And the fun continues!
Last night, many of us let loose and had a great time
boozin’ socializing at the Sears Social Hour.
At this point I was pretty darn exhausted, so it was either grab a drink or pass out with a nap. Obviously I chose the drink.
A glass of Sauvignon Blanc, to be exact, which was light, refreshing, and wonderful.
I had a great time chatting it up with some awesome ladies, like Gabriela,
and also getting to know some new friends, like Theodora.
After everyone enjoyed their free drink, a group of us headed off to dinner at local seafood restaurant called Mo’s.
Seeing as though I was in Maryland, I felt compelled to order some crab cakes. When in Rome, right?
So I ordered the Backfin Crab Cakes, which completely blew me away with their enormous size…
Call me crazy, but I had thought that crab cakes were usually more flat and pancake-like? My crab cakes came with some steamed veggies and fresh rolls, both of which were great.
My crab cakes, however, we’re all that fantastic. Since I’m not one to usually order them on a menu, I had to ask a few of my fellow dinner pals whether or not it was normal to have pieces of shells in my crab cakes…like, a pretty noticeable amount of crunchiness was going on.
Turns out, it’s not really the norm, and a few people were also disappointed with the amount of extra “filling” that was present, rather than big chunks of crab. For $21.99, I definitely did not feel like I got my money’s worth. It was a bit of a bummer, and I probably ended up eating about half before calling it quits.
Luckily, I had no time to let it bother me since I was in such great company.
As the night was winding down, I began feeling more like a zombie than anything else. I was fast approaching the 20-hour mark on being awake, and I’m sorry, but I am just not good on minimal sleep. So by the time I got back to our room, I’m pretty sure I was asleep before my head hit the pillow. Phew…
I’m in the middle of a session right now, so time to get back to taking some notes!
Question for the Day:
Do you like crab cakes? Where’s the best crab cake you ever had?
