I no longer dislike Mondays. Of course, when you no longer work, it makes no difference. These days, Monday for me means Zumba. I start my week with a Zumba class by one of the best Zumba instructors at Las Vegas Athletic Club, Kim Bainbridge. I always end up my class in a big sweat so I take a good and long shower right after the class. After that I always stop at the Juice Bar to have my regular protein shake. But not today. Today I traded off my healthy protein shake for happy hour.
After my workout, I headed off to Maggiano’s Little Italy at the Fashion Show Mall for an early happy hour. I know that a happy hour on an early Monday afternoon is not the norm, but when your girlfriend is a flight attendant, you need to put up with her schedule. That’s what friends are for, right?
By the time I got to Maggiano’s, I was really hungry, so that was happy-hour-lunch-dinner for me. The shock was that they only had four choices of appetizers for happy hour. But that was not a problem. I combined my appetizer with a spinach salad and I was happy, happy. They had wine for $3.95 and Martini’s for $4.95. I was not there for the liquor, I was there for the food. However, I ended up having a glass of wine, which matched perfectly with my salad and appetizer. All we ordered was really good and served in generous portions at happy hour prices.
Zumba and happy hour – not bad for a Monday. The rest of the week won’t be much fun. I have things to do plus I need to prepare for guests in town next week. Back to my tour guide job. This one will be a lot of fun.
