We have great weather in store this weekend and gas prices are falling. The perfect weekend to head to a casino and enjoy a concert or show! Depending on what casino you go to there could be outdoor concerts too! Not only are there concerts but if you or your favorite person plays golf a lot of casinos have that available. I myself don't golf but my husband Scott does, I  like to drive the golf cart.

The other great part about driving is that these are all within 2 hours from our home here in the Berkshires!

The first one on our list is Mohegan Sun, located in Uncasville, Connecticut.
