faye got the gelato desert; she didn't like the profiteroles;  she also didn't like the cranberry sauce in her entree; too much orange flavor for her

I got the pie "duo"; pumpkin and apple;  apple was WAY too tart for  me;  I also didn't care for the dressing on my entree; mushy mushrooms and way too unappealing color (it looked like gray dirt and kind of tasted that way too...).

granted it was good, and upon taking leftovers home to work with I decided to deconstruct the crab to make better eating; turns out there was about 1/2 crab in the dish...the broth was excellent, lots of herbs

Neat idea. you can get a sampling of two of their chowdah's and lobster bisque. Clam chowder on left, manhatten in center and lobster on right. Unfortunately only the manhatten was very good with lots of clams. The biques had enough lobster, but an off - burnt flavor; the clam was skimply on clams and potato's and some weird spice, not nutmeg, but whatever it was ruined it for me. Next time I'll try their oyster stew...

Famous for their fireplace, which wasn't working Tue evening, before we headed to Biscotti's. another plus, it's in the non-smoking section and there's about 2 dozen plazma tv's scattered around playing 70's and 80's music. Nice.

New featured album
Hey peeps!  We went to Half Moon Bay for Labor Day weekend.  Enjoy the pics!
News Flash!
Hey peeps.  While cleaning up our HP photosmart, I discovered some pics I hadn't put in the Vegas album!  Not only that, I realized the Vegas album was a mess. So, here's the scoop:

1.  I added new photos!  Well, they're not "new" but you haven't seen them yet!
2.  I gave them all titles.
3.  I arranged the album in a better order.  The beginning of our trip, the entrace to The Orleans, all the Belagio pics are together.  Please enjoy, and drop me a note in the Guestbook.  Blessings!
Another food adventure
Recently we checked out Tarragon's Early Bird special.  I added those pics to the food adventure album.  Check out my yelp review!  Fabulous dinner first round, second one not so much.
