunset cocktails.

I wore a very special outfit: Donna made this dress for me, using a sarong I found at Irie Life. Made it! Me, I can barely use scissors without adult supervision.

After drinks we drove the short distance over to Ben's for dinner.

See that pointy plant in the foreground? It had no sooner stabbed me right in the crotch when I heard a muffled "oooof" behind me, only to turn and see Trina nearly impaled through the groin by the same sneaky shrub. (It is only with great restraint that I do not make any bush puns here.)

Sadly, she hasn't been able to sit upright since.

I knew I was having Ben's excellent pepperoni pizza, and came prepared in case I needed a slice for the road.

The next day we decided to check out Cap Juluca. Obviously they'll let anybody in this place.

Mother Nature ensured that we didn't overstay our welcome.

Ferryboat Inn may not be as fancy as Cap Juluca, but the burgers are better and that guy Christian is somewhat ok, too, now that he's married to Jenn.

Someone who is more than just ok is Marjorie, who made an entire casserole dish full of homemade scalloped potatoes just for me. Which I proceeded to inhale at a rate that would make Joey Chestnut break out in a sweat.

Later, the guys dropped me and Trina off at CuisinArt while they checked out Christian's new venture, AXA Brewery. [NOTE: AXA Brewery is currently closed but should be back up and running soon. Save water, drink beer!]

Meanwhile, over at CuisinArt, Trina and I were busy contorting ourselves into their egg chairs and making people jealous of our frozen mojitos.

It had been a long day -- even more so for those of us who downed a bushel of potatoes at lunch -- so we picked up dinner at B&D's for a well-deserved night in.

The four of us couldn't stay apart for long, though, and met up that afternoon at the Dune Preserve.

But the swim platform at CuisinArt beckoned, and after our encounter with the Pee-king Duck, we were powerless to resist. And so we sloshed aboard, chistening everything in our paths with frozen mojito.

The next morning we were set to depart on the ferry back to St. Martin. It was a Sunday, so we negotiated a deal: If Ferryboat would open that morning just for us, we'd provide the sausage and egg sandwiches and the entertainment (a.k.a. Trina in any sort of hat).

Anguilla, Pt. 3: Duck, Duck, Truce

Indeed, Q's web site states, "Built stone by stone over a 10-year period, this fortress includes priceless Haitian art and antiques, all selected by famed owner Geoffrey Fieger." One can only hope to be so rich as to need to build a fortress, er, resort to house one's priceless art collection.

With meatballs on the brain, there was only one place to go for dinner: Dolce Vita.

We decided on our "usuals" -- the spicy seafood pasta and the pillowy gnocchi -- but when the dishes arrived, I was disappointed to see that they looked a bit smaller than usual.

That's because, unbeknownst to me, Abbi had planned a veritable feast for us . . . and the pasta dishes were just the appetizer.

large_2f11b980-e05a-11e9-8082-638db40d8879.jpg

That's right, an entire duck. Roasted to crispy-skinned perfection and served with an a l'orange sauce prepared tableside that was so good I was tempted to chug it right out of the gravy boat.

We tried to finish two bowls of pasta and an entire duck and the tiramisu, but even I knew when it was finally time to surrender. And so a smiling JoJo enjoyed the leftovers.

The next morning was moving day (or, more accurately after our indulgences at Dolce Vita, moving slowly day). We took in a final sunrise before departing Octagon.

We were eastbound for Periwinkle Villa by the Sea, a lovely villa tucked away in Island Harbour. Because the friends who own this villa are sweet and charming and generous, I think the less I say about them the better, lest they discover that way lower-maintenance and less-gluttonous guests than the likes of me and Angel would also love to arrive on island to views like these . . .

. . . and to homemade biscotti on their pillow.

Periwinkle is cleverly designed with three levels, each of which houses, well, an entire house. We stayed on the middle level, which kept us close to our hosts but also afforded each couple plenty of privacy.

Have you eaten at Ben's yet? If not, then not only are you missing out on the island's best pizza, but you're also missing the chance to completely carb out by adding a side of cheesy au gratin potatoes.

