It seems we all found some cool new things and places this weekend Mary Joy wrote up a review of a favorite new place of hers, check it out! – Steve
I hope all of our readers had a great time on Superbowl Sunday. I sure did. One of my friends had invited me to a Superbowl party but got sick at the last minute. So after he called, I contacted Susan Dean and she and I went to the Coachman’s Inn, 3240 S. Eastern Ave. The new owners, longtime local attorney Bucky Buchanan and Chip Lightman were putting on a great party with a free barbeque buffet and free beer.
We were greeted by the manager, Ray Mackaly who gave us raffle tickets and showed us to one of the last remaining tables. I won the second raffle held just after the game started and my prizes were a Superbowl XL11 t-shirt and a program. Later on Susan also won a t-shirt. We got completely full with one trip through the buffet. They even came to the tables with more beer in pitchers for those who wanted it. Of course their usual bill of fare was also available.
Everyone who’s ever been to the Coachman’s knows the food, service and ambiance are great and that continues. Bucky made the rounds visiting everyone and manager Ray cracked jokes keeping us happy and comfortable. We watched the game on several TV’s placed strategically for the viewing pleasure of all.
We got to meet several new people and told them about Very Vintage Vegas and our blog site. I’m sending out a special hello to Christine Nichols, a terrific young girl we met who was there with her friend, Daniel. We all enjoyed the game and the half-time entertainment with Tom Petty. Most of us were happy that the Giants won.
Thanks Coachman’s for a great party. Readers note, they’re open 24 hours, mix wonderful libation and serve great food. They have everything from burgers to steak and lobster. Whether for a business lunch or a great night out, try them soon. You won’t be disappointed. – MJ
