Neither Lisa nor I had had a whole lot to eat today, although I had at least had a chance to have breakfast/lunch at SLC and I'd had a couple of food bars on the flights, so we got our luggage up to the room, Lisa had a quick bath, and we set out to find some dinner. There are a fair number of restaurants within an easy walk of the hotel, and we went to BD's Mongolian BBQ, a midwestern chain that I like but that Lisa wasn't terribly enthused about. BD's uses a different way of doing sauces, and doesn't have the sweet, thin sauces to which Lisa is accustomed. Still, we both ate our fill.
Having had all of that food, we needed to walk, and we walked some around the area, which has been extensively redeveloped. Unfortunately, as the sun was setting, it was starting to get cold, and we didn't have a jacket for Lisa, so we had to head back to the hotel, pausing at the parking garages where her pickup is parked to collect a few additional things. We'd been told that there was a pre-con reception happening downstairs, and it seemed the right thing to do to go there, so we headed there after a brief stop at the hotel room.
