November 2013

By Bill Previtti

On the Move and in the Groove

SOMEONE’S IN THE KITCHEN WITH MS. LUND The New York Yankees had Babe Ruth. The Boston Red Sox, Ted Williams. The Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan; and the San Francisco’s 49ers, Joe Montana. And Isleta’s Casino and Resort has Lilliand Lund. If they gave out awards for inspirational leadership in the kitchen-to-table Olympics, Lilli and Lund would be on the top tier, getting the gold. It’s one thing to talk about how to set a menu, organize the cooks and kitchen, and put a serving staff together—you can talk all day about the challenge—but until the plan is executed, no matter how you slice it, all the chatter is just bologna. Lund doesn’t suffer those who only talk about the challenges. She serves as a template of action, of execution. When it was decided to take Isleta’s Tiwa restaurant to barbecue-ville, she was at the center of action and decision making. Her actions serve as a testimony to her lifetime, yes lifetime, of being part of the hospitality industry. Lund has three responsibilities at Isleta. She oversees the resort hotel’s room service operation; she manages the property’s coffee and ice cream bar, The Chill; and she is the tireless work-

ing manager of the Tiwa, the mainstream restaurant that Lund has recently revamped into a mouthwatering barbecue pit stop. It wasn’t in reality a sea change. Lund saved several entrees from the old Tiwa menu, while introducing Tiwa’s new “three menu” offerings. For some, it may be hard to visualize barbecue items in a breakfast setting, but don’t kid yourself. Tangy smoked-elk sausage hugging a pair of over-easy eggs, crisp hash browns, and freshly baked breakfast rolls dripping in butter. How hard is that to imagine? The killer here just might be inside Tiwa’s two wee bottles of barbecue sauce accompanying the serving. One is bitingly sweet, the other carries the wallop of a hammer sheathed in velvet. Experiment and mix the two—do it your way, you can’t go wrong; it’s impossible to step off the path of good dining inside The Tiwa. The sauce twins show up at every serving—breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Tiwa’s lunch and dinner menus are peppered with barbecue platters like applewood-smoked pulled pork, smoked turkey breast, St. Louis-style slowsmoked pork ribs, and beef tri-tip, applewood-smoked

and sliced to order. Then there is the ubiquitous Tiwa elk sausage, seasoned with jalapeños and cheddar. Tiwa is a team effort so lurking in a corner of the kitchen is a pastry chef, along with bona fide bakers. And everyone is determined to make as many of the items from scratch as possible. Other than the fresh fruit and vegetables and salad fixings, Lund’s team does prepare it all in house. The lady emphasizes teamwork. Her employee turnover rate is ridiculously low. Lund’s work ethic is borderline maddening—she’s always “there,” whether at the room service call center, at Tiwa, or across the promenade between the casino and hotel at The Chill. When does she sleep? Are there two or three of her? Who knows? Who cares? I don’t. All I know is, when

I see her I know I’m going to get a great meal or a marvelous latte with a melt-inyour mouth scone. Man, it doesn’t get any better than that.

Featuring state-of-the-art lighting and sound, it’s become central New Mexico’s hotspot for premier live entertainment, everything from the best local and regional bands to national and internationally acclaimed musical and comedy acts. Check out these exciting acts on tap for November: The Day the Music Died Featuring Richie Valens, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Jackie Wilson Tribute Artists Two shows on Saturday, November 2: 3pm and 7pm With an unparalleled tribute to Ritchie Valens, Sting Ray Anthony is endorsed by the Valens estate, and has performed at Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theater, Legends In Concert, Rock and Roll Heaven, and other great venues. Kenny James has excited crowds across the country for years with his tribute to Buddy Holly. Chubby Checker called him a natural, and Buddy Knox told people that Kenny James was the closest thing to his friend Buddy Holly he had ever met. Darrell Croy’s tribute to Jerry Lee Lewis not only includes the legendary rock and roller’s sound and look but also his distinctive

piano-playing technique. A perennial favorite in Branson, Missouri, and awarded its best tribute artist, Croy also earned kudos from Cashbox magazine writer Merlyn Brown, who wrote: “The Ultimate Jerry Lee experience . . . the best Lewis Tribute to be found anywhere.” Bobby Brooks Wilson has received high critical acclaim for his recreation of the legendary Jackie Wilson, who also happens to be Bobby’s father. Bobby perfectly recreates his father’s mannerisms and vocal range, and he has performed his loving tribute at the famed Las Vegas-based Legends in Concert tribute shows.

Gambling Goodies From the Grave? Dear Mark: A friend of mine recently passed away. He had a large amount of casino comps. Do they go into his estate and to his heirs? Bob M.

BIG TRUCKIN CASH Play at Sky City Casino for your chance to win big in 2013 during the Big Truckin Cash giveaways. All CDL cardholders have one opportunity every Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from now through the end of December 2013 to win $500 if present or $250 if not present. T-SHIRT GIVEAWAY As an added bonus for winners, receive a Sky City Casino T-shirt when you hit a taxable jackpot.

