Tunica, Mississippi

On Thursday afternoon, we headed South to Tunica, MS.  Tunica is a little town that is just about 15 miles south of Memphis.  We had never been before, so we were looking for a fun getaway!  Our birthdays are only 2 days apart, we always try to do a little something for our birthday since it is so close together.

We stayed at the GoldStrike.  It is an MGM resort and I highly recommend it!! The rooms were super nice, clean and the beds slept great!  While there I used the fitness center and it was top of the line with several different machines.  We ate at the Buffet and it was very good.  We had breakfast and brunch there and I cannot complain about anything!  My favorite on the buffet was the pizza.....OMG it was delish!!! And the ice cream!! I had a big strawberry sundae.  And I did a blogger fail...not one picture of any of that food!!!! I was too busy living in the moment!

The Resort we stayed in
Chris did really good on the tables! Normally your odds at winning aren't the best, but he came home with some "chips" in his pocket!!  He hit on 3 numbers on the roulette table and that was a pretty big win!  I pay the slots.  I played for about 9 hours on $20!! I am a VERY cheap gambler! I will not continue feeding the machines.  But I had fun and that is all that matters!!!

Some of his winnings!

On Friday night we drove back into Memphis to eat at Rendezvous!!! If you are ever in the area or reside close and haven't eaten are missing out!!! This is my third time eating there and it was no disappointment! It was delish!!! I had the dry rub chicken and Chris had the BBQ ribs!!! Man I wish I could have some right now!!

Chicken at Rendezvous!

On Saturday we checked out of the hotel and checked out a few others there in the area, and we drove into Memphis to stay Saturday night there.......until my next post, more on Memphis!!!  However I do want to share some pictures that I got as we were coming into Memphis of the mighty Mississippi River!!!! I could look at her all day!