Anguilla, Stage 5: Accept the Things You Cannot Change

The next day Angel was feeling even better than the night before -- well enough, in fact, to re-heat the last of his E's Oven leftovers and swat me away when I volunteered to act as his royal taster to make sure he wasn't being poisoned (again).

2016_Aug_A..eyblue_-_14.jpg

It was our last full day on island, so we set a brisk pace to make sure we could include everything we wanted to do.

large_2016_AUG_A..stswim2_-_1.jpg

As you can see.

As lunchtime drew near, we set off for Tropical Sunsets, where we knew they'd make us an off-the-menu guavaberry colada. Both the color and the taste of a guavaberry colada are a bit reminiscent of Pepto-Bismol, and Tropical Sunsets has comfy loungers, so we decided that this visit was actually part of Angel's treatment plan: He would take his "medicine" and spend the day resting.

2017_AXA_TS_-_5.jpg

2017_AXA_TS_-_8.jpg

2017_AXA_TS_-_13.jpg

Angel ordered a simple turkey club, while I decided that if I wasn't going to get another Ferryboat cheeseburger on this trip, then I was going to drown my sorrows in BBQ sauce.

2017_AXA_TS_-_16.jpg

2017_AXA_TS_-_14.jpg

large_2017_AXA_TS_-_15.jpg

2017_AXA_TS_-_18.jpg

Incredibly, even though Angel was feeling better than he had in days, he still managed to have a near brush with death, this time thanks to a stealthy toothpick hidden in his sandwich, which he almost swallowed.

2017_AXA_TS_-_17.jpg

2017_AXA_TS_-_9.jpg

The rest of the day passed much as the ones before it: Swim, rest, repeat.

large_2017_AXA_TS_-_12.jpg

2017_AXA_TS_-_10.jpg

large_2017_AXA_TS_-_6.jpg

I even managed to get some exercise, walking all the way down to Gwen's for one of her super-sized rum punches.

large_2017_AXA_TS_-_20.jpg

2017_AXA_TS_-_19.jpg

2017_AXA_TS_-_21.jpg

large_2017_AXA_TS_-_22.jpg

It was our final night on island, and we were going to Dolce Vita, come hell or high water or hospitalization.

large_2017_AXA_DolceV_-_8.jpg

2017_AXA_DolceV_-_7.jpg

It was Dolce Vita's last night before closing for the season, and while Angel had warned me that they would probably be out of many of their regular menu items, I was secretly hoping that in an effort to get rid of every single thing in the kitchen, we'd be asked to "pitch in" and devour plate after plate of gnocchi and lasagna and risotto until it was all gone.

large_2017_AXA_DolceV2_-_1.jpg

We settled in at our usual table (is there any bigger thrill than being able to say you have a "regular" table at Dolce Vita?!), then put in an order for two glasses of wine and the tuna tartare.

2017_AXA_DolceV_-_2.jpg

Angel was feeling better, but still not 100%, so he ordered a side of meatballs as his entrée. I've taught him well, y'all.

2017_AXA_DolceV_-_4.jpg

large_2017_AXA_DolceV_-_3.jpg

As it turns out, Angel was right about the menu, so I had to settle for the lobster pasta in pink sauce being served with shrimp instead. Oh, the sacrifices.

large_2017_AXA_DolceV_-_5.jpg

Our flight wasn't scheduled to leave until early afternoon, so the next morning we found time for one last swim at Shoal Bay before packing our bags.

large_2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_9.jpg

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_1.jpg

large_2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_8.jpg

2016_AUG_A..astswim_-_2.jpg

As we bobbed in the water and buried our feet in the powdery sand, I felt the evil tentacles of Stage 5 of Anguilla Vacation Grief, acceptance, begin to wrap themselves around me. The clock was ticking, and soon -- whether we accepted it or not -- we'd have to board the plane and head home. And so we made the most of our last few minutes.

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_3.jpg

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_7.jpg

large_2016_AUG_AXA_TGpareo2_-_1.jpg

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_2.jpg

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_5.jpg

large_2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_10.jpg

(Did you know there is actually a word for this? We can thank our German friends for torschlusspanik, which refers to that panicky sensation of time running out.)

