Trip Advisor Series 2017 Branson, MO–Fall Creek Steak and Catfish House July 9, 2017–Heads UP!! I quickly found out that they throw fresh warm buns at you–how fun is that? Fall Creek has the best brisket I’ve ever eaten! Amazing smoky flavor! Very tender!! Now a little about the restaurant…. Our waiter, Roger, was awesome! Even though the place had gotten busy, he continued to serve us attentively. I came to this restaurant with a local couple. We had grown up together…

Trip Advisor Series 2017 Branson, MO–Pancho Villa’s Tex Mex Restaurant July 9, 2017–For lunch on our second day of CVTC training, my roommate and I braved crossing the busy traffic of Country 76 Blvd for a bite to eat. Pancho Villa’s Tex Mex Restaurant is located across the street from the Clarion Hotel, where our conference was located. Crossing this street during a crazy summer weekend is basically taking your life into your own hands, so be careful! Years ago…

Trip Advisor Series 2017 Branson, MO–Holiday Hills Resort Pavilion July 8, 2017–After our first full day of training at the Coastal Vacations Travel Club regional conference, our minds were swimming with information.

Trip Advisor Series: 2017 Branson–Mel’s Diner

Trip Advisor Series 2017 Branson, MO–Mel’s Hard Luck Diner and Grand Village Shops July 8, 2017–I attended the First Annual Bucket List Rebellion held at the Coastal Vacations Travel Club regional conference at the Clarion Hotel. Almost everyone else paid for the $30 coaching luncheon session. But, I thought that was a little too pricey for lunch. Some people suggested that I eat at the hamburger joint next door–they have singing waiters. I DID NOT WANT hamburgers but I went…

Trip Advisor Series: 2017 Butte, MT

Trip Advisor Series 2017 Butte, Montana, USA June 8-10, 2017–I attended a Red Cross training that was being held at the Quality Inn and Conference Center.  Although it was just off the freeway, I didn’t notice any traffic noise. The hotel seems to have been previously neglected and is now in the process of getting some much needed loving.  They are in the process of installing new carpet and log furniture.  Our room had a great shower! The hotel has…

Trip Advisor Series: 2017 Las Vegas–Getting Around

Trip Advisor Series 2017 Las Vegas–Getting Around May 6-10, 2017–So you’re headed to Las Vegas.  You’ve got a great price at a primo hotel on The Strip.  You don’t want the added expense of a car rental. The Strip doesn’t seem so colossal.  “Let’s just walk to all the different places”, you say! The Strip is so much more “colossal” than a newbie can imagine. Car Rental–It’s possible that Kolkotta has better behaved drivers than Las Vegas.  So, going without…

Trip Advisor 2017 Las Vegas–“Menopause, the Musical“ May 8, 2017–WHAT A HOOT!!  You have to go!! An executive at the hospital where I work had visited Las Vegas and had gone to “Menopause, the Musical” with his wife (probably around February, 2017).  He RAVED about it!  I figured that it had to be excellent if a GUY had enjoyed it THAT MUCH!  I was headed down to Las Vegas for a convention a couple of months later. I went on…