In its strictest form, Bob, a “will” is limited to real property while a “testament” applies to the disposition of personal property. So is the distribution of your friend’s personal property in the form of casino comps to a beneficiary legitimate? Most likely, not.  The whole idea behind comps, Bob, is to get you into the casino to gamble. You are the gambler they are targeting, not Aunt Gertie. If the departed acquired room, food, and beverage comps, show tickets, and rounds of golf to induce continued play, kinfolk can’t surreptitiously use the deceased’s freebies. Somewhere in itsy bitsy fine print on just about every club card brochure, the wording along the lines of non-transferrable exists. Which means that members may not distribute, lend, or in any way allow another person to use their card. These revocable perks-for-play, Bob, are a privilege granted by such-and-such casino specifically in exchange for that player’s past and future action. Most casinos are going to want to see a photo identification of the person trying to redeem comps as well, and it had better match with the individual whose name is on that account. A copy of an obituary won’t cut it.

Blackjack the Smart Way Learn Blackjack from the Pro!

Richard Harvey, Blackjack Strategist Order his 2 books: Blackjack The Smart Way and Cutting Edge Blackjack Order his books at www.Blackjacktoday.com Email your questions to: RichardHarvey@Blackjackthesmartway.com Surrender is a blackjack option found at a minority of casinos—including some in New Mexico. It is a player’s most powerful option, so you should become aware of how best to use it. For a thorough discussion of its state-of-the-art uses, see my book, Cutting Edge Blackjack, but in a nutshell, the surrender option is similar to folding in poker—only you do it after you receive your first two cards and you get to keep half your bet. If it’s mentioned at all in the Old School blackjack books, they only give you six oc-

casions when they say you should always surrender. Here are several: when you have hard point totals of 16 vs. the dealer’s 9; 15 and 16 vs. the dealer’s 10; and 14, 15, or

16 vs. the dealer’s ace. (P.S. Always is a word you should never use in blackjack.) With state-of-the-art blackjack strategies such as mine, you want to get out of los-

ing hands with a minimum of pain. That’s where surrender is so handy. But you have to be able to identify heavily losing situations. And you have to take into account the size of your bet, which Old Schoolers never did because they did not conduct research into this— they assumed you would flat bet every round! Your likely losses are monetary, not theoretical. They are equivalent to your odds of losing times the size of your bet, relative to your average bet. An Old Schooler sees no difference between $5 vs. $500 on a losing hand. But you would. Which is more painful to lose? Which would

take much more time to make up than the other? Old School blackjack doesn’t understand that reality—your reality. Okay, let’s look at this card situation. How would you play the last two hands, the third baseman’s and the hand to his/her right? In this case, a smart player would surrender both. State-of-the-art card analysis reveals that the dealer is most likely to have an 8, 9, or 10 in the hole and achieve an immediate score of 18 to 20 points. Why? These cards are either underrepresented on the table or unrepresented. Proof my assertion is right? My Blackjack Probability Calculator shows that 78 percent of the un-dealt cards are 8s through 10s or aces. So your 14-point hand is a likely big loser, with a nearly 70 percent likelihood of busting. As is your 17-point hand, with 56 percent overall losses vs. the dealer’s likely result. Now factor in your bet— and if it’s much more than your normal bet, then OMG, especially surrender!

Zombie Craze at Atlantic City Boardwalk

Impelled by the popular TV show The Walking Dead and, of course, Halloween, Zombies took over the Boardwalk at Bally’s Atlantic City on Saturday, October 19. Walk on the Boardwalk raised funds for the

Humane Society of Atlantic County, wrote Richard Degener in an article for the Press of Atlantic City website. The event drew hundreds made up to look like flesh-eating humans.

Zombies took over the Boardwalk at Bally’s on October 21 to benefit rescued pets.

“I just read Zombie Survival Guide. It could happen,” says teen Jen Hoopes in Degener’s article. Participants received discounts at 32 businesses around town as they walked— arms outstretched, of course— the boards from Bally’s to the Hard Rock Cafe at the Trump Taj Mahal casino. Some won prizes in categories including best twins, best tattoo, best group, best baby, and, naturally, best zombie. The best zombie even won a part in an upcoming movie, Zombie Death Camp, which Walking Dead Films plans to shoot in Wayne, New Jersey, in January 2014. “I think it’s fantastic. Everything we get is going to homeless cats and dogs to pay for their medical expenses,” Society manager Shannon

Landon Anthony Matthews, 9, of Northfield, walks through the smoke machines set up for the first Zombie Walk on October 19 on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.

