Wylde Kingdom Business Meeting: Part 3

So we had the awesome pool party, and between that and the meeting I think we were all pretty wiped.

The accommodations were pretty nice. It was a very comfy bed, and we used the pillows to divide up "boy" and "girl" and "Eris and Sebastian" and "the rest of us" rooms.

Very cozy sleepy time.

Except, I was too wound up to be sleepy. And there's only one thing to do about that.

Go wandering!!! It was about 4 a.m. at this point, so there was no one in the hallways of the hotel. But I knew I'd find people soon enough. You see, where we were staying was...

The Ameristar Hotel and Casino in Blackhawk!

So I figured, casino would mean "City That Never Sleeps" right? Yeah... not so much. There were a few people around, but mostly it was the "City That Kind of Snoozes Occasionally". Maybe I caught it during a catnap.

It's a pretty neat place, but it was super chilly outside. So I took my $50 (human money even!) and wandered inside to do some "investing".

They're all decorated for the Chinese New Year. Couldn't hurt to stop by for some luck, right?

Quick stop by the good luck Buddha too. People had thrown change all around the base of the statue and on the floor. Maybe I should have too, now that I think about it....

Even if you're not 5" tall (like me) this place is HUGE. There were so many slot machines to play!

I opted for one with a cute corgi dog in goggles. I dunno, it was something science themed and kind of cute.

But it didn't go so well, and I was starting to get a little sleepy (finally) so I headed back upstairs.

And, in retrospect, I kind of think I could have invested that $50 differently. Maybe I should've talked to a banker or something. Hmm.

Anyway, it's a pretty cool casino, even if I didn't win millions.

Next blog entry, I'll tell you about the rest of the business meeting!

  1. My slot machine investments always seem to turn out the same way...

  2. Wow, I go to the 'big city' and end up in flower gardens. You're very brave, Miri!

  3. Looks like all had a great time. Somehow I knew you would go exploring after everyone was asleep. LOL!

  4. Hello from Spain, i like your pics. Los of fun. Keep in touch
