My GF and I both own our own business. I'm a real estate appraiser and she is a florist. We live in a summer resort area and are typically really busy this time of year. I'm busy on the weekends because that is generally the only time that I can get into the beach rental houses to do my inspections, in between renters. When you are paying a few thousand to rent a house for a week, you don't want to bother with a real estate appraiser coming by to take a picture of the bathroom with all of your toiletries. My GF is busy on the weekends with weddings. For the last week, her kid has been out of town at his grandparent's house. This doesn't happen often, so we try to take advantage of it. We decided to find a quick trip somewhere. We didn't want to go to Vegas because the flight is just too long. Six to eight hours of flight time, plus an hour and a half to just drive to the airport. We decided on Mississippi or maybe New Orleans. I checked the Harrah's Air website but the flight schedules haven't been updated in a few months. I checked the airlines to see if there were any good deals on flights but didn't find anything really appealing. I started looking at the flight junket company websites. I found a trip to Beau Rivage but it was on a Delta flight that would have cost $500 for each of us. No thanks. I called another company and they had a Tunica trip for $279 total. We talked somebody into delivering the flowers to the wedding on Saturday and talked somebody else into watching the puppydog. Booked! Yay! The flight left from Richmond which is about 3 hours away. It left on a Saturday which is the main change-over day, so I needed to leave early to beat that traffic too. We woke up at butt:30 in the morning and headed out! The chartered flight (Allegiant Airlines) was about 45 minutes late, but we were totally entertained by a couple of older women that were ready to party! The flight finally left Richmond and landed in Roanoke about 25 minutes later to pick up more passengers. A long haired guy in his late 40s or early 50s sat across the aisle from me and kept me pretty entertained for the next hour and a half to Tunica. On the ground in Tunica, the flight attendants told us to cross the seatbelts on the seats when we get up. Then they told us again. They told us a few more times. They kept telling us to do it over and over. It became the joke of the weekend whenever I would run into somebody from that flight. Several times I would hear somebody shouting at me from across the casino, "Cross your seatbelts!" We didn't get our hotel assignments until we land and get off the plane. I had begged and pleaded for a room at the Roadhouse or Horseshoe so I didn't have to deal with the shuttle system. If I had to have the Veranda or Terrace, I asked for the Terrace so my shuttle to the casino was at least the first hotel stop. So of course I get the Veranda. Oh well. The Veranda has decent rooms so I can live with it. We decide to hang out in the room for an hour or two until the luggage arrives, then hit the hot tub before we go eat. It finally arrives so we sit in a luke warm hot tub for a few minutes until a family decides to let their kids do laps. I think we were both run over a few times by these kids in the hot tub. We left, time for food. We caught the shuttle to Harrahs. We really weren't hungry enough for a buffet and didn't want anything upscale, especially since I only brought a pair of flip flops and a few t-shirts with me. We decided to hit Toby Keith's I Love this Bar and Grill. Nope, they closed that place down. They said it wasn't busy enough to keep it open. I have to call BS on that, but whatever. I guess it's down to the food court. We thought about taking the shuttle to Roadhouse, but I was starving and didn't want to have to wait 15 minutes for a shuttle, then 10 more minutes to the Roadhouse, then however long to get seated/served. Fuddruckers it is. Since we had $300 in reward credits between the two of us from the Great Escape, we really didn't plan on spending any money for food. I ended up paying for the burgers since I just can't justify letting Fuddruckers charge me 200 points per dollar. To top it all off, the Fuddruckers had a sanitation rating of B.
