Had a burger and fries for lunch with that Chill. Later I wanted to try a different cocktail (after all, I have to do some advance taste testing for Priscilla) so Joseul suggested a Manchito. Okay, I'm game. It's nothing more than that darn frozen mojito with some mango puree thrown in! Double yuck but I "forced" it down. Heehee.
    It turned very windy and is now pretty overcast. Still better than Connecticut!
    Back up to room to shower, relax and fill you all in. Dinner at Chophouse tonight for their almond crusted grouper. I've been thinking about it for two years! Asked to sit in Harold's section if he's working tonight. No more drink experiments. I'm sticking with my favorite - Tito's Cosmo (or two).
    Priscilla arrives around lunchtime tomorrow. Later peeps!

    Joseul is on the bar? Good for him. He’s a hard worker. Is Magaly still working at Pega Pega? She was really good about making nonalcoholic beverages for Tom. Enjoy your meal at Chophouse!!

    It’s funny how we all get to know the people at Manchebo. They really are a good group.

    Have to agree Stephen is great. They are a wonderful group of people and I made sure to tell Edgar (manager) at the cocktail party. Funny but nice thing at dinner last night at Ike's. Gikay took my drink order and when he came back he said how nice it was to see me again. I admitted i didn't remember him until he said he remembered I'd been there two years ago and pointed to the table where I sat! If not for the mask, I probably would have remembered him!

    Well, to be honest while the grouper and Cosmo were great, the service was not. Harold was working a big group in the garden. My server was very slow and seemed somewhat uninterested. Off night. Won't hold it against them!

    Patti and I always noted how many folks remembered us..... it's always amazing! Such a great staff throughout the property! Harold was working the garden the night we dined at chophouse. The garden was quite nice!
