You Also Gotta' Know when to Fold 'em.

Okay, this post did not start out intending to be iconoclastic. I have come to praise Caesar('s Palace), not to bury him…

Okay maybe not.  But with all due respect to Armin Strom, I just cannot get too worked up about their latest offering -

This is the Royal Flush.

I have to be honest, I find casinos to be about as enticing as an oozing sore.

Now in all fairness, I have no doubt that there are folks out there who will be clawing at their wallets to retrieve their AM EX cards, but I am not in that camp.

I go back and forth about luxury industry partnerships - be they celebrity or activity based.  Some are interesting, and some make no sense at all.  Poker and casino games have been often-visited themes.  Millions of people still flock to Las Vegas, so clearly there is an interest there.  But by the same token, millions of people think that Thomas Kinkade's work should be featured in the Louvre…

You gotta' know when to hold 'em...
