It was a great weekend for firsts. We had never been to a Davis Cup match and we had never been to the Mohegan Sun Casino. Why watch great tennis on TV when you can be there in person? And what better place to see it? Since we had never been in that area before, we looked on the web for information about Uncasville. I only found hotel accomodations and Mohegan Sun listed. While in the area, we found several places of interest. Mohegan Sun Casino. This beautiful casino was worth the trip by itself. Click here For lots of information about Mohegan Sun . Foxwoods Casino: This casino, the largest in the world,...Read More

Restaurant

We had a little time before going to the first tennis match, so we decided to go to one of the food courts for a quick lunch. We selected Johnny Rocket’s since it was on our AA Dining Club. Yes, we did have to wait in line, but the line went quickly. This restaurant reminds me an old-style white-and-chrome hamburger diner straight from the movie set of American Graffiti. The chrome counter is consistent with the décor of the ‘50s. There are very few booths and usually a wait to get them. A suggestion would be to go to the take-out line and bring your food to the nearby courtyard where there is plenty of seating. The lunch choices included lots of different hamburger combos and ...Read More

Some of one-word descriptions of this casino are: "wow," "awesome," "unbelievable," "huge," "well-lit," and "breathtaking." In fact, I was totally unprepared to see an architectural wonder of the magnitude of the new casinos of Vegas. I have included a picture I took of the map just to give you some impression of the layout of this casino. However just looking at the map does not give you the feel of just how large it is. One indication is the number of parking garages! By the way, I never once gambled during the entire three days I spent at Mohegan Sun and still there is so much for the non-gambler. What is included in the property called Mohegan Sun? Two casinos: One is called the Cas...Read More

Attraction | "A chance of a lifetime to see US Davis Cup Match"

Quote:
When my wife suggested trying to get tickets to see the US Team play Davis Cup, I never realized what a great weekend we would have. It was fantastic! The three days will be a wonderful memory for years to come. Excellent Play: It was a great seeing the American pros playing for their country against Austria. In the first match, Robbie Ginepri came back from a two-set deficit to win in five sets. His drive and determination were fun to witness. Being fans of doubles, we also enjoyed seeing the Bryan brothers play. However, the most impressive highlight was when Andy Roddick hit a 150-mile-an-hour serve, setting the record for the Davis Cup. The audience roared with delight. Au...Read More

Attraction | "Nostalgia"

Quote:
One of my favorite stores at Mohegan Sun was Nostalgia. When I walked into the store, it was as if I was a teenager again. The entire store is packed with "stuff" that I remember from the ‘60s. It was definitely a time to reminisce about the "old" days! There was an entire I Love Lucy section to bring back memories. There were several vintage jukeboxes (with real records!) displayed. There were a lot of old Coke bottles, terrific signs, and children’s books available to buy. Unfortunately, I just looked and did not buy. I almost felt that I should have paid an admission price to the "museum"! Of course, there was a ‘57 Chevy Belair model to drool over. Not only was there a life size statu...Read More
