    Hello there Fellow Crapers,

    It finally happened this past weekend, my favorite underground Craps game reopened. It was delayed a bit due to the rampant fires burning down the left coast.

    Here is what I learned:

    1. The Co-Owner who caught Covid 19 is healthy (sort of) again and lost 30 pounds in 30 days. He claims Remdesivir saved his life. He still looked weak to me and I didn't get anywhere near him. He stayed in the back, sitting on a chair, with a mask and gloves on. He had with him a little portable oxygen assist machine with a tube going under his mask. He says he is getting stronger every day.

    2. They installed 4 blowers in the ceiling that you could get from Home Depot. They also installed two Hepa Filter systems in two areas inside. They sucked in air through the Hepa filter and blow air straight up. They have 4 separate intake vents so positive air flow up to the blowers is assured.

    3. Two regulation Craps tables in full production. they limited the tables to 5 players plus two dealers at a time with a Pit Boss looking over both tables. His head was on a swivel all night long. I also saw two camera's installed on top of both Craps tables. They also look quite real.

    4. I was there yesterday, Sunday, and they had 4 football games going with 4 70" Tv's hanging on the walls. (My 49'ers were robbed.) There were about 30 men in this converted garage; 12 playing craps with ten people on the waiting list for Craps. 20 people on the waiting list just to get into the garage. Everyone in Masks and Gloves; looked weird.

    5. Beer was going fast at $1 a bottle. They added hard seltzer as well. Nacho's were $1 as were the hot dogs.

    6. Game Limits have been changed: Max Payout on a single roll is $10,000. 3x4x5x on odds. Table minimum was $10 on one table and $25 on the other table. Both were full for the several hours I was there. I did see a few guys betting heavy and losing. All in all, the House did very well. What were they losing on? Horn bets, number bets. Where did all the Come players go? The old pass line, full odds, come, full odds twice and then sit and wait to see what happens. Very small house advantage. I feel like the millennials have NO fricking clue how to play this game.

    7. I didn't play, mostly watched the 49'er game; had a few beers, cruised on home after the game.

    8. Didn't see any gang members.

    Was it fun? Yup; better than staying home

    You are in an underground craps game with a guy...“recovering“ from covid, hooked up to an oxygen machine, gloves, mask, 30 pounds lighter and you’re not sure he’s recovered?

    Sounds like a plan.

    I’m making like the roadrunner outta there.

    30 people in a garage, sounds pretty safe from covid. especially the guy donning the oxygen mask.

    hope youre winning some bucks at least.

    if I didn't have a new grandson last week, Id probably be at some casino as I type this. I am going thru horrible withdrawal.
