VILLA MARIA FRONT ENTRANCE

Dinner at My Favorite Place (that's the name of the joint); 1500 Old Butler Road; New Castle, PA. The dinner was good, but I ordered veal with a cream sauce which they broke when cooking. It tasted good, but didn't look too thrilling. I'll be somewhat reluctant to return.

Breakfast at LJ's; 124 N Main St; Zelie. It's a good restaurant.
Then down the street to Beecher's Gelato & Gormet Coffee for Larry to get his $3 cup of coffee. Beecher's coffee is excellent!
