Made it to the casino this afternoon, and had a lovely day. Told the woman at check-in that I was celebrating my 40th birthday and they sent some lovely desserts to our room. Also told the blackjack host that I was celebrating my 40th birthday, and they gave us access to the hotel lounge, where we enjoyed complimentary food and wine. Did you really think that I’d let this momentous weekend pass without trying to get something out of it?
Unfortunately, however, the casino is currently winning, despite the freebies. The afternoon started out auspiciously – I was up $175 playing blackjack. But things went downhill from there and we have some catching up to do.
Tomorrow is a new day, however. And I’m confident that I will not be leaving this place without some cash in my pocket – I have a good feeling about it, really I do.
