Going to Santa Anita on opening day, Dec. 26th, was a ritual for most of my life. Alas, I no longer live near the track, but my heart does.

I have lived in Las Vegas for 28 years and not been to a casino on Christmas day. That is going to change today,

Old and no kids to celebrate with this year so I am officially becoming EvenBob. Off to the casino where my wife and I plan to bankrupt Station Casinos at $5 Blackjack.




Go gettem, Tiger.

For about 20 years, me, my brother a friend of his, and the 3 wives all went to a casino for Xmas. What else are good Jews gonna do on Xmas? Being from northern NJ, we'd rotate between Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods or somewhere in AC.

2016 was the last time we did it. Some of the other people got tired of the tradition.

Last year, my wife went out of state alone to visit friends. I went to the Sands in PA alone, for just 12/25.

This year, did family stuff on Sunday 12/23, then went to the Sands, checked in at 11pm and stayed until 8:00 on 12/24. That free room cost us plenty.

Does it count that I was working there both days?

I actually did go to 2 different casinos on Christmas Eve. Saw a movie at Southpoint and went to Orleans to use up a $25 dining offer that was going to expire, so I would have had to eat it if I didn't eat it.

I'm not really sure what other options there are for anyone on Christmas besides a gas station or a hospital. Maybe a park somewhere, but I'm running out of ideas already.

Played Video Poker at the Park MGM last nite
A Double Double bonus 25cent
I am sure a terrible pay table but it had a nice progressive going, 1440.00, so I played
Now home in Tampa
