If you want to step out for a bite: Red Rose Pizzeria. A short walk. Btw, Boston South Station. Yuuuge navigational error!

I hope you make enough from the slots to pay for all those lawyers or else make enough from the settlement agreements to enjoy the slots.



My total expenses on lawyers in 4 years has been under $5,000 and that was ancillary expenses like filings and process servers and other things the attorneys wanted me to cover

So yeah I make enough

It helps to find lawyers willing to take your case on contingency

Darkoz,

For someone running an operation with the breadth and mass of your current successful ventures, it doesn’t seem like 160 freeplay and a hotel room would be enough to get you out of bed in the morning, let alone take a series of busses for.

Don't question it. Just roll with it. He is scouting and plotting a total takedown of that joint with the broken TVs. He is going to get helicopter money, one day.😃

Duplicate. Seems witelesss connections are fickle on the commuter rail.


MBTA? Fickle would be a nice way to put it. More like unusable.

I didn't realize this place was open yet, need to check it out soon. The design of the rooms looks pretty cool and unique!

Day 2: exploring

The complex is really huge but unlike Foxwoods its crammed into a very large city block

Rising in my room I'm parched. Perhaps in keeping with the Victorian motif there is no microwave AND no refrigerator. But there are USB ports and flatscreens (when they work)

One feature I have not seen before is a U.S. mail button


So if you are interested in pulling a Howard Hughes you can still have important documents mailed and delivered

The hotel hallways continue the Victorian motif with art deco sculptures






One warning: Try to get a room near the elevator otherwise you may find yourself walking all the way down this hallway


I sacrifice for you guys to take these pictures of the descending elevator thru the glass doors that makes me really dizzy







This is NOT part of the casino. Its actually directly across the street. Courthouse and police station! So if you are a gambling cheater you dont have to be concerned about a long ride to your court appearance


This IS part of the casino. Thats NOT the hotel. Thats the parking garage


This IS the exterior of the hotel. The parking garage is larger lol. While its a large complex the hotel is only 7 floors


Here is the view as you turn the corner to enter the complex from the main street (which I believe is coincidentally named Main Street)


Yes, you are seeing a castle!!!



Its actually an Armoury they didnt take down. They own it now and are turning it into a banquet hall

The casino gaming area entrance


A row of connected stores and outlets
As you see the outside continues that old architecture motif (ignoring a giant projection television)






Down this row are Tap sports bar, a bowling alley and arcade and golf.

Golf in the middle of a city block?

Indoor golf. Real clubs and ball, fake locations

Note the gas-light motif continued even here


There are comfortable chairs to lounge in here and a full bar in case you want to try swinging those golf clubs while seeing double


Prices are $60 per hour for up to 6 people. Thats per cubicle so a full complement of 6 people is only $10 per person. Pretty reasonable!

The bowling and arcade was closed for a special event so this is the best I could get of the interior


They also have a Regal Cinema but that doesnt open until Sept. 28th. The escalator to the theaters was guarded by security so couldnt snap off an image

If you lose all your money there are a few no fee amenities


2 hot days in August and I saw not one person at the pool


There is also a giant outdoors Chess and Checkers game with movable pieces the size of hubcap and a game board so large you can play hopscotch with the squares. The pieces are lightweight plastic - a 3 year old could lift them. I was about to photograph when a huge downpour hit and I ran for indoors

There is also an extensive reading library and lounge area


Thats in the hotel lobby!!!

Real books for your enjoyment




If you are one of the only two people on the planet interested in Applied Mycology circa the 1940' (that old English vibe again)


The casino itself is entirely non-smoking per Massachusetts law. If you intend to run outside and smoke in front of the lobby think again. You need to be at least 25 feet away from the walls and doors of the complex. So middle of the street for you smokers


Yes that is my reflection in the glass doors!

But notice how I MASK my appearance using sun glare and the signage

These are the techniques you must learn to be a Professional AP

I'm interested in the Pai Gow Tile situation if you get a chance to take a look at that.

I saw all their table games and they do not have Pai Gow tiles
