MGM Springfield is No Match for CT Tribal Casinos – The Monday Link

EVERY MONDAY, NETG BRINGS YOU A GAMBLING POST FROM SOMEONE ELSE FOR YOUR INTEREST, ENTERTAINMENT, AND KNOWLEDGE. WE CALL THIS:

“THE MONDAY LINK”

I’m going to share a recent link today from staff writer David Collins of the New London Day. This editorial brings up interesting points concerning MGM Springfield’s success as a “resort” and how the tribal casinos in Connecticut could have an advantage if the Bridgeport casino  actually came to fruition. His opinions are always thought-provoking, whether you agree or not. Let’s see if you agree or disagree with Mr. Collins view of the casino battle in southeastern Connecticut.

Last year we attended the maiden voyage of a great gambling get-together, GAMBLEPALLOZA.

Gamblepalooza saw fabulous podcasters and avid gamblers mixing, playing, socializing, eating and having fun in CT at Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun.  Highlights included:

  • Lots of craps played, with a special reserved table.
  • The Centrale meet-up in the Fox Tower -a wonderful time to drink and chat.
  • The Keno Breakfast at the Veranda Cafe.
  • The Group Slot Pull

The First Gamblepalooza group at Centrale, Fox Tower.

It’s On AGAIN

Today’s link features the information for Gamblepalooza 2 – in Atlantic City. Make your plans for a chance to “celebrate your love for casinos, gambling, and dining in Atlantic City! This is a casual gambling gathering, feel free to attend as many or as few events as you like. Be aware certain gatherings do REQUIRE an RVSP. ”

Comix Roadhouse at Mohegan Sun Opens

 Country music, mechanical bull riding, a Texas-style food menu, 30 craft beers on tap, a full bar and even line dancing!

No, we aren’t reviewing Treasure Island’s  Gilley’s on the Las Vegas Strip, we’re looking at the new Comix Roadhouse at Mohegan Sun.

What do you do with two once popular rooms of slots and video poker from the original 1990’s casino plan? – Turn it into a multi-faceted country & comedy venue unlike anything in southern New England. For almost a year, Mohegan Sun has been expanding the Comix Comedy Club, preparing it for the big opening this weekend. Mohegan’s newsroom reports it will be a “….state-of-the art venue presents a mix of regional country bands, local performers and entertainment on the new Roadhouse stage. The club will continue to offer its popular stand-up comedy and alternative entertainment in the Comix Comedy Club section of the venue.”

The menu will feature authentic Texas-style offerings such as smoked brisket, pulled pork and more with a focus on farm fresh ingredients delivered daily, along with Comix classics and local Craft beers.

“Because Mohegan Sun is a major tour stop for the top Country music artists like Keith Urban, Darius Rucker, Kenny Chesney and so many others starting their careers in the Wolf Den, many then going on to play big arenas like ours, it’s such a perfect fit to welcome Comix Roadhouse, a new country attraction to our entertainment venues “, said Tom Cantone, Sr. Corp Vice President of Sports &  Entertainment of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment.

Entertainment includes:

  •  #TBTKaraoke every Thursday
  • Live, local & regional country music every Friday & Saturday night
  • Mechanical bull riding, and Roadhouse dancers.

Comix continues its run with stand-up comedy. The comedy club at Comix Roadhouse is open every Wednesday through Sunday with entertainment nightly and late-night shows Thursday through Saturday.

Check out the opening this weekend. You’ll have a great time – darn tootin’!
