01:36 MCW: Yeah, there’s gonna be a lot going on for Caitlin. We got a lot of stuff planned in the suite and outside the suite.
01:42 AG: All right, so it’s funny because I just had Vinny’s bachelor party.
01:45 MCW: I know, earlier this year.
01:46 AG: And it was a lot of fun. It was a blast. And we did our cigars, steaks…
01:53 MCW: We’re not gonna do that.
01:54 AG: We did poker, we did the clubs. We were actually at a mall.
02:00 MCW: Oh, you did Boogie Nights. Which we’ll be there at some point.
02:04 AG: We did Kiss Kiss too.
02:05 MCW: We’ll be there as well.
02:06 AG: Will you go all Kiss Kiss?
02:09 MCW: Did you? Did you guys Kiss Kiss?
02:11 AG: No. We did not. We did not do that. But don’t girls do that at the bachelorette party?
02:15 MCW: Sure. Yeah of course, especially at bachelorette parties. Yeah, tickle fights, all that stuff.
02:18 AG: Does that happen at the bachelorette party, all 12 of you guys?
02:19 MCW: Yeah, that’s written in the agenda. Saturday, noon.
02:23 AG: Are you guys all whacking at one room?
02:26 MCW: Oh, we have a suite.
02:27 AG: There’s 12 girls in the same suite?
02:28 MCW: Yeah. [laughter] No we’re adults, we have a couple rooms, conjoined rooms.
02:33 AG: Take me into the bachelorette kind of mindset. ‘Cause guys…
02:37 MCW: There’s a lot of vodka, there’s a lot of clubs, there’s not a lot of eating. Although we will make a pit stop at the Palm.
02:45 AG: Wait a second. So wait a second, so what we do is it’s steaks, cigars, you know, it’s guy stuff. But you guys, what do you guys do? What, do you dance?
02:58 MCW: We dance, but first we get ready, you gotta buy outfits down here.
03:00 AG: And then you dance again… You’re buying the outfits at the corner?
03:02 MCW: You gotta buy an outfit. Gotta go to get all did. Like get your makeup did.
03:08 AG: You gotta get all did? What does that mean?
03:09 MCW: Go to the spa, gotta relax.
03:12 AG: But what does ‘get all did’ mean?
03:14 MCW: Buy new makeup, maybe show you how to put the makeup on. Very girly.
03:18 AG: So you know they have the new Luxe Salon?
03:20 MCW: Correct.
03:21 AG: You know about that?
03:22 MCW: Yes, we can get a facial there…

03:30 AG: So makeup application is ‘get did’?
03:34 MCW: Yeah, you get did. Yeah, you get did up.
03:36 AG: I thought get did was something else, what do I know?
03:40 MCW: No, no. It’s getting eyeliner. Some blush, maybe a little rouge. We call it rouge.
03:46 AG: So you can get waxed? You’re gonna get waxed?
03:48 MCW: We’re gonna bring you to get waxed. You’re our pet project.
03:51 AG: It’s a full service hair salon, by the way. So you’re hooked up.
03:55 MCW: Well we made appointments online.
03:57 AG: You already did? You all did. Well now what do you do? You go in together, you go in staggered?
04:01 MCW: We all go together.
04:03 AG: Are you drinking champagne?
04:04 MCW: Come on, of course.
04:05 AG: Beforehand.
04:06 MCW: During, after.
04:08 AG: By the way, if you need to call and make an appointment at Luxe Salon girls, call 609-345-1511 or if you’re in the room, you go to extension 5444 and you could schedule appointments. You did it online? Tropicana.net?

04:31 AG: You are a planner? Okay.
04:32 MCW: Yeah, there’s 12 of us, I wanna make sure I get us all in.

04:40 AG: Like what are you getting?
04:42 MCW: Me? Just some makeup.
04:43 AG: Are you gonna trim your hair?
04:44 MCW: No, no trim. Just get the hair did.
04:46 AG: You’re just getting the hair did? You getting the makeup?
04:48 MCW: Yeah, I get it all done.
04:49 AG: The Luxe Salon, sounds nice. That sounds like… Can I go there, at the Luxe Salon?
