Our delicious lunch: Beef, Chicken, and Pork Empanadas with Salad and Guacamole with Fried Plantans. mm!Here is D in front of the pretty casino Christmas tree. Look at the ceiling. Isn't it cool?
Ok, so D gives me $20 to gamble with... In this picture I am smiling and holding up my ticket because I am "up" $.50....welll...that did not last long. Soon my $20 was gone and the gambling bug had bit. uh oh!
We left the Tropicana and headed over to Caesar's. D gave me another $2o. So here I am with my second $20. Wish me luck!
Well the second #20 went down the drain just like the first $20, at which point D is laughing at my disappointment, so I challenge him to do better. Here is a picture of me dumbfounded at D because he took $5 and turned it into $100!!! What the heck!! He has to be the luckiest guy EVER!! D quickly cashed out....ignoring my vain requests for him to "just try one more time!"On the very top floor of Caesar's Palace is an indoor beachfront, complete with sand (that will be in my black shoes from here to eternity) and beach chairs.
I discovered scratch off cards at the gas station.
It's just as fun as instant BINGO because you know right away if you've won anything and you don't have to wait for church festivals. It's like a church festival all year round! I kept asking D, "Do we have these in Ohio? Really? Why didn't you tell me!? This is fun!"
I won $4, so we had to venture out of my aunt and uncle's nice warm house to a gas station to redeem my prize....at 11:30pm
D says I am not aloud to play scratch off cards in Ohio. Only in New Jersey.
but it's soo fun!
