Now for the food portion of the day ... we ate breakfast at a clean little cafe, Betty's in Boyne Falls. Had a sweet little waitress named Marjery, good sausage and eggs. I got a sandwich to go for the golf course. Have to stay fueled up. We also got hot dogs at the course. It is so easy to make a good hot dog, why not go beyond slapping a limp wiener in a stale bun? We would have stayed there and drank longer, but the waitress was too disinterested in our glasses. FYI the golf course is Spring Brook near Walloon Lake.
After golf we went back to the Eagles for drinks. Roger wanted to eat at the benefit they had going on there but he took one for the team and we went to Red Mesa Grill for dinner. Bev and I were looking forward to Mexican food all day. Drooling actually. That is my favorite place in the area. It is more a Latin American cuisine, and in the fall the speciality is Brazilian Churrasco. Which is grilled meat. Very tasty with interesting sauces, marinades and spices. We split a appetizer, shrimp stuffed with chilies and Montery Jack cheese. Beyond yum. Paul and I split the mixed grill churrasco, which was a big sausage, pork tenderloin and skirt steak. We got a very interesting salad each, mixed greens, pickled baby carrots, a few random beans. New tastes welcomed. Our main dish was excellent. fresh veggies, grilled potato slices and fried plantains. Roger and Bev ordered the flank steak only, and it was the hottest meat on the grill. Not hot really, but Roger is more of a meat and burrito guy. He was a good sport and gets extra brownie points for not whining. As usual the chips and salsa were excellent. We sat on the porch overlooking the Boyne River. Quieter and warmer than inside, better all around for us. Forgot to mention the pitchers of Dos Equi beer with limes. Oh, my favorite beer ever. It always reminds me of eating at Manuel's in Green Valley with my brother Dave and wife Val. More fun times.
Then we went back to the Eagles for the dance portion of the evening. The band was good, but so loud that it reset my heart beat. That can't be good. Paul and I sat in the quieter room and talked and Roger and Bev did some dancing.
