The $3 Date

Recently a new casino/resort called M opened in Las Vegas. It is on Las Vegas Blvd, but was South on the Strip, intended more for locals, but really knocks the socks off of anything I have seen on the Strip. A very European feel to it, not gaudy and over done like so many others.

When my mom signed up for their "club" they sent her a coupon book. It has coupons for $20 credit at each of their 4 main restaurants and then $10 and $5 off a few others. The coupons expire at the end of the month, so Don and I made a night of of it last week.

Eating appetizers at one place, skipping over for dinner at another and finally dessert at a third restaurant -the whole night cost us only $23 including tips. Luckily they also had a coupon for the pharmacy in the casino as well, so picking up Wyatt's Singular was on the house, saving us $20. The whole night only cost us $3!

It was the most fun Don and I have had in a while. Maybe because we felt a bit sneaky getting so much free food, also because we felt free to order something that we normally wouldn't because it was "free" and last, it was fun to be on the move so much and not just sitting at one restaurant the whole night.

Now we just have to wait for "our" coupon book to come in the mail and do it all over again.
