Going Home

No coffee yet, "Home" by Marc Broussard on iTunes. We're in Amarillo and plan to be home tonight. I am too old for this... stuff.

I was the next to last one packed up and out of the hall after the show on Friday and I was still out by around 9:00. Went straight to the Monte Carlo and showered to transform for the bachelorette party. Dinner was at Olives in the Bellagio at 10:00 and we closed it down. Who knew you could actually make them turn up the lights in a restaurant in Vegas to get you to leave because they were closed!

The rest of the weekend (that's to say Saturday) was a blur of all the Starbucks coffee I could drink, hold 'em poker in the poker room (I lost, but since I had already lost my debit card at the convention center I didn't lose much). Saturday was both the Mayweather De La Hoya fight and the Kentucky Derby so Vegas was packed. We managed a last minute limo (well, an Expedition anyway) for the night in spite of the crowds and headed out at 6:00.

Dinner at Delmonico's was fabu and the Thunder From Down Under was beyond good. I understand some (all?) of the group went to the Olympic Gardens (or whatever) last time and it was a bit too much. The TFDU was... just right. Yum. There is a photo (an official one) that I plan to scan when I do the cruise pics and I'll put them all up together.

Hit the road at 6:00 am the following morning (that would be yesterday) and now you know the rest of the story. Of course it's only MT story. The rest of what happened in Vegas as I slept will stay in Vegas.

Delmonico's, one of Emeril Lagasse's restaurants in Vegas, serves spectacular steaks. How many were in your party? I ask because normally, the wait staff serves everyone all at the same time, so if you had a large party, I wonder where they got the personnel to deliver it all...
