Saturday night on pow-wow weekend - and our best band in the house. This should be interesting. I opted to leave the wallet and cell phone in the glove compartment, not wanting to dick around with the temp lockers for the night, seeing as I won't be using them much anyway.  With Cherry off on&hel...

    As I'm driving in to work I notice with some reluctance that the parking lot is even less full than usual. In a way I'm not surprised, really.  Pow-wow for the local tribe is this weekend, so there's always fluctuation in the crowd. Also the state fair is on. Both of those things tend to…

    Sunday night, and the crowd is light... I'm sure there's a song in there somewhere.   'Twas a very quiet shift, honestly.  The regular folks who were there when I arrived buggered off (quite uncharacteristically) very early in, and we pretty much just had foot traffic for the night. Now it w...

    The parking lot 'bubble' was nicely present when I drove in. It's just a thing I've noticed over the years, that the parking tends to be in an expanding arc in front of the main entrance.  I'd venture it's many places but I've never paid it any mind until now, because it's somewhat of an…

    It's that time again!  Convention Center Concert Night! (Please note my expression of unadulterated excitement.) Okay - to recap for anyone who doesn't know, generally our casino puts on one big show a month. It could be, as in this case, a country artist of some note. It might be Elvis impersona...

    "Let me explain - no there is too much.  Let me sum up." We'll just write off my missing week or so with a quick recap of major salient points : Poker tour came by with all of its pomp, snarkiness, and rainfalls of dollars. Our newly returned Joan is now our once-again departed Joan…

    Yes - I'm getting a little behind on my writing. :) I'll catch up after a while.  Life gets busy.   Next up : ... Not entirely sure.  But soon-ish.

    It was a very off-kilter feeling day. To an extent, a return from vacation is often like that, but there was more to it I think. The surface read, as I walked into the back of the House, was feeling that as ever, vacations are very pleasurable, and entirely not long enough to boot. It…

    The parking lot was looking pleasingly occupied when I drove in to work last night. Not bulging full mind you, but a decent array of Sunday folks.  As it's my last shift prior to a short vacation I'm taking, I make a point of heading around to the schedule case to see if next week's…

    Saturday night, and I'm booked for the lounge. Better still, because we're still short-handed from Morgan's need to have a physical altercation with a co-worker, we're down another bartender. We have two in the house total.  Myself, and Jerry the Older.  Normally, this would mean we'd just shut d...
