    Yes, we’ve been a few times. I like their deviled eggs! The same restaurant group also opened Chica, here at the Venetian. It’s a Latin influenced menu and quite good!

    So... forgot to tell you that my obnoxious side came out yesterday. We decided to try the Smith and Wollensky that just opened. I asked for a wine list and they presented me with an iPad programmed with their list. I absolutely hate it when restaurants do this. It may help them to monitor their inventory but it takes forever to make a choice. Ended up telling the server that I really hated their iPad and it was annoying! He was professional but said, yea, the whole technology thing. No, it’s the fact that it takes forever! He then Very kindly turned the menu over to show the wine list!! Seriously why not tell us that to begin with! Anyhow I hate when I let the obnoxiousness out so I did apologize!

    The food was good, although no wow factor except for the bread which was amazing. We always charge meals to the room which are theN comped. Unfortunately they weren’t set up for chargeback. That took a chunk out of the gambling budget

    we were handed tablets a few weeks ago at a fine dining place at Disney Springs.
    we had never used tablets before for the full menu.
    I was not sure if I liked the concept.

    were you able to get a receipt to pass in to your casino host for reimbursement?

    I doubt your obnoxious side is horrible.
    you are pretty easy going and kind...however maybe in your mind you were "obnoxious", but I bet you really weren't.

    No, I was obnoxious. The server was funny though because he said he was from New York and understood the East Coast attitude!!!

    Back to the room for a break. The birthday gods must have over ruled the casino gods as the slots were much kinder today! It’s been a nice birthday. Pool in the morning while it was still cooler; 80’s compared to 107 now. Lunch at my favorite pizza spot, Grimaldi’s. It’s a New York chain with amazing pizza and friendly staff. We always kid with them that they should set up a place in Boston.

    Spent a few hours in the casino and enjoyed an expresso martini. Also stopped at Carlos Bake Shop (cake boss) to get lobster tails for back in the room. Now that we both have our sugars up it’s time to head back to the casino!!
