Dyslexia and Fine Dining
I’m finally back into the swing of things. Or, well, I will be come noon when I have to go to work for 9 hours. The past week flew by entirely too fast. For any new readers, and even those who just might not know yet, I got married last Saturday, August 7th. Feel free to send any gifts, checks or money orders my way. 🙂 lol, no, i’m just kidding. But if you insist, don’t hesitate. Since I’ve been away for a week, I figured I’d update you all on a day-by-day account of how things went.
On Sunday, we left for Atlantic City and started our honeymoon off on a good foot. We drove the whole 2+ hours without the radio on, just talking about everything and anything. It was probably the best car ride we’ve had in years. I love car rides like that. About 3/4 of the way there theres this guy in front of us with his left turn signal on…but he’s in the far left lane and if he would’ve turned left he would’ve ended up in a ditch. Good thing he ended up switching into the right lane though. I mean seriously, can a person be that dyslexic? If so, it’s probably not safe for them to be driving on the parkway.
Sunday night, after checking into an Econolodge, located conveniently across from the Tropicana Casino and Resort, we headed over to the Casino and got a bite to eat. We ended up eating a lovely restaurant called Cuba Libre. If you’re ever near one of these restaurants, there’s not many, I highly suggest dining there. It was well worth the $100 we dropped on our first night. We opted for their special “15 Tastes of Cuba”, which was a collection of their signature Cuban dishes including your appetizer, entrée, and dessert.
We paired that with a bottle of wine, Nimbus(sauvignon blanc) from Vino Casablanca. Now that I did a little research on it, I’m kinda disappointed that the bottle was marked up to $30. If you buy it online or in stores, it’s ranges from 10-13 dollars per bottle. It was very good though.
We ended up gambling for a few hours and retired around 1:30am. Now, on our way back to our hotel room, it was about a 5 minute walk, we came across 3 different hookers(call girls, etc. call them what you will) turning tricks right outside our hotel basically. Never thought I’d see it happen in AC.
All in all, it was a wonderful first night of our honeymoon.
