I love being twenty-one. I love being able to walk into a restaurant and know that I can order WHATEVER I want on the menu (well at least legally, though maybe not financially, but you get my point). I can go into any grocery store or liquor store and fell completely at ease with the fact that I am legally allowed to be there and purchase items. It is such a great feeling!! And, I think my other favorite part is being able to go up to the Blackhawk hotels and gamble! I am not a huge gambler; in fact, the whole idea about possibly losing your hard-earned money really worries me, but it is fun to be able to gamble.
I personally like going up to the Blackhawk restaurants because it is a little resort with great food and it is really close to Denver. I can dine at four and five star restaurants without having to fly to a big city or spend outrageous amounts of money on the trip to eat there. I also like being able to relax at the spas up in Blackhawk. The views are absolutely phenomenal and I still feel like I took a mini-vacation but I didn’t leave the state.
Also, as a newest member into the over twenty-one team, I love being able to pamper my girlfriends that are about to turn twenty-one without having to go to Vegas. It is very exciting to be able to save some money on a fun trip or two up to the Blackhawk hotels for a weekend.
