184: Dinner at the Terrace

Getting a Christmas present for my husband Alex Thaub -- or indeed many people in Second Life -- can be difficult. Fashions move very quickly and generally speaking, if you see something while you're out and about, it's easy and inexpensive to buy. So for someone special, what you generally need to do is provide an experience and not merely an object.
  We've always liked The Terrace Lounge and Grille 
Restaurant, run by our friend Jorden Andrew. Well, part of it is sentimental, since this is where I popped the question way back when. But the larger part of it is that Jorden and his crew behind the scenes have figured out how to give people an experience that is like real life, but takes advantage of everything that is unique about SL.
  Our dinner the other night took place at the "Winter Cottage in the Woods". The basis of this is the dining experience, which takes place in a beautiful little
outdoor pavilion; as always, perfect service by Jorden himself, of a four course meal that I would have been happy to order in real life. (I'm a bit of a foodie, and all I can say is, so is whoever creates these menus.) And after the meal, we spent time exploring the interesting environment that The Terrace folks have created for your amusement. There's a sleigh ride, a skating rink, a bath house, and a beautifully decorated little cottage with ... let's just say with the animations that romantic adults might
expect to find.
  Of course the Winter Cottage is not the only environment they have to offer; there are five or six different dining experiences and a couple of very unusual offerings that include a dude ranch weekend (!) and a place to take the kids on their rez-days. We recommend it highly and you should check out what they have to offer! Use the link above to see their web pages, where you'll get a very good idea of the complete range of experiences; use this 
SLURL to get to the entry point; or contact Jorden Andrew in-world.
