Sunday night, dinner with the boy, I'm not in the mood for ethnic or fast food, there's still dozens of good restaurants we haven't tried...

A beautiful evening, we settle on the River Cafe. 

The best patio in the city, bar none. The food, expensive, modern portions, no one ever got fat eating well in Calgary. Well done and fashionable, everything portioned to ensure that you easily found room for both appetizers, entrees and dessert. Pleasant service, a great spot to people watch, enjoy a glass of wine, and the boy wishes that he could afford to take a date here, but at the moment, college and all, it's a bit out of his league. This is a good thing, some things have to be earned to be appreciated, and I assure him that I will pay for the date, but it's gotta be with the right girl, you don't take everyone here or it will lose all value ...
