Broadway Palm - Fort Myers, FL

First - a medical update:  Friday was a busy day..... I headed out Friday morning before 8:00 AM to have the stitches removed from my finger.  It's been 10 days and they said they were ready to come out!  It's still pretty ugly, it's healing very slowly......and its' a pain trying to do anything simple!

Rich also had a doctor's appt. on Friday for his pneumonia shot.  Had his flu shot last week, and no problem.  But he's had some nasty side effects from the pneumonia shot.  Upper arm very swollen, hot to the touch and sore.  Next day, the same but has moved lower on the arm, and today still swollen, hot and sore, but has moved down to the elbow area........... May have to call the doctor if it continues much longer.

Sooooooo. We were on the road about 2:00 PM on Saturday, headed for Fort Myers.  Plans were to meet up with Nathan and Krystal for dinner and show at the Broadway Palm, spend the night and then meet up with friends in Northport on Sunday.    First stop the hotel.  We had reservations at Americas Best Value Hotel.  We found this hotel last year.  It's nothing fancy, but is very clean, newly remodeled, has nice rooms, nice free breakfast, and decent pool area, and the price is right.  Makes no sense to me to spend a fortune on a hotel.....just to stop and sleep! I'd much rather spend it on travel and entertainment,  

We headed for the Broadway Palm Dinner theater about 5:45, where we met up with Nathan and Krystal.  We had been here a couple of times previously, but this was a first for the two of them.  We were escorted to our table.  An excellent location in the second row back from the stage.

Dinner was a choice of of of three entrees from the menu, or the buffet.  We all elected the buffet, and it was excellent.  Vegetable beef soup, and a large selection of salads and fruit, including an amazing pretzel salad that Krystal and I tried.   There was Prime Rib, Sweet and Sour Pork, Panko and Almond Crusted Whitefish, Pasta Preivera, Au gratin Potatoes, mixed vegetables and an excellent pineapple casserole. Desert was pretty much anything you could think of, from sundaes, brownies, cheesecake, cookies and a large variety of pies.  Everything was delicious.  Thanks, Krystal for this picture.

The show this evening was The Million Dollar Quartet - which takes place at the Sun Records recoding studio, and is the one and only time when these four great singers were together; Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.   During the show you can not take pictures, but I did find these on the Broadway Palm face book page.   This show was absolutely awesome.

Unfortunately plans to meet up with Dieter and Helen in Northport did not work out, so we headed for home early Sunday. Relaxed most of the day, and enjoyed chicken and beans and baked potato for dinner and caught up on a few of our favorite TV programs.
