We dined at a very nice restaurant once again this evening. Tony's is an Italian restaurant located a few blocks away from the arch. We started off with penne pasta, scallops, and shrimp for appetizers. By the taste of the appetizers, I knew the main course was going to be delicious. For dinner I had beef and spinach stuffed ravioli with Tony's salad side. The salad had tomatoes, and salami, and was tossed in a vinaigrette dressing. For dessert I had a caramel ice cream pie which was a graham cracker crust topped with vanilla bean ice cream, meringue, and lots of caramel sauce.
Today was a great day. To end it, we took a stroll in the area where the arch is located. Ian pointed out to us that right across the river was actually an entire different state(Illinois). After attending the campus tour, information session, and having an interview with one of the chancellors I am looking into applying to Washington University. The campus has a lot of greenery that I love. The brick buildings and cobble stone walkways are such a change from California but it's nothing I couldn't get used to.
