Quick West Wendover Trip 8-11-2013 + Foodie Pictures

Shari and I decided to make a quick day trip out to West Wendover, NV for an afternoon of gambling fun.  I also had a couple of coupons that were burning a hole in my back pocket, so to speak, and I couldn't find a hiking partner, so off we went.

We arrived at a little after 11AM.  Traffic going there was fairly painless and we made the trip in the customary 1 hour 45 minutes.  We hit up the buffet, with both of us scoring free ones at Montego Bay.  I had a coupon reoccurring every 2 weeks and I had another coupon that was good for a buffet at any time.  So we basically ate for free.

Afterwards we gambling, with neither one of us doing particularly well.  I did win one baseball bet and losing another.  Neither of us had any major hits although I did tend to get a lot of action for my money.  I toyed with playing some poker late in the day but I didn't really want to abandon Shari especially since she was done gambling.

We decided to use our 2-for-1 coupon at Marzano's -- an Italian Restaurant at Montego Bay.  We've eaten here before and weren't disappointed.  The food was good although they were busy so instead of super fast service, it was slow.  We weren't in any hurt but it certainly took longer for us to get the food than eat it.

We did spot a fire going on south of the 80 interstate.  It was well off in the distance but it looked like a beauty.

Enjoy the photos:

Plate #2 -- that is french toast at the bottom and it was fabulous.

Time for some fruit!
