Good things are gonna happen..
1/2/10, leaving was a whole another matter......because of what happened on Xmas day, security was ramped up, to enclude pat-downs and hand checking all carry on bags before getting on the plane. The flight was an hour and twenty minutes late departing Aruba.
We were told that they will be upgrading the rooms, new furniture, carpet and I guess paint. I guess the lobby area also. I was told that Rob Smith is a do'er and not a lipservice kind of guy. The casino was still open when we left for Jersey on Sat the 2nd, is it still open, who knows.
