Helped needed for upcoming Atlantic City visit
Click on the underlined text above to go to the story I wrote a week or so ago that prompted plans from this visit.
I'm going with a couple of girlfriends who, unlike me, didn't need someone to explain what a casino loyalty card was. I'm told that some seats remain if you want to join us.
I am not a gambler and don't have a loyalty card, but my friends take weekend trips to NYstate, Michigan, Niagara and other closeby casinos including Cleveland and know their way around the gaming floors. All I really know about casinos is they don't permit photographs inside them... something I learned the hard way on a visit to Las Vegas.
I hope I can stay up late enough to catch one of the shows, because I understand they are a far cry from the Englebert Humperdink type productions I saw when I was last there, maybe 15 years ago. The debut 10 years ago of Borgata apparently began a trend to LasVegasize this part of the Jersey shore, which still hosts the Miss America pageant every year.
I'm hoping my friends and regular readers can perhaps help me do a good job on the story I am planning as a result of this trip. Tell me what you want to know, what you need to know and what I should look for while I am there. I'll do fine on the non gaming end, checking out the spa, the restaurants and the gift shops as my friends gambling. But I need a little help from my friends for the rest of it.
