Let me just say, Emmanuel is the man. He is the guy you call when you have any questions about anything – he knows where to get the best deals, software, knows everything about cell phones and technology (he is in a special engineering program in the army). In ten minutes after talking, Emmanuel had found us an awesome deal. He found us a “4 Star” all-inclusive hotel with food and alcohol for Thursday and Friday night for 470 shekel (~$130)! We also discovered later that our friend Aliza and her sister Ilana were coincidentally staying at our hotel.
Our 4 Star hotel turned out (unsurprisingly) to not be the nicest of places – the shower just had a soap dispenser on the wall, we may have found an egg shell in a breakfast dish and the wine they served came from a tap – but for the price we paid, it was perfect and what I expected. We dropped off out stuff and hungrily headed to our delicious dinner. After dinner we headed to the hotel girl’s hotel (they booked in one nearby because ours was full-but we worked out with the hotel so they could eat at our hotel), and we went out.
We found our way to the promenade that runs along the beach and went to a popular Eilat nightspot called the Three Monkeys.
The Three Monkeys has an awesome live band and a great atmosphere. As we got in and made our way to a table, the crowd was boogying to Bee Gee’s hits. The music selection combined fun hits of the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today (I know it sounds like a radio station). Here are a few clips from the place – the keyboardist was really talented – she played keyboard, flute and saxophone – during “Tequila,” she walked around the bar playing the sax.
