    I love it 100%, MADE MY DAY!

    Bobbie Brown. Such memories. OMG, I might have mentioned it before, I don't remember. My absolute favorite song from a while back has to be, "My Prerogative" by, Mr. Bobbie Brown. No doubt!

    The song was a huge hit in late 1988 as I remember. For those of you who don't know, Bobbie Brown was a kid when he left the music group "The New Edition" and went out on his own. The rest is stuff like his marriage to Whitney Houston and his reality show where Whitney told Bobbie to "Kiss her A**" and accidently aired, etc., etc.

    So fast forward, today the breaking news is, "Bobbie Brown had sex with a ghost". In his interview with 20/20 Bobbie Brown stated he was not tripping and totally sober when he woke up after having sex with a ghost in Georgia. He also stated he, 'did the deed'.

    Hands down, I can relate. Nothing has renewed my vows to relive my past and explore the things that come to me----like what Bobbie Brown states and publically puts out there.

    Every part of his song "My Prerogative" has memories to me and brings back some great times in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Winning table max wagers, smacking the table, going onto the boardwalk and living it up, etc., and so on. It was the winter of 1989 and I remember very clearly to this day the following:

    Playing baccarat in the small high limit room at Bally's Grand, the southern most casino hotel on the boardwalk. I used to be mostly a Trop World/Tropicana player at the time. I just married and my wife's friends all were large Bally Grand Players/Resorts and Trump Plaza players. I started to play at The Grand of course and quickly became a regular there on weekends coming down from New York City. As far as the players in the room, we basically all knew each other from New York City. There were 2 large 14 seat baccarat tables there. The kind were the players used to handle the shoe and deal the cards, etc. Steve Wynn just recently sold the place and Bally's was kicking butt against all the larger properties. Serious money back in the days was on the table, always!

    There we are playing, a guy that was a regular there at The Grand was a Japanese guy named "Mr. Y" (short for Yamamoto) and my wife's three friends, Kim-Kim, Gina Kim and Mia Kim (3 Korean sisters). Many other regulars as well, table on both sides, 7 players on each side was full as always. 3 Dealers and 2 floor people. Pit manager and casino manager were generally always in the pit at night. I remember with distinct clarity this one weekend. We were playing for about an hour, pushing money back and forth. Mr. Y's wife pulls this little stuffed giraffe out of her purse and it is perched on top of her purse with its head resting on the rail of the table. The purse was in her lap to give it the height it needed.

    Our host came in, a Korean lady named Lillian Lee, her two brothers were also hosts there, Jimmy Lee and Don Lee. She pats us all on the back and says, get the house tonight guys. She knows gambling, she was a gambler as well but could not gamble in New Jersey due to her having a 'key' license. She was also a family friend and we would always be eating out in NYC together. Connecticut casinos were not around yet, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun so she would go to Vegas of course, later on we would all go to the Connecticut casinos together to play baccarat.

    The shoe gets to Kim-Kim, Gina and Mia, and then gets past to me. I take it, wager up on the Bankers side, everyone else follows on our end of the table. The opposite end of the table is all Players side. Not that they were wagering against us, they were wagering with the shoe. Each of the 3 sisters next to me had just made 3 Players in a row. I am about to deal the cards, I tell My Y, 'come on--put some cash up there, you chicken--you go home'!!, so My Y, threw up a stack of orange chips and I do the same. I make a big deal to match our stacks the same as a dealer paying out a winning wager. I put mine side-by-side with his and run my finger over the top of them, etc. Then he throws up more and he stands up. He always used to do that when he had a table max or near table max wager and he did not have possession of the shoe. He stops me from pulling the cards, he puts another stack of orange chips on top and clearly he is over the $10k table limit. The banker dealer personnel on our side of the table yells out, 'player takes' and the floor acknowledges it. They never used to break down the bets to count it out. If you win they would break it down and kick back anything over the table max as well as if you lost, then they would kick back the overage and keep the table max amount, etc.

    So now I am getting impatient of course and so are most of the other players. I turn back to Mr. Y, and say--'Can we get busy'? Mr. Y, turns to me and says in the Bobbie Brown type of lyrics', "Get Busy"! I deal the cards, one to the croupier dealer personnel standing up and the other under the shoe, the third card to the croupier again and the fourth under the shoe for the Bankers. The croupier slides the 2 cards face down to the highest wagering on the opposite end of the table. Mr. Y, is standing up and I told him to sit down, he wouldn't. His wife was petting the giraffe's head, she always did that on the larger wagers. The Players side returned a Natural 8. Our faces are long. Mr. Y, is now hunched over the rail, standing with his 2 hands balancing himself on the padded rail of the table. I look at the one card and it is a monkey. I look at the other card and it is a four line card. I am mumbling, "Everyone's Talking", over and over, a verse from the song, "My Prerogative". Mr. Y and the 3 Kim sisters are all standing and talking s**t of course. The other end of the table gets all quite. I let go with another verse of the song, "I don't need permission to make my decisions". Then there was another guy to the right of Mr. Y's wife on our side who owned a restaurant in New York City and it was known for the karaoke and after hours stuff there. He undoubtedly knew the song also. He lets go with a very clear "They say I'm nasty but I don't give a damn". The guy is smacking the table and smacking the table verbally reciting---'I know it's a damn nine, I know It, I know it, I know it'. The table is loud, real loud. Everyone is there, the hosts, the pit manager, the general manager. You have an easy 50-60k up on our side and probably 30-50k on the opposite side. The rest of them break out in saying, 'Get Busy' a few times, loud. I slam down the 9 everyone wanted on our side and slide it up to the banker dealer sitting.

    High fives and a sign of relief. Now everyone is pushing their wagers up for the next hand to table max or close to it. Most of the other side went to Bankers, and in those days of the late 80's and 90's they would tend to follow a side that pulled off a win like that against another good hand, as a prelude sign to the side was strong and getting stronger. Banged out at least 12 Bankers straight and took table max each time. The table nearly cleaned out the chip rack and in those days they held real close to 1.5 million dollars of chips. By the end of the run there was everybody and their brothers on the floor in the high limit room around the table watching.

    Just in case you don't know the song>>:

    I remember when the trop was trop world. They had basically an indoor amusement park. I remember riding the roller coaster and playing all the carnival games.

    Yeah, lots of history with Trop in A.C. Ramada Inn Hotel Company around 1979 buys the famous Vegas property and in 1981 they want to enter the east coast gaming that just came about in A.C. They buy the hotel and enter the A.C. market with the name Tropicana Atlantic City.

    Lots of memories there for us, most memorable was the concerts seeing Tom Jones and Tony Bennett. LOL, WOW!

    1988 or 1989 it is renamed Trop World when Ramada spins off its casino properties to their new corporation called Aztar.

    2006 Aztar sells their casino corporation and the new owners change the name again to Tropicana Entertainment.

    They go BK eventually and Carl Icahn buys it and changes it to what it is today. They have up to $50k a hand limits and a pretty good all around property for A.C. When our hang out Bally's Grand, renamed numerous times and finally ACH closing next door, which was the original Steve Wynn Golden Nugget property, all the long time hosts and management moves to Carl Icahn's place.

    Fern Farmer is there, and is a long time family member of ours. She was always there in the high limit room at Bally's Grand with all the action going on weekends. Long history with that property Bally's Grand as I wrote about.

    1995 it is renamed Tropicana Casino and Resort. Then in the early 2000's I think around 2004 to compete with the new Vegas style Borgata coming they build 'The Quarter' with dozens of restaurants and numerous shopping stores, with the Cuban theme.
