Just four and a half hours south of the Metro Atlanta area by car in Biloxi, Mississippi, for you, the real attraction could be the bustling casinos, the pristine and colorful landscaping, the soothing and relaxing spa treatment, nearby beaches, blue water pool, first class restaurants, buffets, shopping, or a round of golf. But for me,
Yes, Beau Rivage, a sprawling beachfront MGM property for a weekend of fun and excitement is just a drivable distance away, or an hour and a half flight.
I selected to go for a weekend getaway with my spouse Joe when one of our all-time favorite groups Earth Wind & Fire was performing for two sold out nights in the 1550 seat Beau Rivage Theater.
This resort has a lot of special touches like a private area for VIPs to check in and a designated elevator. The plush hotel rooms are part of a $90 million capital project including a $55 million room remodel that should be completed by September.
Upon arrival and check-in, we quickly changed for the evening and headed to dinner at the resort's upscale steak house BR Prime. I had a filet cooked perfectly with the heavy char that I love and smoked gouda mac n cheese. Joe had the Faroe Island Salmon with the summer Island Quinoa, Roasted White Asparagus and. Orange Miso Sauce. The service was impeccable as the waiters were super attentive throughout dinner. W
Earth Wind and Fire (EWF) did not disappoint! Going through major songs from their expansive, catalog from "September,"
Upcoming shows in the theater are not limited to vocals and include magicians and comedians. Lyle Lovett and his Big Band comes Friday, August 19; Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Friday, and Saturday August 26 and 27;
The next morning, we were scheduled to have a couples massage, but Joe chose to sleep in. So off I go to a much-needed hour-long massage. I experienced the hot stones for the very first time .
We had breakfast and lunch at the buffet dining area that has over 700 seats and 100 items from BBQ to Chinese to gumbo to fried fish and crab legs.
