Nice, but is the rest of Atlantic City still as run down and poor as it used to be? I know there are a few New Jerseyites who post here who can answer this.

I was there last around 1990 and apart from the casinos it was really a depressing place.

I worked in Atlantic city during the summer of 1996. At a gay owned hotel. Not much worth to do at night beside the casinos. A few night clubs for gays, but being on the streets at night was risky. It was advised to hotel guest to stay in at night, if going out, best to go with at least a few other people. That's what I did, only go out with at least a few people. I went out early morning, say 6 am and it was quiet, few people walking about, go for a morning stroll along the beach before going back, make breakfast, than begin my job. There was'nt one movie theater in town, nor a supermarket, till mid summer. That closed down becaue of rampant shoplifting. I spent 5 months there. I have no wish to return.

It was struggling even before the financial meltdown. I'm sure gaming is way down among non gambling addict, middle class patrons.

Ashbury Park is New Jersey's version of Provincetown or Rehobeth Beach.

Come on down. A.C. is perfect for queers. They're the worst card players (poker and blackjack) on the planet. Instead of paying attention to their cards, they're always trying to strike up conversations with players. We love it. The casinos also like their gambling action because they're guaranteed losers. When they finally go broke, the dumb queers thank all the other players, shrug their shoulders and return drunk to their hotel rooms. Most queers drink like fish, which helps make them even bigger suckers. The booze is free in A.C. casinos and the queers drink exotic girly booze concoctions with multiple shots of liquor. When they order their weird drinks, we immediately peg them. Most wear thin legged jeans, white socks, penny loafers and lots of gold jewelry, which many end up pawning in the numerous A.C. pawnshops. More money for us poker players.

When they get drunk at the poker table and start their incessant blabbing, we pretend to be hanging on their every word, laughing at all their dumb jokes. We don't want them to leave the table until we get every last dime. We encourage them to go to the many nearby casino ATM machines to get more cash "to try to get even," etc. LOL

Queers - keep on coming ... oh wait.

You playing craps here, bull craps that is. I worked at a gay hotel, many guest came to go to the casinos, and won. I went to the first casino in the city-Resorts, enough heteros came ther to bet, lost and came back next week to do the same, and drunk to. What you describe isn't just waht gays do, so do heteros fullhardly continue to gamble. Not me, I have no interest in that activity. Why gays kept comming, because they usually won. Others came only for the shows and buffets. Gambling is'nt just done by gays, more heteros there losing to.

one good looking casino dealer I had sex with several times as he walked back to his apartment, me, I walked the beach early morning before I started my day. He would have his shirt on, he noticed me admiring him, and under the peir we'd have sex. He worked at Trumps. That's what I call a "shore bet" when I took a chance on this good looking guy. Yep, I was a winner of a gamble. Then some hotel guest that won were so happy, they asked me out to dinner with them.

True, I worked there at a gay hotel. Gamblers come at all levels of skill, regradless of orientation, he just wants to bullcrap that gays are the largest group of losers. He forgets that most in any casino are heteros. More people lose than win, orientation is not why. Like I have'nt seen heteros drunk and gambling and losing.

What I said is that you have the most lurid homosexual fantasies to be found anywhere on topix, and that that fact suggests something about you.

And you reply, "Okay...have it your way."

As we suspected about you all along.

I suspect that the phrase used, "have it your way" could be he works there or eats a lot there!

I worked there the summer of 1996 and it is still rundown. The areas surrounding the casinos ok, and up to Gardeners Basin, nice. All else is blighted. One of the few places I enjoyed was Ocean One mall, now owned by Ceasers casino, the Irish pub I also liked, but then had a murder there, then the owner of the hotel I worked said lots of crimes downplayed as to not scare off tourists/gamblers. If true, thats wrong.

A.C. residents are overwhelming the welfare crowd, leaving the city totally blighted and without a supermarket which they shoplifted into bankruptcy over five years ago. City government is black run and will never change. Crime has skyrocketed in the past ten years. Gov. Christie has sent in special state police to guard the so called casino/tourist district. Bankrupt A.C. laid off sixty cops this year but rehired thirty of these starting this Memorial Day weekend.

The brothas and sistas of A.C. welcome queers with open arms because they know that queers drink like the fish in the Atlantic and are always "hungry" for all the strange stuff they can get.

The first part of your post, I agree. I was there the year the supermarket opened. It was shoplifted often till they had to close. But for blacks welcomming gays/lesbians? Maybe some, most don't. As I said, our guest were warned to stay in at night unless in a group, most the guest stayed in. "Drink like fish"? No, the only 2 gay hotels, the one I worked at catered to those that belongrd to AA (Alcoholics anynomous). We had only one guy that would drink a lot. He was banned from returning. There were 3 gay bars. Plenty of hetero bars, such as the one I mention, the Irish Pub and you think those people did'nt drink till drunk? Of all the casinos there with all those hetero bars, you bet there were heteros drinking like fish. What's this "strange stuff" you say gays can get? I'm gay and did'nt get "strange stuff". Nor did anyone in my sight. 2 gay bars, one was gay freindly (meaning all were allowed-gay, lesbian, Bi, hetero). The gay population, thier buisnesses overshadowed by the hetero buisnesses. You think others don't read your wrong info? That others have'nt been to A.C.? I've been to all the casinos, public places, the attention is geared for heteros by the tourism beauru. With the arrivals comming to town to gamble, shows, a small percentage of gays will go to gamble, so some buisness to bring gays to, because gays do gamble, and bring in money to spend, the casinos will accommodate as many as they can to gamble. I worked for the owner who he and his freind were born and raised in A.C. I got my info from them and my own observations. New York has a larger gay crowd and they come to A.C. to gamble and see shows. makes sense buisness wise to have something going to bring them and have them come back repeatedly. Believe me, they don't come to A.C. for the gay activity. Not much there and N.Y. has much more to offer for gays except gambling. So a few attractions to make it comfortable to gays while in town.
