A Trip to the Nifty Nuthouse

Posted on September 19, 2009 by under Food and Drink, Poker, Wishlist.    


Brian’s coworkers Lance and Alicia joined us for lunch at My Tho the other day. Guess what is just around the corner from My Tho? Yup. You guessed it! The Nifty Nuthouse!

Since we got done with lunch pretty quickly and had fifteen minutes to spare, the four of us decided to stop by the Nifty Nuthouse on the way back to work. Alicia had never been there before.

SIDE NOTE: Kudos to My Tho for their promptness. Lunch was super quick. It seemed like within a couple of minutes of ordering, our server was back with our meals. Brian was surprised at how quickly our food was ready. I wasn’t surprised, though. I swear. I think they have vats of soups already pre-made and ready to go in the kitchen. =P

I’m actually glad that lunch was quick because we wouldn’t have had time to stop in at the Nifty Nuthouse otherwise. It is one of my favorite places to get chocolates. My other favorite place is Cocoa Dolce, but we only go when we feel like splurging (which we haven’t done lately). Cocoa Dolce artisan chocolates are pretty expensive. Your money goes a longer ways at the Nifty Nuthouse. Not to say I don’t love Cocoa Dolce because I do. They have fantastic truffles! But the Nifty Nuthouse is a good place to satisfy those chocolatey cravings on the cheap.

Brian loves their double-dipped chocolate-covered peanuts. I like their chocolate covered-pretzels. I got some to bring to poker and share with everyone. Brian got a pound of his double-dipped chocolate-covered peanuts, but he doesn’t like to share so he kept his at home.

Incidentally, I cashed in the home game at Uncle Roy’s on Thursday night. I think it was because I shared my yummy chocolate-covered pretzels with everyone and wasn’t being greedy. Further proof of my theory that the more you give, the more you get. It’s all about cultivating good karma. LOL. So much for poker skills, huh? =P

They were all still playing poker when we left (a cash game had started after enough people were knocked out of the tournament) so I just left the chocolate-covered pretzels with them. Rod seemed to really like it.

Anyway, it’s a shame that I didn’t have enough good karma to carry me through to today’s poker tourney at Harrah’s. Brian and I totally sucked. Well, we didn’t really suck but the cards sure did. The cards were just rotten. I have some theories about doing well at Harrah’s, too. More on that later.

For now, head over to the Nifty Nuthouse and satisfy those chocolate cravings!
