Club 33 - YIPPIE!!

So, before my friend Krissy blogged about Club 33 back in February, I had NO IDEA what it was.  Well, I read her blog and I was DETERMINED to find a way in.  Amazingly, a few weeks later I received an invitation to join my friends during Disneyland Dumbo Dare Challenge Weekend.  At this time, I didn't know what my travel plans were, and I wavered on confirming my spot.  Sadly, I lost my spot because of waiting.

Fast forward to Saturday afternoon, after I finished the Inaugural 10K (recap on that to come).  I got a message from my friend, that a spot had opened up and I could join the group for Club 33!!!  I was so glad I managed to pack an outfit at the last minute "just in case."

We arrived for our reservation, and were escorted in to the receiving lounge.  Unfortunately, the glass elevator was out of service, but I did manage to get a photo next to it.

Next we were escorted up the stairs and into the dining room.  We were a party of 9, so we had a round table next to the fire place.

Amuse bouche 
We settled in and I started perusing the menu.  There was a prix fix menu option, or you could order from the a la carte menu.  I debated about it, but decided on the a la carte menu.  First, the waiter brought out an amuse bouche - a wafer with chicken and seasoning and a melon shot.  I also ordered a glass of malbec.  Here's the write up of what I ordered, followed by photos:

  • Appetizer: Pacific Coast Clam and Corn Bisque - Buttered Soft Shell  Crab, Manila Clam Corn Salsa, Compressed Melon Salad, Malt Vinegar Reduction
  • Entree: American Kobe Hanger Steak - Mine Shaft Blue Cheese Fritter, Yukon Gold Potato Puree, Chanterelle Mushroom & Buttered Corn
  • Appetizer 
  • Dessert: Banana Cheesecake with Rum Raisin Ice Cream and Fried Bananas


Dinner was amazing!  A few following photos to get a feel for what it was like inside.  For now - I'm giving up trying to make this pretty...

Post-dinner bliss!
Best part of the evening was sharing it with some of my favorite people.  #OriginalCorralG - can't wait for our big reunion at #WineDineHalf - even if that will be celebrated with a grill out in someone's backyard!
