mmm-yoso!!! is a blog about food that Kirk, ed (from Yuma), Cathy and a few others eat and experience. You too get to vicariously enjoy our meals. Hope you enjoy this episode about a couple of days in Cathy's life.
This year, we stayed at the Red Rock Casino Hotel, a bit West of The Strip, near Summerlin.
The hotel is a bit more "modern" in decor than its "sister" Spa Hotel but nice and feels safe for a single female traveler.
Down quilts and pillows and 500 thread count sheets...the 42 inch flat screen.
As well as the 13 inch tv over the bath tub.
ANYHOW, for reasons we won't go into right now, Ms. T could not eat any meals with me and since she drove, I was stuck with "hotel food" for the two day duration of my stay. I walked the whole place, comparing prices.
The Sports Book area had a chalkboard special of 8 Buffalo wings for $5, so I got those to take to my room. Good, nothing extraordinary.
I did manage to get what I wanted for breakfast the next day by getting room service. The European breakfast, with lots of tasty fresh fruit (the blueberries were wonderful!), some Brie and three different cured meats (salami, ham and roast beef), two croissants (which did not taste as though they were baked in house, as they seemed to be at Green Valley Ranch in prior years), fresh coffee, real cream and grapefruit juice (served in that hourglass pitcher you see top right of the tray). $24 plus tip, tax and a room service fee...
There are pools here, not open because of the weather.
We went to the Rodeo, Day 5 (of 10) and during the Opening ceremonies, this lovely long maned and tailed horse accompanied our flag.
Quite a few records were broken.
When we got back, I was hungry and had planned my meal. I had scoured the menus of all the restaurants in the hotel and the 24 hour Grand Cafe had what I wanted.
This set me back $12 and was so worth it. There was roasted chicken served only on two other places on any menus in this building,everyplace else had 'grilled chicken breast" on their menus and I figured this would be fresher and tastier and it was.
I awoke early Tuesday morning to this view of the red rocks outside my window but had enough time to run down to the Grand Cafe for an almond bear claw and coffee (~$5)
Then we drove back to San Diego and the real world.
But we have tickets for next year's Rodeo already ordered.
