Attending a casino isn’t just about spending a bit of money and placing bets. It is also about having a night out with your friends and a big part of this can be eating in a casino restaurant. Whether you’re looking for fast food or a bit of gourmet luxury, most casinos have a wide option of restaurants that are open at all hours. If you’re actually planning a holidays in a casino destination, prepare yourself, visit online casino Canada to play one of the most popular casino games out there.

Sometimes the food in casinos can be so delicious that people go there just to eat and not just to gamble. Casino restaurants can range from: American, Italian, French, Steak Houses, etc., including most things you can imagine, depending on where you go. All places will offer a wide variety of foods designed for all hours of the day or night. Light snacks are available to those who want a post play snack, or even during play snack. Full dinners and also fine dining is available which usually includes three courses for those who want to make a meal of it.

As well as a choice of the size of the meal, there is also pretty much any food you could hope for available in casinos. Most of the world’s biggest places have all four seasons of food available everyday with the possibility to try food from all over the world. When you’re curled up in the huge spectacle of the casino it is easy to forget where you are.

The restaurants in casinos aren’t just about the amazing range of endless foods, there are also a qualifying amount of refreshments, from: fruit juices, sodas, teas and coffees, hot drinks, wines, beers and spirits. Any sort of beverage you can imagine is available, and in most places the players on the floor can free beverages.

It is because casinos are for everyone that the restaurants have food available for everyone, whether you are a vegetarian, vegan or meat lover, you’ll always find something you want.

One Step Too Far, Tina Seskis

One Step Too Far

The description from the publishers

An apparently happy marriage. A beautiful son. A lovely home. So what makes identical twin Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life? How will she survive? And what is the date that looms, threatening to force her to confront her past? No-one has ever guessed her secret. Will you?

What I thought
This book reads quickly but not particularly pleasantly. There is a casual, young voice that leans towards annoyingly immature rather than depressed and desperate.

Seskis is more focussed on tell rather than show: Emily has moved into a new flat, sharing with random strangers and this is how she describes a girl she just met : “I love Angel. She is kind and speechlessly pretty and gets away with everything.”

Our protagonist extrapolated this information after meeting this character very briefly and much of the book uses this kind of shallow reasoning. I couldnt’ read past about 15%.

Another part which read straight out of a teen fantasy book was Emily meeting a man once and then two months later after they had both apparently been pining for each other she instigated his visit to her house where they consummated their mad love.

I had no interest in the character or her story. I thought the story creation was poor and decided to stop reading not long after I started.

To my amazement, Seskis has another book out for publication. I’ll be giving it a miss. To be fair to the author, I didn’t really want to write this review as the book was certainly not written in a style that I would prefer. The packaging and promotion was a bit misleading. I did however read this free of charge from the publisher on NetGalley so felt it was only fair to provide some feedback. There have been 532 reviews on Amazon.co.uk and it has scored very highly (I have no idea why).

Can’t you sleep, little bear?

A most peculiar night, tonight. I woke up at 1.40. Mersina padded out of her room at 2.20 saying she wanted to eat and the door buzzer rang at nearly 3. It was so insistent and persistent that I answered and told them they had the wrong flat.
At 3.53 I’ve read to M, she’s hopefully asleep and I’m off to bed too.
