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
