Believe me, I'm all about trolling on some Daft Punk, even if it means giving false credit to a legit worse band or act to rile up people (most know I can't stand Daft Punk, around here, so I'll spare the rest of you)... but this, like, wasn't even remotely clever, funny, or anything at all. I fail to see its purpose. Nothing against Bonzai for posting it, I just am befuddled by the thing even existing.
I'm really over-analyzing it... pay no mind to the drunk man behind the Inforoo account.
My post was not a dig on Daft Punk. I just thought it was funny. In my opinion, I actually think whoever made it, actually is a Daft Punk fan/ Skrillex hater, which is why I posted it in a thread full of Daft Punk lovers.
Thank you for the second post, though. Definitely over analyzing!

^ She didn't just live there; she was a viticulturist for the Biltmore. Chick not only has grapes on her feet; she knows her wine!!!
That said...a tour of the Biltmore is worth it, esp. when the autumn colors are at their peak. It's a great tour - kinda lengthy, both in time spent waiting in line to get in & time spent leisurely touring the estate - but I'm not sure it's worth the $64 admission. Still, some hotels offer discount admission. If you can swing a reduced rate, go for it!

I did the tour when I was like 12 and remember being impressed. They have a Daniel Plainview bowling alley. I can't justify spending $64, though, especially when I've heard such horror stories about the wine.

One thing to keep in mind about Biltmore is that this is the time of the year when it is in transition between the beautiful flowers in the garden and the awesome Christmas decorations. It's a neat place to see if you haven't before, but go on Sunday (if you can) because it will be less crowded and a little bit cheaper.
The other alternative? Take a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Fall colors will be past peak at the end of October, but it will still be pretty. Or drive to Cherokee and do a little gambling (my plan for one of the mornings).
I like close to two large casinos... gambling just ain't my thang.
EDIT: Connecticut casinos are the 4th highest revenue in the states:
