Last Dinner

The other day I was craving squash blossoms.  I have never heard of them before until I dined at Trenza.  Unfortunately, this restaurant closed its doors in July 2014.  Here was my original post about that last meal there: 

"Tonight was very bitter sweet.  The MsIndependent Ladies and I had dinner at Trenza, our last dinner, for it was their final night being open to the public before shutting the doors for good.  Tears. This restaurant has welcomed several of our MeetUps in the last months, including a Fashion Brunch and a Chef's Table event.  The food and the staff were always great, but I understand that Houston is a tough market for food businesses and I wish the Chef, Susie Jimenez, well in her future endeavors." 

Sampler: Ceviche Del Mar, Scallops, and Red Snapper
Squash Blossoms
Lamb Samosas
Planet of the Apes

But the night did not end there; after dinner we drove over to Studio Movie Grille at CityCentre and saw Dawn of The Planet of the Apes...one thing you must know is that I LOVE PLANET OF THE APES!  Don't challenge me on any of these movies!

If you saw this first movie with James Franco, then you will appreciate this sequel, the first is still better, but I understood how the story line needed to proceed for the plot to be interesting.  If you watched the original Planet of the Apes movie which debuted in 1968...not the 2001 remake with Mark Wahlberg, which was good, but hard to follow and detached from original story line...then you can gather the significant purpose of the Rise of the Plant of the Apes movie in 2010; it had to begin somewhere with someone.  

I am presuming their will be another movie following this, possibly a depiction of Apes forming their own working civilizations and humans becoming the primal creatures....maybe leading back into the original story lines....hmmmm.
