Back to the Broadway Palm.....

A week or so ago we got an invitation to visit Direct Buy in Ft. Myers.   As a member of Direct Buy you have access to dealer pricing that is not available to the public.  Basically for a minimal membership fee you can buy everything (except food and clothing) that you buy in any store in town or on line without the markup and shipping that you pay when you purchase in a store or on-line.    There is still a lot that we want to do here with the house - so we decided to make the trip to Ft. Myers.

Saturday was also Vendor Day........ which they have every two weeks, were local vendors are on site for your assistance.

We were very impressed and decided to become members.  In addition to our membership we received a new U3ISlate Tablet, and a $100 Restaurant Gift Certificate.  Those of you who know us - know that we have not yet graduated to the Smart Phone - so it could take us a while to figure out how to use this Tablet!!

Our appointment was for Saturday......but we decided to go down on Friday afternoon, and go back to the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater for the Friday night presentation of Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story.

We were here for the first time a couple of weeks ago to see Those Were the Days - which was so good, we wanted to try it again.  And we were not disappointed.   The buffet menu was different tonight featuring a great salad bar, pork/vegetable soup, baked potato, veggies, beef tips/rice, fish ( can't remember what kind - cuz I don't eat baked fish!), and some kind of chicken cooked with peaches which was wonderful!  And of course every dessert you can possibly think of on the dessert tables.

The show was terrific.  Started out a little slow, but got better and better as the night went on.  By the end of the show everyone - even Rich!!! was on their feet singing along, clapping and dancing in the isles!  We had a great time.  I think we're going to look into their special - where you save $12/ticket if you attend four shows during the year!  Tickets are a little pricey - but the food is delicious and the entertainment is excellent.  

We slept in Saturday morning and didn't leave the hotel until 11:00.   Since we missed breakfast at the hotel we decided to stop at Denny's on the way to Direct Buy.

This skillet breakfast with eggs, sausage, onions, peppers, mushrooms and home fries is excellent!!  I skipped the mushrooms and shared some of mine with Rich!

We were home about 4:00.  Breakfast was BIG - so I didn't fix any dinner.  We chilled, watched a little  TV - grabbed a sandwich for dinner a little later and called it a day!
