Server: ...and another appetizer special, sweet potato gnocchi, in a sage butter sauce, with roasted garlic, and finished with asiago cheese.
Us: We'll have some of that...
Me: ...and I'll be ordering from the special pasta menu--carbonara.
Server: ...and for your salad?
Me: [puzzled. Please to explain?]
Server: I don't know if you knew this, but since tonight is special pasta night, you also get a salad, like a dinner salad? or a Caesar?
The historian: I'll have the puttanesca. With the dinner salad, and bleu cheese.
Server: So, with those salads, do you still want the gnocchi?
Server: And how about bread?
