All we hear recently about Atlantic City is how bad things are, casinos are closing, people are losing their jobs, and the city has lost its luster. With all the bad news I’m not sure what to expect when I roll into town in a couple of weeks.
I have a business trip to Philly in early December and as I was researching the casino choices in Philly I wasn’t getting very excited about my options. It didn’t really hit me that AC was only a short <90 minute drive away until I looked at my Google map.
Once I saw the map it clicked, and sure enough my friends at Harrah’s Total Rewards were nice enough to have a comp room waiting for me. So now when I visit the City of Brotherly Love I’ll be heading to the coast immediately after my meetings.
I’m very curious to get a feel for the town, the people and the attitude I encounter in my short trip. I’m excited since I haven’t been there in over 20 years and even if this isn’t the heyday for AC I still have a feeling there are good times and good blackjack to be had.
I’ll file a report in about 2 weeks to let you know what the city has to offer.
