I was off work on Tuesday and MiamiDon came home the same day. I made reservations for a nice steakhouse over at the MGM Grand called Craftsteak. They are running a special deal for MGM Grand employees through Sept. 15th. Anyway, at the last minute, we decided to take advantage of our 2 for 1 buffet coupons over at the Red Rock. That was a mistake!! I knew there was a reason I hadn't visited any buffets the whole time I've been living out here in Vegas - yuck!!!!! The food was just so so and the people were total white trash. All of the tables around us were filled with trash because the bussers/servers couldn't keep up with the traffic flowing in and out of that place. I can't figure out why people love buffets so freakin much. There is no way in hell I could ever eat my money's worth at one of those places so I'm glad we at least got the 2 for 1 deal. So, from now on I'm totally over the buffet thing - I'm not doing it anymore.
Earlier in the week I went out with some of the girls from work for Sushi. Oh lord! I've done the sushi thing before, but I usually just stick to the safe stuff like california rolls, shrimp and vegetable tempura or whatever teriyaki dish they have. But, at this place it's $21.00 all-u-can-eat for ladies after midnight, so I decided to be a little brave and try some new stuff. I had yellowtail - it was raw - but it was pretty good. I wasn't too grossed out. So, I stepped it up and I tried the eel. Okay - not terrible. Not great - but I lived through it. The next thing they stuck in my mouth without even telling me what it was and it was NASTY!
It was called uni (short for sea urchin). Oh my god. It was yellow and slimy and gross and I'm NEVER eating it again. At least now I know what it looks like so they won't be able to force feed me that crap next time.
Well, I gotta head to work in a few minutes. I haven't played any poker at all in the past few weeks. Except of course draw poker. I hit two four of a kinds the other day at the MGM after work and I cashed out for about $90.00. I wish it was that easy when I play live.
