We Struck Gold!

My birthday is TOMORROW, but naturally I believe in celebrating a full birthday week so the festivities began last Saturday morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

Steak, crab legs, giant shrimp, garlic mashed potatoes, sirloin mac & cheese, red beans & rice, sushi, pizza, shrimp lo mein, sugar free chocolate cake, and sugar free cheesecake. Oh my yum. The quality of this food is so far beyond “buffet” food… it’s just incredible. I cannot say enough good things about this place. This is our third time to eat at a casino buffet and while they have been good every time, the Buffet Americana at Gold Strike blew away the competition. So delicious!

casinoGold Strike offers “freeplay” to first timersย which means that they give you free money to use on the slot machines. They gave usย $30 so we took full advantage of their smoke free second floor and played the penny slots.ย ย ๐Ÿ™‚ We won $29.60 overall and had so much fun with it! Which means that if we’d been spending our own money we would’ve actually lost 40 cents over all, haha! But since we didn’t have to spend anything, it was all great winnings! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you ever been to a Casino (to eat or play)?
