Every once in awhile the Sands has special events going on. Yesterday was a book signing by Emeril Lagasse! The hours were from 10:00 am through 2:00 pm... and you needed to purchase a ticket. We arrived at 1:45 pm... so, we missed that.
Emeril has two restaurants in the Sands. One is Emeril's Burgers and More. We've had a meal there... and it has to be THE BEST burger I have ever had in my life! Just so juicy and full of flavor! His other restaurant is Emeril's Chop House. This is a more formal dining experience with some great items on the menu. We haven't tried this place yet. But, yesterday was a special event going on where Emeril (the man himself) will be cooking at the restaurant. Ticket sale in advance would get you a 5 course meal (did I mention it was to be cooked by Emeril?) and a chance to meet him. Well, we did not get tickets for that... but just as we were leaving the casino, I had decided to wander over near the restaurant to see if I could see him! And, sure enough, there he was! Out in the open, speaking to his chef's through the open window area! As I was pointing him out to Bob, Emeril looked up, so I waved and smiled.... and then Emeril smiled and waved back to me!!!! Yay!!!! A small gesture... but it was my celebrity star struck moment of the century! LOL! Something to keep smiling about for a long time!
That's my big story for the week... and I'm sticking to it!
