AC Babeee!

Friday night Cathi, Lea and I went on down to Atlantic City. There was knitting in the car on the way. My Trekking sock - which while it has gone to many, many hiking destinations - it has never come out of the bag. Poor thing keeps getting left in the car - at least it gets out of the house though!

We went to Wolfgang Pucks Grill to eat. BEST BURGER EVER!!! Let me tell you about fancy restaurants - the food may be AMAZING but the rest - not so much! When we made reservations we checked out the menu and found stuff to our liking (omg good burger) and made sure to ask the person on the phone about the restaurant/cafe issue and would we be able to order from both menus - "sure no problem" - moron. We're seated in the restaurant with the fancy plates & whatnot - given a menu with a bunch of fancy dishes (none of which sounded even a little yummy to me - I don't do seafood) and asked the waiter "um... what about the sandwiches, pizzas and stuff?" "Oh" says the waiter "you have to sit in the cafe for that menu" which was FIVE FEET AWAY!!" WHAT? WHY? Does five feet make that much of a difference? Ya know what he said to me? He said "yea I asked them about that when I got hired, I told them it was a dumb idea - and I'll tell them again when I quit!" Ha! Guess Wolfy's aint the best place to work - but did I mention that I had the best burger of my entire life?? Yea go there - get a burger - to go.

Did a bit of gambling - Cathi won money! Exactly how much is unclear. She had 35 dollars in the "winnings" pocket. All winnings must go in this pocket not to be touched. I think this is a great idea - however this is before I realize she keeps pulling money from her purse to keep gambling. Why this makes sense I have no idea - I suppose it's nicer to go home thinking - hey I won 35 bucks! Then "Crap I lost 50." No matter how much money came out of the purse - it was "I won 35 bucks!!" all night. Luv you Cathi!! Me - gambling makes me ill so I don't really do it. I can count on one hand the number of times I've been to AC in my lifetime - and 2 of the 3 were in the last two months isn't that odd? I did manage to slip 5 bucks into a slot machine and got back 10 so I did good - it's not as much fun anymore though because there is NO MONEY! What the hell is up with that? I want a bucket full of quarters not some stupid ticket!!!

So the reason we went to AC?? Other than a girls night on the town of course -we went to see the Foo Fighters concert at the Borgata. Now when I got asked to go to this concert I said sure I know some of their stuff - couldn't for the life of me think of one single song they did - not one. Get to the concert - turns out I knew pretty much all of it - which of course makes it a much better show! That just goes to show you the said state of radio today - I LUV this band - if I had know that it was them doing all these songs that I really dig I would totally have at least one of their albums. Ah well - at least I'll be getting some of their stuff into my collection now. Oh and check out how close we were! Cathi & Lea - you guys ROCK thanks so much for taking me!!

**I have lots of pictures to go with this post - but blogger isn't cooperating so I'll edit it later to add them.

Hee hee...AC! And all the time I though you were excited about Air Conditioning. It has been hot, lately. I agree with you about gambling. If I don't win anything in the first five minutes, I stop. It sounds like you had a fun trip!
Funny how just hearing the coins drop is part of the excitement of winning! Glad you had such a fun time.
Sounds like fun! Blogger is a pain in the @ss when it comes to uploading photos!
