Last week’s Sunday Funday included a family trip to Foxwoods! By family I mean myself, my husband, Tara and her husband, as well as our parents. I wish every Sunday included a trip to the Casino not because I like to gamble (okay I do, a little) but because it’s like a mini vacation and escape from reality! The best thing about going on a Sunday is that it is less crowded, yay for more space at the Roulette table, and rooms are cheaper! I don’t know about you but it seems crazy to stay at a hotel that is less than an hour away but runs between $400- $500 for a Friday or Saturday night. Another cost effective measure, because let’s face it who couldn’t use more money for gambling, food and drinks, is Travelzoo! We purchased a great deal on their website for rooms under $100 a night! Thanks Travelzoo! I am sure most people have heard and used them but for those that haven’t you can find local deals as well as discounts on vacations, hotels, restaurants and entertainment in various cities throughout the world. I have used this site many times and have always been pleased with my purchases. Check out Travelzoo and create an account to receive discounts delivered directly to your inbox! Definitely worth it!
During our time at Foxwoods gambling did take place, I mean it’s hard not too! All the noise and the clinging of slot machines just calls to you – at least to me!
We also ate dinner at Cedars Restaurant. The reviews were mixed – girls liked their meals but guys not so much. My husband and I ordered off the $75 for Two Menu which included a choice of Starter, Entree and Dessert (another cost saving measure = more money for gambling)! Even though not everyone loved their meal the drinks were delicious! As well as the company!
I have to honestly say that the best part of the night was being able to spend time with my family without the stress of everyday life! I am looking forward to planning another getaway soon!