04:55 MCW: Yeah, we’re getting you waxed. I made you an appointment. 12 girls, 1 man. One hairy man.
05:00 AG: I’m not that hairy, homes.
05:02 MCW: Well, they’re gonna take care of you there, don’t worry. Don’t be scared.
05:05 AG: I am scared.
05:09 MCW: No, we’re not bringing you shopping. We’re just bringing you to the salon then saying bye.
05:12 AG: Did you make appointments at the Blue Mercury Spa?
05:16 MCW: That’s part of it too.
05:17 AG: See, what you guys do it’s like an all day thing. See, what we like to do is drink in the room, play cards in a casino, drink some more, hang out, BS, smoke cigars, take a 5 minute shower, and go eat.
05:35 MCW: When we wake up, we drink champagne, you go to Blue Mercury, you get a massage, you take a shower, you go to Luxe, get your hair did, you get your makeup did.
05:45 AG: Are you still drinking champagne?
05:46 MCW: Yeah, drink more champagne. Go get changed into the new outfit you bought.
05:51 AG: Wow, did you see this? I’m looking at the Blue Mercury Spa. How about this? A blissful coconut sugar scrub to aromatherapy massage. Well, I want that. Can I get the blissful coconut sugar scrub?
06:06 MCW: Yeah.
06:07 AG: To aromatherapy massage. I would be interested in that.
06:10 MCW: You’d fall right sleep.
06:12 AG: Wow, and they even have a couple’s massage if you choose to bring the groom. But, what about Brad? Is Brad coming down? Where’s Brad?
06:19 MCW: No, Brad’s not coming. Brad’s probably doing cigars somewhere. We don’t need them here at the same time.
06:25 AG: Now look, Tropicana is a big property now. So, you guys could meander…
06:30 MCW: Yeah, but we don’t wanna see them.
06:32 AG: The whole point is not to see each other?
06:34 MCW: Yeah, he’s gonna come down here another weekend.
06:37 AG: Brad. I don’t know if I like the name Brad.
06:43 MCW: He might not like Anthony.
06:45 AG: Who doesn’t like Anthony? Anthony’s a great name. Brad, it’s Brad.
06:51 MCW: Who cares? Brad’s paying for this. I love Brad. Yeah, Brad’s treating us.
06:54 AG: He’s a big-shot. See, I knew Brad was a big-shot, that’s why I’m jealous. He’s probably playing double what I’m playing, or maybe quadruple. He’s a big money guy.
07:05 MCW: Brad’s paying for my makeup at Luxe so, I’m excited.
07:08 AG: Oh, alright. Brad’s a big expender.
07:10 MCW: Yeah, nice guy.
07:10 AG: He’s a big sport, Brad. Good for Brad. I like this blissful coconut sugar scrub. Aromatherapy massage.
07:21 MCW: Yeah, you can come down here and get that anytime, too, not just for the party.
07:25 AG: But now, let me ask you a question, I got a question here. The coconut sugar scrub, what is that?
07:32 MCW: It smells good.
07:33 AG: They scrub you down?
07:35 MCW: Scrub you, yeah.
07:35 AG: They scrub you down with coconut?
07:37 MCW: Yeah.
07:38 AG: Coconut sugar?
07:39 MCW: Yeah, with a rub.
07:40 AG: So, I know what aromatherapy massage is, that sounds awesome.
07:44 MCW: Essential oils.
07:45 AG: But the scrub, the coconut scrub.
07:48 MCW: Yeah, if you’re filthy, like you. It’d do wonders on you.
07:53 AG: I like the scrub.
07:55 MCW: When you’re done gambling, that’s where we’re gonna take you.
07:57 AG: Listen, I’m in my sweats right now and I’m gonna be playing some 90-Ball Bingo soon.
08:02 MCW: I know.
08:04 AG: I don’t have any friends down here, you have 11 girlfriends. And I wanna be as far from those 11 girlfriends, but unless you’re gonna add the tickle fights…
08:12 MCW: I don’t blame you. No, we don’t want any…
08:15 AG: In your underwear. Do you guys do that?
08:17 MCW: No, I just told you what we’re doing. We’ve got a very busy schedule and you’re kind of like…
08:23 AG: I’m in the way? [chuckle]
08:23 MCW: You’re getting in the way. I might pay for you to go get that rub down, Brad might pay.
