Blogpire News

Blogpire Podcast - Liquor Snob - All The News that's Fit to Drink 10.24.06

BlogPire Podcast - Autumnal Festival Episode - Fun Fall Products 10.09.06


Casino Snob Book Club
We kicked off a new category with a look at the perennial casino book: Bringing Down The House. Its a fine read, and you should deffinitely check it out.


Casino Style
There were a couple of Casino Cocktail Fridays. We sipped on a Tequila with Let it Ride and we had a frothy cold one while we played the slots.

We had some smart advice from Jack Colton to never wear sunglasses in those night clubs.

And finally in style, we took a great look at Old Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra, and took an overview of the best of the Vegas Music CDs of that classic crooner.


Casinos
The Battle of Connecticut began, with our look at the two big casinos in CT, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun. The battle still rages on, and we're excited to see round 2, but for now you can check out the Tale of the Tape.

We found out about the Casino And Gaming Fund and how you can bet on the house.

And finally we learned a little about Kevin Costner's Casino Adventures, and why Nevada may be getting a little more smoke free.


Entertainment
THe big news was of course our look at all the stuff going on for Halloween in Vegas. We are thinking that next year we will have to schedule a trip there for just the week of Halloween, as nowhere else can we slide on our Marilyn Manson costume and potentially win twenty thousand dollars.


News

Playboy made a big swing early in the month by opening up its new playboy club at the Palms.

We also covered a funny and crazy bank heist that looked like Ocean's Eleven.

But all that sex, crime, and rock and roll could not outshine the big bomb of October, the online gambling ban within the US. We are still dealing with the reprocussions, which have included places freezing accounts, buyouts, and mergers galore.

Yes, it was a wild October, and we're excited to see what happens next as we head into the Holidays.
