At Red Rock Frank wanted one upscale meal at the Yardhouse. His main course was microbrews, of which they had quite a selection. One even came with a free glass.
I stay away from carb high beer most of the time. I am also tired of the inflated red wine prices.
Here I saw a sangria that looked great, a hand crafted specialty drink which was cheaper than wine. I don't quite get that. How can they put a glass of red wine in with a liquor and other tastes and end up offering it cheaper than buying the red wine? This one was made with agave, but I have found that in most places I can have them just leave our the agave. I had two of these, one on a happy hour special of $8. They did not spike my sugar. Very interesting.
For my entre I had a halibut special and it was the best piece of fish I have had in a while. Buffets don't offer good fish. It is always overcooked.
Frank and I had a good long talk. The waiter was great. The music was not too bad. So it was a great meal. We reduced the price a bit with $10 of comped points.
It was one of three meals over 20 days that I paid cash for.
I guess I deserved it.
Son Frank and I like to hike a bit in Red Rock Canyon as part of our father/son time away. It is a great setting just to quietly enjoy one another's company.
On our second day we did not hike. We checked out of the hotel. Frank had to get to the airport, but we had time to drive around the park again, see a few of the pulloff sights, and take a few more photos.
Frank seemed content to take his time this morning. He went down to play a bit more video poker.