08:30 AG: Could you put it on Brad’s card?
08:32 MCW: Sure.
08:32 AG: Thank you Brad.
08:38 AG: So, what else is on the agenda? So, afternoon is salon.
08:44 MCW: Yeah, we get beautified.
08:47 AG: How long does it take to get beautified?
08:49 MCW: There’s 12 girls, some of them are ugly, a lot, long time. We got a lot of work to do.
08:57 AG: So, there’s no au naturel taking place here.
09:00 MCW: It’s gonna look good.
09:01 AG: Well, big night out on town.
09:02 MCW: Yeah.
09:02 AG: Is there any naps? Do you nap?
09:05 MCW: Yeah, we’ll fit in a nap ’cause we got the suite, we gotta use the suite.
09:07 AG: But how do you nap when you’re all done up with your hair and make up?
09:11 MCW: You do that before, you fit it in.
09:13 AG: Really?
09:13 MCW: Yeah.
09:14 AG: So, this is what you’re doing today?
09:16 MCW: We’ll get it done, we’re here for two nights.
09:17 AG: Alright. Listen, it sounds incredible, the bachelorette party, 12 girls. If I get all my friends, maybe we’d come meet you guys.
09:29 MCW: No, you go to the IMAX, you go to the theater, you go to the sports bar.
09:33 AG: I like the IMAX theater.
09:35 MCW: Yeah, that’s what you guys can do while we’re getting beautified, you can do that.
09:37 AG: Have you ever seen a movie in the IMAX theater?
09:39 MCW: Yeah.
09:40 AG: They have all the hottest blockbuster features. So, here’s what you don’t know about the Tropicana. All those little amenities that make it a vacation destination. Two, three days, it’s that kind of thing. Alright, you’re getting ready to go out onto town here at the Tropicana with all your girls. Get all the girls hanging.
10:05 MCW: You gotta occupy yourself a couple hours, all night really.
10:09 AG: Really? Oh, you know what I’m gonna do now?
10:12 MCW: There’s no curfew.
10:13 AG: Well, for you guys, what’s that mean? What time are you talking about?
10:16 MCW: You’ll have to wait and see.
10:17 AG: Alright, well. While you do that, I’m playing some bingo, 90-Ball Bingo! And you know what, I’m gonna relax, I’m not even leaving the room, how about that? I’m gonna watch TV and play my 90-Ball Bingo at tropicanacasino.com in my sweats. Yeah, I like sweatpants, you got a problem with that?
10:40 MCW: You could do what you want in your room.
10:41 AG: I like sweats and I wanna sit there in my room and play 90-Ball Bingo.
10:48 MCW: As long as you’re winning money.
10:49 AG: Alright? Well, it’s fun too. Look, it’s about winning for sure, but it’s also about the fun. And 90-Ball Bingo, I may call Tooch up, he lives in New Jersey, he could play at tropicanacasino.com, he’s over 21, although he thinks he’s not.
11:09 MCW: Sounds familiar.
11:12 AG: But he’s over 21 and he lives in New Jersey, so I may tell Tooch to play 90-Ball Bingo with me. In fact, I am. Do you know what the beauty of 90-Ball Bingo is? You get a free game every 30 minutes, to try out. How about that? So, I’m gonna claim my ticket here at the top and the bottom of the hour, so we’re close to being the top of the hour and I’m gonna claim my free ticket and then I’m gonna play for bonus money prizes. How about that, while you get ready to do the town? [laughter] Where are you guys going by the way?
11:49 MCW: Oh, just wait, there’s a lot of places to go.
11:51 AG: Alright. I know we’ve been talking about it but I was trying to nail you down ’cause I don’t know, maybe I might wanna go out later. Is it just girls?
12:00 MCW: Just girls.
12:01 AG: Well here it’s for everyone.
12:02 MCW: You’ll fit in. You’ll fit in.
12:03 AG: Here it’s for everyone, all right? With 90-Ball Bingo, there are three winning combinations. There’s three possible winners each game. And Tooch is there. I’m in fact gonna go with my chat-room friends. All right? Because I’m on my iPad and I’m logged in. I’m on the 90-Ball Bingo page and I’ve got the chat room right here. What’s up peeps?

