Weekend at FireKeepers Hotel and Casino, Battle Creek, MI

I had some work to complete in Battle creek, so we decided to spend the weekend at the local Casino and Hotel – Firekeepers. Typically when I work and stay in the area, we stay in downtown Kalamazoo – at the Radisson Plaza Hotel. The downtown Kalamazoo area has so many local places to walk to and if I am working all day, this leaves a lot of options for David. But we wanted to try out the Casino/Hotel even though David would be stuck there while I worked. He slept in late, then hit the pool and gym, the casino and I was back by that point to spend the late afternoon and evening with him. A great getaway weekend with my wonderful Husband. Oh and David played Pai Gow for a few hours and ….. only lost $40, ha! He was up for a few hours, but that is gambling, don’t play if you want to win.

Firekeepers Hotel weekend.
David was able to work out (no free weights at site) but he used the elliptical – then sauna, then steam room and a cool dip in the pool, he was almost alone the entire morning.
Inside the casino. The lights were stunning and changed color along with the music playing.
Video of the casino, but no table pictures per the staff rules.
You can win this low rider! We did not win… well yet, contest is still on.
They are building a second hotel tower on, so business is good. There is seven on site places to eat here, from a buffet to a higher end restaurant and a sports bar. There is also a auditorium or music venue here, and you can watch Michael Bolton or Boz Scaggs, later this year, we wanted to see Bill Engvall, but have too much going on.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)
