A great night out!

I went on a well needed "girl's night out" tonight. We went to a new place in our neighbourhood, not knowing much about the place beforehand. It turned out to be really, really nice. Nicely decorated, European food (no "cheese burger" in sight!) - and live music!

And of course - the big screen TVs showing sports...

What is it with Americans who can't enjoy food or a drink without close-ups of sweaty men? Is this the only way for American woman to get their husbands out of the house once in a while?

Anyway - it really was a nice place and the live music was absolutely great (we were actually almost thinking of hitting the floor dancing, but then thought better of it, after all, people were eating...).

When we left, we passed by the smokers, standing outside. No smoking in Californian bars or restaurants (or other public places for that matter). Being a non-smoker myself - I LOVE this. You can come home after having a meal in a restaurant - and not have to take a quick shower, trying to wash the smell of old ashtray away.

I think I can stand the big screen TVs as long as smoking is not allowed. You can turn your back to the TV but not hide from the smoke...

(While I've been here in the US, a non-smoking law came into effect in Stockholm as well - but big screen TVs usually is only found in real sports-bars).

I have to say, I love the "no-smoking in restaurants" law in California too!
