    My wife and I live slightly North of Houston, Texas. She doesn't gamble but sometimes accompanies me when I go to the casino. She loves the pools etc. Mostly I go by myself and stay 2 days. I enjoy gambling at LauBerge in Lake Charles but mostly gamble at Coushatta near Lake Charles due to their great comps. I'd enjoy hearing from others who are in the Houston area.

    Howdy from the other side of town

    I'm down here on the Friendswood side of Pearland. Welcome to VMB! The wife and I also like to hit lake Charles but hadn't for the longest time and just recently started making long weekend trips back there again. I haven't tried Coushata yet but I really need to. I hear good things. Untill recently we only ever had offers from Isle of Capri and we've been staying there with our dog. I just started getting offers from L'Auberge so maybe we'll have to leave the dog one weekend (since they don't take them) and check them out since they are a MUCH nicer hotel and casino than the Isle. They are SO TIGHT though!

    Have you ever eaten at Steamboat Bills on I10 in Lake Charles? If not I highly recommend it! There fried seafood and gumbo are both awesome and I love their biscuits. So many people do that they even sell carry out orders of just biscuits.

    Well again, welcome to VMB and a whole slew of fellow addicts.....err I mean enthusiasts :thumbsup:

    Hi there from Hockley, just north and west of Houston. I think you will find this board just as nice as slot fanatics. I loathe that drive on I-10 (and all the cig smoke at LDL), so we usually go to Vegas instead of Louisiana. Welcome to VMB.

    I currently reside in the humid traffic jam known as Houston! I live off the Beltway/290 area.

    I make the trips over to Isle and Lauberge from time to time. I went a lot this past summer but haven't been in a couple months. I've been to Coushatta three times and hate that extra drive time so I end up at Isle and LDL.

    The comps are pretty good for weekend trips and I enjoy the dice dealers at both properties!

    Hi Acklafan - welcome! My husband & I live west of Houston, near Katy. We love LDL because we text our host to make sure we have a room, drive less than 3 hours, gamble all night, lay down for a few hours, then back home again - all in less than 20 hours! It's fun to be spontaneous like that, but we still prefer Vegas!

    Hi from the NASA - Clear Lake area. My husband and mother in law make monthly trips to Lake Charles. I'm not a fan of the cig smoke, so I stay home with the dogs.
    Both hubby and I love Vegas!

    Live in the Heights...I have been going to LDL fairly regularly but they are on a break. Their comps are too "touchy" changing every month...no reward for loyalty win or lose. And so I played on an 8x MyCash day and got $500 in comps when it was all said and done...won $2300... offers declined. Just in time to stop and wait until Vegas in December. :)

    I can't stand the extra drive to Coushatta so to each their own I guess! :)

    Welcome to the boards!
