Almost there...

Oh weblog, how I've neglected you!

So the Great Breakfast Mission continued on Sunday, this time with Cyrus and Athena as cohorts. We headed to a place I'd been once before for dinner in Los Gatos about 2 and a half years ago when we first moved down. Sweet Pea's is a little tiny cafe with room for about 10 people inside and another 8 outside. They do both sweet and savory crepes, quiches, sandwiches, salads, and some other assorted breakfast items. Rick and I both had the Ham, Egg, and Cheese crepe, and I savored every mouthful. Next time I want to try their Veggie Scramble - one egg, potatoes, tomatoes, spinach, and cheddar topped with sour cream and salsa. Mmmm... We even treated ourselves to dessert after breakfast. Rick and I split a strawberries and cream crepe, and Athena and Cyrus split a Creme Brulee. This one was definitely a winner. The prices were great, the coffee was decent, the crepes were fabulous (and available in either original or buckwheat varieties), and there's a bunch of other things I want to try there. The only downside to it was that there wasn't enough seating space. There's only one table for four in the entire place, and a couple was sitting at it when we arrived. We ended up taking two tables for two outside.

After breakfast, we headed over to the Century 21 for a matinee of Spiderman. The Century 21 is huge. The line wrapped around the building when we arrived, but we still got decent seats. The theater seemed wholly unprepared for the start of the summer movie season though. Once they finally started letting us in, the concession lines stretched back to the doors of the theater. The movie ended up starting about 10 minutes late. They were just really understaffed for a sell-out crowd. And it's only another week or so til Star Wars. It's going to be a fun movie summer. Spidey was great. I've still got high hopes for Star Wars. And there's more coming that could be good as well - Scooby Doo, MIB 2, etc. Okay, sure, there's no Moulin Rouge or Amelie in there, but there's some good clean summer blockbuster kind of fun.
