ahhhh. a weekend away.

I took the day off on Friday so Chris and I could go out to Mesquite. We got up fairly early on Friday, played in a poker tournament in the morning and then headed out of town. We got to Mesquite around 2:00 pm and tried to check in to our room at the Oasis Resort/Casino. Our rooms weren't ready so we played in the casino for an hour. At 3:00pm, our rooms were still not ready. Since we had reservations at 4:00pm for a massage, we decided to go to the spa and hang out for the last hour before our treatment. After our massage we hung out in the heated mineral pool which was very relaxing. Since we were starting to get hungry we decided to check in to our room, get dressed and head on out.
The casino has an excellent pizza place built in to their sportsbook. Technically speaking, the pizza place was there first, but who's counting. Sadly, they had removed the dart boards so we didn't hang out there nearly as long as we would have. We shared a great pizza and then hit the casino. We played all evening and in to the early part of the morning and winning a little along the way.

On Saturday, we had reservations at Charmain's. It's a “fancy” steak house inside the Oasis. The prime rib I had was cooked perfectly. We both enjoyed our meals and promptly hit the casinos after we were finished. We played until 2:00 am Sunday morning before hiting the sack. We got up and headed home fairly early on Sunday and that was the end of that.

It was great t get away. I sure hope we get the chance to do that again soon.
