    How about a thread regarding new development in Atlantic City?

    We recently visited Bourre, a new Cajun Restaurant/Bar in the “Orange Loop” section of AC. The Orange Loop is basically three streets: Tennessee, New York, and St. James Place and named after the Orange monopoly cards. We just had sandwiches and drinks, but the food was great and prices were very reasonable. There is an outdoor area for the warm weather.

    Just left AC....stayed at the nugget and made my way to ballys and borgata. Nugget was slow with not much going on. Ballys was a total show in itself. A cockroach walked by our feet on the craps table. There were homeless and all kinds of people everywhere and the dealers were very slow with an attitude because they deal with BS all day. I cant see that place staying around much longer. Now the borgata was a different ballgame like usual. The tables were packed...atmosphere was great...dealers and people were awesome. Played craps for 18 hours total in two days and came up a winner!

    After my last trip Christmas week, I crossed Bally's off my list of casinos I will ever visit again. It's a borderline homeless shelter at this point. I went in the summer and it was just as bad, and gave it another chance in December and walked out twice. I had a comped room there and wound up dragging my stuff up to Hard Rock around 10PM to sleep there on another comped room. Even free is not worth it for that place any more.

    I visited Bally’s and Caesars as well during the week between Christmas and New Years. Yes, it’s worn around the edges and they recently changed some tables to as low as $5, but I didn’t see anyone resembling a homeless person nor was I hit up for a donation. Maybe this recent marketing initiative ($5 tables, $15 breakfast buffet at Bucca, $3 beers, etc.) is having an unintended consequence. Bally’s and Caesars still have a bus program so it tends to draw an older and less affluent demographic. I played craps at Wild Wild West and some VP in the main gaming area. Unfortunately, Bally’s monthly “win” is at the bottom among the 8 other casinos.
