    It seems to be consistently called a Service Charge on the receipt.

    Mathew’s also collects it during their happy hour.

    This is a topic that rears its head every so often...if we want to discuss the service charge added in OR appropriate tipping for a buffet, feel free to start a thread.

    So we’re currently at the Ritz Casino and I’m watching the snow come down on the camera in our front yard. Another 5 inches forecasted tonight. Isn’t technology great. I can watch our front yard suffer from afar, while basting in the sunshine. I think I have an illness

    lol. I think I might have the same illness as you. When we are there I do the same thing and look for my neighbors FB posts for pictures.
    I was watching the news at noon today and they showed your general area. Beautiful, but not fun. You are in the right place now! I ran errands this morning-50 degrees when I left the house at 10:15 and 38 when I returned home at 11:50.

    I can't even put up a ticker it's so depressingly far away... 161 days. So I'll live vicariously through yours and others trip reports till I can get there. And thanks again for sharing your trip!

    Tuesday Day 14:

    Today we went to the Do It Center to pick up a few things for the condo and then headed to Price Smart. We took the new highway to and came back through downtown, as there were no ships in port. We’ve concluded that the highway will save you time if the ships are in and if there are none it’s the same or a little quicker through downtown.

    Came back to the condo and sat poolside for awhile and had a couple of beverages.

    Tonight, was movie night, so we changed and headed out for a flick.

    After the movie we headed over to Fireson Brewing to check it out. We circled around the parking lots for awhile before a spot opened, as the area was very crowded. We should have left our car parked at the Mall and walked over. We walked in the bar and the bartender told us that they were out of their IPA until Friday and only had the Stout, which is not my favorite, so we left.

    Drove up to the Ritz to satisfy the wife’s fix at the casino. We stayed for a couple hours and had a couple of beverages. The wife thinks she walked out even or maybe down little. We’ll take that as a win.

    It was getting late for us old people, so we headed back home and crashed.

    enjoying every word!

    could you tell me what you and your bride had for dinner the 2nd visit @ the Fish House?
    I recognize the lobster tail, but that is all I can identify.
    What were the veggies?
    My mouth is watering and I do not even know what it was.

    The other main dish was grilled chicken. We both had sauteed mushrooms and onions, cole slaw and garlic sauce. The garlic sauce was amazing.
