I got a surprising text message from out of the blue early Sunday morning from my previous boss. I don't remember if I told you guys this, but when I gave my notice at my last job, my boss (the president of the company) gave his notice three days later. Wow - I think I made a good move right?
So, he's been working hard the past few months on opening a new restaurant called Vox and the grand opening is coming up this week.
He sends me a text message today inviting me to dinner, they are doing a moc up, which is a trial run so that they can figure out where their weaknesses are and improve upon them before the grand opening. Whenever you attend a moc up, you get to dine for free and they ask of you is that you leave constructive criticism before you head out the door and as always you tip your waiter.
So, I called a few girls - it wasn't hard to find people who wanted a free meal and we headed over to Henderson.
The new restaurant is called Vox, it's a wine lounge and tapas restaurant, they had a live jazz band, the decor was top notch, the staff was very green, but eager to learn, the presentation of the food was fantastic and the taste was out of the this world. Like any new restaurant, they have some areas to work on, but for the most part I had a very pleasant experience.

It was really awesome to see my boss outside of "work" and I'm reallyh flattered that he thought to invite me. I have a history of burning bridges and it is such a great feeling to walk away from a job on good terms and stay in contact with all of my co-workers after I left. This is probably the kind of stuff all your normal people learned a long time ago - don't burn your bridges. It's a no-brainer, but it's all new to me, and I'm glad I'm finally catching on.
I went to the MGM Saturday night and played for about 6 hours. So much fun! I'm dying to get back over there and play again. I'm contemplating going over there again tomorrow night after work.
I brought my new sweatshirt to the poker room because it always gets cold, after about an hour I put that baby on and damn it was so comfortable and SOOO warm. What a lifesaver. Thanks Armijn!!!!!
I'll have a nice writeup on the poker later this week.
