Last Saturday we hosted our first Casino Holiday Party and needless to say it was a huge hit! The event was hosted at the beautiful 1818 Club right here in Duluth and brought to us by Monte Carlo Productions. Upon arrival we were handed $25,000 in play money and offered an open bar. We were all very eager to jump in knowing that the one with the most money at the end of the night had the best opportunity to win one of the great prizes. These included a JVC TV, Invicta watch or my goal prize, an oversized bottle of Veuve Clicuot Luxury Champagne! As everyone made their introductions, grabbed a cocktail and a snack they were off to master the tables. We had something for everyone, Craps, Roulette, Texas Hold Em’ and my money winner, Blackjack! These tables made a great way for people to mingle, meet and join in conversation. This is how I honed my skills, learning from the master at each table. I managed to be one of the high rollers but failed to win the champagne. The dealers were very patient, informative and made it very entertaining! The combination of delicious food, no loss of real money and great company made for a very unconventional Christmas party that we intend to repeat next year. We hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Enjoy some of the pictures from this year’s party!
