And on to AC

POST #    1324

After the Vote for Change concert, Johnny and I headed to Atlantic City. It seems like a crazy idea to head to go to a concert, then afterwards to AC, but we had a car that wasn't due until Saturday afternoon, so what the hey. It worked out pretty well. Leave the concert at 11:40, arrive in AC by 1:40 or so. There we met up with some high school friends who had a suite at the Trump Plaza and a room at the Borgata. Turns out, Johnny and I didn't need either.

He played poker most of the night, while I played blackjack for about 3 hours. Strangely, the blackjack tables start clearing around 3:30. Who knew? After looking into the room at the Borgata around 7, we decided to make the return to New York. We were up a little money and the room was about 20° more than comfortable.

On our return, we stopped at IHOP which was the perfect addition to our trifect of bad eating. Wendy's followed by a late night stop at Burger King and finally IHOP. A breakfast at McDonald's was for some reason ruled out. Good eating, good Eating.

The drive back was uneventful as I was sleeping for some of it. Worst copilot ever.

Who's the big winner tonight? Mikey. Mikey's the big winner.

Blackjack dealers hate me. I like to pick and choose which hands I participate in. I'm a dork, I know. If I "feel" that the cards are getting bad, I'll pull my chips and just sit at the table for a few hands (oh, and receive dirty looks from the dealer). Well, actually, I only did this while I was in Vegas in '95. Still lost $$$ on that trip!
