Today we opt for a day at Sam's Town, the casino next to us - it's like a big town of its own with restaurants, bars and a huge hotel. They have live music but it's pretty weak country stuff - not our thing but definitely interesting.
We have an $80 budget tonight so go straight to the bar to play their video black jack at 25 cents a bet - and the drinks are free!!! This doesn't bode well - but it keeps us there! A few hours later we're having a great night chatting to locals and getting drinks still with over $40 left! A barman comes on duty around 8pm and stamps his feet telling everyone they won't get drinks unless we have a certain minimum bet. It's fair enough we've got away with it long enough but he's pretty rude about it so a few of us walk away. Off to see some awful country music opposite and we soon tear ourselves away via subway. It's been fun.
