Dinner for 2 at Texas Roadhouse
Yesterday I played in a charity Texas Hold Em event at a local high school. A $10 "donation" got you $900 in chips. First prize was an XBox, 2nd-6th got to pick from 4 restaurant gift cards and a Target gift card. 24 people entered, about 1/2 of them high school students(dead money as the poker world might say). 4 tables of 6 with the final 3 from each table moving on until there were 6 left at the final table. I got great cards early to move on. Decent cards the 2nd round to survive the final cut and then crappy cards at the final table. I ended up in 4th place and had to pick between an Italian place, Applebees, and Texas Roadhouse. I chose the steakplace. I'm either in for a $20 treat or a $50 treat. I simply says, "Dinner for Two." If I get to order ribeye or shrimp dinners then it is huge, but I do remember in the past they advertised a "Dinner for Two" for $19.99 so that may be what I get. The actual winner of the tournament was from the dead money clan, a high school girl. She might have gotten lucky on one hand that put her in the chip lead, but she sure knew how to use those chips.
$20 Giftcard to Macaroni Grill
After church today we had a chili cookoff and all the proceeds went to the Pregnancy Crisis Center that was coming to our town. While eating my chicken chili there was announcement to make sure to put your names in for door prizes. I put one in for me and my daughter. The 2nd one picked was my daughter. She won a $20 Macaroni Grill gift card. My wife won a Chili's keychain.
Not a bad weekend. $10 poker tournament nets me "maybe" a $50 dinner. $12 chili lunch nets The MANFC family a few meals at Macaroni Grill.
The last positive thus far is that it has rained ALL DAY! I am sure a few firemen in Texas and Oklahoma are glad they can rest easy for at least a few days.
