East Coast Gambler

Stuff from the various places I write.
  • 24 Hours of Neon

    Last week I saw a video called "24 Hours of Neon" being passed around twitter. After seeing the link one too many times I decided to see what the hubub was about and was pleasantly surprised by this HDR and time lapse video of Las Vegas . It's...
  • Cantor Gaming Continues on its Plan of World Domination

    It wasn’t too long ago that sports betting meant that you placed a bet at the begging or halftime of a game, you watched the game, and then collected on your win afterwards. Sports betting is one of the few games in the casino that if you are skilled...
  • Delmonico Steakhouse - The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino

    I love steak and have made it my mission to visit every fine steakhouse in Vegas – on and off the strip. Not just every steak dinner but every meal I have, is measured up to Delmonico Steakhouse . The first time I stepped into Delmonico Steakhouse...
  • BOOM: Bye Bye Desert Inn

    In light of the pending implosion of The Harmon , Vegas Inc. decided to list the Top 10 Vegas Strip Hotel implosions. I love implosions and figured this was a good excuse to visit the youtube archives. For the next couple of weeks I’ll grab video of...
  • Jersey Boys Leaving Palazzo For Paris

    Last night news spread that “ Jersey Boys ” ( buy tickets here ) was leaving the Palazzo in Las Vegas for Paris Las Vegas . Normally I wouldn’t care because I’m not much of a show guy, but Palazzo without Jersey Boys is like having a radio on mute...

  • Kendra Parties at Wet Republic

    Wet Republic at MGM Grand continued it’s celebrity pool party fun this weekend with Kendra Wilkinson from The Girls Next Door . She was with Holly Madison and some other girl, but does anyone matter besides Kendra? Even through Kendra is wearing a bikini...
  • Get Hoppy at Green Valley Ranch

    Two things that are near and dear to my heart are Vegas and craft beer. They don’t cross paths often as finding a microbrew in a casino is as difficult as walking away a winner on the big six wheel. I’ve talked before how a microbrew oasis exists...
  • Stay Out Of Atlantic City Today

    Just a warning to my east coast peeps: Hurricane Irene is heading up the eastern coast and the New Jersey government is asking people to evacuate and the Atlantic City casinos are closing - at least for today. Atlantic City’s 11 casino hotels are expected...
  • Hard Rock Casino Only Mini Casino Still Alive In Atlantic City

    It's not very surprising that the other applicants for a mini casino in Atlantic City have dropped out and the only remaining mini casino project planned is the Hard Rock Casino . A new program allows the state Casino Control Commission to issue...
  • Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay

    I’ve been to Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay almost ten times in my life and this goes back to before gourmet burgers being a trend, which is only a few years now. Although many fancy new burger places have popped up over the past few year years, ...
  • It’s Still Pool Season In Vegas!

    Pool season in Vegas never stops, it just takes breaks. This weekend there was an awesome combo appearance at Wet Republic at MGM Grand . Not only was Snooki from Jersey Shore in the house, but Holly Madison popped in to say hi. I have to wonder what...
  • Project Linq Adds Reason To Avoid The East Side of the Las Vegas Strip

    The Linq may be a good thing for Ceasars and a good thing for Vegas with added jobs it's not something that remotely interests me. In fact, The Linq will probably push me away from Caesars properties.
