2.27 - The One with the elusive purple door

Tonight we were in Peterborough hanging out at Lesley's church and then afterwards Dan had this brilliant idea of going to the Purple Door...light? I can't remember what it was called...something purple. Anyways he really didn't know where it was, although he knew the general area where it was located. He didn't tell us that it was a seasonal thing, and didn't tell us what we were in for. After driving around for about 20 minutes, with directions like: uhh...its a one way street by a park with stautes in it...that runs north and south. We finally found the place, but it wasn't there/open/whatever.

So then we decided to goto Kawartha Downs to check our the slots because we were curious and never have been inside. Trav went to a machine and stuck in $20...and probably sat there for a good 15-20 minutes hitting the button over and over again. I went over to one...put a $10 in and played. I honestly don't get it...I was bored...I'm sure if I won I'd be happy...but all you do is push a button or pull the lever. No skill whatsoever. We didn't win anything...although the first machine I went to...I put in a card, pushed a few even greeted me by displaying my name on the screen with a MR. infront of it. After a few more button pushes it spat out $60 in cash...sweet

It's called Purple City... I'm the one who took Dan! AND, I'm sorry to say, that it's apparently closed in Peterborough. There are a few spread out around the country... one in Brampton that I know of... It's really quite the experience. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you.
