MGM Grand at Foxwoods Opens Tomorrow - 5/17

5/16/2008 11:19:00 AM 0 Responses
A little bit of Vegas makes its way to Connecticut this weekend. The new MGM Grand at Foxwoods opens on Saturday 5/17/08. Gamblers rejoice!

I'm pretty excited to see what the MGM will be like. I've been to Foxwoods maybe 3 times and Mohegan Sun once. They were ok. Here are the details on the new MGM:

Our 50,000-square-foot casino floor features over 1,400 slot machines as well as 53 table games, including blackjack, craps, roulette, Spanish 21 and 3-card poker.

One of the nightclubs there, Shrine, is owned by Ed Kane a local restaurant & bar owner. They've been advertising heavily in the Improper Bostonian and such. Here's a little on Ed:

Under the Eat Well Inc. umbrella, Kane went on to open the restaurants Tosca and Stars, and FireKing Baking Co. in Hingham; the seasonal Quincy nightclub WaterWorks, which will soon reopen as the Marina Bay Beach Club; and nightclubs Estate and Suite in Boston.

Foxwoods World Poker Finals - 10/22

10/22/2007 03:53:00 PM 0 Responses
The Foxwoods World Poker Finals starts today and runs through November 13th. For those of you that are big poker fans, this could be your ticket to $$$. I know a fair number of folks that use poker to supplement their incomes - I'd do it too, except I'm not a big fan of gambling.

As my friends who play online always say. If you play blackjack, you're playing against the casino and the odds aren't in your favor. If you're playing online at 3am, you're playing against drunks and stupid people, and it's easy to take their money. I can't attest to this personally, but my friends seem to make decent money.

Well, it's time to leave the computer at home and head down to CT and interact with some people face-to-face. Put on your googley eyeglasses and crazy hats and what ever else you learned from watching the World Series of Poker on TV and hop in the car.

See below for the schedule of events.
