I recently had some time to get away from work and have some fun. I contemplated a solo Vegas trip but then got an offer for the Ameristar in Back Hawk, CO that was pretty sweet. For those who don’t know, Black Hawk is a small town in the Colorado mountains that has several casinos. The offer came through the partnership between MGM’s MLife and Ameristar’s Star Rewards. The combination of a sweet hotel room offer and a friend’s availability to make the hour drive to Black Hawk swayed me to forego Vegas until October. I will start off with a set of photos of the room and discuss the trip in another post. Overall I would describe the room as above average, but I would gladly stay there again. Apologies for the imperfect pic,s but hey not that bad for being scotch drunk (as tends to happen with gambling).
