Had a great weekend in Fort Worth Texas. It's a nice city/town. Clean, friendly people, cool area to stroll, tasty restaurants. Just the right mix. Here's the birthday boy in Sundance Square enjoying the fountain show
It's not the Bellagio in Vegas, but it's fun. Everyone is snapping pictures and enjoying the vibe.
daytime - cool mural. Ate at the Cowtown Diner - awesome chicken fried steak. Huge thumbs down to Cabo Grande - bad service and cold food. Big time fun at Four Day Weekend - improvisation/comedy show. These guys were hilarious and clever. Many from Second City troupe in Chicago - 'nuff said. Only $20 - a bargain
View from my yoga mat on Saturday morning. The Omni Hotel was very nice - you don't get as much bang for the buck from a fancy hotel. We slept well and the staff was very nice, but c'mon - replenish the water bottles and give free WiFi - seriously, you charge? OMG - total First World problem.
Ray enjoyed the Swedish massage at the spa. I enjoyed the yoga and even did the treadmill at the fitness center. Just sitting in the lobby at 6:30 pm Saturday eve was entertainment. We watched folks roll in for a black tie wedding. Some stunning dresses. Some women were trying to NOT fall off their shoes. It was amusing to hang out and drink beer - we were clean and classy in our jeans.
