The Keg ... then "Rock of Ages"

For our anniversary, Sister Sarah and her husband, Joey, gave us a gift certificate for The Keg. We used it tonight.

Gord started with Lobster Gratiné (oven-baked lobster meat with garlic, herbs and melted Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses).

He thought it was okay (I'm not a fan of seafood).

My entrée was prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes.

It was good and I ate it all!

Gord had Creole Chicken (grilled chicken topped with shrimp and scallops sautéed in Creole seasonings).

He thought it was good!

We mentioned to our server that we were celebrating our anniversary and he surprised us with a piece of the Billy Miner Pie (mocha ice cream on a chocolate crust with hot fudge, caramel and almonds).

We were both full so just had a couple bites.

And here we are!

We had tickets to see Rock of Ages for this evening.

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small town girl met a big city rocker and in LA’s most famous rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the 80s. It’s Rock of Ages, an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and many more. Don’t miss this awesomely good time about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on!

I had seen it in May with my pal, Shawna, and had enjoyed it so much that I wanted to see it again. We were in the fifth row, right in the middle. Great seats!

It was fabulous the second time around! If you get a chance, go see it!

Happy Anniversary :) Looks like you had a great time. The Keg was, and still is, one of my favorite restaurants. Excellent choice with the prime rib. :)
