A couple of weeks ago we were invited to The Chamber of Commerce's 'After Hours' where other local businesses get together and have good eats, win some prizes, and mingle.  It turned out to be pretty big, with around 400 attendees...   
It was a good thing it was held at Rocky Gap Casino Resort this month.  They needed the space!

So anyway...  while there we were each handed a coupon for a free dinner at the Lakeside Restaurant there for Wednesday nights only with an expiration date of February 12, so we had to make sure we got in by then.

And so... 

 Tonight we got in the car and headed down that way.  I called on the way, to see if we needed to have a reservation...  and guess what?  They aren't even opened!  So when do you suppose you will be opening, I asked.  Not sure... but sometime in February was their answer.  
So I'm guessing they gave the coupons out to generate business for the casino.  They probably figure that once a person is there and finds out the restaurant is not open they will at least gamble.  

Hmmmmm..

Glad I called first. 

So we ended up eating chinese.

But at least I did not have to cook.


Gracie,  your turn.

Dog food and another lonely night home alone.


Oh...  and a fortune cookie.

Oh! What a racket, I wonder when they will open - end of Feb?
Gracie, at least you got a cookie. I'd like a cookie. What did your fortune say?

Sounds like a bit of a racket going on there. The old bait and switch. Glad you called first. GRACIE dinner looked good. What did your fortune say???

What did your fortune say, Gracie? Weird with the coupon and when it had to be used by. I like Chinese once a year.

Good you called. Samson Says: Gracie, I just loved to look at the pictures of your bored self in the last post. I get sooo bored too sometimes, maybe we should make up some kind of game to play online.
