Hey there. Hard to believe, but I took a day off, maybe to re-group (this was supposed to be my cruise week, you know), and am here at Mystic Lake Casino. I used one of my free hotel nights, and it's only a half hour or so from home and a decent short getaway. Work-wise, I'll make up for it over the weekend.
Mystic Lake has become quite a sprawling complex, and I like it even though it has a lot of slot machines that are too complicated for me to understand, so I mostly avoid them, which is a probably a good thing. The hotel rooms are nice. What is weird about Mystic Lake is that it is a totally alcohol-free facility -- booze isn't even allowed in the hotel rooms. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't alcohol-free gambling not what nature intended gambling to be?
