Every 6 months, Col. Bob and Doug throw a party at the Airport Restaurant in Sedona, Arizona. Carpenter Mike and I were fortunate enough to be invited to the last bash that went on last Thursday night. For those who are not familiar with the restaurant, here is the deal: Every Thursday night you can eat as many King crab legs as you can for $28. Bob starts to look forward to this event as soon as the last one is over. He left on Tuesday so he was certain to not be late for our 1630 reservation time. Mike and I left the following day in the afternoon. Leaving later in the day, we had decided to put miles on and take I-15 to St. George, UT. That is typically not a very eventful ride, so we thought we should start off with a big event at the start of the ride. Mike twisted my arm and we ended up at his favorite Utah dining establishment. One look and you can see how much these visits mean to Carpenter Mike. I had this to smile about. A chili-cheese dog. After all of this excitement and a true culinary experience, we rode through to St. George and tried to fall asleep. We were like kids trying to sleep the night before Christmas. Instead, we had crab legs to look forward to the next day. We decided to put a few miles on the next morning before breakfast. We stopped at the Merry Wives Cafe in Hildale, Utah. Hildale is home to a community where the population practices polygamy. Yes, more than one wife, hence the name of the cafe. We were both surprised by the cafe. I usually order and omelette, and this one was the best one I can remember eating. I ordered peppers in the omelette and was expecting green peppers. Instead of just green peppers, they added red, orange, and yellow peppers. The food was excellent and plentiful, and our total bill for two people came to $10.70. Our young waitress may have been new at the job. When I ordered my omelette, she asked how I would like my eggs cooked. I've never been asked that before when getting an omelette. Since Mike and I had both previously purchased National Park passes, we thought it appropriate to get our money's worth out of the passes by checking out a couple of National monuments. We arrived in Sedona at Doug's estate about an hour before our dinner reservation. Doug and Bob look ready to take on what they have been waiting 6 months for. Finally the first round of crab legs show up and everyone is starting to smile. We all watch Bob to see how to maximize our $28 admission fee. Carpenter Mike looks pleased with how this experience is starting out. Notice the kitchen shears in the foreground of the photo. These are used to cut the shell on the crab leg. The shears really speed of the process of getting the meat out so we can get the most of our investment. An hour or two later and it is starting to get dark. Bob doesn't let that slow him down. This is where I give up. I'm done. Bob keeps instructing the waitress to keep the legs coming. And "more melted butter please". Finally, after dark, Bob gives up. We go back to Doug's to watch a movie. I'm not much for movies. I usually try to sleep through them since they are usually lousy. Doug has great taste in film, and we watch "Little Big Man".
