The 9th annual NICE awards were held on Tuesday night. The Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond was the spot. The committee did a wonderful job keeping the whole gambling theme in perfect design, while Horseshoe’s staff pulled out all the stops. The menu consisted of a BLT Salad, a duet of filet and chicken (It was so much I couldn’t finish) and a perfect chocolate mousse cake for dessert. I again, for the 8th time, was honored with wining this category. I think this now brings my total NICE awards in various categories to 17 wins, and 19 nods. I am always very humbled and honored to be recognized.
