13 Things I’ll be doing today in Atlantic City!

13 Things I’ll be doing today in Atlantic City!

Today, in honor of Thursday Thirteen, I will be heading to AC to have a little fun. Ok, the first part isn’t true, but the second is! We got a free room at Harrah’s. We’re not big gamblers but hey, you know, economy’s tight and I guess they are even trying to reel in the little fish. So I’ll be:

1. Playing the penny machines. (HEY, I said I’m not a big spender!)
2. Accepting the free drinks (HEY, they’re free!)
3. Sleeping in a beautiful room at Harrah’s.
4. Enjoying a nice dinner with my new husband. (Ok, we’re NEWLY married but he’s not so NEW to me!)
5. Avoiding the smoking sections of the casino.
6. Wandering around and checking out this sprawling 113,000 square foot casino since we’ve never stayed there before.
7. Just plain wandering around.
8. Window shopping at the Waterfront Shops (Did I say window shopping? Remind me of that later.)
9. Wandering over to check out the Borgata.
10. Wandering over to check out Trump Marina.
11. Hell, just wandering.
12. Playing the penny machines some more.
13. Crying when I’ve run out of my pennies.

Ok, SO this list is lame. I’ll admit it. But I don’t care; I’ll be in Atlantic City enjoying myself. See you on the flip side!

On of my fondest memories was playing blackjack in AC on my 21st birthday. It was a trip and a half. Enjoy!

Jeanne - Mr. Nina and I love going to Casinos. But we play the quarter slots. We can spend hooooours on $60. Last time we went we even won $47 on a quarter ... quite a thrill. LOL! Have fun.

I've got 13 things you need when you NEED them

hee. A lot of wandering.

Both DH and I are more blackjack people. I don't dig slots.

Have fun! Win lots!

Have a great time! Window shopping is the best! Take a camera, you'll see stuff you never expect to find. And have fun!!!

This might encourage you...

I went to AC the first time under duress - totally did NOT want to hang out in smelly, smoky casino all day and night - and played the quarter slots.

Literally on the next pull after having said "I never win anything, anyway," I won $200.00. I'd spent maybe five dollars, tops before the payoff.

So who knows? Maybe you'll make a nice win, too? (I lost the rest of it, anyway, so I figure I only rented it.)

Happy TT!
Best of luck! :)

WooHoo! Have a wonderful time and AVOID THE BLACKJACK TABLES!!!! Trust me. They look innocent, but they are money suckers.
Enjoy yourself.
