Divas Tapped Out with Mediocrity But Sometimes Average is Outstanding

**Lisa Kampeter photo** revisedThe Dining Divas

By Lisa Kampeter

It’s not uncommon for the Dining Divas to have supper together and not be wowed by the restaurant. Quite often, the Wise Choice Divas find dishes they love while the Too-Afraid-to-Try-Outside-the-Box Divas aren’t impressed with what they picked. It’s hit or miss.

Not only did we get a large room with two king beds and a refrigerator, but the Courtyard adjoined the Ritz Carlton and we were able to enjoy some of its amenities, as well.
