Pappa’s Got a Brand New Bag February 15, 2011

More Saddlebackian Leathery goodness:

This is the small satchel and it was one of Dave’s Deals a week or so ago. I just couldn’t resist. Actually I’ve started to regard these things as necessary utilitarian items rather than expensive indulgences. This thing will be great for an emergency first aid kit or tool bag. There was one of the backpacks in Dave’s Deals that I almost pulled the trigger on too. It’s gone now of course. Oh well, there will be something else there soon.

On another matter I took The Parental Units out for dinner last weekend and we visited The Golden Steer for the first time. This is a nice steakhouse that’s been around since 1958 – a thick slice of Old Vegas. The Rat Pack and Elvis used to eat there, among many other celebrities over the years. It was fabulous. Definitely equal to any of the other nice places we’ve been to here. If you’re ever in town I really recommend it. It’s on Sahara just west of the Strip on the north side of the street. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but once you’re in it’s like you’re transported to another era; all the waiters are wearing tuxedos. Expect to pay a bit though – dinner for three was about $260 with the tip.

Yummy on BOTH counts, Mitch!!

I keep looking for a bag for Hubby. It would be an awesome tool for his tour in Egypt.

As to the restaurant, I take it reservations are required, and a waiting list is in effect?

There’s a large coffee satchel in there now Aggie. Snap it up!

As for the restaurant: reservations yes, waiting list no. There was a time when the casinos usually only offered the cheap buffets and cafes. A while back they started to go after the high-end fare to keep their guests on-site. So, most visitors here don’t know about it. Mostly locals and long-time Vegas prowlers go there now.
