After throwing down my bags I caught a tram over to the Tamahka Trails golf course where I met a group of writers and friendly Paragon marketing and staff members for lunch at the Grill Room inside the club house.
After scarfing down a burger, John and I hit the driving range to warm up before beginning our round of golf. We had a blast playing all 18 holes on a gorgeous day and friendly course. It had plenty of challenges for the experienced golfers with deep bunkers and doglegged holes, but also some open fairways for a novice like me. I actually shot a lot better than I thought I would. After returning to the hotel, I had time to take a quick shower and get back downstairs for what I had really been waiting for: dinner at the Legend's Steakhouse!
Inside the Paragon Casino Resort sits one of the nicest restaurants in Marksville. Legend's Steakhouse features quality cuts of beef and an assortment of other Louisiana cuisine. John and I were joined by Lara from Peter Meyer PR in NOLA, Richella, who works as a PR Specialist at the resort, and a travel writer from Florida whose name escapes me. Our table got started with a some cocktails. Not wanting to order like a normal person, I decided that I'd begin with the signature drink on the menu: the Legendary Dream. While most people wouldn't dare begin their meal with this concoction, I thought it would be appropriate. If it were in Houston it would be simply called the "Dream Shake." It featured Kahlua, brandy, amaretto, dark creme de cacao, and ice cream. It was a damn good $10 milk shake. And rather potent, too.
