My love affair with San Manuel started back in 2002 when San Manuel became the Hero in an awesome story with a co-worker - we'll call him Steve. Steve and I worked together in Anaheim and commuted from the IE right after I graduated from College. One day we hit up a happy hour when I was the driver for the day...we had a few pops...he had a few too many and I was trying to drive him home...he flat out refused. I dropped him at his car at our meeting point thinking he was going to chill for a while....he did not I would find out later. I went home and went to bed. I woke up to 25 voicemails starting at 11p. The First was Steve's wife: 'Hey Checking in if you guys are working late or went out for a few...haven't seen Steve yet.' A half hour later - Steve's wife again - 'starting to get worried.' Then a few from co-workers - 'Hey just heard from Steve's wife, she's looking for you and Steve are you okay?' To eventually the boss: 'Guys it's 2am where are you? We are all starting to get worried about you...we are calling hospitals...please call us.' Steve's wife again this time in tears...'where are you?' You get the point. The last call was Steve: 'Hey its 5am I'm home. Sorry everyone was worried." Turns out he drove to San Manuel and won like 5K at the tables. He was in the doghouse...but got himself out of it by winning...Crazy. I was asleep the whole time. Still a story that is told in certain circles to this day. The names are changed to protect the not-so-innocent, but what a wild night
Naturally, I had to check the place out the next day and went for the first time. Had fun playing slots, ate at the buffet and had a few cocktails watching some playoff hockey on the TVs. I think I may have broke even, but had a good 5-6 hours of entertainment on a random Saturday in May.
Then I hadn't been here for about 10 years or so until they started doing the special nights at the Pines with Dodgers, like Steve Garvey, Tommy Lasorda etc. I started going to those when I was with FOX and Monica of course has a relationship with the Dodgers and I was hooked. A good steak, good wine menu, good cocktails - world class entertainment and that is not even including the gaming.
I always have a blast whenever I go and now that I am back in the IE - I am there regularly. Love the place.
