Quick update before I head down to vend

James and I had real treat last evening. We decided at the last minute to head over to the Cuban Club for Voltaire's,, off-site performance. The fashion show was still going on so we mingled in the lobby and he noticed that Voltaire was selling his cds off to the side. We bought the newest one and paid in cash. As Voltaire was signing it for me he told us a story. Basically he caught a cab to the airport and then realized he only had $6 and no wallet. His girlfriend had the cab come back so she could pay him and V managed to get on the plane with just his passport. He found enough change to buy a bottle of water and a cup of coffee in his backpack. Luckily someone from the con was picking him up in Miami and bringing him to Tampa. The point of the story was that the $15 dollars I handed him was literally the only cash he had on him and he was thanking us cause now he wasn't 'penniless'! Dunno if it was true or not but hilarious to hear him tell it! ROFLMAO!

Before I forget - ohmygawd, our dinner last night! We went out intending to have Quiznos or Subway, which was just a block away from the hotel. We ended up in this gourmet meal instead for maybe $15 each. James had a roasted pear, bacon and blue cheese salad, while I had a duck & brie crepe on a slice of grilled pineapple. Yes. You read that right. We treated it like tapas and shared. I think we just stopped ourselves from licking the plates clean. Nom Nom Nom!
