    Son of a BITCH! They just sent me a postcard informing me that there will be a set of wine glasses, soft pillows & two tickets to see Bare Naked Ladies waiting for me in September! Must be why they are broke giving away all this high end crap!

    AC started going downhill when Artie left the Stern show, no more show promotion for his gigs which in turn promoted the entire area.

    I've been wondering if they can somehow reinvent themselves but it doesn't seem possible at this stage.

    AC will come back when Detroit does

    It is common in history for places to rise and fall

    the final straw for AC was when PA, DE, MD and WV allowed table gaming and more casinos started popping up. The AC casinos are better still the only place other than Vegas you can find $5 tables and slot payouts and comps are better. AC should have fixed the boardwalk and promoted the beach as part of the destination instead of just the casinos.

    The Revel treated me fairly badly when I visited the place last year. No interest at all in returning.

    Let the tide take it out.

    I can't stand that either. The Vegas casinos did a good job with filtration when I lived there but even they've gotten worse.

    THe smoking is a major part of casinos and stupid to not allow it. People who smoke would rather forgo eating than smoking. Keep them gambling by allowing them to smoke in the casinos and they will never leave.

    Furthermore, degenerate gambling goes hand in hand with smoking in that both are destructive addictions. Chain smokers are probably the biggest money makers for casinos.

    We get it, you're Benjy. Why don't you go back to the office and maybe write some funny shit for the Stern show. Everyone laughs at your posts here, now feed some lines to Howie like that "High Pitch Eric did 31 Steps" joke - classic.
