Spadaro


I went to Spadaro in Port Chester today.  The waiter was friendly and the food is nice.  The mozzarella was a good starter.  My grilled chicken was done nicely.  The meal was a decent price too.

Bistro Francais


We grabbed some lunch at Bistro Francais in Georgetown.  The place seems pretty busy.  I liked the bread, gazpacho and spanish style rice.  Not sure why a french restaurant has spanish style rice, but I liked it anyway.

Rosie O’Grady


We popped into Rosy O’Grady for lunch.   The French Onion soup was not great.  Too much cheese if you ask me.  The salmon and tilapia po’boy were fine.

Another trip to Wicked Spoon


We couldn’t pass up another trip to the Wicked Spoon.  The weekday price is cheaper and there is less food selection, but I think its still a pretty good deal.

Lobsicle


This place had the lobster ice cream.  Doesn’t look like it did well.  The new thing is lobsicle.  I guess if its good enough for a hot dog, its good enough for a lobster.

Blackjack entertainment


The Cosmopolitan has pole dancing behind the blackjack tables.  I am not sure if it makes the casino any more money.  But the atmosphere does seem a bit more lively.

Mastro’s Ocean Club


We went to Ocean Club for dinner.  The steak and seafood is very nice.  The dessert is also awesome.  Although very nice, if I compare side by side to the Palm, I think the Palm is better.

I found out that my son can’t wait to be a dad some day. Seems the reason he wants to be a dad is so that he can have some one to boss around. Nice.
