Wednesday – Yachtsman Steakhouse

We started off going over to Hollywood Studios.  Got a Fast Pass for Toy Story Mania and decided to get in line since it was only 30 minutes.  Beat Pam 172, ooo to 117,000. We looked for the Annual Passholder’s Star Wars Limited Edition pin, but found out it was only available during the weekends.  Went on the Great Movie Ride to cool off and then back on Toy Story Mania.  Didn’t do as well, even though I thought we both were hitting the high scoring targets more often.  We then came back to OKW and went to Olivia’s for lunch.  Nice sandwiches, big enough for us to each bring half home as leftovers.  Now a little worn out from the heat at Hollywood Studios, we closed our eyes for just a second and woke up after a 2 and a half hour nap.  Much needed I guess.

Showered and got dressed for Yachtsman.  While not Victoria and Albert’s, it is still a little more upclass than most restaurants, so I don’t like to wear shorts or t-shirts.  I was impressed that as we were waiting to be seated a family came in to eat and were instructed to remove their hats.  I know we’re in a resort area, but that doesn’t excuse bad manners.

Once again, a fantastic dinner at the Yachtsman. I asked Thomas, our server, about a Shiraz and he said he wasn’t impressed with what they had to offer by the glass.  I then asked about a Merlot and he said they had a very nice one – De Toren Z.  I was a very nice wine.  This time around I ordered the porterhouse.  24 oz of aged beef.  I SHOULD have gone with the NY Strip, but thought I’d give it a try.  Excellent as usual.  This is the only place where I’ll order my steaks medium-rare.  Most beef just is a little too tough, but here it melts in your mouth.  Pam had the Braised Short Ribs and said they were great, but she couldn’t finish them all.  Banana Napolean for both of us and then we came home and while I started getting these posts done, Pam read.  I bought her the books on which “True Blood” is based.  I think she’s on the second book already.  I’ve read “Digital Fortress” by Dan Brown (daVinci Code / Angels and Demons).  It was a great read.  I’m now reading “Getting Things Done” by David Allen.  I listened to it on my iPod (from Audible.com), but wanted to review it and figured the hardcopy would be better this time around.
