Yesterday we drove over to the casino to see what its 500,000 sq. ft. looks like…yes, 500,000 sq. ft. It is H-U-G-E!!!!! I swiped this photo from Yahoo images.
Being a “world” casino the space is segmented into different countries…there was Beijing, Vienna, Paris, New York, etc. The restaurants in those area reflect the area so there was a very pretty outside café with the iron railing and all. No photos to share as you know you can’t take pictures inside a casino.
They have attendants with clipboards stationed about every 50 feet to answer questions or give directions….very nice touch.
We went early because on Wednesdays and Thursdays they provide a free breakfast to all seniors….and this breakfast costs $15.99 on other days. No, it wasn’t a crappy, cheap version of the original…it was very good…and you know I’m picky. No paper plates and plastic forks…they had real plates, cloth napkins, etc. There was the usual scrambled eggs, sausage patties, cottage fries, but also a nice roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, great Danishes, an omelet station, milk, orange juice and coffee….but they also provided several flavored creamers. I was impressed!!! Oh, and they had a band and singer who played all the 50’s and 60’s songs.
We all had to laugh at Jim because at one point he said…seriously I might add….“It’s really surprising that the band is playing all those old songs…I wonder why?” Dah, because there are all these old people here. [Since it was senior day they played the 50-60 music all through the casino all day] I counted and they had it set up to serve 800 people at a time in the big event hall, and they turned those tables over several times from 7-11 a.m. It would be interesting to find out how many people they did serve.
We played the slots a little with Linda being the big winner making $30. We went home about noon and relaxed after all that walking. But I must say, Winstar World Casino is one of the nicest casino I’ve ever been in…yes, including Vegas.
Happy hour at 4 p.m. and then we enjoyed a wonderful corn and crab bisque that Jim Mossman made. It was a real keeper. He was trying to duplicate a dish Linda loved having at the Riverside Inn in Abbeville, LA and she said he nailed it.
Today we are washing our rigs and cleaning our windows using a “recipe” we found on Facebook that you don’t have to dry off….we’ll see…I’ll let you know how it worked out.
Remember, you are loved.
