Still sassy funny and fiesty after all these years
Introduction
Born and raised in beautiful McCall, Idaho, my mountain life shaped me for my future. Lived in Utah, started our family there. Raised my children in Elko, NV where they learned to be honest, hard-working, fun-loving, self-sufficient, stand up for what they believe in, and value freedom. Spent an adventurous-disastrous school year in Alaska, 8 miles above the Arctic Circle. Brought my mountain roots and country girl ways to Sin City- that crazy city in the damn desert, a desert which possesses a mystique and stark beauty and a whole new definition of survival. In between Idaho and Las Vegas I earned a lifetime of experiences and a few gray hairs.
Bragging rights
Married the love of my life for 33 years; raised 5 perfect kids; have 13 grandkids; earned 4 college degrees

Love the reclining seats and attached snack trays. It's easy to get tickets - online, or express kiosk, or traditional get in line, and there are employees at almost every ticket window so your wait in line isn't very long. Theaters, snack bar and bathrooms are very clean. Love how the ushers come in and give a live spiel about turning off cell phones and they mean it! My only complaint is that the snack bar is so expensive, but it is that way in every theater I've been to. We like this theater so much that it's hard to enjoy other theaters!

service is horrible! we've been here 4 or 5 times, it's closer to where we live, but the servers and captains ignore you when you walk in to the bar, take over 10 minutes to get around to asking what you want to drink, act like you're asking something outrageous when you want to order food. after today when we were treated so rudely, we'll never go back. there's another BWW near Centennial and the 215 that's so much better!

we come here frequently, at least 2-3 times a month, the minute the servers see us walk in they're pouring our favorite drinks and hand them to us as we're sitting down at the bar. the captains are great, they know what we like, and they're good at suggesting new flavors to try on our wings. this is much better than the BWW on Craig Rd which is actually closer to where I live. we love this place.
