Fun Fact and Senses.........

Creative Expression? or Weird?
Being broke in this economy and also needing date time with the Hubs and mindless evenings for my sanity, I now rely on Groupon or Deal Chicken for the deals of the day to actually be able to justify a date, even though every couple in the world needs to date each other forever to erase the mundane details of our lives.  The Groupon I found last week was a dinner and show package to see Senses at the  Grand Sierra Resort and the dinner package was for Briscola, their Italian restaurant , the deal was dinner and the show for 2 for $27.  Sold!  Now I do have to say that I have never even heard of Briscola and not only was the ambiance beautiful but the dinner was delicious.  I had the Swordfish with buttered asparagus, Jay had Linguini with clams, which Jay loved and for desert, my girlfriend Lori and I split the vanilla bean with honey fruit .  YUMMY!  The show, well the show....how do I explain this.  Jay said "It was better than mowing the lawn..." and we all agreed.  The costumes were beautiful and the women were beautiful, no doubt.  I am not sure but the show was an expression of sexual freedom, appealing to all sexualities, gay or straight, there was one violent expression.  They were all in great shape, but the choreography was a bit umm... confusing.  The blond naked lady on the screen with a voice that sounded like she was trying to be sexy on Helium, completely confused me and threw me off, then she would walk naked through the audience and let men smell her...?
Grand Sierra Resort
This may have been a cultural expression we didn't understand.  There were quite a few Asians at the show that seemed to really enjoy it.  The Caucasians in the group all seemed confused.  The clapping was more like a confused golf clap.  Like Jay said, better than mowing the lawn, and the dinner was fantastic.
Money, Money, Money
Now for the fun fact.  Jay worked for Accurate Concrete from 1994-1998, and they poured the front steps and loading docks at Grand Sierra Resort, but at the time I believe it was the Hilton.  They did what the call a "Money Pour".  When they were filling in the steps and the loading dock, they dug one area of the loading dock, by the Sports book, so the North West loading dock, deeper and filled it with old casino chips.  That is how Casino's get rid of old chips.  Fun Fact!  Have a great week!

Ah, hahaha! After hearing you describe it on the phone, I think that I would rather mow the lawn. Just sayin'.....

How funny! No wonder they were giving a great deal like that! They had to basically bribe people to see the show. Oh well... at least you had a nice dinner! That's interesting about the casino chips.
