After a long day of editing my thesis paper and working in the studio Forrest and I had dinner with Dan and Anna at ACRE around nine in the evening. We both live in the Old North Columbus neighborhood and ACRE is relatively new to the area. Forrest and I had been a few times before but we usually order the food to-go. This evening we decided to dine in and had a really nice time meeting Anna in person for the first time. It is an interesting process to learn about someone through a blog and then finally meet in person. We talked about bikes, food, jobs, the project, and what we had planned on bringing to the potluck dinner on Saturday. Its hard to believe the project is almost over. I am going to enjoy these next few days of shared meals.
This was Dan’s first time using the dishes at a restaurant. Since we were eating late into the evening and the restaurant was slow they were happy to plate the food on the dishes.
