AC Warm-Up

I can't participate in my usual bus junket to AC this month because it's scheduled right before I head to Las Vegas, and that's just too much of a muchness. (How, for example, would I properly perform the Last Minute Laundry Ritual?)

So instead, I'm heading up this weekend, for a three night stay starting Saturday. I'm not particularly thrilled at the prospect of driving with all the summer traffic, but I also wanted to catch at least some of the Saturday night action. I'll be interested to see how busy things are the rest of my stay; I'm assuming it won't be super-juicy, but I would think it'll be livelier than the equivalent days of the week in winter.

I may branch out a bit and play somewhere other than Harrah's at least part of the time, if only for variety's sake. It's comfortable to hang out where everybody (well, regulars and staff, anyway) knows your name… but it might be interesting to go where I'm less of a known quantity for a change.

Beach traffic suggestion: Get off the expressway at US 9 (exit 5, after garden state) before the toll plaza. Go left at end of exit ramp up to Route 30 and take that to Harrah's. Delilah Rd is closed so don't listen to gps/google.

I haven't had any problems with Rt.30, plus it takes you right into the Marina district. Took me an hour to get from the toll plaza to Showboat last year, so I found and have used this route a few times with success.

Play well.

GL - Hope to see more wins at 2/5. I am hoping to someday get the nerve to play that too.

GL - Hope the variety suits you. I've yet to visit AC, but I hope to give it a shot in the next few years, if I get out to the East coast again.

How is AC as an overall experience? I'm only two hours from Mohegan and Foxwoods so I've never seen the point for me to drive an additional 4+ hours to New Jersey.

And now I live in the city and decided not to own a car so there goes the option if I ever get that urge.
