over the summer we went to a house warming party and the hosts had a monte carlo night. we played roulette and black jack for a few hours and had a great time. bobby decided that's what he wanted for his birthday.
then when school started the pto had their teacher welcome back luncheon and we hired a taco guy to cater the event. i brought home some of the leftovers and bobby said that's who he wanted to cater his birthday.
so the party was planned. add in 55 of our closest family and friends and we had a bash to end all bashes.
i loved playing roulette at the first party but never had a chance to play it here. everyone had fun betting and watching the ball go round and round.
the most popular table was craps. first of all the dealers were great. they helped most of us learn how to play the game. and the game has such excitement around it. all of the people standing around. the pressure on the roller. chips go everywhere.
there was cheering, yelling, laughing, mulligans, betting, throwing and all kinds of shenanigans going on at that table. i got to play for a little bit at the end of the night. i had to join in the party. i think some of us gained enough knowledge to try it the next time we're in vegas.
and then my brother did us a huge favor by handling the black jack table. he had the mat and the cards and stood in as the dealer which helped save us some money. thanks jorge. everyone enjoyed it.
i put out a deck of cards for people to leave birthday wishes on.
the night was a huge success. bobby was a happy guy and everyone had a great time. something tells me that 41 will be a good year to do this again.
