SATURDAY 29th NOVEMBER : PHILADELPHIA to ATLANTIC CITY



The Lady's father and mother drove us past the gentle skyline of Philadelphia to the red and white glow of Atlantic City on Saturday afternoon. It wasn't quite the triumph of Vegas but I'm sure in the summer it would be quite a good looking place.

We checked out Trump's Taj Mahal and the new Bogarta. At both places the Lady and I argued about whether there was a hiring bias towards Indians and South Eastern Asians respectively. No matter: both races seemed just as adept at taking my cash from me.

As the Lady's father scouted around the poker hall I noticed no-one was smoking. Guys in cowboy hats chewed tobacco, young Harvard types rolled unlit cigars side to side and nervous regular Joes took smoking brakes upstairs near the Slot Machines. It's amazing to think that the effect of the smoking ban in New York and how it's slowly being introduced elsewhere. No smoking when playing cards?? I suppose they used to say 'No smoking when having a drink??'