13:07 AG: Well, I got news for you. It actually feels comforting to have cyber friends. As I sit here, in my sweatpants, about to be alone, I got friends. And I got quality entertainment right here. Because the first player who marks all the numbers on any one line of a ticket wins the first prize of the game. Now the second prize comes for the first player who’s gonna mark all the numbers of any two lines. And finally, the biggest and best prize of them all. It’s for the full house. I am getting the full house.
13:43 MCW: I hope so. You could pay for my drinks.
13:45 AG: Your drinks, I better hit three full houses. A player marks all the 15 numbers of the ticket. That’s gonna be me as I sit here. And Tooch is all… I got Tooch in. Hold on. I’m going to chat with him.

15:45 MCW: You learn a lot online, huh?
15:47 AG: About to just rip it up here at the Tropicana. So let me guess. So just so FYI, because I did my homework. Cuba Libre, Boogie Nights, Kiss Kiss Nightclub, Providence and Anthem all offer VIP booths, bottle service for bachelorette parties. Planet Rose also has a VIP booth for private karaoke with bottle service. Now are you a karaoke… Will you guys do karaoke?
16:19 MCW: We’re going to end up there at night. We need to consume a little bit of alcohol, a little bottle service before we go there. Nobody wants to hear 12 girls screaming.
16:29 AG: Okay, so let’s start off. Let me see. Let’s play Bachelorette Quizo.
16:34 MCW: Oh. All right.
16:35 AG: All right. We’re going to play a game called Bachelorette Quizo. So we’ll start off. So if you guys. I’m trying to figure out where you guys are going to do first. So right now it is 6:30. So it’s time to get a drink first. Right? So you’re going to go… You’re going to lounge it?
16:51 MCW: We are. Before dinner, we decided we need to eat something.
16:54 AG: So I want to give you a chance. I want to give you here, you got to go. You can either go to Tango’s. You can go to 10 North. You can go to Ri Ra. You can go to Wet Willies and get those incredible cocktail drinks.
17:11 MCW: Now full disclosure. We might have already done Wet Willies after the salon.
17:15 AG: Oh you did?
17:16 MCW: We did.
17:19 MCW: We will end up there later.
17:20 AG: Which one did you get? What was the one? The Black-out?

17:26 MCW: Uh-huh. They’ve got how many flavors?
17:28 AG: But you know what the thing about those… You know what’s amazing about that? Is those things they taste like, they might as well be water ice or milkshakes.
17:35 MCW: Oh they’re so good. So fruity. Or the Chocolate Banana one they have.
17:39 AG: And the next thing you know you’re like two sheets to the wind.
17:42 MCW: Good feeling.
17:43 AG: Did you go shopping too? Did you see all these, all these shops that you can go to?
17:46 MCW: Yeah. Of course. We had to get new clothes. We didn’t bring full suitcases down here. That’s the beauty. You don’t need to do that. You can buy everything down here.

18:17 MCW: Chocolate’s good.
18:17 AG: But you guys overrate chocolate.
18:19 MCW: Is that true?
18:20 AG: Chocolate martinis…
18:22 MCW: You must hit it out of the park on Valentine’s Day. Yeah?
18:25 AG: You overrate the chocolate.

19:38 AG: Alright. Well, okay. Would you go casual dining? So, here’s your choices. For the casual dining, you can go to the Broadway Burger. You can go to PF Chang’s. You can go to Chickie’s and Pete’s.
19:57 MCW: Do you know you can get take out from PF Chang’s?
20:00 AG: No, I didn’t know that.
20:00 MCW: I did it before.
20:01 AG: You did?
20:01 MCW: Mm-hmm.
20:02 AG: What’d you get?
20:03 MCW: A whole assortment of things.
20:04 AG: Like, they did take out?
20:06 MCW: Yeah, I did take out. I called from my room. I got it in my room.
20:08 AG: Did you really?
20:09 MCW: Yeah. We might do that tomorrow depending how we feel.
20:11 AG: Oh, you’ll be banged up. I can totally see that.
