GreekTown Casino in Detroit

Well I'm not on a jet plane heading for Europe which means I'm here in my home office. Well we didn't win big which I had hoped for but Peek-A-Boo Street did win $5o gambling at the casino. Well we didn't sit in on the high roller section or anything like that, it was more of the nickel and quarter slot machines. I could not believe how many slot machines there were and they were all lit up. There were rows and rows of slot machines. I even asked if I could take pictures and the lady just looked at Peek-A-Boo and said, "No." I just walked away and continued on my casino adventure. It was very smokey. There might have been a non smoking floor but I'm not sure.
Did we have fun on our first visit you ask? You bet (no pun intended)! My hubby and I had a blast! We had so much fun! We just thought we were all that! I felt like a kid at the carnival! There were lights everywhere and the music was booming! There were a lot of people from all walks of life with one thing in mind. Everyone wanted to win BIG! What an experience.
After we whooped it up at the casino we went to go get some lunch right in Greek Town where the casino is located. We went to Pizza Populas. I probably did not spell that right. And we sat upstairs of the restaurant at the window where you could look down and people watch. It was so much fun. There were construction workers with there florescent vests and hard helmets. I seen the UPS truck going by. A woman police officer walking by. People looking for a place to eat. People pointing here and there. I seen homeless people sleeping on the stoop of St. Mary's door. There was this old man. He must have been in his 80's. He was wearing a black suit with a black hat, all dressed up walking along a black iron fence. He was just strolling down the avenue. There was something unique about him. You could tell that he held a wealth of history. You could probably sit down with him and he could tell you all about the history of Detroit.
So anyway I was able to take some pictures but not to many. I was just having to much fun to actually stop and take pictures.
So will we ever go back you ask? You betcha!

















And that's it...
