Saturday is the big day. Ronnie Mund's Atlantic City Block Party
Who's going. Please give us a full report of how much Ronnie and JD made an ass of themselves in Harrah's poker room. I assume the poker tournament will be held there if not it will be in one of the convention rooms on the third floor.
Who the fuck pays to go to a Ronnie Mund "block party"??? And Howard is an asshole for not shutting this nonsense down.
that's what i've been trying to figure out. there's nothing funny about it, just an old man screeching to a bunch of brain-dead idiots who got scammed out of money to watch some of the most uninteresting, dull people who have ever been associated with the HSS.
JD, shuli and ronnie....a thoroughly disgusting trio (i don't know who else is involved. whenever discussions of the block party come on i tune out.
They said AC is totally ghetto, like less than two blocks from the casinos...sounds like a classy place with a capital K.
I spoke with somebody who worked for the casinos or AC ( forget it was about a decade ago) and he said the problem was AC is in the most densely populated state in the Union with Philadelphia 35 minutes away and NYC 2 hours away so the casinos major business are consumers who rarely stay overnight. They park, gamble, maybe eat, maybe see a show and go home. Whereas middle of nowhere Las Vegas is a destination vacation with the average stay is 3 days so Vegas needed to develop its ancillary services and keep itself clean.
AC is a shit hole that one time was a cute town. Gambling was supposed to be a quick fix to resuscitate AC fortunes but the government couldn't get out of the way so areas next to the casinos are populated with government dependents who can't be bought out, priced out or lured into jobs to improve their fortunes. That's were the Bellagio was smart, they built a stand alone complex away from the boardwalk (and not around the corner from the blight) and is the big hit in town.
Howard would never shut down the Block Party because it benefits him in several ways, especially financially. The guys are creating content for the radio show and HowardTV on their own time while being paid by someone else, it's the perfect situation for him. It's also free advertising and publicity for the show and HTV and Howard LOVES it despite what he says.
