Great start. We were at the Royal from 4/11 - 15, so we just missed you. I got a kick out of the picture from Pelicano's as we were sitting there on Wednesday, 4/14, around 11:15 am, when all hell broke loose with the weather. It rained pretty hard that afternoon. Everyone was moving their tables closer into the middle of the restaurant, as the rain was coming in from the sides.
The staff at the Royal was great. Next time you're in town, check out the Dirty Martini. It's a great little place with some fantastic martini's.
