Day 2 part 4 “SAKe SAKe SAKe”We got back to the hotel and headed up for much needed shower. Changed into our best clothes and headed down to Wing Lei. I did not bring my camera for this I felt this was private time and it will be very casual conversation kind of a wind down to the days events. Boy was I ever wrong stupid, stupid, stupid me. I headed down of course like usual early. The wife and Holly went to Rio I was told for all you can eat seafood. I was informed that Chippendales are also there. I was surprised to see Daniel walking in ahead of me he must have a Jetson pipe to this place. The room a circle with inlayed like Jeannie bottle wholes in the walls with curved dragons. Like a place you would put a drunk and tell him to pee in the corner. Dragons adorned the inlays gold plates gold silverware gold chopsticks. The table had a second dolly like spinner I called it the big brother wheel, so you could share entrees on some meals. We used it for an entirely different purpose. We were all seated, well all but one of us who is always late. We did our drink orders Daniel picked a couple nice white and red wines. If he can post what they were because I cannot remember. Talking commenced and entered Chadwick stage left. As usual the last to arrive an make an entrance. Talk got started about what Chadwick did before has anyone guessed because im not going to post it. The waiter came back in and asked Chadwick what he would like and that’s when it went all down hill. HOT SAKI the down fall of society. Hot Sake seemed to raise a few eyebrows people wanted to know what this exotic drink was little Chinese shot glasses were brought in and the saki went on the wheel and around it went for a taste from everyone. So toasts started, I believe Daniels agent started all of this so we can blame him. Toasts for Daniel bringing us here on this event, for his wedding, for his graciousness, and a few others, which were very sincere. But at this point we were toasting with saki and it does strange things to ones mind. I left for a quick break and I hear a roar when I come back out of the room. But lets get this picture, extremely high-class resteraunt. Packed with people in a quiet atmosphere Im walking through and I hear SAKe! SAKe! SAKe! And what sounds to be the opening to the food networks Iron chef. I almost lose it laughing in the middle of the restraint. This is where the night started rockin. The food was magnificent. For appetizers we had hot and sour seafood soup. Very nice not to spicy. Followed up with a baked scallop on roasted tenderloin I believe. The main course this is wear it was a little fuzzy who knows why, fried fish with steak and not sure what else it was very delicious. Saki was flowing wine was flowing and the conversation was amazing. There was a plate of eggplant that wasn’t finished and Chris had an idea. He bet me 100 dollars that I wouldn’t eat it in 2 mins. While I was debating on 3 mins Daniel was pleading with me not to he didn’t want to see me throw up. So I declined, as soon as I did I see the plate wheeling over across the table Chadwick was not going to go he was here for the cash. 2 mins and the clock started. Chadwick was playing with the crowd 30 seconds passed he realized he was more then half done. Faking getting sick to make Daniel squirm. Hell I think it made all of us squirm. Picture this well maybe Chris will post the phone picture spinach and eggplant hanging 2 feet form mouth to plate shoveling it in. He took a little to much time and had 30 seconds left and wasn’t quite done. But he found a second stomach and plowed it home for the win. About this time desert was served I remember coconut ice cream but not much else. Put in front of me was a plate with six quarter size3 wasabi balls Chris quickly scooped it up grabbed a knife and went to work soon he had a McDonalds sized pate of wasbi. 100 dollars he shouted, I think we all cringed everyone was contemplating doing this but no one in their right mind would even think about it. Enter our poor waiter mike who I believe earlier was talked into a couple SAKe shots. Daniel grabbed on this opportunity the price grew to 200, mike wasn’t buying it so Daniel pushed in 500 dollars and laid it on the table in front of him. Half regretting his decision Mike nodded his head. The room cheered. 1 minute to eat I would guess half a pound of wasbi. The word go sounded and the green patty disappeared my god we were all stunned he did it within less then 30 seconds. I’m not saying he did it and was ok this boy was was in some serious hot flashes. His teammate brought in 2 big liters of water and he finished them both off but he had the prize and that’s what counted. Mike is a hero in my book it takes a man to take on wasabi like that. I heard later he was hating life in the bathroom but I think its just rumor. Dinner was a success and it was time to go we decided to hit Le Bete the club of the Wynn. A few people were wore out from the day so we parted ways with a few and the rest drove on to Le Bete.What can I say but first class all the way, if you have ever seen entourage where there in the club at the private table it was better? The room just watches you walk in shouts of Daniel would fill the air if you could hear but the music here was pumpin. We continued on till 5am bringing the house down. We all left and said our final goodbyes at the casino floor for an exciting 2 days that will last in our minds and hearts forever.This is my story I wont trade it for the world. In my opinion this is why Daniel is the best poker player in the world its not only about poker its about the fans who will step up for you. Daniel little brother thank you for the experience of a lifetime. I will treasure it and share with my kids so they can share with there’s and so on and so on. Immortality you have gained.Jason Bo
I miss my life.
