I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Bill's closed today

Bills - formerly The Barbary Coast closed today. I have to say I am really sorry to see it go because it was the best parking on center strip. I don't like to park in a casino where I am actually going to play so this was often my parking of choice. In the really old days when teaching someone how to count cards we would often send them into the Barbary to get their first barring under their belt. It usually took less than 10 minutes. There was a time in the 80s when they kept a Polaroid camera in the pit and would try to snap your photo when they backed you off. I miss you Barbary, but I will miss your parking lot more.
