We walked through the restaurant to a private room just for us.

I sat a few seats away from the lady in charge at this hotel and we got to talking. She is from the Ohio/Michigan Area, not too far from me, so it was neat to talk about local things. I believe she still has grown children living in the area.

We each got a cup.

And our choices for lunch.

Most went with a salad and it did look good. I went with the tacos.

Caitlan had joined us for lunch today too.
I took a really bad group selfie.

We had some appetizers served.

We had a great waiter, but service was really slow. I don’t think it was his fault so much as it was the kitchens. And they may have just wanted it timed slow too since we didn’t have to get on the bus till a certain time.
I got up after sitting a bit and went to the restroom and took some pictures and also went out the side entrance of the restaurant to take a look outside.

Las Olas is a very touristy area with shops and restaurants and bars and this hotel was located right there.

I headed back in and our meals were finally coming out.

I think we were served a dessert as well but I don’t remember what it was and did not take a picture. It was a fun lunch though and so nice to get to know more of the gals.

Before we left, Caitlan gave us some instructions for tomorrow, which was a day with more touristy activities. One being going to a pro hockey game to see the Florida Panthers against Dallas. Something I did not know was that you could only bring in a small purse. Many of us wished we had known this ahead of time as many carried crossovers or a back pack. Caitlan didn’t think my purse would make it in, but I later did go online and looked for the bag dimensions and mine was ok.

After Lunch we were going to look at the pool for Riverside and then head to meet James and our Party bus. We decided to walk around the buildings to take a look at Las Olas.

The pool is across the street.

After a quick look at the pool, we headed over to our party bus and boarded. We were now on to another resort for touring!
