19 May Never Say Never at the Casino de Monte Carlo
I love gambling…stick me at a charity auction with fake money and I become a high roller whose favorite phrase is, “let it ride.” Real money? Not so much! But as a Sean Connery and James Bond fan how could I be in Monaco and pass up an opportunity to play the odds at a table in the famous Casino de Monte Carlo? Yours truly gambled alongside my much more gambling savvy buddy Elizabeth for a whole 35 minutes successfully…and then not so successfully. Still, we made it out without having to wash dishes, promise our souls to the devil or explain to our husbands why we were in debtors’ prison.
For obvious reasons, gambling establishments frown upon cameras and recording devices so sadly I am unable to share photos from the inside the casino, but trust me it was old school, lavish and very worthy of James Bond. It had a great bar and fantastic fabrics and furnishings. Outside, hot cars were parked rear -facing for a “quick getaway” by celebs and local millionaires. After all, it is Monte Carlo…
