Saturday Night Recap

IN THE NEWS: According to , "A woman who auctioned an old painting hoping to get a few thousand dollars toward her daughter's college tuition was stunned when the picture fetched $600,000. The picture sold Sunday by Clars Auction Gallery in Oakland, CA to an unnamed New York dealer and has no title or signature and staff of the gallery couldn't determine its origins. But the buzz in the art world is that someone thinks it's the lost work of a 17th-century Italian master, Pier Francesco Mola."
(How awesome is that! )

Okay. I know you're just dying to know how Saturday night went.


We. Had. A. Fantastic time! Truly. Everything about the night was so fun! And the Borgata is beautiful--not your typical Atlantic City casino at all. I would definitely go back to hang out.

Anyhew, first, we met up with our friends and went to Wolfgang Puck's and learned it was a 3 hour wait. Ouch! Okay, I know what you're thinking. Jennifer, didn't you make a reservation for a party of six, you doofus?

Uh, no.

In my own defense, when I checked out the website it said no reservations needed--or required--something like that. Ooops. It's been awhile since I've been out, I guess. Luckily, my hubby has connections. And our 3 hour wait turned into a ten minute wait--with no money exchanging hands.

What can I say? Even after almost 12 years of marriage, he STILL impresses me.

Dinner was delicious. I had a lobster club sandwich, which was so tasty I was sorry to see it end when I popped the last bite in my mouth. Then my hubby looks up and says, "Hey, there's Bobby Flay."

I look up and who is coming directly toward our table and then walks right by us, but none other than BOBBY FLAY. And if you ask who Bobby Flay is, I may have to smack you with a wet noodle. But then again, maybe I watch the Food Network too much.

For the record, he looks exactly as he does on TV. But what was curious was he was dressed in his white chef uniform and walking into Wolfgang Puck's. What was he doing, borrowing a cup of sugar?

Then of course, after dinner Brian Regan was hilarious. Even the guy who opened up for him was great. Brian even came out for an encore and someone shouted, "Poptarts!" So I got to see my favorite Poptart routine after all.

What a great way to end the night.

What did you do this weekend?

Girl, you are so crazy! I'm so glad you had a good time, especially since my weekend consisted of going to Home Depot, church and grocery shopping. :)

Glad you had a good time... and that you didn't have a three hour wait!

So you're a foodie, eh? I may have to pick your brain. The heroine in my current WIP is a foodie.
