Over the weekend I went to the Mandalay Bay to check out the pool - pretty nice place, but VERY crowded. The cool thing about that place is that they have an actual wave pool and a sandy beach. It's the closest thing in the desert that I've found that reminds me of laying on the beach in Delray or Fort Lauderdale. With the exception that there are black jack tables all around.
So, this is what the pool looks like without all the people and without all the chairs crammed in. Very pretty right?
Well, in actuality, it's a madhouse, chairs all over the place. I managed to squeeze into the one lone chair I found at one of the side pools, off in a corner, still very nice, but I really have to start leaving the house earlier if I want to score a prime seat at the main pool. Every saturday morning I am amazed when I get to the pool at like 10:30 a.m. and all the chairs are gone. I should know better by now.
This is the pool I was laying at...
Saturday was also my sponsor, Lisa's anniversary. No, not her wedding anniversary, it was the anniversary of her 23rd year clean - no drugs and no alcohol. So, we went to this place in The District called King's Fish House. It was pretty good. They actually had a nice variety of food. I had crabcakes for an appetizer and then a crunchy roll (sushi) for my main course. I love seafood! I was pretty impressed with the crabcakes. They weren't as good as Maryland crab cakes, but the had a nice flavor.
Lisa's the one at the head of the table and all of the other girls are the ones that she sponsors. She also has 6 kids. Busy lady huh?
Anwyay, it was really fun.
I meant to tell you guys that I saw Halloween a few weeks ago. I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you like scary movies, check it out.
