So much so that she had to have a yabadabadushi shirt...! Started with Firecracker which was a spicy shrimp cocktail in a hot aioli and then I had schnitzel and she had Parmesan Crusted Grouper and loved it.... so much food I couldn't finish and passed on dessert which was part of the early bird special. Great restaurant and fun décor. Service was especially noteworthy in that we were constantly being checked on and all of the servers were genuinely concerned that we were happy.

    Walked over to the Radisson Casino after dinner and DW waited in the lobby while I cashed out a few dozen left over dollars in my player's account. Doubt they'll be good too much longer with the change of ownership.

    Had a really interesting cab ride back to the AM after dinner. It was like being in the James Bond movie "Live and Let Die"........ The taxi was a 27 YO Continental with the upholstery totally done in a leopard print and really looked like a 'pimp mobile'..... the driver introduced himself as Honey and looked like he coulda been a driver in the chase scene when Roger Moore's driver gets a dart in the neck on the parkway! I don't think any darts were discharged out the sides of the rear view mirrors.... but it really was spooky...! I'm sure some of you folks have seen this cab.

    Got DW back to the room and walked up to the Glitz casino and stayed until after 2. It was a very productive night at blackjack and also at video poker..... no big jackpots, but some really nice walk away money from a coupla tables and a machine. Not in the black for the trip yet.... maybe later.

    Today was our last day on the beach and is always somewhat melancholy... Tonight Screaming Eagle for our last dinner.

    I didn't know that Barney's had t-shirts! Guess we'll need to have dinner there one night on our November trip. How funny about the taxi driver. Would have loved to see a photo!!

    Good luck at the casino tonight. Hope the Blackjack tables are good to you!

    THanks for all your reports CP felt like I was with you. Sounds like you took good care of your girl she is very lucky! Safe travels home, maybe you will get that leopard taxi again (just kidding)! Start planning your next trip asap!!! That yabada shirt sounds cool would love to see a picture of it. Enjoy your trip is not over yet..

    Thanks for bringing us along with you. I am glad your wife liked Barneys parm grouper, it's definitely one of my favorites. So do you think you will go back to Palm Beach in the future, or does Eagle have you completely converted over?
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Really think I'm done with Palm Beach..... I love Eagle Beach and in spite of some negatives for me......THE BEACH TRUMPS ALL....!!! And I will endure my 'little inconveniences' for the beach because I go to Aruba to enjoy the beach!
