Playing in Park City

Posted by on April 17, 2008 at 10:35 pm :: 4 Comments

Last Saturday Team Evil was not scheduled to play. Jason and I decided that since we didn’t have a soccer game it was the perfect opportunity for us to make a little getaway. After some debate, we ended up going to Park City. We stayed in Midway, which is about 15 minutes from Park City, at the Zermatt Resort and Spa. It got better reviews than most of the hotels in Park City so we thought we’d give it a try. The resort turned out to be quite nice. My only complaint was that our room was a little small. But the hotel was clean and the décor was tasteful and fun with a Swiss theme.

Jason and I spent most of our time shopping at the Park City outlet stores, wandering around Wasatch Mt. State Park, and playing games at the resort. I think it’s important to note that Jason not only lost to me at checkers on the giant outdoor checker board, but also got creamed at shuffleboard. His main, or I should say only, tactic playing shuffleboard was trying to hit my pucks and nock them out. He continued to use this as his only maneuver even after he lost to me over and over again. Didn’t someone once say insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results? Hmmm…makes you wonder. We both got a good laugh over how miserably he lost every game.

We had a great time and plan on heading back to Park City for another weekend getaway sometime in the summer.

I should also add, for any of you who are considering going to Park City to dine, there are a lot of magnificent restaurants there but you should be aware that they all close at ridiculously early hours. Jason and I were both stoked about trying some great food at a new restaurant only to find that they all closed at 9 0’clock, even though it was the weekend. So we were unfortunately too late to partake. Even one place claiming to be a happening restaurant and nightclub closed at 10:00. A nightclub that closes at 10? Shouldn’t they call it a dayclub then? Pathetic. So keep that in mind, all you gourmet food seekers.

    Wow, you two had a ton of fun. I love the checker board and the chess pieces. Unfortunately, now back to reality and all that fabulous gardening.

  • Rachel says:

    Yes, lots and lots and lots of gardening. We planted 20 shrubs this week. The yard is starting to look good!

    I’m inspired- I’m going to take a few days off next week and head to Park City. I’ll have to come check out your yard too. I just don’t get over to “that” part of town much, if you know what I mean. Ha ha.. totally kidding. I’ll bet you guys are glad you’re not getting our mega road, eh?

    Right Cam, do you ever take a few days off from work?

    Mega road? Are ya’ll getting a mega road? Apparently I’m behind the times. I don’t know anything about a mega road.
