The Bachelor is back! Did you care that he was gone?

The Bachelor: Brad Womack
Does anybody watch The Bachelor anymore?

That's what I wondered to myself when I received an invitation to attend the season premier at Bailey's Prime Plus Steakhouse in Park Lane.

The invite went on to proclaim, "The Bachelor is Back! Join blogger Reality Steve (pictured below) and Tanner Pope from Season 5 of "The Bachelorette" for a season premiere party of ABC's "The Bachelor" at Bailey's Prime Plus Dallas at The Shops at Park Lane.

Enjoy half-priced specialty cocktails including Bailey's Cosmotini, the Coco Chanel, Cucumber Martini, Bailey’s Mojito, Rootbeer Float and Passion Star Martini, half-priced house wines, domestic beers and well drinks."

You had me at "half-priced cocktails" ...  I had the Bailey's Cosmotini, which is a bubbling concoction that looks like witch's brew. I had it last time I was here for the Park Lane Mom Blogger Event. Click to watch the video. This drink is AMAZING.

Well, apparently, a lot of people still care about this show because there was a fine looking crowd at Bailey's last night.  I ran into fellow blogger, Farah Fleurima aka The Dallas Diva at the bar. Like any good blogger, she was trying to balance her drink and handbag with one hand and take pictures with her camera in the other.

Were some of them there (like me) for the drink specials and great people-watching? Probably, but it was still a fun night at a great bar.  And hey, as far as I'm concerned, there just cannot be enough reality TV on air. They don't call it the boob tube for nothing!