When we arrived at the airport, we learned that our flight was delayed by an hour, giving us time for a quick lunch and postponing the acceptance process by another 60 minutes. The Roti Hut is just down the road, so it seemed like the perfect spot to grab a bite and still make it back to the airport in time for our flight.

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_15.jpg

large_2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_16.jpg

Now, I don't know if it's because I am dressed in street clothes, or because the breeze inexplicably dies down, or because the temperature somehow shoots up by 25 degrees, but every time we head to the airport after a trip to the tropics, it is always the hottest day of the entire trip, unbearably hot, and I invariably develop a bad case of THTDH ("The Heat is Too Damn Hot"). (Angel suspects that I fake overheating just to avoid carrying my own luggage. I don't, but I will keep that idea in my back pocket for when it's time to do laundry or take out the trash.) And so it was at the Roti Hut -- a place with less air circulation than a hermetically sealed space capsule -- that a most severe case of THTDH set in and I nearly passed out in a pool of my own sweat.

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_24.jpg

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_18.jpg

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_19.jpg

I fanned myself with the menu. Angel pursed his lips and blew cool air on me. Finally I gave up and chugged a bottle of Heineken, then ordered a second one to serve as a cold compress for my sweaty forehead.

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_17.jpg

Right as I was on the verge of heatstroke, the roti arrived and I managed to perk back up. That's because what Roti Hut lacks in ambiance and AC, it makes up for with the roti: They were soft, pillowy, just-spicy-enough, and loaded with perfectly fork-tender chicken and veggies.

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_20.jpg

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_21.jpg

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_22.jpg

large_2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_23.jpg

Too soon, it was time to head back to the airport. As we unloaded our bags from the trunk and bid farewell to our sand-covered rental car, I began to accept my fate and allowed Angel to drag me to the gate.

2016_AUG_AXA_sandycar_-_1.jpg

It wasn't easy, but chugging that Heinie at the Roti Hut definitely helped.

2017_AXA_ShoalRoti_-_14.jpg

Angel recovered from his stomach bug; I recovered from my heatstroke right after Angel carried my luggage into the airport; and soon it was on to the next trip!

A Sweet Return to Anguilla, Pt. 1: My Cheatin' Heart

Do you remember when Tiger Woods was married to the gorgeous Nordic goddess Elin Nordegren? She was stunning in her perfection, all tawny skin and baby-blonde hair and centerfold-worthy beach body. She bore him two equally stunning children, and even feigned interest in a sport so boring the players hire caddies to walk around with them and keep them awake. And then Woods cheated on her with a troupe of tramps sporting too little clothing and too much silicone, and everyone was left scratching their heads. What on earth was he thinking???

That's the best analogy I can come up with to explain why, after first discovering the island paradise of Anguilla back in 1997, we didn't just quit while we were ahead. We didn't accept perfection when it landed in our laps and, instead, like a fool who trades in a Bentley for a Buick, we flitted off to other islands, sure that something even better must be just another flight or ferry ride away.

It wasn't.

What we found instead were islands with so-so food, spotty electricity, and plastic wine glasses. What they lacked in modern conveniences, they made up for in spiders.

Some of them didn't even have ironing boards, for God's sake.

Anguilla, I'm sorry I cheated on you. You are Armani couture in a sea of saggy sweatpants; Dame Helen Mirren in a crowd of Kardashians. You are a Ferryboat cheeseburger in a passel of pink slimes. You are my everything.

large_2015_AXA_TayRedos_1.jpg

Our long-awaited reunion began during the 10-minute flight from St. Maarten. We cleared the island's lush green hills, then spent a few jumpy minutes over open water before Anguilla came into view. Flat, scrubby, and brown in spots . . . it was as breathtakingly beautiful as we remembered.

