Harrah’s Recap

On August 29th, BlackBook hosted 25 incredibly fortunate individuals on an all-expense paid getaway to Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City to attend a VIP BlackBook Party staged at Harrah’s hotspot, The Pool After Dark. If you’re enraged with violent jealous, it’s totally understandable. Check out our weekend itinerary to understand why.

Saturday, 3:00 pm: 25 anonymous BlackBook subscribers and their selected partners in crime arrive at Penn Station to meet, greet, and commence debauchery. After relaxing in the ACES train private lounge for the zippy trek, the group arrives in Atlantic City. Greeted by a fleet of stretch limos, the lucky crew is swept up and delivered to the front steps of Harrah’s Resort and Casino.

Saturday, 6:00 pm: Guests check into complementary, luxury hotel rooms, rush to the casinos to hit the tables and test their luck trying to double their hard-earned salaries. BlackBook guest overheard calling a lucky streak at blackjack table a “primary investment”.

Saturday, 11:00 pm: As the infamous Harrah’s Pool After Dark dance ritual begins to unravel, guests congregate at BlackBook’s private cabana and begin an all-night dance and drink clinic. A slew of anonymous BlackBook guests strip down to their skivvies and take a dip in the pool, surrounded by rowdy partiers, while others are content right beneath flowing white sheets above the cabana, imbibing copious amounts of free liquor.

Sunday, early morning hours: craps, roulette, blackjack, Texas Hold’Em. BlackBook guests pick their poison. Some win, some lose, and all leave the casino at the crack of dawn with new friends and shards of dignity.

The Day After: In an attempt to nurse hangovers, the BlackBook crew takes part in daytime pool extravagances (i.e. more drinking, more dancing) as well as the relaxing amenities Harrah’s has to offer, including world-class dining, the spa, golf, and shopping on the pier. With plenty of time before departure, they recapped the previous nights’ events with knowing grins.
