PACKERS vs PATRIOTS


This morning my wife and I will be heading up to our cottage in the Minocqua area to make sure everything is OK and ready for us to spend the Thanksgiving holiday up there. We'll be carting along all the ingredients for a sumptuous feast.

And speaking of feasts, we'll then head over to The Lake of the Torches Casino in Lac du Flambeau to partake of the really good buffet that they offer for a very reasonable price. And then ........... we'll go into the Convention Center and watch the Packer/Patriot game on a screen that's about as big as the side of my house! There's no charge to watch and beverages and food are available (like you needed any more food after enjoying the buffet).

If you haven't been there, check it out. It's well run and well maintained. They put out a very good spread and watching football games there is exciting. You should try to avoid the "one-armed bandits" as you make your way to the exit, although I'll have to admit my bride won $219 the last time we watched a Packer game there.

Although the buffet was super we could not watch the game on the huge screen in the Convention Center as they were setting up the hall for a big show. The game was carred on High Definition screens through out the Casino. So we watched the game on the small screen at our cottage. It was embarassing. How embarassing would it have been to watch that game on the big screen??? I shudder to think about it!
