99 Beers on the Wall at Hops House

Last night my husband and I were treated to dinner at Hollywood Casino‘s newest restaurant, Hops House 99.  It was their Grand Opening!  As we approached the entrance I took a photo…

With 36 HD TV‘s and 99 beers to pass around…you can definitely stay entertained here!  After being seated, we had the difficult task of choosing one of the 99 beers.  We both chose the Bourbon Ale and loved it!  It has over 8% alcohol…so we didn’t have a second.

Boogie Nights and Danny Frazier Band

Saturday evening nine friends and I had a fabulous time at Hollywood Casino’s Boogie Nights and listening to The Danny Frazier Band.  Hollywood’s PR people contacted me after reading my post about a previous evening I spent with a girlfriend at their venue and wanted to treat my husband and I to an evening out with dinner, dancing and an overnight room which we enjoyed a couple of months ago.  I was thrilled when they also offered a VIP room at Boogie nights and a sleeping room for a group of my friends and I.

Here are my gorgeous friends at the beginning of the evening…

Happy Birthday from Hollywood Casino

Birthdays are meant to be celebrated…especially the older you become…because not everyone is fortunate enough to become old!  For my birthday on Friday, I was treated by Hollywood Casino to an overnight stay with dinner and dancing at their beautiful venue in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.  If you’ve been following along, you’ll remember my post here explaining how I received all of this as a complimentary gesture!

My husband and I arrived to our room about 5:00pm and were pleasantly surprised with their simple, but elegant decor!  They recently renovated…

Life is Good

Life is good!  I have so many wonderful things to be grateful for!  I was contacted by the PR for Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana after I marketed a blog post of my visit to their casino onto their Facebook page.  They would like me to be their guest for dinner, dancing and overnight…for both a date night and with girlfriends (up to 10)!  Woo hoo!  So, I’m in the planning stages of that…checking with friends to see when they’re available.  Seems to make you quite popular on Facebook!

And…I’m buying a real DSLR camera in the next few days…a Nikon D-5100 with a 18-200mm lenses!  I’ve been using an Olympus PEN for the last year or two and can’t wait to have a “big girl” camera!

Here are some photos from the last week in my life.  Driving on country roads on my way to the Dirty Girl Mud Run in Clarksville, Ohio at sunrise…

I went to lunch with a girlfriend that I haven’t socialized with in almost 5 years at the Dilly Cafe in Mariemont, Ohio and encountered this very unique individual at the restaurant.  He was conversing with a couple of men and I kindly interrupted and requested permission to take his photograph because of his uniqueness.  Notice the “Pull & Pray” behind him.  He obliged…

The Danny Frazier Band and Sonny Moorman at Hollywood Casino

I’ve been a fan of The Danny Frazier Band for almost 20 years!  They have a Bluesy Country sound that I love!  I’m not a big fan of Country music, but I’ve always loved them!  Anyway…my girlfriend Cindy and I went to hear them play at the Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana Saturday evening and of course I had to take lots of photos.  When I saw all of the mirrors in the bathroom, I knew we had to have some bathroom fun…

A Fantasy Land awaits you at Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana

Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana is a beautiful Fantasy Land, where you can double your money in an instant…or walk away a pauper!  It’s located almost an hour from my home, just across the border of Ohio into Indiana.  I went there on Saturday evening with a girlfriend to see a band that we like.  The last time I visited was almost 10 years ago, when I took my mother.  I’m not a gambler.  I only gambled $1.00 while in Las Vegas back in 2007.  I’ve been taking my camera with me most everywhere I go now…because when I don’t…I wish I had!  I don’t remember Hollywood Casino being this grand or pretty…perhaps they’ve renovated.
