Larry, who went bowling with us on Monday, told us about a Torrey Oaks group that gets together at Giovanni’s Restaurant on Main Street every Tuesday about 5 o’clock for Pizza, Etc. We had never been to Giovanni’s so decided to join them. And I'm glad we did. The Pizza was recommended, but Ken and I decided to split the Eggplant Parmesan which came with the soup and salad bar and we ordered a second salad bar. It was wonderful and just the right amount of food so we did not have to doggie bag any leftovers!!
This is the group of eleven at our table. There were as many or more of the group at another table, but we did not meet them.
One thing different about Giovanni's -- they invite you to bring your own bottle of wine to enjoy with your meal. Here Ken and I are enjoying a bottle of Burgendy that Sally and Stan gave us for Christmas.
The Burgundy was from Pahrump Valley Winery and it was delicious!! Pahrump Valley is located in Nevada, West of Vegas and a little East of Death Valley. It is probably best known as the home of the Chicken Ranch Brothel which was moved from Texas to Nevada some years ago. Stan and Sally toured the Brothel as well as the Vineyards when they were out there.
