    I would like to volunteer to do some reporting. We are not on the dining plan and will do quite a bit of CS meals, but I will be happy to send some reviews your way. We will be down Nov 9-17 th. we do have ressies at Crystal Palace, The Plaza and Tonys. I have been very much enjoying this thread while counting down to my trip.

    I'm sorry!! I barely managed to get pics with my regular camera. We got news on our way to dinner that our house in CO was under mandatory evacuation due to rapidly growing wildfire. My DH and I were both super stressed. He wants to fly back to CO early. However, since the house is evacuated there isn't much he can do so we are torn on what we should do. The fire has already burned almost 2000acres since yesterday afternoon. They have no containment as high winds and gusts are preventing air crew to help fight it. Those same high winds and gusts are also what is causing it to spread so much. So anyways that is why there were no pictures. I saw someone ask about the cheese soup. We did have that and the flavor was good but the consistency was VERY thin. We split a portion and neither of us could finish itz

    I'm pretty sure that Becky loved her margarita, but she has already started her reviews so it won't be long until we can find out for sure. Here is the LINK to her Dining Report. :thumbsup2





    Oh, I hope so too, Denise! :goodvibes




    Hi GM! I've been wondering how your surgery went last week. Hopefully you will recover quickly. And I'm so glad that this thread is helpful.

    But...YAY!!! about the news of your August trip. :cool1: If by some chance this thread is still going then, I would love to again have the services of one of my best live reporters. :thumbsup2





    That would be excellent! I will send you a PM with my info right after I post an update that just came in. Thanks so much!

    Thanks Jill. Right now our concern is my MIL and the dogs. My MIL doesnt drive so they are at the mercy of our neighbors. She doesn't want to stay where she stayed last night so will probably move to a hotel with the dogs. Will let you know if we need anything. Thanks!

    That looks sooo yummy. I've read Kouzzina's menu a few times and always find myself gravitating towards the breakfast offerings.

    Thank you, Becky!

    I'm not trying to be stupid, but is the crust supposed to be that crispy?

    La Hacienda looks so good to me! I'm not sure I could convince the kiddos though.

    Stephanie (HNT2419) sent me an update today which included a few more pictures from their lunch at Rainforest Cafe yesterday and their dinner at Riverside Mill last night. She had some issues with the WI-FI last night so was unable to send all her pics then. So I've added these additional photos to her Rainforest Cafe Update and her Riverside Mill Update.

    Can I say again how much I love this thread?? I haven't been able to check the dining reviews very much for a few days and it's great to come back and see so many awesome live reports! It's great to click a few pages back and just go through all of the pictures all at once.

    Can I also say that "amazeballs" is currently one of my favorite words! :rotfl2:
