Mar 14 - We had decided to go to see the movie, The Fighter, based on the true story of "Irish" Micky Ward, staring Mark Wahlberg. It was playing at the Cinemark10 Movies for only $1.25 each on Monday.
We both thought the movie was great and very well done, particularly the fighting scenes. I read that Mark had to go through grueling training, actually got punched a lot, to make the fight scenes realistic -- they were! We highly recommend this movie -- especially at $1.25 - $2.00 a person!!
A couple of months ago, I clipped an advertisement for the Old Creek House Cafe in Palm Springs! Daily Happy Hour and Dinner specials. Since the Monday special was 8 oz. Prime Rib for $9.99, we thought it would be a good idea to go there after the movie (we would already be half way there). Joe and Pam skipped the movie but joined us for an early dinner.
The Old Creek House Cafe in Palm Springs is the former Cedar Creek Inn. It has the look of a beautiful old Inn.
Here we are enjoying our Happy Hour Margaritas before dinner on the patio.
We all agreed the Prime Rib today was not the best we'd ever had, but dinner was very good and it was an afternoon delight!! Will probably try it again for a different Daily Special.
