Karaoke & Trivia in N.E. Casinos

imagesOk, you know who are!  You’ll request the latest tune on the charts, or even something like “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey and wait for your turn so 20 minutes late you can dazzle (or not) an audience of friends and strangers.  Well, there are places in New England Casinos that enable (oops) I mean encourage you to show your inner Katy Perry or Jason Mraz.

9 Reasons to Visit a Casino – Besides Gambling

Other Reasons to Visit a Casino Besides Gambling?

Other Reasons to Visit a Casino Besides Gambling?

So, do your friends and relatives tell you they don’t visit casinos because “they don’t like to gamble?”  Sure, the casino industry tries to dazzle, and mislead us, with big promises of  the financial possibilities and the vast array of games to make money.  But, aren’t we smarter than that? In this age of casino resorts, casinos as vacation destinations, and casinos of all sizes and amenities, there are many more reasons to venture out…..at least just once.

Here are NON-GAMBLING OPTIONS – in no particular order:

ENTERTAINMENT – Whether I pay for it or have a concert comped freebie (Free? – we both know better), I love the entertainment casinos offer, whether it be 30 miles away or across the country in Vegas.  Whether it be Cirque in Vegas or at Foxwoods.  And let’s not forget some of the local talent featured in every size casino.  he offerings in New England’s seven casinos are astounding in scope and variety.  Let’s not forget Mohegan Sun has one of the top arenas in the country.  Whether it be pro basketball, college basketball, pro lacrosse or the best talent on tour, it’s a destination to take advantage of.  Speaking of SPORTING EVENTS – Boxing matches, basketball, arena football, CES cage fighting, Pro Lacrosse – these and more I have enjoyed at casino arenas. My two favorite events: #2 – PBR Professional Bull Riding in Las Vegas, and the Connecticut Sun of  WNBA Basketball at Mohegan Sun.  In New England, Twin River Casino, Foxwoods, and even Plainridge are now offering great entertainment and sports.

STAYING IN A BEAUTIFUL HOTEL – Sometimes, I just like to kick back, away from sounds of ringing slots and screaming winners. I still remember staying at Wynn and Cosmo the first time in Vegas. I just love that “ritzy” feeling of staying at a great hotel.  Soon, we will have more choices than the great accommodations in Bangor, or in CT casinos.  Wynn and MGM are coming to Massachusetts, complete with their luxurious brands of  service, decor, and amenities.  For now, Foxwoods offers excellent varieties of rooms and suites for your luxury vacation.

Vegas Vacation

Here’s some people for watching

PEOPLE WATCHING – Remember that movie title – “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” Watching people at a casino, hotel lobby, lounge, or club includes all three and everything in between and beyond.  Seriously, have you ever wondered how many people don’t have mirrors in their home after watching people out and about?  But, the creme de la creme usually linger around the casino gaming tables , so check them out and give  yourself the opportunity to mingle with the wealthy crowd or network to form new relationships, both private and business. You never know who you might see – celebrity watches in Las Vegas turned up Ashton Kutcher at Aria when we stayed there. Pretty cool…..

 

SOCIALIZING – Catching up with friends and socializing is another very common reason for visiting a casino. We will often meet friends for coffee and just to catch up, never spending a dime on gaming because many times the casino is in between us. Watching a sporting event on massive TV’s chowing on some wings can be a great group time out.  With gambling options of social gaming and stadium gaming, there are cheap ways to gamble as a group, if the interest arises.

EATING & DRINKING – I know singles and couples visit the casino to enjoy a few drinks at the bar or dance at a club. My wife and I enjoy the vast offerings in dining available. Whether it be a terrific buffet, a gourmet burger, fine dining, or something in the food court, there’s always something for everyone.  Many casinos now feature famous chefs seen on TV.  Don’t forget KARAOKE & TRIVIA, found at Newport Grand, Foxwoods, and Twin River.

ACCOMPANYING A FRIEND OR GIVING A TOUR – “I just wanted to see the inside.”  “Someone brought me here.” Being that someone can be fun. So bring a partner, relative, friend or colleague.  Many tribal casinos will include historical background, tours and museums. Being a “Tour Guide” for a newbie can be a real ego boost, and it doesn’t have to cost anything except walking around.

THE DECOR – Ever walk in the Bellagio Garden in Las Vegas, or walk on the beach outside of the Biloxi casinos? The AC Boardwalk is a wonderful stroll on a spring afternoon. Take a good look around and you might be surprised what artistic and natural beauty you may see. Some of the world’s greatest architects has built amazing casino buildings & attractions.  Sculptures, paintings, lighting – heck, even new casino carpeting – can be a wonderful eyeful of artistic stimulation. (ok, maybe not the carpet, but casino carpets are still pretty interesting to notice.)

RELAXATION – As a means of relaxing and letting one’s hair down, casinos can offer a great way to unwind from the many stresses of life. Going for a walk in an empty casino in the morning can be surreal. The pleasant, elegant and relaxing atmosphere of the casino itself can be a major source of appeal in itself – without the people of course.  People tend to ruin serenity wherever you go.  Spas, pools, craft brews, and even cigar clubs can get you away from the sound of slots.

SHOPPING – yes, shopping, from small retail stores to malls as large as the largest casinos.  One of the most famous would include the Forum Shoppes attached to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.  But no doubt, Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods has anything  you could want to buy.

Yes, a casino is more than just gambling.  It’s all what you make of it.  Check out the many things offered through our  links above.  You might find something you never realized you liked at a casino…….without gambling!

That’s all for now!

In New England, listening to a tribute band is as much of a draw as listening to others – or even yourself – like Karaoke.
