Birthday Weekend at Foxwoods Resort Casino!6:22 PM
As I get older, birthdays have become less about presents and parties and more about sharing new experiences and adventures. This year my birthday fell on a Monday so I opted to celebrate with a weekend trip to Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. It was the perfect way to ring in 27!
The great thing about Foxwoods is that everything is on-site; food, shopping, gaming, everything! Making it the perfect place to escape during these cooler winter months. So after relaxing at the spa we walked back to the room and got dressed for the day. We enjoyed lunch at California Pizza Kitchen and shopping at the Tanger Outlets. We worked up an appetite shopping and ventured to Red Lantern for a sushi dinner. On Friday night's Red Lantern has $50 sushi boats making it an amazing deal for sushi lovers, plus SHRINE is right next door making it the perfect weekend destination for dinner, drinks, and dancing. We spent a few hours at SHRINE before hitting the casino floor and losing a few bucks. I'm not a big gambler, and it was my boyfriend's first time at a casino so it was a learning experience for us both!
I wish we could have spent more time exploring all that Foxwoods has to offer but I had an event in Boston Saturday afternoon so we ordered breakfast in bed (french toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, oh my!) and headed back after check out. We had so much fun we are already planning to head back in 2017. Here's hoping we have better luck at the casino! Looking forward to a Winter escape at Foxwoods Resort Casino!