20:13 MCW: I think we’re starting at… We’re gonna…
20:15 AG: What about Cuba Libre?
20:16 MCW: Well, we’re gonna end up there ’cause you could dance there. That’s a little in-between spot for us.
20:20 AG: Cuba Libre?
20:21 MCW: Yeah.
20:21 AG: Will you do a mojito?
20:23 MCW: Oh, yeah.
20:23 AG: Yeah, yeah. I love the Cuba Libre mojito. I do like that. Alright. So, what about the dining? You’re gonna do the fancy schmancy? The wonderful…
20:30 MCW: We’re gonna fill up on Carmine’s.
20:32 AG: Carmine’s is perfect for the girls.
20:34 MCW: That’s what we decided on. We need some spaghetti. We need something to keep us full, something delicious before we go out.
20:39 AG: So you’re talking about sustenance?
20:41 MCW: Exactly.
20:43 AG: I can see that.
20:44 MCW: Meatballs.
20:45 AG: You know, Carmine’s and Boogie Nights have a package?
20:48 MCW: Tell me more.
20:49 AG: Yeah. It’s the ‘Let’s Boogie Package’. So, you get Carmine’s pre-fixed dinner, you get the Friday night menu, the Saturday night menu and then, you get the Boogie Nights. This is right up your alley. You can pick one of these, a bottle of Tito’s.
21:08 MCW: Sign me up.
21:09 AG: Absolut Stoli, in all the Stoli flavors. Where are you going?
21:13 MCW: I’d do Tito’s.
21:14 AG: Tito’s?
21:14 MCW: Love a Tito drink.
21:15 AG: You can also pick one of these, a bottle of Fireball, Bacardi or Captain Morgan. You get two buckets of domestic beers. Do you like the beers?
21:27 MCW: Wait. We get all that?
21:28 AG: Yeah. Soda and juice mixer for the vodka. You get the VIP booth by the dance floor. This is a great deal.
21:37 MCW: Yeah.
21:38 AG: So you get the… Just think about this for a second. You get Carmine’s and Boogie Nights. So, Friday night, it’s just $123.60 per person. That includes tax and gratuity.
21:53 MCW: You can’t beat that.
21:54 AG: Saturday night.
21:55 MCW: I’m gonna get fed and I’m gonna get drunk.
21:57 AG: You’re gonna get drunked up, $151.58 per person on Saturday night. That also includes tax and gratuity.
22:06 MCW: You can’t beat that.
22:07 AG: Well, that’s a main maneuver.
22:08 MCW: You can’t beat that.
22:10 AG: You should do that. By the way, what did you get at Francesca’s? I think I know the person there.
22:20 MCW: They got jewelry. You get everything there.
22:22 AG: Oh, really?
22:23 MCW: I got a bathing suit there one time.
22:24 AG: You did?
22:24 MCW: Mm-hmm.
22:25 AG: Get out.
22:25 MCW: They have everything.
22:27 AG: That’s cool. Alright, so, you’re gonna do Carmine’s. What’s your pasta of choice?
22:33 MCW: I don’t know what I’m gonna go tonight. Maybe, the linguine?
22:35 AG: A little linguine action?
22:36 MCW: Or fettuccine? I need something rich.
22:38 AG: You want seafood?
22:38 MCW: Yeah. I love seafood.
22:40 AG: With shrimp? You’d do a little shrimp?
22:42 MCW: Shrimp and pasta.
22:43 AG: I make good shrimp and pasta. I’m a good chef. Think Carmine’s let me get behind, let me cook?
22:50 MCW: I don’t know. I might have to change my reservation if that’s the case.
22:53 AG: Alright, alright.
22:53 MCW: No, thanks.
22:53 AG: Alright. So then, you go to Carmine’s and then, what? Then, you go back to a lounge or Cuba Libre?
23:00 MCW: No. We might go Tango’s first. We go to 10 North…
23:02 AG: Alright. So, Tango’s…
23:04 MCW: 10 North, Carmine’s, probably Tango’s, right?
23:09 AG: Then, Cuba Libre?
23:10 MCW: Well, depending how late it is.
23:13 AG: What’s the time…
23:14 MCW: Boogie Nights is right behind Tango’s.
