Casino Night Spotlight:


Philadelphia Skyline ~ "The view at Loews was spectacular"

Thursday, June 26th, the Philadelphia Chapter Association of Legal Administrators and its business partners met for an evening of gambling and networking otherwise known as Casino Night. The people at the craps table were the noisiest and loudest of the gamblers. This is typical of craps table. Not sure if it’s the game or the people that are attracted to the game. Everyone was shoulder to shoulder and hands went up in the air on several occasions.

Bruce Gosbin commandeered the black jack table. He was giving instructions to everyone (including the dealer). People were enjoying themselves.

The roulette table was the most subdued but again packed. There was very little space between players – very integrating.

The view at Loews was spectacular. This hotel has recently undergone some renovations and the end result is stunning. We were chatting with the bartender (don’t judge me). He told us that Loews was built around 1936 and much of the original façade was kept intact to preserve some of the history.

I had the privilege of meeting some new business partners, reconnecting with some other people as well as meeting many of my peers. A special thank you is in order for our members of the board who coordinated the event. Everything went off without a hitch. The event was a success. It’s important for all of us to take a step back occasionally and just build on our relationships.
