Last week, I was lucky enough to attend the sneak peak of the Horseshoe Casino that opened last night in Cincinnati. My dad was out of town, so my mom and I went down to be part of the action. We got there 30 minutes before the doors opened, and there was already a line outside. It took us an hour to get inside and start gambling. They were only letting people use one elevator because the lobby was so clogged with people! Once we finally got to the lobby to check in, there were hundreds of people shoved together waiting in line. Being stuck in a windowless space with tons of people for a half hour caused some major anxiety. I distracted myself by looking through my iPhone the whole time.
Once on the gaming floor, it was amazing. I’m not a big fan of card games (because I don’t understand them), so I immediately headed for the slots! Long story short, I didn’t win any money that day. Like most people, I’ll be doing really well and then get cocky and say “just one more spin”, and quickly one spin turns to many spins, and my money is gone before I know it. Luckily, my bad mood was gone the second I went to Bobby Flay’s restaurant in the casino called Bobby’s Burger Palace. I don’t eat meat, but they had an amazing grilled cheese sandwich which was accompanied by a side of fries. My only disappointment was that Bobby Flay himself wasn’t there to serve me my food. My mom and I love Bobby Flay! Anytime he’s on the Food Network I have to watch. I love his personality, and his great cooking skills pretty much make him the perfect man 🙂
I’m excited to go back to the casino now that it’s open to the public, although I may wait awhile since it’ll probably be insanely crowded the next month! Maybe you can relate, but every time I’m at the slot machines I’m secretly thinking of hitting the jackpot so I can go on a major shopping spree.
