  1. my best casino story is the one when i won the jackpot.

  2. I don’t really like gambling that much, but the only other time I went to Horseshoe Casino was to see Bob Dylan last summer.

    As he took the stage, everyone hopped to their feet and cheered, and then after a moment, sat back down. The people in front of us continued to stand, which is fine with me, it is a rock show after all. We just moved a few seats over. But then some guy behind us starts yelling at the kids standing to SIT DOWN. They turn around and shoot him a dirty look, and continue standing. The middle-aged drunk guy’s wife goes up and taps them on the shoulder, and says “Please sit down, it’s really making Drunky angry” to which they say “We can stand if we want to, it’s a rock show.”

    Now this is all happening during the very first song, and it’s not like watching Dylan stand behind a keyboard is so exciting that you need to see every second of it. They would have probably taken a seat after the first song ended. But Drunky charges up, grabs the kid by his shirt collar, and slams him into the ground, knocking over a row of empty chairs. And then he sits back down, satisfied to have handled the situation.

    This makes everyone in that section really uncomfortable, and for the next ten minutes, security doesn’t do anything. Eventually the kid gets them to listen, and the police show up and cart Drunky off, but it was still one of the most violent things I’ve seen at a concert.

  3. Hey Drew…interestingly, we were at that Dylan show (Review) and we saw those goings on as well. I didn’t see the push, but saw the effects and was annoyed that for a security seriously hounding so many people about cameras and other things, that it took them so long to respond to this attack. It was really sad to see something like this happen at a Dylan show.

  4. my wife and I had taken a new couple friends of ours to the “blue oyster cult” show at the casino a few years back, this couple had never been to a casino.
    The room where they played was not oversized, so it was an intimate show and the sound was great.
    “B. O. C.” rocked our socks off!!

    after the set, I suggested we go in and I would teach them how to plat roulette. Reluctantly, they agreed.
    Two hours later, we were leaving, and i was a couple bills short…but the other three were all 250+ ahead, and you couldn’t make them stop talking about how awesome the whole night was.

    so…let’s see.. great rock show
    good food and drinks
    and everyone’s a winner.

  5. Panic. It crept up my spine like first rising vibes of an acid frenzy. There I was. Alone in Las Vegas, completely twisted on drugs, no cash, no story for the magazine, and on top of everything else, a gigantic god damned hotel bill to deal with. How would Horatio Alger handle this situation?

    What was I doing here? What was the meaning of this trip? Was I just roaming around in a drug frenzy of some kind? Or had I really come out here to Las Vegas to work on a story? Who are these people, these faces? Where do they come from? They look like caricatures of used car dealers from Dallas, and sweet Jesus, there were a hell of a lot of them at 4:30 on a Sunday morning, still humping the American dream, that vision of the big winner somehow emerging from the last minute pre-dawn chaos of a stale Vegas casino.

  6. going first day of new year from the party… wasted and funny. i bought the outfit last year and she was totally wasted….it was called little caesars and it was a tradition. sometimes you win and you can play penny slots….

  7. REAL COCO PIE

  8. School’s out for the summer…

  9. School’s out forever. School’s been blown to pieces.

  10. A Creep Loco I

  11. My best casino story is the one where we went to a casino and a Rod Stewart impersonator was there. The real deal: shoulder pads, pink coat sleeves rolled up, making moves on the geriatrics in the crowd. I’ve never danced so hard.

    ACE RICE POOL

  12. Pro Cola Icee

    any size only 89 cents at Speedway :)

  13. I’ll do both since I’m one of Alice’s biggest fans, and this economy has delivered the worst year of my life and I can’t afford to go to this show and eat this week.

    POLICE RACE: That’s when you race to get the police when some drunk dude tells you to sit down at a rock show!

    My best Casino story is also my only Casino story. I’m not a gambler. When I attended a trade show at an Indian Mafia casino a few years back, my generous boss gave me a hundred bucks to gamble with. I can’t play cards worth a damn, so I looked around and found a “Creature From the Black Lagoon” slot machine which quickly sucked my cash into the black waters of said lagoon. Now I tell people I was robbed by a one-armed Creature From the Black Lagoon.

  14. That’s O POLICE RACE! As in “OH, POLICE! POLICE!” Sorry for leaving out the crucial letter!

  15. 22 cents at the Derby baby! (obviously I am not a great gambler, but the tracks and casinos sure like having me…!)

    A COOLER EPIC than ALICE COOPER there is not!

    Thanks for the opportunity gents!

  16. I didn’t get an email! My friend who works at the Horseshoe keeps calling me and saying, “Listen to this!” Alice and the boys have been there rehearsing for the new tour all week. Apparently, Alice has announced that he’s giving a free show to all the employees of the Horseshoe before the tour kicks off. How cool is that? Who won?

  17. Yes, who won?
