Another weekend in AC

Well, this time I went to AC for a much needed "girl's weekend." No monetary goals in mind, other than using my winnings to have a little fun. I played again in the midnight bounty tournament at Harrah's. Made the final table, but ended up going out ninth.
Of course, no money for this, although I *did* get $30 of my $70 entry back in bounties. Then, I went to the $1/$2 no-limit table and managed to win a couple hundred. Sounds good, but I promptly wasted it all on my weekend! My winnings paid for Friday & Saturday night in a 1 1/2* hotel, 1 $40 buffet at Harrah's, 1 knock off coach wallet, 1 bottle of perfume, 2 bottles of wine, a $30 dinner at a gluten-free Italian place, various McDonald's/Wendy's trips, 4 new shirts from Lane Bryant & Ashley Stewart, a tank of gas and a partridge in a pear tree :P My only expenses were a one hour massage and some tolls for the weekend, so basically mission accomplished. I felt relaxed and refreshed when I got back!


  1. Is the Harrah's buffet $40 on weekends now? That seems excessive. By the way, you can get a Harrah's buffet comped if you earn, I believe, 50 points on Monday and Thursday. This is really easy to d; takes about 45 minutes of $0.25 video poker. You can do the same thing at Showboat on Wednesdays.

  2. It was $32 plus tip I believe. Yeah - I saw that on the sign - killer deal. Too bad I'm never there on week days. Work and all.
