Today I came across a new organization named Trenton's Bad Bet . They are making an attempt to derail any attempt for casino expansion in northern New Jersey, which I like and is better for all. The only group NOT opposed to this is the Iron Workers who will gain by building the doomed casinos.
A similar posting appears on my Facebook page.

"Effective Oct. 3, Monte Carlo hotel-casino will close its pool as well as the outlets located along the Street of Dreams including The Pub.
The venues will close as the resort begins a $450 million transformation that will include two new hotels -- Park MGM and The NoMad Las Vegas. Construction on the new hotels is expected to be complete in late 2018.
Monte Carol hotel guests will still be able to use a pool during the closure. Guests will be given access to pools at MGM Resorts International sister properties. Options will be provided upon check-in."
Before booking ANY hotels, always check the final cost. Many hotels add a "resort fee" that will considerably add to your bill, unless you get such
a ridiculously low price for your vacation that it won't matter.
