We headed to Tunica, Mississippi to visit the casinos again. Since the weather had finally turned cool here in South Bend, we were hoping for warmth in the south. But it did fool us and was only in the high 60's to low 70's during the day.
I want to extend a huge thank you to Rosemary for sharing her pictures with me.

Our home casino/hotel was at the Gold Strike. They were all decked out for Halloween.
The fish outside the entrance are always waiting to beg for food.
After checking in, we were in for the night. On Wednesday, we first visited Sam's Town for breakfast and a few hours of gaming.
Early afternoon, we headed to Beale Street in Memphis - the home of the blues. Upon arrival, we wondered why the street was blocked off and later learned on the news that one of the Jackson brothers was due there for a visit.
First on the agenda was to get a group picture with the Elvis statue where we parked (or as many as we could gather up), then everyone went to explore on their own.
Marcia and I stopped in at Silky O'Sullivan's for an Irish coffee, where there was a bit of entertainment. They even had a Notre Dame flag hanging from the ceiling.
Outside of Silky's, there were a couple of goats begging for crackers.
It was then back to Gold Strike for the evening. Morning took us to Fitzgerald's and Resorts, where we received a breakfast and dinner respectively, along with some gaming. After arriving back at Gold Strike for the evening, some visited Horseshoe and Roadhouse right next door. Horseshoe had decorated bras on display and for voting for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There were many more than what are pictured here.
Friday morning was breakfast at Gold Strike before departing for home.
