This weekend was a blast.
We spent Saturday celebrating my big brother Cory's 30th birthday.
He had decided he wanted to celebrate at Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.
Friends and family checked in around 4 pm then headed to The Final Cut, the steakhouse inside the casino.
The food was uh-mazing!
After eating way too much we hopped on a party bus filled with an insane amount of booze.
The destination was Mt Adams.
We visited Mt Adams Tavern to see our favorite bartender (Cory's friend since elementary).
After we stopped in another bar then jumped back on the bus and headed back to the casino.
I'm not much of a gambler so once back I just watched everyone else gamble away {maybe win} their money.
Although I did try my hand at the slots ... I can see why people get addicted.
Overall it was one of the best weekends and I'm so happy I was able to celebrate with my brother.
And a huge thank you to Sara {Cory's wonderful gf} and Mr & Mrs Dreier for putting together the festivities!
