Vail - Day 4 (part 2)

Peg and Wade surprised us with a night out at the Game Creek Club Restaurant on the mountain in Vail.  We were also celebrating Dawn and David's hard work and some recent success in their business.  During the day, Game Creek is a private club so only members can stop in for lunch.  It is open to the public for dinner. We left the children with a babysitter and headed to the gondola to go up the mountain.  Then, we had to take a snow cat even higher up to get to the club.

Waiting for our table, we snapped a few pictures which do not do justice to the view.  The sky was clear and gorgeous.  It felt like we could see for miles and miles.

We loved our waiter.  He had a great personality and made fantastic suggestions for us.  Dinner consisted of a prix fixe/ a la carte menu.  Each course was only about 4 oz. of food so just enough to get a good taste, but not so much that we felt stuffed.  We had everything from caviar, sushi and oysters to sea scallops, elk tenderloin and black bass.  We really had a great night!
