Fall seems to have arrived early this year. Chilly nights and windy days always make me think of Halloween and Monday Night Football, both of which are big deals at Rolling Hills Casino. My food cravings seem to reflect the change of seasons as well. Fall spices liven up the specialty coffee drinks in Aromas, and they’re serving up plenty of warm comfort foods in the Buffet to satisfy my appetite. No wonder October is one of my favorite times of the year.
Nothing warms up a night better than a good laugh: Friday, October 4
