next, we had a most amazing dinner at il farro caffe tratioria- a little itallian joint by the newport pier. it was soooo good. i can't pronounce or remember what i ordered but it was so good., it was some great pasta with some great stuff inside. then it was smothered in three kinds of sauce- red sauce on the top third, cheesy white in between the first and last, and a creamy pesto for the bottom layer. it was good. enough said.
after dinner, we rode to the store to get some gum so that the people sitting next to us did not have to smell the garlic that we reeked of and rode on to the main event. the lido theater is super cool, with it's old school ticket booth out front, black lights and two levels of seating, it's the best way to watch a surf video by far. surf stoked fans, a huge screen and ray barbee and the matson 2 jammin on the stage before the show began just made it that much more fun!
