We did a stupid thing.

My USBC National tournament is in Syracuse this year. My wife and I drove from Milwaukee, spending time in Niagara Falls along the way. After I bowled (very well, thanks for asking) we spent a day at Cooperstown then a day on the ride back at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

This was not supposed to be a gambling trip... we will be in Reno in a month for my wife's National tournament.

However, the gambling jones got to us. Big time. We ended at 12 different casinos in 8 days. "Just to get a chip for my collection" was my mantra. Then one of us would dump $300 and mutter non-happily. We'd go to another and the loser would chase (sometimes successfully).

Long story short, my Reno bankroll is still in decent shape, but my wife's is decimated. Luckily she'll be tied up with bowling and team dinners for a couple of days, and we'll likely spend some time that Sunday at Lake Tahoe.

But to keep her from wandering around the casinos with empty pockets and mining slot machines for people who leave $0.03 without cashing out....

Anybody know of any non-gambling fun to be had that weekend?
