The people who live on the Island are scary! I walked from WI to downtown Wheeling and back, and there were people giving me the dirty eyeball at every turn. Here's one dialogue:

Toothless guy sitting on front stoop: "You got a cigarette?"
Me: "No, sorry."
Him: "Don't be sorry, motherfucker..."

I still use that one!

I miss the pizza place that closed in downtown Wheeling -- what was it, DiCarlos? Great pepperoni rolls...

I hope it was daytime, otherwise, you're just leaving it up to God.

DiCarlo's did not close down, they moved. They're on Main Street now, just before Wesbanco arena, across the street from River City Ale Works. The location is much nicer, and they even invested in some decent decor.

There are many DiCarlo's around here, though. A few of them are franchised, so to speak, so don't count on them all to be the same. You would particularly want to avoid the ones in Warwood and Moundsville.

YouBeatMyAces,

If it's during the day, they will often be fairly busy, except the tables. They still do pretty well on buses, for now.

Currently...

All BJ Tables are H17 with eight (8) decks, no late surrender, and 2 decks cut-off.

Once again, I've never seen a casino change their rules on games as much as Wheeling Island. I've never been a huge fan of the place anyways, but they really need to get their act together. The Meadows offers 8-deck, S17, with surrender, and the table minimums are probably about the same, if not CHEAPER than WI.

As soon as Hollywood Columbus opens up, that place will be filing bankruptcy within 6 months!
