This weekend was the First Annual Girls’ Night away. We headed over to Biloxi about 1.5 hours away. Stopping for coffee and a bathroom break once at the Mississippi/Alabama border, we made fantastic time, checked into the hotel, and got ready to roll. Because we waited so long to get our act together, we had to stay at the Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel. Both the Hard Rock and the Beau Rivage, our first and second choices, were booked. We were pleasantly surprised! Since the hurricane came through, Biloxi has been working at rebuilding and they are doing a great job. The streets on the “main drag” are still torn up and make for slow driving during prime cruising time, but for the most part Biloxi is coming back to life.
The Treasure Bay checked us in right away without any problems. Our room had a Gulf view (and a view of the air conditioning unit on the roof as pictured below). It was very clean and classy. The bathroom was the kind of bathroom that I would put in my own house. It was in a beautiful beige and black tile with a cool walk in shower. It was one of those showers with no doors. Everyone was extremely pleasant and helpful. There is a free 24 hour shuttle that will run you to and from any casino or tourist spot that you would like to go.
We headed to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe, where I had the tastiest hamburger I have had in awhile. After that we sat around and listened to the band play. We had a blast listening to Five Star Iris. After their set, we got to talk to them for a little while. Next time you are listening to a band in a small setting, sit close to the stage if you can stand the sound! You just might get to meet the band!
