They ran out of the sangria at the Budweiser booth so unable to sample.

Lean Cuisine Market Creations

Stouffer's Lean Cuisine had a huge booth with free samples of its new
Market Creations frozen entree (garlic chicken),designer plates, and a
photo booth. This was my dinner last night so I went back 3 times!

Bezzerwizzer at Shecky's

I played a new game betterwizzer at Shecky's - it was fun. It's kind
of like Trivial Pursuit with different categories including food (eg,
Q: what food is associated with tarte tatin? A: Apple), geography,
politics. Not sure if the PR woman from Mattel (Rachel?) was letting
me win but I was good!

Two Blonde Hunks

I posed with two blonde hunks at the Veet booth at Shecky's Girls
Night tonight - that's not me in the photo. My photo should be posted

Jamaican Black Pepper Shrimp

Went back to The Cheesecake Factory so my mom could taste their Thai
Lettuce Wraps. Still want to replicate it at home. I ordered the
Jamaican Black Pepper Shrimp and really liked it. It's my kind of dish
- spicy, fruity (mango salsa), with lots of carbs (rice and plantains).
