Choosing Good Venues and Casinos for a Fun Evening

The Lake Central News is the online student newspaper of Lake Central High School in St. John, Indiana. The staff is responsible for covering the current news of our school and outside community. The staff is overseen by its own editors for writing, design and photography. In this short article, we will comment on how to find a good venue to spend your time with family and friends.

Choosing Good Venues

A convenient location means different things for different events. For an event with attendees within a limited geographic range, a venue within a reasonable distance from most attendees’ homes or places of work may make sense. Better still, if attendees are being housed at a single location, hosting the event at that hotel mitigates the need for valet parking.

Not only does the venue need to be responsive to youChoosing a good venue - tiresome task for some, a joy for othersr needs prior to the event, but it also needs to have adequate support staff on site during the event to respond to the needs and requests of you, your staff and your attendees. As tempting as it might be, don’t make a budget after you’ve seen great but expensive venues. Make a budget right at the beginning and stick to it. Provided you choose a good quality, experienced venue committed to making your training productive and interruption free plus keeping your delegates nourished and hydrated with food, drinks and snacks, you’ll get far more from the event.

Proper Casino Etiquette

Casinos can be overwhelming to the newcomer. Many of us wander around the fast-paced floor confused, while massive crowds of people all seem to know exactly what they're doing. What's more, there is the constant watch of surveillance cameras, security detail, pit bosses and dealers compounding the pressure.

One of the specific casino etiquette rules you should pay attention to even before you head onto the floor for the first time is to become familiar with the casino’s dress code. If you are dressed inappropriately, a casino can turn you away at the door or ask you to leave the property. What may be inappropriate clothing at one establishment might be acceptable at another.

Most, if not all, casinos in the world don’t take too kindly to customers taking photos of the gaming floor. So, if you want to capture that Vegas moment of bustling roulette tables and banks of slots, buy a postcard unless you want a sharp word from casino security.

You should avoid counting your cash at the tables or anywhere in the open in a casino. This is not only considered bad etiquette, but may attract the attention of undesirables like pickpockets.

The world of casinos can be overwhelming at timesIf the cards are dealt face down, then only touch your cards with one hand only! If you break this rule you will almost always get a sharp rebuke. Be gentle with the cards; don't bend them or put drinks on them. Some players have tried to cheat by bending specific cards slightly, for example the aces, and the dealers have to guard against this.

Your personal electronic items are also frowned upon in the casino. No electronics, including cell phones, can be used while seated at a casino game. The thick walls of most large casinos block cell phone reception anyhow so you have to walk outside to get a dial tone. In the sports book of the casino, pagers and cell phones cannot be used at all.

When jumping into a game that’s already going, it is important to politely ask the current players if they mind. The addition of a new player permanently alters the count, and the current players may feel that a new player negatively affects the outcome of the game for them. You of course have the right to sit down, but asking is the polite thing to do.

Remember – a good deal of these rules apply to online casinos, strange as it may sound. For example, takes rules and regulations of gambling very sersiouly, and you should to. Remember, those rules aren't there for the heck of it – they are there to ensure that everyone is having fun and that no cheating is going on.
