We dined (lightly) at Sullivan's last night on a balmy (sorry mid-westerners) night in the bar. The entertainment, the Soul Brothers, were excellent and soft enough that we could talk and request songs too. In a Steinbeck mood we ordered a Wedge to start (East of Eden, Iceberg Lettuce, etc.) which was excellent and perfectly balanced with our Maker's Mark Manhattans (@ 6 dollars on happy hour). The place was packed as always but the food quality never varies. We've seen Gary Sinise, among others ther for dinner, at previous visits, so it is a good place for star gazing as well as steaks. During the happy hour (all night Thursday and Siunday, limited hours otherwise) all martini style drinks and bar food is priced at 6 dollars-nearly half off the regular price. Highly recommended for a quick bite, a few dance turns on the floor to Chuck Berry or Marvin Gaye songs, and a good time.
Sorry for the delay--AT&T WiFi, the provider here at Shadow Ridge was blocking (I am not making this up) both Marriott.com and the Insiders. People all over the place we looking forlorn, and had to speak to each other rather than gaze at screens on devices they carried. We are back for the moment--and there's a great tale to tell of how that happened and the restaurants since the last post.
