after running around in the coldest day of the winter (3ºF with windchill) to shuttle our cat to the vet and back, we decided to have our anniversary tapas dinner nearby at olea (happy hour ftw!!) - we pretty much got what we got last time, but with some extras for the special occasion. some sangria for me (!!) and beer for m, fried fish fingers with spicy aïoli, "romanesca" dip (tomato, red bell pepper, etc) with whole wheat pita, celery & peashoot salad, meatballs with feta and quince paste (i think?), and spanish pitza (topped with manchego, quince paste, sea salt, herbs). they forgot one of the dishes (pitza) so gave us another round of fish sticks on the house, which, as it turns out, we didn't need.
we were so stuffed by the time the pitza arrived that we barely finished everything - but we did! - and waddled back home like two piglets.
