Met up with my real life and work friends, Michelle (gemmi05), Lisa (Lisabrook21), Jen, Scott, and Melanie (Mellemel8) and RJ (RJ1982ster) at Dona Maria's in downtown for good, authentic Mexican food like I grew up with! It was great to finally hang out with Lisa, Michelle, and Jen...all at the same time! LOL. It was the first time since I got here that we had all been together! Jen was supposed to come bridesmaid dress shopping with us on Saturday but she was not feeling well for most of the week so she wasn't able to make it! Sal (Sincitytraveler) was supposed to show up too but work was chaotic after being gone on vacation so he was unable to show! :-(
Dinner was a riot! RJ was the only one who had not met all my real life work friends and he fit right in.....
Mel and I were going to meet up with my friend Kim (Bundysmom) and her old friend Brad who was in town for the Harley Davidson convention.
We arrived at Red Square only to feel completely underdressed when we looked inside and saw people in suits and dresses. We were still in capris and flip flops! We ended up ordering some of the most expensive drinks ever.....Mel had Belvedere, on the rocks and I tried their new infused kiwi coconut, on the rocks. Mel's was $16 and mine was $13. Yeah, mighty stiff prices on the drinks but we are in Vegas mind you! Red Square is a high end place complete with a decent caviar menu and appetizers that will run you upwards of $20-30.
Kim and Brad arrived - Kim had her Starbucks and Brad had water. Mel and I nursed our drinks and finally started feeling tired so we thought we'd head home and call it an early night.
We went out and danced a little bit, having to leave the stage at one point due to Melanie and I being unable to stop laughing at this guy dancing.
He kinda looked like he was riding a bicycle at the same speed, no matter what tempo the song was. And then he took his hair out of the ponytail and really tried to go buck wild! We wandered around a bit and had planned to venture on home around 1:15am or so and we were waiting a bit more to ensure I was a good driver even though I only had the one vodka which I nursed for hours.
Well, we were hanging out near the bar people watching when someone came up beside me and started chatting. Mind you, there is a Harley Davidson convention in town and there are bikers everywhere! Bald head and tattoo heaven for me...OMG! Turns out this guy, Chris, is here for the convention as his family just opened a dealership up in Idaho.
Chris had to get to his room and get some sleep as he had to be in seminars in less than 4 hours. HA HA. Mel and I chatted with Terry a bit longer at the bar and we headed out, stopping for some additional photos at Red Square since they were now closed and the walkways were pretty much deserted.
Of course, most of the night, Melanie had been saying she wanted frozen yogurt. How on earth could she be hungry after the amount of food we inhaled at Dona Marias!??!?! In any case, as we were walking to the car, she decides she wants Roberto's Mexican now instead! LOL.
We head out and of course make a pit stop for Robertos's chicken tacos and finally I get her dropped off and back to Lisa's house....4am. Of course, now I am wound up so no sleep for me until almost 5am when I was finally able to fall asleep! Good grief Melanie! LOL.
