    My Trip Report

    We are going to do this semi live. The adventure begins in a few hours. Just need to make it through the work day and make sure the kids are set for the weekend.

    Mr and Mrs Wallew will be staying at the Tropicana Friday to Sunday. Taking a risk with the room as it was set up by my new host at the Trop. Keeping fingers crossed.

    This weekends itinerary includes dinner tonight at the Chelsea 5 Gastropub (first time), going to the “Price is Right Live” tomorrow at Harrahs, eat one last meal at Harry’s Oyster Bar at some point (Harry’s closes forever at the end of the month), drinking too much and typical gambling activities.

    Stay tuned for updates.

    About 1 1/2 of work to go and a 45 minute ride home.

    Hopefully the Mrs has everything ready to go by the time I get home. Probably not, as she is nursing a pretty hefty hangover from being at the Brooks and Dunn concert last night with her best friend.

    Curious to see how the crowd is this weekend with the seven stars event going on. Hoping to meet up with some of them in the poker room later tonight.

    Work is done. Quick trip home, get things together(we’ll see how quickly this happens) and another quick trip to AC.

    For your listening pleasure in my absence.

    Definitely the @Wallew version of the Jeopardy theme song. Similar but just a little more fun.

    We went to Harry's the other week, we were seated inside, but outside there were tables and a band playing out in the courtyard. Our meal was a little off, like it was sitting under a heat lamp for too long. I would like to check out Dougherty's Raw Bar at Resorts for Happy Hour, I believe this is 7 days a week. I'm not sure if Harry's has Happy Hour on weekends. Best of luck!

    Edit to add: Cycles of Life @ 3015 Boardwalk rents bikes by the hour. It's about a half block south of Tropicana. Great way to work off that demon rum. Also, Jerry Blavat, the Geator himself, will be spinning hot stacks of wax this afternoon at Bally's Beach Bar. If not this afternoon, get there over the weekend, the weather should be cooperative.

    Finally made it. Getting on the road here took longer than planned. This happens sometimes when you have 4 women in the house.

    Ended up in the south tower. Normal king with a side ocean view. Called gastropub and pushed our reservation a little.

    Played bar top poker for an hour or so. Ended up playing next to a younger guy named Will. Spent a little time giving him a crash course on comps.

    After 4-5 drinks each we made it to the Gastropub.

    The wine glass makes it look like you’ve got an earring. Actually, a pretty good look.

    I would give dinner a solid 8. Food was good but the service was outstanding. We will be back again to try more of the menu. Hands down the best service that we have had in a while in AC.

    Now enjoying a smoke on the boardwalk. Beautiful weather but a little quiet for this close to Labor Day.

    Meanwhile the Mrs is inside trying to figure out what machine is calling her.

    Good morning VMB. Sorry about last night. Got to gambling and drinking more and the posts kind of died off.

    Here are some hits from last night. Played quite a lot and ended up down about $300. I also played about 2 hours of poker and finally left up a few bucks.

    The Gastro pub had a steak and egg special ($12.95) which is delicious. I’ve found their service to be outstanding also. Never ate dinner there, thanks for sharing.
    We will be there in two weeks. Can’t wait…:biker:
