Thursday I was in workshopes, so I went to the mall and tried Lobster Me. I thought, "When did lobster become a verb?" "Lobster me, Charlie!" Then I realized LOBSTER ME meant Lobster ME as in Maine. Oops! The meat was sweet, and the bread, which is flown in from Maine was amazing, though I confess I have never been to a real Maine lobster shack.
Friday I was in workshops all day, but I had time to run across the street to Caesar’s to Rao’s. Yes, RAO’S! I was so excited! I was a little sad they don’t have the red peppers at lunch.
I’ve been trying to be lo-carb on this trip so I could have a big splurge later, so I ordered the meatballs. They ARE world famous, and as big as softballs. The marinara sauce was so good, next time I will say to hell with it and get pasta.
After my last workshop, I waited at the bar to hear from my friend Eva. I tried the Queso Fundido, which was surprisingly good. Because 2 meatballs is actually not enough to eat all day.
Eva couldn’t make it, so I am unable to title a post “Eva Las Vegas.” I called Nick and went out with him and his girlfriend, Stacy. We went to their local Casino, Cannery Row and ate at Snaps restaurant for dinner. I ordered the safest thing to eat in Vegas – Prime Rib.
For a little excitement I ordered an avocado shake. Yes. Avocado. Shake. It was like a vanilla shake with a light avocado taste, very mild.
Since my last visit was so exciting, we decided to hit Serendipity 3 again. It was a long wait, and when we got our ice cream sundaes they were totally melted. I felt bad sending it back, but it was a goner.
