That was the theme of our office Christmas party. So we all got dressed up, and off we went.
The venue was a bar/club near London bridge, located inside a tunnel , and had a gangster feel to it as well. It was actually very planned and LOADS of good fun !! I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would !!
First of all, we had a champagne reception, then we had the meal proper. Then the real fun began.
We were given $100 each (fake money, of course !), and away we went to gamble it all away. I was at the Roulette table for alomst 3 hours !!
I lost my initial $100 and then someone gave me another $100, and then I lost all that as well. Then, I found a chip on the floor (worth $10). I put it on the table, and then BOOM. The ball landed on that number, and there I was with $3600 !! I gambled again and again and again, and before I knew what happened, I was fooling around with around $10,000 !! At the end of the day, I had about $6000, when the lady said she was about to close to table. So I risked about $5000 and lost it all, only to be told there was going to be a prize for the best gambler !! So, on the last throw, I was left with $900. And I won !! I was given the prize for the best gambler !!
On to dancing.......................
All in all, a really cool and fun prty.
