Episode 25- Finally Fountainbleau

Drink of the Day - The Miami Cocktail (A drink that seems to have been invented by the Cointreau company- at least, I can’t find an origin story)
1 ounce Contreau or the orange liquor of your choosing

  • 1.5  ounce light rum 
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed

Shaken and strained

Bill’s take on FBLV
Super comfortable bed
Good service
Great bars
Mother Wolf

Last Q- do you recommend FBLV and, if so, to who? 

Super Expensive

  • $180 spa day pass on a Wednesday
  • No 3/2 Blackjack for less than $50 Wednesday mid-day
  • $15.50 slice of pizza
  • Super-expensive steakhouses

One other problem– it was pretty far away from everything, and the sidewalks aren’t set up well.
