    Apparently they are having the Bourne premier tonight at Caesars. Was anyone invited to this? I don't play that much at Caesars properties, but when I do I play big enough to be a little pissed off that my host didn't tell me about it if they invited players (perhaps it's just industry people).

    Also, apparently Matt Damon is a relatively large gambler. This may have been a promo shot, but those are live Cosmo chips...looks like 4 spots @ $10K:

    I wasn't invited! But I'm also not surprised in the least. : ) Ironically I watched 3 movies of his this weekend. Well, probably not ironic because two were Bourne movies. I was totally oblivious a new one was coming out, but makes sense they were on this weekend haha!

    Bummer you didn't get an invite. Are you in town? If so, I'd be doubly peeved!

    I wasn't invited either.

    This would actually be a cool event to attend.

    I'm not in town, but I would have gone for this. It's fine if it's just industry people, but if they invited some players, then my host dropped the ball. Usually casinos grab some of these seats for themselves - especially since it's at the Colosseum which has a capacity of like 4,000 people.

    Apparently Aria is involved in it in some capacity too. They were putting these edible arrangements in the rooms of people there for the premiere. Would have been nice to know about this whole thing.

    Oh well.....I guess I should have kept an eye on CharityBuzz or other sites like that. They always have tickets to events like this (and their after parties) for less than I would have lost on 1 hand of blackjack going to this thing lol. Hell,

    There are great stories of Damon playing blackjack during Vegas filming of Ocean's 11 and 13, too ... some good stuff from him about it in the commentary to 11.
