Does this word ring a bell ?

SHILL : An accomplice of a hawker, gambler, or swindler who acts as an enthusiastic customer to entice or encourage others.

Be very careful with using free play, match play and buffet coupons at Borgata without further play. They are notorious for rescinding offers for people who use the freebies without emptying their wallet afterwards.

They really don't need the business of once in a while players and will not think twice about cutting the offers from the rest of the year if they are not satisfied with your ADT.

I once booked a Comp. room in 2015 and cancelled it last minute to avoid the no show fee. I have yet to receive a comp. room offer on ANY day since.

That's about the same time I stopped getting comp offers from them. I couldn't figure out what I had done. The only change in my play was that I had always stuck to craps and one day I took a break and played 5 hands of BJ (1st time in 30 years). Won 4 hands in a row then quit when I lost one. A couple weeks after that I looked at my offers and the free stays had gone away. I figured somehow that BJ play triggered something in their algorithm but maybe they just decided to tighten up across the board and you and I got purged from the favored list.
My goal of being well informed conflicts with my goal of remaining sane.

Iíve literally only gone to borgata to pick up free play and comped food.

Itís just scraps at this point but they didnít cut it off all together.

"After the show we ate at Bobby Flayís steakhouse. And while a hate to make this sound like a whiney trip report, it was a textbook underwhelming and overpriced celebrity chef experience."

Flay's restaurants are tourist traps.
Hey, we watch Bobby Flay on TV,
lets eat there! Over priced blah food
all so you can text your brother in law
that you're at Bobby Flay's. Guy Fieri's
restaurants are the same way.

Tony Bourdain hated Fieri with a passion.
Said he's a talentless buffoon as a chef,
all his talent is in being a host on his shows.

Yea they are pretty much all Tourist traps.

The one exception Iíve found is Gordon Ramsayís pub in Ceasars AC. Every meal Iíve had there has been stellar.

Guy and his restaurants are pretty much a joke. His BBQ joint on the AC boardwalk has decent pulled pork though.

That's why any "celebrity" chef has a show. They're good on camera. Has nothing to do with how well they make food.

Anthony Bourdain was good on camera, too.

And I guess Bobby Flay, as well.

Imagine how many chefs there are in the world who make better food than anyone on the Food Network, but they just happen to be boring people.

I love cooking and went to cooking
school for a year. I realized how much
work it is cooking for a lot of people
and said, hell no. I still cook from
scratch every day, even make my
own bread.

Bobby Flay is a good cook, he's won
Iron Chef several times. I've never
seen Guy Fieri cook anything, just
talk about it. Bourdain was a very
common chef, but he never claimed
to be anything else. I miss him.

I ate at Guy Fieri's place at Bally's AC shortly after it opened - seriously underwhelmed - will not go back
