Podcast 80: Old Cuban; Alec Bradley American Classic Cigar; Frequency of Gambling Sessions

Podcast 80, 8/19/12 … Jason and Tony loosen up the podcast format a bit; we start with an on-air mixing of the Old Cuban mixed drink (thoughtfully introduced by a caller) then, while sipping away, reminisce about the Alec Bradley American Classic cigar. Then the conversation winds up with a simple question: From the casino’s perspective, does it make more sense to play more frequently with a smaller bankroll, or less frequently with a larger bankroll?

    I’m running behind on all my podcasts. That pesky little thing called work!

    I’m really looking forward to hearing about the junket to Tunica. I have to imagine that CET is chartering a plane and using Saginaw as a central spot for everyone in your area who they are taking down. The upside is that the charter will most likely go non-stop and you’ll be wheels-down right in Tunica.

    Keep in mind that the casinos are only 30 miles from Memphis. If you start to get hammered early in the wallet, you can always rent a car and escape up there for an evening. Friends have told me that the food and music live up to the hype.

      The bright side … Tony’s Tunica trip was just matched by a mailer Jason received last week from CET, for four nights on a charter from Grand Rapids to Laughlin, NV. Woohoo.

    We’re actually in the development of AccessLaughlin.com. (We know it will be a small potatoes affair, but we own the Access name for Reno, Laughlin, Biloxi, and AtlanticCity so we’re simply going to build all of them out).

    Be super-cool to hear about the trip should you decide to take it. Laughlin is really pleasant in the fall and winter, and sits on the scenic Colorado River. Expect an older crowd. No douchebags!

    Avis has a counter at Tropicana Express casino, and I highly recommend a 1/2 day trip to do the historic Oatman “ghost” town (it is inhabited and has food, drink, and shops) trip. Follow with me on Google maps here:

    You’ll want to cross the river into AZ and continue on Bullhead Parkway until it bypasses the city and puts you back on AZ 95. (If you use 95 directly all the way through Bullhead, it will take more time but you’ll see all your WalMart and other big box stores in case you need to pick a few things up). From there, it is 15 miles to County 153 (Boundary Cone Road) which will take you directly up to Oatman. If using a GPS, do NOT take the shortest route from Bullhead to Oatman (Silvercreek Rd. or Oatman Rd). It is pretty much all gravel though the middle of nowhere.

    You are now on probably the most famous “wild west” portion of old Route 66. Don’t head back where you came from. Keep following old 66 out of Oatman for 20 miles of some of the most amazing mountain scenery as you twist over the pass and down into Kingman, AZ (a historic railroad town in its own right).

    From Kingman back to Laughlin is an easy 30 minute drive on a (mostly) straight, 4-lane US 95 and AZ 68.

    You can YouTube much of Oatman-Kingman portion in real time:

    (Note: The road isn’t as bumpy as the video indicates. He obviously had the camera bolted to his motorcycle, which won’t be as smooth as a car).

      Wow … see, this is the benefit of having a local advocate for local tourism. πŸ™‚ I can already picture the scenery in my mind.