2015_AXA_plane_3.jpg

2015_AXA_plane_2.jpg

Anguilla is known for its luxury hotels, and on past visits we've stayed everywhere from the oceanfront suites at Cap Juluca and Frangipani to the villas at Arawak and Rendezvous Bay Hotel, with stops at Ferryboat and Carimar in between. On this visit, though, we decided to forego the hotel altogether and rent a villa.

large_2015_AXA_SweetRetstr_1.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_19.jpg

large_2015_AXA_Velv_09.jpg

Our first indication that we were going to love Sweet Return was the road leading up to it: An old-school dirt path so rocky and rut-filled that it prompted Ronnie Bryan to ask if perhaps there was another way up to the house, since the car we'd rented from him had just been painted.

large_2015_AXA_Velv_23.jpg

There was, but that path was even worse. And so the car rattled, our heads bobbled as if on springs, and our luggage took a beating . . . but there was no wiping the silly grins off our faces as we bounced along through the underbrush.

2014_SR_srpath_1.jpg

large_2014_SR_housepath_1.jpg

Perched high on Isaac's Hill, Sweet Return was bright and open, with a gentle breeze flowing through the numerous windows positioned to catch the cooling trade winds. The stylish main house consisted of a combined living and dining area overlooking the pool, bookended by two spacious master suites with enormous stone baths. (I am not even going to mention the fact that those bathrooms were bigger than our kitchen in NYC. Then again, I use my oven for shoe storage, so who am I to complain?)

large_2015_AXA_Velv_03.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_11.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_12.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_08.jpg

You noticed that ultra-luxurious household appliance on the right, yes? That's how we knew we were back where we belonged.

2015_AXA_Velv_24.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_28.jpg

In fact, that kind of attention to detail turned out to be our favorite thing about Sweet Return. Umbrellas conveniently lined up right next to the front door. Baskets filled with towels handily placed right next to the pool. Bins full of sunscreen, bug spray, and first aid items all neatly organized and labeled. (With typed labels. Swoon.) They even labeled the light switches. Light switches! Forget the pool and the view: You had me at the dimmer switch.

2015_AXA_Velv_01.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_07.jpg

How to top all of these thoughtful touches? With a kitchen map, that's how. Sure, it was nice not having to haul my own iron and ironing board to Anguilla, but knowing that someone took the time to make a map of the kitchen so I didn't have to open five different cabinets to find a water glass? That is the stuff OCDreams are made of.

2015_AXA_Velv_29.jpg

The house even had a small, detached studio apartment, which would provide the perfect escape if you happen to be traveling with the kind of people who do not appreciate a good kitchen map.

large_2015_AXA_Velv_17.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_26.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_22.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_21.jpg

Best of all, the property manager at Sweet Return, a lovely woman named Catherine, confessed to being a longtime reader of this blog, and as a welcome gift she went out of her way to track down a favorite wine that I'd previously written about.

2015_AXA_Velv_13.jpg

Oh, and a cheese platter so generously Tracey-sized that we knew the wine couldn't have been just a lucky guess.

2015_AXA_Velv_14.jpg

It had been a long morning of travel, and the beach was just a stone's throw away. The sparkling pool beckoned. We'd traveled in our swimsuits to avoid missing a single minute of sunshine. But that cheese plate wasn't going to eat itself, so we slid into chairs at the dining table and gobbled up half a pound of goat cheese instead.

large_2015_AXA_Velv_04.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_02.jpg

large_2015_AXA_Velv_10.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_25.jpg

Soon we were thirsty, and it was no accident that the villa was just across the street from CuisinArt. Nothing beats makeup sex when you patch things up with a lost love, but makeup mojitos run a close second.

2015_AXA_CuisiDrinks_12.jpg

large_2015_AXA_CuisiDrinks_02.jpg

The afternoon slipped into that golden hour when the beach has emptied but the sun still lingers, and we embraced it like a friend we hadn't seen in a long while.

large_2015_AXA_CuisiDrinks_06.jpg

2015_AXA_CuisiDrinks_05.jpg

large_2015_AXA_CuisiDrinks_07.jpg

2015_AXA_CuisiDrinks_09.jpg

2015_AXA_Velv_27.jpg

Okay, fine, we almost squeezed it to death. Like I said, it had been waayyy too long.

2015_AXA_CuisiDrinks_14.jpg

We were scheduled to spend nine nights on the island, but had approximately 42 restaurants on our list. If we were to make any headway, we were obviously going to have to double up. And so that evening, we set off for SandBar . . . and Dolce Vita. You know, in the interest of economy.

