Weekend lessons

Things I've learned this weekend:

1) Dinner for two at the tapas restaurant at Meritage — even if you just order a small-plate and your wife orders a single tapas and you share one bottle of wine — can be expensive. But it's worth it. (Stick to the tapas, though)

2) Once of the hidden danger of surprise parties is that the surprisee has no idea that she shouldn't get completely ripped the afternoon before the party.

3) Winning about $1,200 in chips by drawing a royal flush* is one of the world's most sublime joys.

* Actual odds in Texas Hold 'Em: 1 in 649,740
