DFAW #129: Outdoor Dining in AC

      1 Comment on DFAW #129: Outdoor Dining in AC

On episode 129 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz Podcast, Kyle and Craig look back at an infamous meeting of mob bosses held in 1929, then talk about the latest updates since the casinos opened — but not the news about Borgata opening July 26th, since that came out after we recorded. We also provide a list of all the outdoor dining options we could find in Atlantic City (starting at 9:12 in the episode), as well as the status of pools and spas at all the casinos.

Then we discuss the American Gaming Association’s push to increase the slot jackpot tax reporting threshold from $1,200 to $5,000. If you don’t know what the “slot jackpot tax reporting threshold” is, it’s when you get a handpay (and a W-2G).

We finish the show with our review of episode 10 of Boardwalk Empire.

Also, go check out the videos from Atlantic City vlogger Tiffany Gambla. She was in AC for five nights starting July 2nd and is posting a video for each day she was there.
