Yesterday was my friend Shannon’s birthday so we went out to celebrate! I didn’t take as many pictures as I would have liked, but that was only because I was having lots of fun. Here are a few to document the night:
We all met for dinner at Cafe 668. After everyone arrived, we ordered summer rolls for appetizers then each picked one dish to share.
I didn’t get any pictures of the Depp Fried Banana Shannon and Kelly got but I had a bite and it was really yummy. After dinner, we went to La Paloma Gelateris at Dufferin and St. Clair for some vegan gelato. I cannot believe I lived so close to this place for a year and never knew about it! I had the soy vanilla, but also tried the soy chocolate and soy expresso.
Next up, it was off to the casino! We heading to Woodbine Slots a little after midnight. I’m not a big gambler, so I planned on just playing with $20. On the first 25 cent machine I played, I lost $5. We toured around a bit. Kelly wanted to play on the Glitter Kitty machines, but they were both in use by hard-core gamblers. We even saw the one man win over $900 then keep playing that machine! We played some 5 cent machines and I lost ANOTHER $5. We went on another search and Kelly settled on playing a Miss Kitty machine. There was a free Maltese Fortune machine nearby so I put my $10 ticket in and played.
I won 15 free spins almost right away so I sat back and watched. I can’t recall what I got down to, but when it was over, I had $23.50!
I decided then that I would stop, even though we had another 20 minutes. I liked the idea of leaving ahead, even if it was only by $3.50. I was actually the only one in our group who didn’t lose money!
All in all, it was a fantastic night! Lots of laughs. I need to see those girls more often since it was the first time I had seen Shannon in 3 months! We want to get together for a Cards Against Humanity game night soon!
Have a great weekend!
