February 2004 - Freehold Country Inn
6.94 - 7.5, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 6 

Maybe it was the cold, miserable month, or maybe the whole winter that spawned the suggestion of staying close to home for this month’s dining.  Or maybe it’s because we have one of (I believe) the best restaurants around within just a few miles of all of our homes.  Or maybe it’s just good to stay close to home and give the locals our business occasionally (per Don).  Any one or all of those reasons is reason enough to dine at the Freehold Country Inn.  It’s also a great incentive to get out of the house on a dark cold night.  The editor can not remember at whose house this evening started (maybe it was ours).  I do remember however, that the evening included the expected wonderful meals and service that we all have come to expect at the “ Inn ”.
    The Up Side -  The food, the service, the desserts, the cocktails… what else is there???
    The Down Side – Our poor Deb T. had one of her migraines and all I can say is it must have been a doosie, because she didn’t even eat her favorite, scallops.  Oh dear,  I hope she felt better the next day to enjoy the doggie bag!!!
