Friday night, in @ 7:00 p.m. Out at 01:00 Saturday morning. Not nearly as crowded as it has been as of late, which I attribute to the annual - but never too soon - migration of the snowbirds back to the land of socks and sweaters. The Hard Rock Cafe has really whittled down the menu. Still some good food, but a lot of the favorites have disappeared. I think they may be cutting down on what's available as more restaurants are on the agenda. And for those of you playing along at home, the correct answer is: bankroll in @ $300, bankroll out @ $1,100. Gaming: some slot machine my wife likes. The old 'your-turn-my-turn routine', while we discussed that article about the guy having to forfeit his winnings because someone else 'pushed the button'. We agreed that whoever put money in the machine (and obviously the players card) constitutes the player, even if the other person is taking turns. Though I harbor no illusions we'll be faced with that, as we all know what the good book says: the big cards giveth, and the small cards taketh away.
