The Power of Yes

Despite my disappointment a week ago with the Blue Chip Casino representative who found a sure-fire way to forfeit hundreds of dollars in revenue in order to save two, I found myself visiting William B's Steakhouse again on Friday.

You see, William B's is a tough place to feel compelled to boycott in order to get through to the occasionally short-sighted accounting types of a business. From the fabulous food, brilliant bartenders, and super servers all the way up to Patrick Cullars, the general manager, there's plenty to miss.

Although the dining area is high class and rather "chill", we really love eating at the bar, which is located just off the casino lobby in such a way that one feels they're at a busy crossroads of "it takes all kinds" incarnate. It's a great place to people watch, and those drawn into the bar and dining area itself tend to be interesting and receptive to striking up a conversation.

We each had the perch specials. Mine was pan-seared, while my partner's was sautéed. Both were spectacular, with delicious accompaniments of fingerling potatoes and green beans. Looks like I'll have to start my diet all over again, because it was a feast, especially on top of the great bread basket that begins one's dining experience.

Patrick's philosophy is "the answer is *yes*", and it's from that seed of enablement that all the rest of what makes William B's so special flows. If you've yet to experience the complete dining and drink experience of William B's, make it a priority. But be aware that you'll likely wind up with an addiction for which there is no 1-800 number: an addiction for the finest dining and drink experience smart money can buy. While you might enjoy the thrill of risky behavior on the casino floor, William B's isn't a gamble - it's a certain, satisfying jackpot every pull.
