Poker? I Hardly Know Her!
Back from the City of Sin. Atlantic City is like Las Vegas, but a little seedier. Examples:
1. The Boardwalk is too friggin' cold at the end of December. It was windy and deserted. No warm desert sands there.
2. The shows are pretty fun. We saw Legends in Concert. The Tom Jones impersonator was good. The Elvis looked pretty authentic. But the woman who was supposed to be Whitney Houston looked like Patti LaBelle and sang like Eartha Kitt.
And the backup singers were all VERY much the Jersey girls - big permed hair, surly expressions, heavy accents when they sang.
3. I didn't win any money. I lost $26. If I'd gone to Vegas, I would have won or lost bigger..and probably would have had a good Las Vegas naked showgirl story to share with all of you.
4. As it is, I had a lovely time, and I discovered the joys of video poker. And I had some good diner hot chocolate.
5. I love New Jersey.
