Taj had the best casino promotions according to Casino Player magazine. I tend to agree. There's always some promo just about every day.

The bankruptcy story about Icahn somehow profiting even with a closed casino with the tax breaks makes me not care if they close. Seems possible Taj is lying to get what they want then they'll do an about face.



I don't know about that. The story about the Taj closing was news all over the country. The board is not going to vote for a decision that goes into a public bankruptcy document. No one is going to book a room past December 12th even if you still can. Would you plan a trip and then find out a couple of weeks later that the property will be closed. How about New Years Eve. Could you imagine living in New York City booking a room for Dec 30th and 31st and then have to change your plans. What are they going to say in few weeks. False alarm, we were bailed out. This doesn't even take into account employees who are terminating leases on their apartments and have accepted other jobs. Just can't believe they are going to play around with people's lives in a stunt to force someone to keep them open.

I always like their noodle bar: The Rim. i know it wasn't great, but I enjoyed it and the Taj in general.

It's too bad people can't find a way to make AC work: maybe one day in the future...
Lack of prior planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on my part.

A bunch of creepy casinos closed or will close soon. Tasteless, poorly designed joints. The floor location at Revel is weird at best. Monorail connecting Cape May and ocean towns, transportation hub Washington - NYC, Panama City, Florida type high rises along the coast. AC needs a major investment. Billions upon billions.

Carl Icahn caved into Union's demands.
I'm shocked by this.. never thought Icahn would blink first.

so I guess the bad beat jackpot lives on

Yay. I was grandfathered into free rooms there from Plaza and was hoping to visit before it closed. I got busy, but now I can probably make it up there mid January.
