Love the palms...
Oh my god. Can I please tell you about the best meal I've had in my life?? I don't know if it's the best in my whole LIFE - but it was pretty damn close.
I headed over to the Palms the other night to meet up with vMiamiDon and Mookie and the rest of the gang for dinner. I have to give credit where credit is due - Don picked the place and it was FANTASTIC!! We went to N9NE Steakhouse for one of the best meals I've had in my life. Let me just tell you what I ate. I had the surf and turf (filet mignon and lobster) - I also ordered a nice big plate of asparagus, mashed potatoes and I freakin ordered the lobster bisque for an appetizer. And - damn if I didn't eat just about ALL of it. I highly suggest that you eat there if you are ever in town. Don is such a sweetheart too - he treated me to dinner and I am very grateful. It's kinda like he's my brother now - trying to feed me a decent meal once in a while because I neglect the whole eating thing now and then.
Here's some random shots from dinner...
Oh, and the funniest thing is that we saw Todd Brunson at N9NE for dinner too. The last time Don and I went out to dinner we went to the TBones Steak house for dinner at the Red Rock and we saw Todd there that night too. He must eat a lot of steak or something.
Anyway, we all headed over to the poker room at the MGM after dinner and I was all ready to play - but then for some reason I got tired and I wasn't really feeling it - so I went and lost my ass off on wheel of fortune instead.
I have a new obsession now. I am SO OVER the penny slots. I'm done with Cashman and Lucky Lemmings and Lil Lucy because I always lose! It's not fun when you are losing by the way. Anyway, I found Keno at my local neighborhood restaurant and I am loving it. It's not the Keno that you have to put a ticket in for and wait for the numbers to come up - it's a slot machine instead. It's part of the draw poker machine that you always see at the bar. Let me just say this - I am doing very well!! I hope my keno streak continues.
My doggy Sydney is doing okay. Thanks for the warm wishes :) I haven't seen him cause he's in Maryland, but he made it through the surgery and as far as we can tell, he's not in any pain or anything so that's good!I might play in the mookie tonight. I haven't decided yet - but then again I could just drive to the casino and see him in person.
