The GAMBLE you can’t lose

It’s Thursday night in Manhattan and you are bored with the same ole Thursday night hangout.  You want to do something different something exciting. Well I have the solution for you.  Club Macanudo (“Club Mac”) on Thursday!  Many of you know that not only am I humidor holder, but Club Mac is one of my top 10 Restaurants in New York City.  I could talk about the wonderful service, the great food, the booze, and of course the ability to smoke a cigar and not be harassed, but I am going to save that for a future post.  Today we are going to talk about Thursday’s at Club Mac where there is a little extra treat.  Every Thursday Club Mac hosts “21 For Fun” with celebrity dealer Tony Busse.  I know you are all saying Dennis come on what could be fun about playing black jack with no money at stake.  I get it I wasn’t a believer either at first, but I am now a convert.  I will not make a claim that playing Black Jack at Club Mac is as good as sitting at the Golden Gate in Vegas, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun.

I have gambled many times for charity or just for fun and I agree it’s boring.  There is no action.  However 21 for Fun is different for three reasons:

  1. You are at Club Mac!  You are drinking and smoking your favorite cigar and nobody is complaining.  When was the last time you went into a casino and didn’t get the looks or comments?
  2. Since there is only one table and the room is smoky you get the feeling that you are in an old speakeasy which is kind of cool.
  3. But the real reason it’s different is Tony, MY DEALER.  From the moment you walk up to the table Tony greets you with a smile.  As a Black Jack Dealer, Tony is fast and accurate.  He gives the players nick names for the players and creates fun bonus rounds.  Tony’s table is the most interactive Black Jack table I have ever been at.  The Reason being Tony.

Still not convinced it’s a lot of fun?  Every Thursday, the player that cashes in the most chips at the end of the night get his/her name entered into a raffle to win a 3 day all inclusive trip to Panama.  A winner is picked every month.  So, if you should be lucky enough you have a 25% or 20% (depends how many Thursday’s) chance to win a free trip, not bad for a no –risk game.

STILL not convinced?  If you don’t know how to play Black Jack, it’s a great place to learn.  If you do know how to play you can do all the stupid things you would never do if you were playing for money.  Go ahead split the 10x, double down on 12 or 8, who cares YOU CAN’T LOSE! I lost a lot at the black jack table in Atlantic City and Las Vegas in 2013, but at Tony’s table I didn’t lose a dime and still had a great time.

Well if you are still not convinced then prove me wrong!  Go to The Club on Thursday and meet Tony. play black jack with him and if you did not enjoy yourself and have fun, then write a comment on the Blog and I will post it.  I will post both good and bad comments.  Because Thursday night at The Club is a GAMBLE YOU CANNOT LOSE!

Thanks Tony you are the Best.   You can reach Tony at or at 877-241-3574.

The Oscars – Review

I truly enjoyed another awards show season.  Sundday was no exception, I thought it was a great day.  Let’s hear it for June Squibb 85 years old God Bless her.  What is up with Liza Minnelli & Kim Novak? They should not make  public appearances anymore.   The only thing worse than Liza was the way Kelly and Ross reacted to her when she showed up.  Here are some of my Highlights and Lowlights:


  • In Memoriam – it is always my favorite part of the show and Bette Midler was fantastic
  • Jim Carrey – was hilarious
  • The Diamonds – thought the jewelry was great
  • Jared Leto – Acceptance speech, one of the best I ever heard
  •  ABC Red Carpet Coverage – Tyson Beckford a male stylist who seems normal.


  • Ellen – while some stuff was funny overall I don’t find her funny and if she wants to dress and be a man so bad she should just become one.
  • Pink – Judy Garland is turning over in her grave and I think if Liza was well she would of went up on stage and smacked her
  • Kelly & Ross – they are idiots I hate them both
  • Angelina Jolie – Can we all just admit she is an ugly She-devil and cast a spell on Brad Pitt because Jenifer Aniston on her worst day looks better than her on her best
  • U2 & Bona – Lose the shades you Putz.  Can someone just shoot him please

Best Dressed Females:

  1. Kate Hudson – I never expected this to be my number 1, but she looked amazing
  2. Jennifer Lawrence – Shocking she was wearing Dior.  She is a star who doesn’t take herself to seriously, did you see the way she laughed when she fell getting out of the limo
  3. Charlize Theron – still looks great
  4. Jennifer Garner – I love the 20s look
  5. Naomi Watts – Another big surprise for me

Best Dressed Men:

  1. Kevin Spacey – Love the Blue – Two years ago everyone laughed that I said blue was an awesome tux, now everyone is wearing them
  2. Ryan Seacrest –  The guy was put together, but he should have had a black pocket square
  3. Leo – He combs his hair and doesn’t wear a skinny tux
  4. Bradley Cooper – Nice Tux, but he needs to comb his hair
  5. Brad Pitt – He took a shower for the event and put on a nice tux

Okay now for the fun:

Worst Women:

  1. Ellen – she dresses like a man
  2. Sally Hawkins – WTF she stole the curtains from my house
  3. Glen Close – who died
  4. Julia Roberts – I think she forgot she is a movie star
  5. Margot Robbie – She was so hot at the Golden Globes, the hair makeup and dress just very disappointing

Worst Men:

  1. Pharrell Williams – The Guy should have been thrown out.
  2. Michael Strahan – Just God Awful
  3. Will Smith – IT’S THE OSCARS WEAR A TIE
  4. Zac Efron – if his pants were any shorter Pharrell would of worn them
  5. Michael B Jordan – The shoes and what was that on your collar
