Saturday night, 15 of us went downtown to Lumiere to take advantage of our free buffet tickets that we had won at the Blues game for Bob’s birthday some months back. We all agreed (the girls agreed actually) to dress up in our pretty clothes and make it a nice evening out.
Woo-hoo! Check out these handsome men!
These are some HOT ladies!
On a Saturday night at the casino, I assumed that there would be quite a wait, especially with such a large group. Surprisingly, we only had to wait about 15 minutes before getting seated. I thought the buffet was nice, I couldn’t tell if it was smaller than the one at Harrah’s because of the set up (but I think it is). I guess I wasn’t wowed by the spread, I’ve seen better but free was free and what I got was pretty good. I didn’t want to eat too much or else I would have gone into a food coma, I needed to be slightly coherent while gambling.
After dinner, we headed over to the casino for some gambling and drinking. I had never been to Lumiere before and I was expecting it to wow me since it’s promoted as a fancy casino. I wasn’t too impressed. I guess you find the same people in any casino and it makes you want to punch them. The cocktail waitresses had on these tiny dresses, the front was held together by some fancy buckle. Very slutty. Now I can understand why there is a weight stipulation when applying for a job there. Katie and I weren’t in the mood to gamble so we wandered around the place, checking things out. We went out on to the rooftop bar which was awesome! They had comfy lounge seats, with big cushions out surrounding various fire pits. The set-up reminded me of the Arizona Biltmore. You got this fantastic view of the Arch, it was pretty neat. We also took a stroll around the casino and realized that it’s not that big at all. So, I guess all the fluff about this place is really about the Four Seasons.
It was a fabulous time seeing all of our friends snazzied up and hanging out together. I’ll have to find another excuse to have the group dress up again in the future.
