    :thanks: Just realized that I forgot to officially thank budafam for all the great live updates she did for us doing her trip last week. Also wanted to let everyone know that she has started a Dining Report, so be sure to check it out! :thumbsup2


    I received a few more updates from our current "live" reporters this evening, which I will post in the morning. Good night, everyone! :wave2:

    Just popping in to say I'm still loving this thread even though I've been lurking. We had some bad news and I'll be going for surgery on Wednesday but also some good news because I made it to round 2 of the Disney Moms Panel.

    Looking forward to the new reviews this morning while I'm stuck out on a high school football field :)

    Well hello there, GM! :wave2: So sorry to hear that you will have to have surgery. :worried: I hope all goes well and that you have a speedy recovery. :goodvibes Please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. If you are unable to check in here, you can always text me with an update. ;)

    But great news about the Disney Moms Panel! Congrats on making it to the next round and good luck...that would be so cool if you are chosen to be one of the panelists! :cool1:

    Enjoy your day on the football field! Hopefully the weather there is much nicer than the rainy weekend we are having here in Central Illinois.

    Paula (smile4stamps) & Hunter attended the Swan & Dolphin Food & Wine Classic last night.
    Paula sent us a few preview pics to show us a little of what we have to look forward to when she does a review of this event in her Dining Report. :thumbsup2

    Paula said, "It was awesome!! Of course, unlimited food & wine = sleepy, happy people!! :cloud9:



    I have a funny story to share with you regarding my text exchange with Paula last night. My DH and I were out shopping last night...mostly for boring "man" stuff like caulk and electrical boxes :( but we did look at keyboards for my IPad because my DH said I've been hogging our shared laptop lately (Go figure! :confused3 :lmao:). At about the same time that I received a text from my DD letting us know that she was getting off work, I also received Paula's update regarding her evening at the F & W Classic. Well, I responded with..."We will meet you at Steak 'n Steak. Is that okay?" To which I received the reply, "Bed for us." So after a few seconds of wondering why my DD was going to bed at 9:00 on a Saturday night and who exactly the "us" was, it finally dawned on me that I had sent the text to the wrong person. :rotfl2: Although I would have happily met up with Paula & Hunter last night, I think they were way too full and sleepy for Steak 'n Shake. :rotfl:

    jabead . . .ask some of your live reporters if they are needing long sleeves at night. The temps for next week are forecasted to be a couple of degrees cooler than yesterday or the day before. I'm thinking long sleeve T-shirt, but am wondering what they've observed others needing.

    Loving the reports!

    That's too funny about the text exchange mix up!!! :rotfl2: I mixed up one of my sons and a friend one time and asked if they wanted me to transfer some $ to them to purchase airfare for a trip... the male friend asked "sure, where are we going and won't your husband feel left out?" :rotfl2: Oops!

    It looks like Paula and Hunter did not make the mistake at YSH of ordering the cheese plate with the goo! Their F&W selections look like the perfect sampling of deliciousness!

    Love Stitchaholic's Mickey ear oranges for the Sangria drink at YSH - cute!

    And then finally... one of my all time favorites made an appearance - the pancakes and Tonga Toast at Kona!!! Awesome!!! ::yes::

    [​IMG]

    North Carolina Buttermilk-fried Oysters with Buttery Brioche, Southern Apple Slaw, and "Red Rooster" Remoulade

    served Warm and Chocolaty with Bourbon-Caramel Sauce topped with Whipped Cream



    stitchaholic said, "The cheesecake was great, but I preferred the mousse. It was very rich after a big meal, with the caramel sauce and vanilla bean cream. Too rich to finish. I loved the orange tuile cookies that accompanied this. I would take a box of those home." ;)



    stitchaholic also added, "I loved this meal! Narcoossee's is a magical place to eat on the water. We watched the Electrical Water Pageant and the fireworks from the deck...beautiful! :goodvibes Also, our server, Janet, was amazing. Please ask for her if you plan on eating there." :thumbsup2

    The Narcoossee's menu is looking so nice right now - I'd love to try the pumpkin ravioli or the swordfish/grouper. The fettuccini scampi with shrimp and lobster also sounds great. :cloud9:
