Where did the Es - Car - Go ?

In our tummies!!!! Yes, Myles and I had snails!
December 11th was the Christmas party for Paramount Nevada. We met at the Atlantis Casino for dinner. It was AWESOME! We had a great 7 course dinner and spent 4 hours eating! Beginning with wine for some and diet soda with a cherry added for others (Hey, I don't drink wine so I had them fix something special for me, hence the cherry!)There was a bread basket with a variety of breads, all were great. For appetizers we had fire roasted artichokes, butternut squash ravioli(this was the best) and escargo. Myles liked the escargo more than I did. They did not taste bad, they were actually pretty good with a texture like a whole cooked mushroom, for me it was just the mental block of not being able to get past the fact that I was eating a snail! By the way, they are not slimy! We moved on to soup and salads, Myles had the Lobster Bisque which was heavenly, I had a very nice salad. For dinner we had salmon, steak and lobster with a variety of hot and cold king crab legs served on the side. By the time dessert rolled around we were all pretty full but what the heck I had of course my favorite, creme brulee! They did serve a dessert that was pretty cool though, it was a chocolate burger and fries. Want to hear more? It was a chocolate cake served on a muffin with strawberries and kiwi on top to represent tomatoes and pickles. A side dish of raspberries for ketchup, sliced up mangos for fries and a mini rootbeer float. It looked exactly like a hamburger meal!Dinner ended with dessert wine and coffee for some and diet soda with a cherry for others!
It was an awesome experience. The waiters were SO professional, it was like we were the only people in the world. I gained a great respect for the profession, they were so impressive.
We had a great time with Myles work associates. It was nice for me to be able to meet people and finally be able to put names with faces and learn a bit more about everybody! A very enjoyable evening.
