Another Labor Day "event"?: H.U.T @ A.C. FT (Louis) C.K.?

Postby BestInShowBrian » August 7th, 2012, 10:16 am

Surprised not to see this in here yet. I know a bunch of us are meeting up for a Louis C.K. show in Atlantic City on the Saturday night of Labor Day weekend (9/1 - never forget). I've also heard that some people are showing up without tickets just to hang out and drink (before and) after. Being social-media ignorant, I feel compelled to ask if anyone has nailed down plans yet? When are people flying/driving in, and what days and nights are they hoping to be there? Any ideas for a base camp like a bar or casino to hang out in and bump into each other? Anyone got their eyes on a specific hotel that they're staying at so we can all gravitate to similar locations?

Personally speaking, until I hear more details, my plans so far are: me and my special lady friend are currently planning to head up on Saturday, and likely stay the night and leave Sunday. The Louis C.K. show is 10:30PM that Saturday, at Trump Taj Mahal - Mark G. Etess Arena, so I'm probably going to try to get a room at that place (which will no doubt be rediculously expensive and perhaps even booked up this late in the game; anyone know A.C. and can give me a better idea?). We'll probably share a ride (not sure if bus, train or car rental yet) and a room with Vealchop, and we'd likely be open to anyone else interested in going in on ride or room with us.

Who's in so far?

Shawny Murphy, Amanda, and I will be there - we're going to stay over, leave Sunday. I know that Steev the Larper is planning on doing the same.

I'd like to gamble, drink, and eat before and after the show.

Where do you want to meet up?

Have you guys scored a hotel room (or rooms) yet? Where?
I've never been to A.C., so can make no recommendations on meeting places. I'm open to suggestions.

Fuck Facebook.

So, I'm booked in the Trump Taj Mahal Hotel Chairman Tower, which was rediculously expensive, but it's the same venue as the show and I don't know any better.

The bars there look like they'll be asshole-to-elbow in douchebaggery, so I'm not lobbying for them as a meeting place.

We'll probably end up taking a bus down from Port Authority Saturday afternoon for a 4PM check-in, and be checking out by noon the next day.

We got a room at a nearby place that we'll have to take a cab to and from. We're on the same time schedule as you. We had fun when we met up at the sports bar in the Tropicana: http://www.tropicana.net/nightlife/a-da ... sports-bar

That's around 2 miles from the Taj Mahal and seemed to be ok. There were a lot of other places there. I have no experience at the Taj Mahal - these spots may be good as well. Let's find a good starting point.

I will flying into Philly on Friday... land about 5 pm. Not sure what I will do/go/stay at this point. I leave on Monday afternoon. I can honestly say I do not care what/where/when/how. Everything is new to me and will be fun no matter the circumstance. I have left it intentionally open to see what others are doing.

The bars at the Taj Mahal looked to be all disco douchebags and pole-dancing bullshit. I think there's a lobby bar, but it closes at midnight or something. So I'm thinking the Taj is out. Like I said, I've got no experience with A.C., so without any other recommendations, I'm OK with settling in on Tropicana's "A Dam Good Sports Bar" as Ground Zero. But does it have to be 2 miles away from the Louis C.K. venue? Assuming you picked that because it's near your hotel, is there anywhere in between? I'm thinking 1 mile away is a walk on the boardwalk, where 2 miles everyone is cabbing back and forth. Probably not a big deal though if there's no other ideas (experience trumps proximity in my opinion).

Do you have people in Philly, or are you considering heading into NYC or Jersey before (and/or after?) A.C.? I should probably confer with my girlfriend and Vealchop (my other girlfriend) before I make an official offer, but as it stands we could probably squeeze another body into Vealchop's queen size bed if you wanted to go in with us on the A.C. hotel. I also asked Orbitz to have the hotel send up an extra bed (probably an uncomfortable cot) to allow for any people who didn't book a room (laughingly believing they'd vomit, rally and drive home at 4AM after getting blasted all night) to at least pass out somewhere without getting mugged.

I have no one in Philly. In fact I hadn't planned my escape from there. The whole idea of jumping on a train or bus is fascinating to me because it is completely unheard of here. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I need to plan a route. As soon as I land in Philly.. I am lost... Travelling up to nyc is not out of the question... hadn't thought about it

I only picked it because it's in a casino and I'm familiar with it. It isnt near my hotel. Where would you like to go?

Fair enough. Sounds like the best idea we've got so far. I'm probably going to push to grab an early bus that Saturday, and maybe log in a couple of beach hours. Hit me up if you get into town early and I'll let you know where we're at (celly in your Private Message).
