    My Trip Report

    Well my friends it’s time for the semi live TR of the summer in AC.

    The participants will be Mr And Mrs Wallew. This time around, there will be no friends or meet ups involved(damn Covid). There will however be too much drinking, eating under strange conditions, possible shenanigans and possibly even a little gambling going on.

    We decided last minute on a 2 night stay at Hard Rock over Caesars based on last Sunday’s recon trip and also reports from other VMB all stars. We are not quite sure how this will go but we’re going to give one hell of a try.

    A half hour of work to go. Then hopefully a quick trip home to grab the Mrs and say goodbyes to the 3 girls and 2 dogs til Sunday.

    Will do my best to keep it semi live but there’s always a chance we go radio silent for a while, if the wheels start to come off.

    Buckle up you sumbitches. We’re going to show you how to get this done with a little Jersey style.

    The Wallew’s have landed. Just checked in at Hard Rock. Room is clean and was sealed at the door. Mrs Wallew just sprayed enough Lysol to kill anything not taken care of by housekeeping.

    Having a drink in the room and unpacking, then heading down to get things started.

    Mrs Wallew played Monopoly for about 45 minutes. Ended up $150. Put our name in at Landshark. 1 1/2 hour wait. But having drinks on the boardwalk listening to live music.

    I’m not even sure what to say about this. This woman definitely hasn’t had any OSHA training or training by the Infection Prevention Department of a level one trauma center. It’s a good thing her sidekick has.

    Good morning friends.

    Last night was pretty uneventful. Dinner at Landshark was ok. Food was decent but service was terrible. Also if someone is looking to get the covid. Go to the Landshark beach bar after dark. The wife and I were shocked at how it was. Fairly crowded with young people, all dancing to the bumping music and no one wearing a mask. ( The mrs said I should walk back by tonight and take a picture since I didn’t get one last night)

    It was a beautiful night on the boardwalk. We got quite a bit of play in the casino but the night ended up being a slow bleed of money. At one point tried to play roulette but gave up after I kept hitting my forehead on the plexiglass trying to place my bets. Also we had no issues drinking on the floor last night while playing machines. The wife was drinking vodka and seltzer out of a Gigi bottle and I was drinking captain and cokes out of a clear plastic cup and no one said a word to us. We noticed quite a few other people drinking incognito.

    It’s a beautiful morning to sweat out a hangover.

    We are at Landshark last night( sit down outdoors). This morning we got breakfast from a quick service place at Hard Rock for breakfast and brought it back to the room.

    Trying to figure out dinner plans now. Had a reservation at Guy’s chophouse on the pool deck at Bally’s but got an email from Open Table last night around midnight that the restaurant canceled our reservation. Never had that happen before and they don’t open til 5pm to call and find out what the hell is up.

    Some little hits from this morning. A little better than even today. Hoping to win back some of what we donated last night.

    I wouldn’t wait until 5 to call. When we were there Monday they were winging it and I’m not even sure they have a phone on the roof top. The actual restaurant on the 3rd floor did not know if there was outdoor availability and sent us to the 6 floor outdoor space.
    The rooftop checkin station said all reservations were being made through the hotel I suspect that’s why your reservation was cancelled. Good luck in getting a sit down spot!

    I called when I woke up this morning and the number for the chophouse said they open at 5. I tried again around 1:00 and still got the machine. Someone from Bally’s just called me and said that they weren’t supposed to be taking reservations from Open Table like normal and the restaurant is double booked all night and everyone who reserved on open table got bumped.

    I told the guy I book the table a week ago. I also told him that I am Diamond plus and give CET a lot of money every year. He said it didn’t matter and that there was nothing that they can do for me. Just when I thought CET AC couldn’t screw up the pandemic situation anymore they go and surprise me again.

    Sadly I’m not surprised because of what I saw Monday. They were treading water and trying to make the best of what they were given to work with. Sorry about your luck. That was our biggest disappointment was finding a viable food option. We usually eat well in AC. Our past trip it seemed like fast food overload.