Casino Expansions Likely in Japan While Russia’s Growth Contracts While pro-casino groups in Japan are submitting promotional bills to legalize gambling within two years, Russia has implemented a new law that will reduce the number of casinos in their country. Despite being the world’s third largest economy, Japan has experienced decades of stagnant economic growth. No longer content to remain a bystander in Asia’s current gaming boom, Japan is reevaluating its attitude toward casino gambling in an effort to turn their economic tide. China has led Asia’s impressive economic development and casino growth, particularly in Macau and Singapore. Japan is now hoping to get on board the gaming bandwagon well in advance of the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. The only type of casino game currently permitted in Japan is a slot machine known as Pachinko. However, with the addition of casino gambling in Japan, experts estimate the country’s gambling revenue would exceed $10 billion each year, making its market second only to Macau in China ($38 billion), and eventually ahead of Las Vegas ($6.2 billion) and Singapore ($5.9 billion).

The only type of casino game currently allowed in Japan is a slot machine called Pachinko, shown above.

In the meantime, Russia has closed thousands of casinos and gambling houses to comply with a new law proposed by Vladimir Putin. The law is intended to not only rein in the growing Russian appetite for gambling but also bring prosperity to four impoverished regions of Russia. Casinos and other businesses are being encouraged to relocate to these regions in need of development, including one close to the North Korean border. The new legislation is expected to negatively impact Moscow and St Petersburg, which have over 500 casinos and gambling establishments. Russia has closed thousands of casinos and gambling houses.

GEORGE CLINTON and PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC Saturday, November 16 at 7pm

When George Clinton, one of the foremost innovators of funk music, plays at Sky Ute Casino on November 16, music lovers will be in for a treat. A great musician for decades, Clinton is the mastermind behind a unique version of funk music called “Pfunk,” which blends elements of jazz, rock, pop, classical, and even gospel. Clinton’s Parliament Funkadelic was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, and he is a GRAMMY®, Dove (gospel), and MTV music video winner. BMI, the NAACP Image

Awards, and Motown Alumni Association have all recognized Clinton for his lifetime achievement in music. Funk as a musical style is deeply rooted in the musical traditions of New Orleans and the Delta Blues. Following the lead—and commercial success—of James Brown and Sly Stone, Clinton took funk to new heights. Come enjoy George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic at Sky Ute Casino Resort. For more information visit skyutecasino.com.

November 2013

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 19) The new moon solar eclipse on the third changes your concept of money, and you’re handling it for the better. A project you wanted to launch may go more smoothly next month. Have patience. Now that your vision is clear, you need to find the right professionals to accomplish it.

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 22) The new moon rays help you escape an intense workload. The stellar alignment in your house of entertainment and creativity helps you get out of your shell and start socializing again. This is a favorable period for pursuing a hobby and examining financial investments.

TAURUS (APRIL 20 - MAY 20) Love could walk in the door when you least expect it, due to a fantastic cosmic line-up in your relationship zone. Your personal and business associations are highlighted all month. You will form strong, long lasting connections that will help you advance.

LEO (JULY 23 - AUG 22) Get your bags packed—it’s the opportune time to move or redecorate your home. As the planets shift so do your plans, and you consider relocating, purchasing property, or renting a place for a vacation spot. You trade in your party clothes for staying close to home.

GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 21) The planet Mercury continues to journey through your sixth house of work and health. Its retrograde motion will activate frustration and problems that need to be dealt with on the career front. Pay attention to health and revisit your dietary and nutritional habits.

VIRGO (AUG 23 - SEPT 22) The planet Mercury goes into direct motion on the tenth, bringing clarity back to your daily routine. It’s important that you make sure all necessary repairs and paperwork is in order. The new moon inclines you toward travel, new ideas, and communication.

LIBRA (SEPT 23 - OCT 23) Your self esteem gets a major overhaul at this time. It’s time to put yourself first and get your confidence back regarding money, love, and career. The Scorpio planets keep you thinking about new ways to improve your cash flow. Revamp your self-image. SCORPIO (OCT 24 - NOV 21) Follow through on all commitments this month. Utilize this cycle of powerful Scorpio energy to turn your life around. The focus in on gaining a positive edge on all areas of your life. Expect a romantic interest to lend support or form a professional partnership. SAGITTARIUS (NOV 22 - DEC 21) The rays of Venus make this an exciting and profitable period in your career. However, avoid signing contracts while Mercury is retrograde. You will find financial opportunities coming from all directions. This is an intuitive cycle that puts your focus on the future.

CAPRICORN (DEC 22 - JAN 19) Be cautious of all monetary transactions, including lending or borrowing, until the end of November, or it may end up to be an emotional experience. You will draw closer to long-term goals as the solar eclipse links you to new plans and partners. Avoid strenuous exercise. AQUARIUS (JAN 20 - FEB 19) You may be in a better career, but you need all your concentration and organizational ability to get through it. Embrace all educational opportunities on the job to excel. Have patience with co-workers. Don’t let your personal feelings interfere with performance. PISCES (FEB 20 - MARCH 20) The illusions of the planet Neptune in your sign may be causing some confusion in your ability to see situations clearly now. Weigh all options and stay grounded, especially when it comes to embarking on any major expenditures. Contemplate all future plans.
