A Fundraising Night At Captain Morgan's Casino
Last night, Captain Morgan's hosted a Valentine's fundraiser for the SAGA Humane Society in San Pedro. It seemed like a pretty good deal...$20bzd donation for the fundraiser and you received a $10USD ticket to use at the casino, a rose and champagne, live music outside and free drinks while you were gambling.
I am by no means a gambler, the idea of feeding money into slot machines sends me into a comatose state, but I'd never been to the casino and hey...it was a good time to get the scoop on the only good sized one on the island. My friend Bonnie was my Valentine's date and an avid casino fan so...off we go.
We left at 5:30pm on the Coastal Express water taxi. Captain Morgan's was providing free boat rides to the event but not until a bit later.
The casino is actually pretty nice. It has a huge bar, great TVs, maybe 40-50 slot machines packed pretty tight, a few gaming and poker tables and free drinks (did I mention those already?) I like this ticket system...makes things easier. You load the tickets in...you receive your payment in tickets. No clinking coin racket driving you to the edge of insanity. Best of all, it is CLEAN. And it doesn't stink like cigarette smoke, sweat and losers' tears in there. So far so good...
At 8pm, snacks were served. I thought the ham sliders were pretty yummy. But...I had blown through my money quickly and the place was getting crowded! Time to go. A nice change of pace for the SAGA fundraiser, something different. But I must admit...I have a soft spot in my heart for a good old fashioned cook-off.
This casino is perfect for those who like to do a bit of gambling on vacation...slots machines, maybe a little poker or blackjack. If that is your thing, you could have a very good time.
Thanks for hosting Captain Morgan's!
