As they were all passing through Burlington one August Saturday, we met them for brunch at Deep City, not far from Lake Champlain. We'd never been before so it was a new adventure for all of us. For me, biscuits and gravy are an obligatory order if they're on the menu. Wild Turkey let me try her Brioche Crispy French Toast, too. All were lovely, though the french toast would have been too sweet for a full order for me. Service was friendly and efficient. I'm always impressed when a waitress can smoothly handle a large party with multiple kids of varying ages.
Mostly it was a wonderful chance to catch up. Obviously, we all dread the idea of growing up to become our parents but it's delightful when you see it happening to the children of your friends. Both of their kids are clearly heirs to their parents' charming sense of humor. As our child was just a few days away from leaving for college, their oldest was just in the early stages of the search. I love the college search so I had tremendous fun hearing about their preferences.
A lovely brunch all around. Hopefully, we'll see them again before too long.
