Girls Nights are my favorite. I may even enjoy them more than date nights (ssshhhhh don't tell). But girls nights are crucial for a woman's sanity.
Earlier this month, the Gardens Casino hosted an awesome Girls Night for me and three of my best friends. Kaisa, Michelle, Amanda and myself made our way to Hawaiian Gardens to get our poker face on. We do a couple Girls Nights a month, normally we do dinner or Netflix and wine nights so this was a fun alternative. I've known these three wonderful women since I was 12. That's over 15 years, WOW! No matter what is going on in my life; a heart break, a new love, a career change or something super small, these girls have been there for me through the best and worst of it.
The four of us, we LOVE to eat. So we started with dinner at the restaurant in the Casino and oh my gosh the food was absolutely amazing. We tried different cocktails, had some wine and ate some delicious steaks. After spending about two hours in the restaurant laughing and having some x-rated conversation, we made our way into the high roller VIP area to play some Texas Holdem'.
So fun fact for ya, my uncles' have been teaching me to play Holdem' since I was about 13. Everyone thinks I'm all talk but ask Kaisa's hubby who beat him at poker on New Years Eve. (*wink wink*). Also, my first trip to Vegas, I turned $20 to $200 at the poker tables. I'm not amazing or anything, but I'll keep up. We had two amazing members of the Gardens team sit with us and teach my girlfriends how to play. We had the best time, betting our fake play money (I wish it was real, I could gone out an got myself a pretty new handbag) and learning a new skill. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE our Netflix and wine nights but it was fun to get dressed up and hit the Casino with my girlfriends, I even got a pair of pocket aces that night. Talk about luck!
Overall we had such an amazing night. Not only was the theme of our Girls Night fun, but the entire experience overall was fantastic. The casino itself under went a billion dollar renovation and looks absolutely beautiful on the inside. Once you're inside the casino, you totally get the whole Vegas vibe and energy. From the ambience of the Casino, to every single Gardens Casino employee we encountered, every bit was perfect. Thank you to the Gardens Casino, everything and everyone was perfection and we can't wait to come back.
