I had the day off yesterday, so a friend and I decided to take a day trip to Caesars AC. We got there around 11:30 am, so we decided to hit the slots before lunch. I played my usual dollar slots and started with the Pretty Princess Unicorn or whatever game, because I won a bunch on it on our visit last month. It hoovered up everything I threw at it. So, I switched to Wild Africa, because I had decent luck on that machine previously as well. No dice on that one either. Unfortunately, luck wasn't with me, so I lost my bankroll pretty quickly. Oh, well. I usually only win once out of every three visits, so I guess there's always next time. I had free buffet passes, so we went there for lunch. Unfortunately, I am on a new fitness plan because my doctor says my cholesterol is way too high, so I couldn't pig out like I usually do. No milkshakes either and they finally had the milkshake machine set up. Oh, how you mock me, Caesars. There is enough variety in the buffet that I was able to stay on my diet and have lots of rabbit food and some lean turkey. Good stuff. After that, we used a GroupOn deal to get tickets for Ripley's Believe It Or Not. Check GroupOn if you are planning a visit, because the current deal is two tickets for $22 (instead of $16.99 per ticket) plus two admittances for their Laser Maze, which is like that laser scene from "Entrapment" where Catherine Zeta-Jones had to step over, slide under, and limbo through laser beams without touching them. That was fun. My friend was also ecstatic over the fact that Ripley's AC has the Fiji Mermaid of P.T. Barnum fame. We got back to Caesars in the late afternoon and I picked up the day's free gift, which was a Brookstone Nap Throw blanket. Nice consolation prize for losing my bankroll so quickly. We'll be heading back to try our luck again on President's Day next month and paying a visit to the AC Aquarium because we have free passes through AAA. If you want free passes and discounts on a bunch of stuff too, visit the tourism booth in The Walk outlets next to the T-Mobile store.
