Hard rock casino Biloxi,Ms.

 Last week I tried the new satisfaction buffet at the hard rock casino in Biloxi Mississippi.  It was a very nice experience  I truly enjoyed it. They have completely redone the dining room and it is a nice updated and modern version. They have a new chef who I believe came over from the palace casino and the food is excellent with a great variety to choose from.  They have several discounts you can use just check at the players club when you go in. I believe you will enjoy this buffet so give it a try.

Cafe Du Monde

 When visiting New Orleans a stop at the Cafe Du Monda is a must.   The best time to go there would be after breakfast otherwise you would probably have to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. The average weight is about 10 minutes but most of the times that I’ve been there I’ve been able to get a table right away it just depends on your luck  they are open 24 hours a day they only close on Christmas day or if they have a hurricane in New Orleans . The café was established in 1862 and has been going strong ever sense. They are famous  for their coffee and  beignets.  I myself prefer there coffee au lait  but you can get regular coffee also. The café produces about 30,000 beignets a day.  They are located directly across from Jackson Square the heart of the French Quarter.  If you are a coffee lover I’m sure you will enjoy your visit to Cafe Du Monda enjoy.

You have two options here you can dine in the courtyard or in the restaurant either one  is very good.  The drinks are very reasonable and you might want to try the hurricane which they are famous for.

Travel Alert

I would love to be able to discuss hotels and restaurants today, but there is a travel alert that you must be aware of. We normally review hotel and restaurants worldwide, but today, we must discuss the events happening in the Middle East. Our embassies in Libya and Egypt have come under attack, and the ambassador in Libya has been murdered, along with three staff members. They were gunned down in the street like dogs. So if you are planning travel to any Muslim countries. You should probably cancel it immediately for your own safety. If they can kill the ambassador, what chance do you think you would have. The Obama administration will not take any action to assist you. Should you run into trouble. You're basically on your own. So traveler beware.