2015_AXA_SandBarrope_1.jpg

large_2015_AXA_SandBar_08.jpg

2015_AXA_SandBar_06.jpg

2015_AXA_SandBar_05.jpg

We arrived at SandBar just in time for sunset, settled in at a waterside table, and kicked things off with a round of SandBar's eponymous mango and rum concoctions.

2015_AXA_SandBar_10.jpg

2015_AXA_SandBar_01.jpg

2015_AXA_SandBar_03.jpg

2015_AXA_SandBar_04.jpg

large_2015_AXA_SandBar_02.jpg

We knew we'd be indulging in the divine pastas at Dolce Vita, so we stuck to the protein offerings at SandBar, sharing an order of the chicken satay with peanut sauce, along with the spicy pork tenderloin with chili-tamarind sauce.

2015_AXA_SandBar_12.jpg

2015_AXA_SandBar_11.jpg

2015_AXA_SandBar_15.jpg

large_2015_AXA_SandBar_17.jpg

Once the sun had set, we walked the short distance down the beach to Dolce Vita.

2015_AXA_SandBar_13.jpg

2015_AXA_SandBar_14.jpg

2015_AXA_SandBar_16.jpg

Dolce Vita, however, is not the kind of place where you can just show up. Preparations must be made. First, menus must be studied, past meals analyzed, and stomach capacity evaluated. Proper attire must be carefully chosen; billowy dresses for women and elastic-waist pants for men are preferred (potato sacks may be substituted in cooler weather). On the big day, breakfast is skipped and lunch entrees are kept on the light side to avoid spoiling dinner. (Hence, only half a pound of that goat cheese back at the villa.) You may whet the appetite with, say, some chicken skewers or spicy pork tenderloin, but anything more and you run the risk of having to leave behind an errant gnocchi or bite of lasagna.

2015_AXA_DV1_02.jpg

And you know Abbi checks.

We settled in to our "usual" corner table near the sand and ordered up two glasses of wine and Dolce Vita's heavenly tuna tartare.

2015_AXA_DV1_03.jpg

2015_AXA_DV1_04.jpg

2015_AXA_DV1_05.jpg

large_2015_AXA_DV1_09.jpg

Then it was on to the melty, light-as-air homemade lasagna for me, and the evening's pasta special -- Anguillian lobster and shimp in a fragrant, garlicky white wine, butter, and lemon sauce -- for Angel.

2015_AXA_DV1_07.jpg

large_2015_AXA_DV1_06.jpg

2015_AXA_DV1_10.jpg

Abbi was his usual charming self, and after a few glasses of wine it seemed like a good idea to pose for a silly photo, sticking our bellies out in homage to the incredible meal we'd just enjoyed.

2015_AXA_DV1_11.jpg

Well, at least Abbi stuck his out. Ours just look like that.

After dinner, we bumped along the road back to Sweet Return, a star-scattered sky lighting our way.

2015_AXA_SReve_2.jpg

large_2015_AXA_SReve_1.jpg

The hour was late, and it had been a long day of travel, but we somehow found the energy for a quick dip in the secluded pool before bed.

2015_AXA_SReve_3.jpg

large_2015_AXA_SReve_4.jpg

We'd been back on island less than 12 hours, and already we'd enjoyed frosty drinks, delicious tapas, and a log of goat cheese. We'd been welcomed like old friends at Sweet Return and Dolce Vita, and stuffed ourselves silly with lasagna and lobster. Now, as we sunk our travel-weary bodies into the water, we plotted the next day's adventures: Lunch at Ferryboat Inn, an afternoon swim at Rendezous Bay, and tacos and tequila at Picante.

2015_AXA_SReve_5.jpg

And then, at long last, we fell into bed, as visions of cheeseburgers danced in our heads.

A Sweet Return to Anguilla, Pt. 5: Revenge of the Herds

After a quick morning dip in the pool, it was off to Maunday's Bay for lunch at Cap Juluca.

large_2015_AXA_CapJ_23.jpg

One of the island's oldest and most beloved resorts, Cap greets visitors with simple Mexican-tiled paths and spare white Moorish architecture, offering little hint of the stunning beach just beyond.

