Re: Anyone At Catalina Island, Dana Point?

Chef,

I was referring back to your video posting as the setting is in a cold environment and sarcastically questioning the origin or Las Vegas seafood. I do recall on one occasion a girl friend asked me about the seafood at the Bellagio and I managed to convince her that the establishment had there very own underground man made ocean and that they grew tuna in droves! How else would it be possible to offer unlimited crab cakes in the buffet for such a premium rate?

Even pregnant woman have to go over to have their babies.

Could you specify how these women you speak go about getting impregnated? and when breeding season begins?


Enhydras,

I actually have a live app of all my favorite sailing destinations and did note Catalina in the 40's, I thought it was a error as the mountains and other out of season harbors were 10 degrees above.

Do you have a permanent residence there/boat? I read some time ago that the next motor vehicle allowed on the island was on hold for ten years.






I really appreciate the substance you sailors have added to the thread, anyone know if buffalo burgers are still offered on the island?




I'll post images when I make the trip for you boys with a few surprises.......,

You must have been referring to Mustangchefs video

The Bellagio deals with large purveyors in Venezuala and Southeast Asia as many of the large commercial casinos do world wide and get a set price on tractor trailor loads of flash frozen crabmeat..thats how they can offer unlimited on buffets.

My statement about pregnant women going to the mainland was in reference to pointing out that the medical facilities on catalina Island are very limited to where pregnant women must go to the mainland to give birth in a hospital. One of the full time residents explained to us that most people there have expensive health care insurance to get the helicopter rides over in cases of medical emergency. NOt realy sure about your breeding comment:co nfused:

Chef,

All in good humor, I suppose sarcasm is difficult to convey over text. Although the insurance note is useful advice, as I hold first hand experience on how much those helicopter rides can cost via a Utah hiking mishap.



Mary Anne and Ginger never managed to give birth and they were on that dreadful island for a full ten seasons =)
