We made an unexpected weekend getaway to celebrate. We drove down to Tunica, Mississippi. It's about 7 1/2 hours.
We stopped in Memphis to eat at Marlowe's. It was a restaurant featured on Drive In's, Diners, and Dives on the Food Network. It was about a mile from Graceland.
The food was good, but service was slow, so it kind of took away from the fun.
We drove the last 30 minutes to our hotel. We stayed at The Roadhouse. It was a small hotel & casino. It was a nice place to stay. For some reason it wasn't very busy, but we didn't mind that.
The Roadhouse is also walking distance from the Gold Strike and The Horseshoe.
Saturday we got up and drove to the Hollywood Casino to play poker. It's right near Sam's Town and Resorts.
We got in a 3-6 limit game. This allows you to play for hours without ever losing a lot. We both were able to win some money.
I think we were the youngest at the table by about 45-50 years!
It was a short getaway weekend, but well worth it. It's always refreshing to get away and enjoy time together!
Until next time,
