We spent a few days in the Delta -- Av had some work to do and we wanted to visit friends (plus we had a bat mitzvah to go to), so we stayed the first night at Gold Strike Casino Hotel in Robinsonville / Tunica. The rooms are fine.

We had supper the first night at Doe's Eat Place, Av's favorite steak place anywhere

This time, we sat really close to the stove in the first dining room (if you've never been there, Doe's is in what looks like an old house that used to be a grocery, so the first room you walk in has the equipment to cook the steaks, then the first dining room has - right in the middle of it - a stove for fries and such, and a worktable for making salad)

We order for the table since the steaks are so big, so we all snacked out like hyenas on one huge steak and some fries for the boys.

This one steak was plenty for us all to share

Av had some work to do the next day in Helena, Arkansas, so we walked around downtown some. What a terrific place! There are some shops boarded up and others in poor condition (we went into one store in which a woman fosters animals that's really more of an animal rescue than a store now) but so many fabulous things to look at and shops to go into

King Biscuit Time, the longest-running blues radio show (they're on episode 17k+ now) in the US, is broadcast each weekday at 12:15p at the Delta Cultural Center downtown and they welcome guests.

"Pass the biscuits, 'cause it's King Biscuit Time on KFFA Radio!"

*Must* do that sometime soon with the boys.

This sign in another part of downtown...wha?
Okay, that sounds...  Helena, AR

The J.W. Hall and Company Marketplace was a fun little grocery

More Delta tomorrow, which includes not one, but two nightmare hotel experiences (no, we didn't stay at the Alluvian this time...lesson learned! haha!) and lots more great to see.