Although Cap's beach is technically public, the cushy chaises are for hotel guests only (in past years, Angel's smile -- or a crisp $50 bill if the beach attendant wasn't female -- was enough to secure two loungers and an umbrella, but sadly not anymore). So we headed off to Mead's Bay for piña coladas and some shade at Blanchard's Beach Shack.

And, as it turned out, hordes of people.

large_2015_AXA_MeadsBay_14.jpg
Just look at them all!

Now, I live in New York City, and I know a crowd when I see one. And that day on Mead's, there was a crowd. We tried to enter the water, and there she was: A lady with the audacity to be floating almost within shouting distance on a noodle. We immediately made a break for the beach, but at that same moment, an older couple had the gall to pass by hand-in-hand. Practically close enough to say hello to us! What was this, Grand Central Station at rush hour?

Oh, the humanity!

Exasperated, we retreated to our loungers, only to find that someone had parked themselves on the lounger next to ours. Right beside! I'm telling you, it was like Times Square up in there.

The noise was deafening.

And so, we made a beeline for the bar at Blanchard's Beach Shack to order some frozen drinks . . .

2015_AXA_MeadsBay_22.jpg

. . . only to find that there was a line.

Sure, back home there's a waiting list for everything from delivery rooms to burial plots, but in Anguilla? It was just too much.

large_2015_AXA_MeadsBay_29.jpg
I've seen shorter lines at the post office on tax day!

We grabbed our drinks, left our stuff to the mercy of the multitudes on the beach, and sprinted away, down the beach to the little cove at Malliouhana.

There, we delighted in the tiny fish nipping at our ankles and reminisced about the Mead's Bay of yore.

Finally, as the day wound to a close, we were left in peace at long last.

That evening, we set off for the Viceroy's Sunset Lounge for you-know-what.

large_2015_AXA_Viceroy_35.jpg

Okay, fine, there was a sunset, too.

Can you believe this was our first visit to Viceroy? Well, except for a little stalking when they first opened.

2015_AXA_ViceroyBush_1.jpg

We'd of course heard that the Viceroy vibe was more Miami than Mead's, and that the crowd could be a little New York-y (which ranks just behind sun poisoning and shark bite as the last thing we want to deal with on vacation). But we found that the Viceroy struck a sophisticated, elegant tone, and though we'd probably never choose it over the privacy of a villa or smaller resort, it was the perfect spot for a tasty pre-dinner cocktail.

Though some of the interior décor seems a little dark (both literally and figuratively) given the surroundings, overall we loved the inventive use and rich textures of the wood, marble, granite, and other natural materials.

Though I have to draw the line at these creepy chairs.

One of several restaurants on the property, Cobà is perched on a bluff with views of both Meads and Barnes Bays.

Though the Viceroy is known for its sunsets, it's an even better spot for a Sunrise, which I ordered specifically because the menu said it came with "grapefruit cubes." As soon as I saw that, I immediately began pondering all the different ways molecular gastronomy could convert a grapefruit segment into a cube. Did they vaporize it? Anti-griddle it? Emulsify and then gelify it? My mind ran wild with the possibilities.

2015_AXA_Viceroy_17.jpg

Regrettably they did none of the above, though for $18, I think they should have at least attempted it. (Perhaps there'd been an unfortunate incident with a sous-vide machine?) But, cubes or no cubes, this was hands-down one of the best cocktails I've ever had, in Anguilla or anywhere else, and I'd happily fork over the dough for another Sunrise next time we are on island. (I won't pay $25 to rent a sunbed for the day, but I will happily spend that same amount for a single cocktail. Priorities!!)

2015_AXA_Viceroy2_4.jpg

When the sun finally dipped below the horizon, we headed off, once again, to the only place we deem worthy of a repeat dinner: Dolce Vita.

It was to be our last visit to DV on this trip, so we doubled up on the pastas to carry us through until next time.

Sadly, however, one thing was missing: Abbi was not there, which meant we wouldn't get a chance to say a proper good-bye.

But about halfway through dinner our beloved Pastafarian finally appeared, looking exhausted but nevertheless happy to see us. He later confided that he hadn't planned to come in at all that evening, but changed his mind when he saw our names on the reservations list.

I'll bet he says that to all the gluttons.
