Since the weather was so nice on Sunday, we decided to head in to Old Town for dinner at a place we hadn't tried yet, the Sonny Lubick Steakhouse.
Sonny Lubick is a local sports legend guy, as he took the CSU Rams to multiple championships during his tenure as Head Coach. He took a very losing college football team, and turned it into a powerhouse, winning six conference championships, and taking the Rams to NINE college bowl games.
I'm not into football at all, but he did a hell of a job, and is a well respected guy.
Anywho......I had the 6oz filet, and my wife had the surf and turf.
The food was outstanding, and my steak was the best one I've had since we moved here. My baked potato was perfect, and the salad was made at the table from a cart where you could get various toppings and veggies added if you wanted.
The service was excellent, and hit that "Just Right" balance between hovering over you, rushing you, or ignoring you. The courses appeared at just the right time, the staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the manager even dropped by to say hello.
We'll definitely being going back, and we now have another 'favorite restaurant' added to our small but growing list.
One thing we noticed as we walked back to the Jeep was several restaurants had "Closed For SuperBowl Sunday" signs in their windows, which probably explains why Lubick's was relatively empty.
And after we got back home, we fired up the home theater gear and watched "First Man", a movie about Neil Armstrong, but nothing along the lines of "The Right Stuff".
The movie starts with Armstrong's days at Edwards when he was a civilian NACA/NASA pilot flying the X-15, and progresses through the Gemini Program, and ends with him in quarantine after returning from the Moon.
It's about as "personal" a movie as I guess you could make about Armstrong, who was a quiet, private guy, and frankly, I'm not sure what to think about it.
It was an "OK" movie, but the characters just seemed 'wooden', like they weren't sure how to play their parts.
Overall, I'll give it 3-1/2 stars on the ratings chart. Good, but probably wouldn't watch it again.
