Waking up around 11:35 a.m.


Packing up the car. Rebecca and I link up at the warehouse with the rest of the van crew, otherwise known as The Magic School Bus as we’re calling it on this tour.


Mike and Carlos take the front seats carrying the weight of all of us: Rebecca, Jimmy A., John, Anne, Nancy, and I.


Passing through the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel then on up through Eastern Shore.


Sharing Peanut Butter Sandwiches. Grabbing a decent coffee from a Royal Farms.


Finally arriving at the Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It’s a bit chaotic checking into the rooms – they’ve got bellmen that work for the union and are required to roll the luggage carts to the rooms. Eventually, we get all settled in and grab dinner up the hall at an Italian restaurant called Capriccio’s.


It’s very upscale considering the prices but we do get a $50 per diem for each person so no stress on the check. Nearby our table is a boisterous bunch of mobster vibin’ dudes. Enjoying a plate of Clams and Linguini with Bread and a Salad. Topping it off with a delicious vanilla Souffle and a glass of red Chianti.


Afterwards, Rebecca and I explore the casino and make our way to the Hard Rock Café where we find a dueling piano bar – people bring up their requests and these piano players just perform with a drummer. It’s quite entertaining. Getting lost in the casino is a tradition.
