Wickedly Good New Year!

ImageChef.com - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and moreI just had to share my wonderful New Years Eve.  For Christmas one of my sons bought tickets for the two of us to go to see the play Wicked at the Detroit Opera House on New Years Eve.  I was thrilled with the gift and with his being willing to give up a wild party night with his friends to spend the evening with his mom.

 

We arrived in Detroit with plenty of time to eat and gamble a bit before the performance.  I love greek food, so we choose the Greektown Casino, played the slots for a while and then had a fabulous dinner at the Pegasus Taverna.  Not being able to pick one item, they have a sampler plate, starting with a fresh Greek salad and then a plate piled with lamp chops, spinach pie, moussaka, stuffed grape leaves, I had plenty to bring home for dinner the next day.  We also had the required opa! cheese to spread over their thick slices of homemade bread.

Afterwards we headed over to the Opera House, I had never been before and was anxious to see it after reading about the wonderful restoration work that had turned it into a city jewel.  The whole atmosphere downtown was sparkling with the holiday spirit with the Christmas lights still on, everyone was dressed up and excited, my son came away saying he would love to move to downtown Detroit.  I don't know if I like that idea, but the city was delightful that night.  The play was excellent, I read the book years ago and was interested to see how they would adapt such a long story to the stage.  The sets and costumes were just spectacular.

The New Year hit as we were driving home together.  I honestly told him that this New Years Eve was the best one I have ever spent and he told me that he felt the same way.  How great is that for a mom to hear, I had worried he might regret giving up bringing in the New Year with his friends and instead he enjoyed our time just as much as I did.   What a great start to 2009.
