What Recession?

I was at the Borgata in Atlantic City this weekend, and they seemed to be thriving, even with the economic recession we’re in. Some people have cut back, and as a result there are currently some GREAT deals on cheap rooms at all of the major casinos. But at the poker tournament, there was NO shortage of cash!

On Sunday nights, most of the high-end restaurants are closed. So we ended up eating at the “food court” downstairs.. Two Cheesesteak combos from Tony Luke’s? That’ll be $28.96. Gotta love the way they rob you when it comes to food in AC!

In any event, the tournament broke for 45 minutes, and there were hundreds of players in the food court scrambling to get some food. Many of the players were young, and all were dressed pretty normal. But watching them pull out these WADS OF CASH, flush with hundred dollar bills.. It was a real sight.

On the way into Atlantic City, a Rolls-Royce Drop-Top pulled up next to me. Sure enough, he pulled into the Borgata! Crazy..
