We ended up splitting up and four of us went to a small Turkish restaurant Konak Meze and continued the conversation (books, The Martian, hard SF, children’s movies).

I finished up the night with Turkish coffee and Turkish delight that was so good, I would have sold my family to the White Witch for more.
