    Default While in St. Louis...

    did anyone have some Jive Turkey?

    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    I learned that St louis is a great town for the tournament. Plenty of great Irish Pubs... Flannery's, Hannegan's, Jack Patrick's. I walked by the Jive Turkey the first day but it was too early for food. Oh, and I'm sure Mike Shannon's Steakhouse is great, but when we walked in there after 4th session, the host was absolutely rude. No hi, how are you, even though we greeted her so we left and ended up at a place called Tony's. That is another whole story I'll get to later.

    So after fourth session we were at the Hilton and being snubbed by the host at Mike Shannon's, it was late and we still had not eaten. The Hilton's restaurant was closed but we saw a sign still lit across the street. Restaurant & Bar. Not sure what the building was, but a few of us still had beers so, the rest went over to get a table so if they were about to close we'd be in. When the stragglers arrived there were eight of us with two more coming for a total of ten, but there was a dilemma. When you walked into this huge foyer, there were two restaurants, one on the right called Anthony's, and one on the left called Tony's. We went to the one on the left, and asked if some of our group had a table already. They had not had anyone come in. It looked to be a formal wear kind of place anyway, so we went over to Anthony's and there part of our group was sitting at a table for six. We asked if we could slide another table over and they said they couldn't do it. The waiter had said to them already that the other restaurant was formal and closed at 10:30 anyway. It was a little past that. John O'Connor did not believe it, so the two of us went back and asked. The host said no way is it formal even though it looked it, and we had to take off our Harvard caps, and that sure they could seat ten. So I went back and got the others and we filed in. By the time (a minute) we got back they had a table for ten already set up. I asked the host if maybe the restaurant was named for Tony Larussa, and he said no, maybe Tony Saprano however. It was a round table and the host assigned the head waiter to John, and then the fun began. The table had about a hundred other waiters just swirling around us... professionally taking drink and then dinner orders from the women first, and then the men. Everything came out quickly, felt like 5 minutes to me. One could tell none of this were quite use to this type of service, as we sat there stunned as everything happened around us. It's the type of place where they would even treat Lost like a millionaire, even knowing he only had a few bucks beer money left in his pocket. He might have ended-up doing some dishes afterwards, but they'd be polite about it. All-in-all, best service I've had anywhere hands down, and I've been around the world to some of the finest restaurants. The food was excellent by the way. Thanks to the host at Mike Shannon's for not being polite or we would not have gotten there.
    See you in St. Louis!
