Legend of Kung Fu Package Deal

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Everyone is Kung Fu Overnightin’- Huh! Come stay at the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing and the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel and see Legends of Kung Fu Show. Wow!  I live three hours from Branson and who would have thought that I would have been writing about Kung Fu Package Deal.  Yes, the reason I write about this is the fact that it is happening at one of my favorite places, Branson, and at one of my favorite places to stay there which is Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing.  Yes, my family thinks that this is a great place to stay in Branson.

Staying at the  Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing while in Branson is a treat.  It is even a greater treat to be able to stay there while enjoying the great things to do at Branson such as the shows and the great attractions at Branson.  Some of the things that we are thinking about trying out this year are things that will appeal to me and the wife such as  the 70’s Supershow feat with The Village People and Lynard Skynyrd and ZZ Top Concert.  How much fun will that be for us old folks.  However, to even it out for the younger generation we will probably throw in something like Silver Dollar City Blue Grass & BBQ and something they always enjoy which is White Water which opens July 1 this year. 

So, fun for the oldies and fun for the younger ones and a Kung Fu Show also.  How can any of this be wrong in Branson.

Something for everyone is what Branson has.  Check it out.

Steak from the Street

I like good steak.  I cook steak on the grill often.  I cook all the way from a flat iron cheap steak to a porterhouse steak.  There is not a steak that I won't cook.

I cook them simple with just seasoning and charcoal or if I am in a hurry I cook them over gas grill.  I sometimes marinade them but mostly not.  How do you cook your steak?

What I want to know is whether or not the street vendor that came down the street almost peddling steaks like an ice cream truck has good steaks or whether they are junk steaks.  I package of good steaks was supposed to be $25.   My fear is the quality.  Sounds like a great price.

Anyone out there ever bought from one of these guys?
