Welcome to the Great Escape. Each week, we’ll tell you about one great idea to give you a much deserved break, and make your life a little easier, maybe a whole lot easier.
Before MJ and I got married, the pastor sat us down to talk about what we should expect from one another.
He said we should be each other’s biggest cheerleaders, to always put one another first, and to always keep in mind that MJ was like a microwave and I was like a crockpot—while all I was going to have to do was push a few of MJ’s buttons, MJ was going to have to wait a while for me to warm up.
A man sees romance very differently than a woman. Where a man may think presenting himself au naturale in Captain Morgan pose is an invite for romance, a woman needs a little wining and dining before jumping into the main event. If being married for thirteen years has taught me anything, it’s the art of compromise.
Ameristar Casino can provide everything you need for a romantic get-away, no compromise needed.
From the moment you walk into the posh hotel lobby, you feel like you’ve been jetted away on an exotic vacation, even though you haven’t left St. Charles. With rooms overlooking the city or the Missouri river, the view will exceed your expectations.
Check in early and head to Ara Spa. Request a couple’s massage or indulge in their “Splash at Ara” service to relieve tension and restore energy- and energy is definitely something you’ll want to have later.
Dress for dinner at Bugatti’s Steak & Pasta. The warm atmosphere will provide a grown-up experience, no kid’s menus in sight. Their Valentine’s menu includes choices of filet mignon or lobster and a mousse dessert they call “Chocolate Covered Strawberry”.
Kiss the dice for luck at the craps table, try your hand at blackjack, or play the slots. You may not end up rolling in money in your king-sized hotel bed, but then again, you might. What is certain is you will have fun together.
If you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day on Saturday, stop in to the Bottleneck Blues Bar to hear Trixie Delight, a diverse cover band playing everything from AC/DC to Stevie Nicks.
The best thing about Ameristar: it’s all-inclusive. You can relax at the spa, enjoy a beautiful meal, and dance to a live band all without leaving the casino. Whether you go for the day, the evening, or you’re lucky enough to get away for the night, Ameristar offers everything you need to make this Valentine’s weekend, or any weekend, special.
