I received an email the other day from a reader who is about to make his first trip to Las Vegas. He wanted to know if there were any types of rules or regulations about Las Vegas casino attire that he should know about before he went.
My stash was down to thirty dollars and I glanced at my watch. The time was six o’clock and I figured I should hit the road. I muttered to myself, “just one more hand.” This phrase had been repeated by poker players for centuries and I wasn’t about to break the tradition. I placed my five dollars on the table and the automated dealer shot out five cards to each of us. Recalling Wild Bill Hickock’s fateful last hand, I picked up the cards and squeezed them as if it might increase my odds of winning. This was another ritual that five card stud players had practiced for years (the genius who invented this move clearly needed professional help).
No, what I’m going to reveal are some of the little nuances and subliminal hurdles that are strategically set in your path to jackpot-ville. First let me say that even knowing these tips of the gambling trade, it’s a safe bet ( no pun intended – well maybe a little ) that as soon as you head out your front door on your quest for fame and fortune at your designated destination, your going to completely forget them.

The four casino s are Motor City, Greek Town, MGM Grand, and Casino Windsor. All of the casinos have either easy access form the expressway (in the case of the Detroit casinos) or a quick stop from the bridge to Canada (in the case of Casino Windsor). All of the Casinos have free valet parking, which is a plus for those of us who do not like parking garages.
To run the games get a few adults to volunteer to help you, and then decide on the games you will have at the Las Vegas Night Birthday Party. My suggestion would be to have a table set aside for blackjack. Also set aside a table they can play poker at. You can also set up a variety of other games around the room or house for your teenager and their guests to play at the Las Vegas Night Birthday Party. One idea is horse racing where there are six horses on a track and the players can bet on each horse, you roll a die and each time that horse’s number comes up they move one space. Throw three dice at a time to speed it up, and make a rule such as if one horse has his number come up on three dice he wins the race automatically.
My wife dropped me off at the terminal and as I kissed her good-bye, an ill-omened feeling overcame me. I proceeded to [link] the gate and boarded my plane. There was loud laughter at the back of the aircraft and without even looking, I knew it was our Chicago personnel (apparently the meeting had already started and beverages were being consumed). Soon we arrived in Arizona in good spirits. Our bags were retrieved and we were shuttled off to the resort to begin our meeting.

Bingo is always a fun idea. You can make a mock craps table by putting a barrier around an existing round table.
