- It's a reasonable driving distance from both NYC and DC, with buses making many trips a day.
- There's a lot of poker.
- There's a sizable outlet mall, including your staples: J.Crew, Banana Republic, Coach, and Gap.
- There's a good beach, which is irrelevant right now but is great in warmer months.
It doesn't hurt that we usually get free rooms on weekdays, either!
Yesterday, we spent almost seven hours on the bus (lots of stops) and were happy to finally arrive. We ate at an Indian Restaurant in the Taj Mahal casino (is that offensive in itself?). We had goat, which I've been meaning to try for months. It's a red meat, but it's exceptionally low in fat and calories (red meat with the calories of chicken: only 125 calories for a four ounce serving). It was quite good, tasted just like beef with maybe a hint of lamb chop. Goat meat is tough by nature, but "Royal Albert's Palace" simmered it into tender perfection. (Note: I agree with some of the negative review of this place: service wasn't great and the food was overpriced. However, entree portions were huge and could easily be split, cutting costs).
Anyway, here's what I wore:
Cardigan: Breezy Polkas Cardi
Jeans: Joe's Best Friend jeans
Shoes: Anticipation Heels by Miss Albright (Anthro)
Socks: Stone Rose socks (yes, I did laundry yesterday)
Necklaces: Both Anthro. The long one is the Poms & Trinkets necklace; not sure about the short one.
Ring: local art fair
