    Nicole said, "We stopped at La Cava de Tequila so I could finally try the avocado margarita! I love avocado and I love margaritas so I thought win win....Nope! We both thought this was awful! I kept trying it hoping it would change and it just got worse to me! I threw it out, we also got a strawberry piƱa colada that was a virgin cocktail but we had them add rum! This was pretty good!"

    One last update tonight, this one a dinner update from 1coolnini, who had dinner tonight at AKL's...


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]




    "For dinner tonight we headed over to AKL and Boma. What a beautiful hotel!"


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    "Tonight they had 4 different soups. We loved the spicy seafood gumbo."




    [​IMG]

    "Nice salads including a curry pasta salad."



    [​IMG]

    "Hummus was great...Oh, you can almost see my habanero lime margarita in the background (very good)."




    [​IMG]

    "Spicy chicken, really good."



    [​IMG]

    "On the left was bobotie. I tried it, but didn't like it."


    [​IMG]




    Desserts...

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    Zebra Domes



    [​IMG]


    "Haha...loved this sign. No wonder everyone is so crazy about the zebra domes!"



    "We really enjoyed Boma. If we were comparing it to Cape May, Boma would win without question. The AKL is spectacular. Better dessert selection than Cape May and I just felt there was a better selection of foods with great flavors. We would go back."

    Yum! We ate there for Christmas dinner last year and loved Boma! Funny story about the Zebra Domes: My dad went to get his dessert and said 2 boys (probably around 9) were standing there whispering. He asked them if something was wrong and they said that they had put Zebra Domes on their plate and then saw the "Contains Alcohol" sign and were trying to decide if they should put them back. :laughing:
