Memo to Self: Don't Go to the Atlantis Buffet on Tuesday

This afternoon we decided that when I got done with Day Jobbe at 4 PM (an advantage to starting around 7, assuming no Work Emergencies), we should go into Reno to pick up something from the RV place that we forgot last weekend, have dinner at the Atlantis, and do our big grocery shopping at WinCo, thus avoiding having to go in on the weekend.

When we got to the Atlantis, we immediately balked at the buffet: the queue was immense, stretching halfway to the Manhattan Deli. The combination of free buffet for certain levels of elite affinity card holders and the Veterans' Day holiday, apparently. So we went to the Manhattan Deli instead, and while it cost more, it was still excellent, finished off by some of the best cheesecake I've ever had. Even better, luck was with us: I mis-marked a keno ticket, but the combinations I marked (as opposed to those I meant to mark) came up, and a $10 ticket paid $34.50, paying a decent chunk of the cost of dinner.

Grocery shopping on a Tuesday evening, however, is a winner, as opposed to a Saturday afternoon, particularly a Saturday on the first day of the month.
