Dinner with Karen the other night. We went to my favorite fall spot: the counter at Musso and Franks.Karen had never been so we went and had a nice night. I always snag a seat by the grill and watch the chef cook the chops brought over by the waiters and sip my vodka martini. The grill gives off a nice warm heat. I always order the pounded steak with gravy and lyonaise potatoes. One sip of that drink and all is right with the world. I can almost accept Cal's crushing defeat at the hands of Stanford....... Almost.
