Vegas Hangover Or Spring Fever?

Gosh since we got back early Tuesday morning from Vegas, I have been WORN OUT! Tuesday waking up was a given, I thought I might make it to Trekking class, but no way! I felt like I was in a daze most of the morning, but thought I might catch at Kickboxing class that night...but nope! Decided to be lazy. Wednesday morning I would be fine I thought. Well my alarm went off at 6:30am for my track workout and I thought I might 'just close my eyes', well that lasted until 7:45. I missed my track workout that I love to go to. So I rushed in my slow motioness and made it to 9am kickboxing, but barely could do much there, I was just so darn sleepy. I am taking Claritin, but it takes a while to kick in. Everything is blooming and its doing everything to mess with my allergies I guess. I did make it at my normal time for Bootcamp this morning, but still felt a little sluggish. I need to catch up so I can be my normal 'full' of energy self! We barely slept in Vegas, and surely I am caught

Central on Summer is #23

We went to Central BBQ on Summer Avenue on October 2, 2009. We went to celebrate Randy's birthday and sat outside on the patio.

Brett's Review: Central on Summer was delicious as usual. I got the sausage and cheese plate for the table and except for the sausage coming out lukewarm it was pretty good. My bbq sandwich was delicious as usual. I love the new big screen TV's they added earlier this year. Since it was kinda crowded inside, we sat outside on the front patio and had a very pleasant lunch. Central on Summer gets a 4 out of 5 for me.

Courtney's Review: I have always been a fan of Central bbq and I always order the pork sandwich. This time I decided to try something different and ordered the smoked
turkey sandwich. So good! They slice the turkey really thin so its easy to eat and it has such a great smoked flavor. I topped it with their mild BBQ sauce and it was delicious. I'll definitely order that again.

Kembree's Review: Gosh, I don't know what it is..I just don't see what is so special about Central BBQ...we
decided to do this 2nd location so we could get a better experience and I am sorry Central, I just didn't. The customer service when ordering was okay, I asked a question and got a finger point. I got the sandwich and it was not as hot in temperature as I would have wanted. It was average, just plain average. The mac and cheese was gross and the fries were plain. The sausage and cheese were ok..the presentation was nice. I mean I loved sitting outside and the weather was gorgeous. As Brett mentioned they had TV's inside, maybe it would be fun to watch a game here..
The best part was celebrating Randy's birthday and the Muddy's cupcakes that Diane brought for Randy's birthday celebration. Central always wins the reader's polls in the CA and the Flyer, but I think these people have never tried anything else, which is sad. Central gets a 3.5 out of 5 from me.

Tony's Review: I didn't care for the ribs at the other Central location, too greasy for me. All we hear about is how good this place is. Giving it a second try, the experience was alright. The
food is average and the service is okay. The sandwich was dry, but the sauce was pretty good. There are so many other spots in Memphis to check out. I give it a 3 out of 5.

Diane's Review: Central on Summer was not a real standout. I will just say average and give it a 3 out of 5. One of the things I didn't like was the inside. It was dark and certainly not cheerful. Since we dined outside, it was more pleasant.

Randy's Review: More outstanding than the actual bbq was my birthday celebration. It was celebrated al fresco at Central's suburban location. Nothing to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. I give the sandwich a 3 out of 5.

Have you eaten Fried Chicken?

Yep, this is it, the Best Fried Chicken! Right across the street from what is so far on our tour, the Best BBQ. In Mason TN.

The sign is true...

Do you like how I can pose with a bag of fried chicken?

Yep, pretty much in the middle of nowhere...

Oscar Red Carpet Dresses I didnt like..

I mean this one wasn't so bad, but kinda Star Trek meets the Middle East for me. I'm sure she coulda found something better..

Faith, you are not representing Nashville in a good way. What's up with the lace print pantyhose!?

Her dress was ok..but I had to put her on here bc her skin looked so bad in HD and I love SJP! Come on...would Carrie let that go? Garnier is not working..

Great color, great cut, awful swirly things on the boobs...why would they put those on there? Extra fabric?

Two words..IRON IT!

My Top 4 Faves on the Red Carpet last night..

Love this fit and flare dress on Elizabeth Banks. Love the fit, the color, I just love it all. I could wear this!

Wow, no one ever does a floral or a print, and I love this sweetheart with a gorgeous flare out. The colors are perfect.

I wanna be Demi Moore when I grow up and look like this..this dress matches her skin, and again another fit and flare that I loved.

This could be a wedding dress for the right woman, darn, I already have mine or I might have gone out for this one..good look J-Lo!

Oscar Red Carpet Faves

She so doesn't look like her parents are polygamists here. This dress goes well with her skin and her hair looks great!

She has a fab body and this color is great for her, she looks more grown up than she normally does.

Very flattering for her body, the silver flower accents look great where they are placed.

I am not crazy about the flower in her hair, but it is a tribute, so I can go with it. This shape, cut and color looks great on her.

Wow, I love red and I love this rich red on her, she looks super hot!

I know its a little crazy, different, but I really like it! I like the color on her and the cut of this poufy bottom dress. Reminds me of tissue paper pomanders..