23:17 AG: Right, right, right, right. Yeah, that’s right.
23:19 AG: Now, when you go in there, it’s like a whole theme. Will you guys be all themed up?
23:24 MCW: Some of us might. There’s 12 girls, you know.
23:29 AG: Is there a… Like a…
23:30 MCW: There might be a wig, a wig or two.
23:32 AG: Oh, really?
23:33 MCW: Mm-hmm.
23:33 AG: That’s cool. So, what will you guys do? So, will you guys go and you want… Because that’s the kind of music you wanna dance to, like kind of a fun kind of thing.
23:42 MCW: Yeah. You dance all there, all night with the bottle.
23:44 AG: Alright. So, when you see dudes come up to you guys and they say they ask you to dance…
23:50 MCW: You ‘Boogie Night’.
23:51 AG: What do you do?
23:52 MCW: Yeah, you boogie.
23:52 AG: So, you…
23:53 MCW: What do you mean, “What do you do?”
23:54 AG: You accept?
23:54 MCW: We’re a bachelorette party with a bunch of sashes on, a bunch of crowns.
23:58 AG: So, you say… Now, what’s the key to the asking you to dance, is there a key, is there like a line, or are they gonna come up to you and say something?
24:07 MCW: No, they just start dancing.
24:08 AG: They just dance with you?
24:09 MCW: Yeah.
24:10 AG: What if you’re sitting sipping champagne, or vodka, Tito’s vodka, what do you do?
24:14 MCW: Then don’t bother me.
24:16 AG: What if the guy comes up and says “Hey.”
24:18 MCW: I’ll say, “Wait until I’m done with my beverage sir.”
24:22 AG: What if they want to buy you more drinks?
24:23 MCW: I’ll say, “You sit right down sir, I’ll dance wherever you want.”
24:28 AG: Now, what if there’s six of you girls dancing together.
24:32 MCW: Okay.
24:34 AG: Then you see these dudes come in, there’s a handful of dudes.
24:37 MCW: A bunch of Anthonys?
24:38 AG: Maybe. And they start dancing with you. What do you do? Now what if you don’t like the guy?
24:44 MCW: Then you just walk away, you go back to our table.
24:46 AG: So you just leave the poor guy out there by himself dancing.
24:49 MCW: It ain’t my problem.
24:51 MCW: Alright, we leave, you know…
24:53 AG: You can’t do the pity dance?
24:55 MCW: Yeah, it only lasts so long though.
24:56 AG: Then after a while you give the what? The polite pat pat.
25:00 MCW: Yeah, then if that doesn’t work, alright buddy, gotta go.
25:03 AG: Beat it, we’re with the girls, don’t intrude.
25:06 MCW: Bachelorettes only.
25:07 AG: Now, how’s the bathroom thing work? So when you guys are all… [laughter] When you’re all hanging out, do all 12 of you go to the bathroom at the same time?
25:17 MCW: No, okay we’re not weird. You go in pairs. That’s how it works.
25:21 AG: Is it pairs or packs?
25:23 MCW: It could be either.
25:24 AG: Is it a four pack?
25:25 MCW: That depends, it could be a four pack.
25:27 AG: Do the four pack go to the bathroom?
25:28 MCW: It could be. Yeah, I’m sure at some point tonight.
25:31 AG: Now, what do you do?
25:32 MCW: What do you mean what do we do? What do we do in the bathroom?
25:35 AG: Wait a second, if you’re doing the four pack in the bathroom, after you get done with your business, what are you doing? Because you guys take forever.
25:42 MCW: You gotta do the lipstick.
25:43 AG: Oh, so then you chat.
25:45 MCW: You gotta comb the hair.

29:02 AG: Pretty cool right.
29:02 MCW: Yeah, there’s gotta be a poker player or two in my group.
29:06 AG: No, I’m sure there is. There’s nothing hotter than a female poker player, a hot girl poker player. Guys have fantasies about that stuff.
29:15 MCW: Then guess what, they’re real.
29:16 AG: Well that’s good.
29:17 MCW: It’s not a unicorn.
29:18 AG: I like that a lot. Make sure all you ladies out there you go act crazy like MCW and all her girlfriends throwing their bras around.
