    I knew a wrestler by this same name. Sadly, when his special move, “Hug of a Thousand Needles,” proved a little too effective, he was forced to become the markedly less fearsome “Satin Willow.”

    If you're into sipping tequila, this is a great place to go. We recommend trying a tequila flight, and if you're feeling adventurous, the pomegranate margarita is to die for.

    Fantastic food and service. Try the fajitas. Next time going to try the lobster tacos. Cold salsa better than the warm.

    For lunch, the buffet-style restaurant upstairs will get you food faster, but the restaurant-style downstairs is better. Try the fish tacos.
