When you stand around in a trade show booth talking to people for 10 hours a day and don’t have time for lunch, you would think you would be starving at the end of it. But, I wasn’t. I was really tired and think that wiped out the desire to eat.
After my daily naps, we did head out to dinner. If I had been alone, I probably would have stayed in the nap mode until daylight. But, my husband was with me and there are wonderful restaurants all over Las Vegas, so we rallied and went out later in the evening.
We dined the first night and the last night at the same place, StripSteak in the Mandalay Bay Hotel mega-complex. The restaurant is one of Michael Mina’s creations and obviously our original meal was so good that we went back despite a million other choices that we could have made.
We asked our waiter for a recommendation, and he suggested that we split a porterhouse steak. We went with that choice, and it was served sliced to make it easier to divide into two portions. With sides of a baked potato and creamed corn with jalapeno, which we also split, my husband enjoyed a point appropriate delicious fare.
We finished dinner about 11 p.m. that first evening and made a beeline back to bed knowing that we needed all the sleep we could get to be ready for day two of booth work. I think I was asleep before my head hit the pillow.
Talk to you soon.
