Was to play Shadow Creek yesterday but they punched the greens so I gotta go back and try again next week. Food: Mesquite is a culinary wasteland. Wasteland. The Painted Pony in St. Geo is outstanding. So’s the Blue Bunny ice cream joint. Peppermill is unchanged from our last couple tries – overpriced and down-the-tube. Wynn’s dinner and Sunday brunch buffets aren’t really all that special. Then again, I don’t “get” buffets. Carmel Room at Rampart bites … salt and overcooking appear to be the keys to that kitchen. Mon Ami Gabi could be the best steak deal in town. Café Bellagio is WAY overpriced but the noodle place rocks. Second trip to Spiedini in a couple weeks and the recommendation banner still flies high. Gambling. Terri kicked ass playing DDB VP. Thankfully. I kept feeding Bens, she kept handing ‘em to me. Love that four-pack of FP machines at Wynn.
