Riverside GrillPosted: September 16, 2011
JFP and I crossed the border into Council Bluffs, IA for a meeting with a spicy turkey sandwich and a cheeseburger. Riverside Grill is a 6-iron from Harrah’s Casino right on the Missouri River. The food gets a B but the

I attended the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia, PA back in the day. Condeleeza Rice delivered the Tuesday night keynote address and hit the ball out of the park. Later that night, I was riding down an escalator and someone stepped on my foot. I turned and was face-to-face with Dr. Rice. I struggled to say something clever, like “That’s not the last foot you’ll step on”, but couldn’t quite piece it together. So I did this:
DA: Nice speech.
Doc R: Why thank you.
Huh, that’s it?! You’re face-to-face with the former Stanford Provost and future Secretary of State and that’s your best? Step your game up, son.
As a diversion, we gambled at a Donald Trump casino in Atlantic City. I was playing 3rd base at a Blackjack table and displeased some older ladies with my play. (3rd base is the final person to receive or decline a card before the dealer makes his or her move. If 3rd base screws up, it can affect the entire table.) The older ladies finally had it with me and left. The guy at 1st base looked over and said, “You just keep doing whatever you’re doing. I’m winning.” At least he was happy …
Since this post is pretty weak, I’ll cut my losses and stop. Have a fine weekend. GBR.
