    random, if you get out to Mohegan sun poconos, PA, there is a diner 300 yards from the parking lot.
    I believe its called D's.

    it may look like nothing, even the inside is kind of drab looking, but the food is good.

    when the show undercover boss aired an episode and the boss from Mohegan sun was eating one day, he was in that diner. They didn't show the name, but I knew from the looks of it.

    Is kite rental covered in the resort fee or is there an extra charge?
    I suspect that is a viable option only for locals or those who pass through the area routinely. Personally, I have traveled a couple hours or so to a casino and not played for at least three hours only once. I was in Orlando on business for a couple weeks and went over to Tampa to check out the Seminole casino there. Had to stop by AAA to get directions to the place. Walked in, saw there were no table games (other than poker, which had people waiting), walked back out, and drove back to Orlando.

    Being as I anticipated visiting Orlando about every nine months for the foreseeable future -- I supported a warehouse application I had developed -- and the warehouse contained a romantic interest -- I checked out other "investment" possibilities in the area and discovered the cruises to nowhere. Never did very well on the boats, but it was a way to scratch the itch.
    And how often is that "blackjack loss" actually a way of getting what happened in Vegas, or any other venue where companionship is available, to stay in Vegas because an accomplice of the companion-er showed up at an inopportune time with a camera or worse, a weapon? On two occasions that I remember I had an opportunity to avoid sleeping alone -- or maybe at all -- and declined, and not just for reasons of fidelity.

    Went up to Resorts World on Saturday night, late, after 11pm. Was pretty busy. Noticed that they've removed one of the Craps tables! Now there are only three. Didn't ask where the table went, guess I should have.

    The remaining three were all open - two were $15, the other $25. They were full, but not jam packed.

    Found room on the $15, bought in for $200. Way under funded I know. Placed the 6 and 8 for $18 each, then played continuous COME bets.

    I lasted for about 30 minutes, had a few bets pay, but never got anything going.

    At end I had $18 after a S-out. I put it on DP. Shooter rolled a 3. Left all $36 out there. Shooter rolled a se*en.

    Went to bar in the back, had a ginger ale and watched Sports Center, then wandered around a little, watched some big buck Baccarat in the 'Red room', and then headed home.

    I am not their target client.

    Went up on Saturday.

    One of the tables was a $50 minimum.

    Eight guys playing.

    I would need $1500 to buy into that game.

    that's just fucking ridiculous, but they get it, so why lower mins.

    I was in jakes 58 slot casino with bubble dice on sunday, the place was so packed it was like sardines in a can.

    everyone has money to gamble.

    they keep sending me and my wife free one night room offers for any sunday thru Thursday.

    Oh, they raffled off a car, a Camaro convertible.

    Guy that won it almost looked angry. Had to be a big player with 10's of thousands of entries in the drawing, and he knew what a hassle it was gonna be to do the paper work and sell the thing to pocket a few bucks.

    Things are cooking up at Kiamesha Lake.

    A shopping village is being built right in front of the casino/hotel.

    I thought I saw some excavation equipment on the golf course, which is being renovated and modernized to be 'Open' ready as far as set-up and playing conditions.

    And the water park is being developed; you can't drive over there to see what's going on. I don't think that can open this year.

    Thanks for the info Bases. Hopefully soon, they'll come to their senses & make the tables more player friendly. For now, I'll go the extra mile to Wilkes Barre PA, where the Heineken is FREE & I can hold my own, on a selection of $5 tables 'till the action get heated up. Also I know there's a good chance that a local DI will show up. And if they don't, well then...there's always yours truly. Some venues just resonate...knowwatimean?

    Why is Heineken so damn good?

    Almost anyplace on the planet serves Heineken, and it’s always damn good!

    Are there any Danes that can explain?

    I was addicted to Heineken, back in the bad old days.

    I would set up shop at Binion's and drink Heinekens all night.

    Free while playing, $.50 at the bar!

    There are worse addictions.

    Combining addictions can sometimes be bad, like too many Heinekens at the Craps table, unless you’re just betting $5 a roll.

    My buy in is $500 per $5 table. Would be nice to buy in for $5000. Just add a zero to all you do. Can you say $440 inside, including point?

    Why is Heineken so good? :confused: Because it is made using only the finest skunks. :)

    So now you’re a Dane?

    You used to be Bavarian or Extra terrestrial or a Baron.

    Thanks for your valuable insights.
