November Happenings at New England’s Casinos

When I think about November in New England, a few things come to mind – an Old Fashioned Thanksgiving, the fresh-chilled air, leaves all over the place, homemade apple cider donuts.  Matter of fact, in the entire region, the harvest is celebrated, and restaurant menus are loaded with comfort foods. November is also a time for lodging bargains in New England. Give yourselves the early holiday gift of a romantic getaway or staying at a quaint B&B.  Make your casino trip not just about the casinos, but take in all that is New England this time of year.

NETimeGambling.com suggests two websites to get in touch with New England in November:

  1. NewEnglandNetwork.com, famous for Yankee Magazine.  It’s Yankee November 2018  is already published.
  2. From the website TripSavvy.com, check out the Kim Knox Beckius post called November in New England  which includes a list of the “Top 8 November 2018 Events in New England.

A fun time was had by all!

NETimeGambling is a non-monetized blog created for my personal interest and passion in the gambling industry – its history, and its ongoing evolution – mixed with my love for New England.  Come share my passion and visit us.”

I has been involved in music all his life, including 40 years of choral conducting, and performing professionally in different musical genres since he was 10 years of age.  He has performed in Mohegan Sun’s Wolf Den, Foxwoods’ Atrium Lounge, and Twin River’s Lighthouse Bar & Lounge.” (All venues in New England casinos)

Twenty years ago casino gambling became a side interest. The business, the history, the expansion across the U.S., the myths, the superstitions and innovations of legalized gambling all became a fascination. The goal of  NETimeGambling is to provide a service and resource for any recreational gambler visiting New England’s expanding casino market
