CET junket 9/8-10
Long line at airport to get boarding pass.Usualy real fast-turns out there was a mix up with CET sending the manifest to the carrier and half the passengers had to be verified by phone 1 at a time & passes made out by hand.Plane boarded on time,but then sat at the gate for an hour(for a 45 min flight) as flight crew had to check hand written manifest.Good news was I scored a first row seat in a comfy 1st class seat.
Room was ready on arrival at Caesars AC.Nice room in Centurian Tower,but no view - oh well-place was full because of the pagent.
Beautiful weather and I enjoyed the Boardwalk all weekend both walking and riding the tram.Wonderful people watching & the boards were packed.
Had dinner Fri nite at Harry's Oyster Bar.Sat at the bar as I was solo this trip and had a great bartender very friendly & talkative.Also met some nice folks at the bar - so much better than sitting at "the lonely guy table" Food was great,too.On the way out I stoped & listened to the band out on the lawn(which was packed on a lovely nite)I love "live" music and had a great time.Highly recommended!
Sat I met with old friends at the Steel Pier Bar to watch the parade. It was so great to see them & we had a front row table.Met other nice folks as well & we had a big time enjoying the parade and adult beverages.The cars in the parade were great to see - Olds 442,"57 Chevy,old Caddy ElDog among others.I also enjoyed seeing many of the winners from years past,who still looked great,although a few had "fleshend up a bit" It was sad to see the Taj-my former AC home-closed up.I had many fun times there.I was also reminded of the time I saw the Four Seasons at the Steel Pier in the Summer of "67 when I had just turned 21. Jeez! - time flys when you"re having fun! When Ms NC came by I walked out to her car,told her where I was from & we high fived.(told ya about the adult beverages)What a wonderful time!
I got a lot of gaming in too.Earned 5,000 Tier Credits & thanks to a $2K handpay,actualy came home with a rare profit of $500! Can't ask for a better trip than that!
Safe travels & jackpots to all,
