Atlantic City #ZorkFest Day 1

Started the morning with an energy drink and an egg everything bagel with cream cheese then headed over the Verrazano Narrows Bridge (formerly the longest suspension bridge in the world) – over the Outerbridge and down the Garden State Parkway to the city by the sea:

Pulled into the Caesars AC valet (my home for this evening and checked in:

Made it to the room:

 

Just surprised some of the #ZorkFest crew at the @CaesarsAC Diamond Lounge – great seeing them all again and now relaxing a bit before we all head over to Chef Vola’s for dinner.

So apparently there was an East Coast earthquake – but I did not feel it – did you?

Alright – off to Chef Vola’s:

The food lived up to the hype – it was like dining at a friend’s house – the conversation was lively and the cast of characters dining ranged from “friends of ours” to tourists – if you can get a reservation definitely go.

While waiting for a cab outside, I noticed a cat hanging out on the porch of the house next door to Chef Vola’s so I snapped a pic for @TippingOddslv.  Naturally, the $40 I had in my pocket must have fallen out because it was not there when we arrived back at Caesars – thanks Mitch! lol

Afterwards – we all headed back to Caesars and played Pai Gow Poker at a Reserved table – I tried a few hands but it wasn’t for me.  Both of the dealers were a lot of fun. About two hours into playing @VitosCasino and his wife, along with @Mikey9s joined the party.  We partied on and eventually headed to play some slots – all of us putting in $20 and seeing if we could hit anything – probably played about 30-40 minutes before the money dried up but had a good time:

We grabbed some food at the 24 hour – for lack of a better word – deli, in the Caesars lobby and bid a goodnight to everyone.  Excellent first day of #ZorkFest.
