00:18 Maureen Crowley Williams: Wow, you’re really excited for Santa Claus!
00:20 AG: I am! I love Santa! I love the holidays. I mean, I know everybody does. I know everybody gets… You know what’s funny? ‘Cause everybody loves the holidays, but when you go overboard, people get annoyed by you. And so, I’m one of those people that people get annoyed by.
00:39 MW: Mm-hmm.
00:40 AG: You could see that?
00:40 MW: Yeah!
00:41 AG: Because you love the holidays, right? It’s like awesome. But I love when the… When everybody’s get their houses are decorated, and the streets are done up, and everybody’s in a festive mood. That mood is real. But I like when people are happy. No?
00:58 MW: Well, everybody does.
01:00 AG: Well, there is a part of it, like there’s a show on, that I was watching. [chuckle] It was the battle of the Christmas decorations. And they do all kinds of crazy things, like they have tunnels of lights, and all these crazy… Like, they do it up. And I don’t know, I just find it all interesting and entertaining.
01:21 MW: I love a decorated house.
01:22 AG: Well, you know what? You know what’s decorated fully? The Trop!
01:26 MW: I know.
01:27 AG: The Trop is decorated! The Trop is like one giant winter wonderland…
01:34 AG: In Atlantic City. We haven’t had any snow yet, but it feels like a winter wonderland.
01:38 MW: Indoors now.
01:39 AG: That’s right. We just saw the tree.
01:42 MW: It’s beautiful.
01:42 AG: Isn’t the tree… When we go in, and we love our time at the Trop, weekly hanging out, you feel fest… Like you’re in a good mood!
01:52 MW: Yeah, you feel festive.
01:53 AG: Right? Everybody’s happy, and it’s nice. It is a beautiful thing, Tropicana, all done up with the lights. This is why I love the Trop, right? So no matter, whatever it is, it’s all about themes. See, that’s what it’s supposed to be. It’s supposed to be a theme. When you go to the Trop, I feel like I’m escaping. And now, when I go, I’m escaping to the North Pole.
02:16 MW: Oh? Yeah. Yeah. All you need is your Santa sack.
02:21 AG: I wanna have a Santa sack. [chuckle] Hey, right now, you could see the Holiday Jubilee show. Have you done that?
02:29 MW: Not yet.
02:30 AG: Oh, well, let’s do…
02:31 MW: It’s all month.
02:31 AG: Here’s what you need to do, right? So we need to do a holiday extravaganza. Alright? Now…

02:42 AG: Like the whole property of Tropicana is done up for the holidays.
02:47 MW: Poinsettias.
02:48 AG: Right? The whole thing. Whatever holiday you observe, it’s the holidays, it’s got it covered. We’re Christmassy. So anything you want, it could be any kinda holiday that’s there, Hanukkah, you name it. It’s all done. And so, the beauty of the Trop is it’s just like this wonderland of holidays. So let’s do this. Let’s just go down, and let’s have a holiday extravaganza. You up for it?
03:19 MW: I’m in. Yeah.
03:19 AG: Alright. We’ll head down, and as always, we gotta start at Tango’s.
03:24 MW: Okay. [laughter]
03:26 AG: Tango’s is our first stop. Because you go to Tango’s, and you have an incredible cocktail, and then you map things out. I’m good… I like spontaneity. I know you’re a map-out person.
03:42 MW: Yeah, but down here, I like to go with the flow.
03:45 AG: You sure?
03:46 MW: Sometimes.
03:47 AG: You’re a [chuckle] go-with-the-flow person?
03:50 MW: Yeah, as long as you feed me.
03:52 AG: I like to just meander. But I’ll meet you halfway. We’ll go to Tango’s, here at Tango’s, and we’ll map out every place we got to hit.
04:04 MW: There’s a lot of them.
04:04 AG: Alright?
04:05 MW: Alright.
04:05 AG: Between now and Christmas and New Year’s. Are you ready to do that?
04:11 MW: Let’s go.

04:21 MW: They do. They do. Jimmy’s usually there to help us.
04:25 AG: Jimmy, the bartender. Next time you go to Tango’s, go see Jimmy, the bartender. And you tell him that Cousin MCW’s…
04:33 MW: No, don’t tell him that, don’t tell him that.
04:34 AG: No?
04:35 MW: No. [chuckle]
04:36 AG: Is that bad?
04:36 MW: Just say, “Hi, Jimmy.”
04:37 AG: That’s it? You don’t wanna say, “MCW sent me”?
04:39 MW: Jimmy might not wanna see us every day.
04:41 AG: No? I think Jimmy loves us.
04:43 MW: Okay.
04:43 AG: I think Jimmy loves us. Alright. So, while we have our cocktails, I’m gonna start off with a little tropicanacasino.com. How about that?

10:18 MW: We’ll see.
10:20 AG: But you could wear the elf outfit.
10:22 MW: You could be an elf as well.
10:24 AG: I’m a little too big for an elf.
10:26 MW: No. Elves come in all sizes.
10:29 MW: Don’t believe what you see. And hear.

10:49 MW: That can mean anything.
10:50 AG: Alright? A little teaser for you.
10:52 MW: That could mean you coming out in an elf outfit.
10:55 AG: That’s not a surprise.
10:56 MW: It could be anything.
10:57 AG: That’s definitely not part of the show, nor do you want it to be part of the show. Tickets, how about this, 25 bucks for adults, just $10 for kids. You could purchase it at the Tropicana box office or through Ticketmaster, the Holiday Jubilee show, and it runs through December 23rd. How great is that? You know we’re talking about how everything is done up?
11:23 MW: Decorated? Yeah.
11:24 AG: Done up.
11:25 MW: Yeah, yeah.
11:25 AG: I said, “Done up.”
11:25 MW: Yeah. Special.

11:38 MW: That’s huge.
11:40 AG: There’s 35-foot… How they treated The Quarter. Isn’t that amazing? It’s already lit. It’s unbelievable. It’s beautiful. You can go see videos of our tree lighting on Facebook, if you wanna see how it went. Santa Claus was there. Atlantic City Mayor, Don Guardian, was there. He’s a nice man, the Mayor. I’ve met the Mayor, you know.
12:05 MW: Nice Mayor.
12:06 AG: I’ve met the Mayor of Atlantic City.
12:08 MW: Look at you. Look at you.
12:10 AG: Ah, you know…
12:10 MW: Well, you’re so fancy…
12:11 AG: That’s how I roll. That’s how I roll. You got wreaths, and trees covered in snow with snowmen, throughout the entire Tropicana property.
12:1 MW: You can get decorating tips down here.
12:22 AG: That’s a good idea.
12:23 MW: I know. For a wreath.

12:48 AG: No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
12:49 MW: It’s a different light show.

13:00 AG: Alright?
13:00 MW: Yeah, finish this drink. Let’s go.
13:01 AG: We gotta be down for that. I love it. Hold on, I’m not finished yet.
13:04 MW: Noon ’til 10:00?
13:06 AG: ‘Cause we have to, before we do that, we gotta do hot chocolates.
13:10 MW: Oh, that’s at the next stop?
13:12 AG: Yes!
13:13 MW: Okay.
13:14 AG: Yes. Now, what you’re thinking about, the holiday cheer outside, and that’s the multimedia light and sound show?
13:20 MW: Right. Right, right.
13:20 AG: Right?
13:21 MW: On the boardwalk.
13:22 AG: Yeah, which is awesome.
13:23 MW: Yeah.
13:23 AG: You can see it in the summertime. It’s great.
13:24 MW: Yeah.
13:25 AG: What we do there is outrageous. What Tropicana does, not us. I wish we did that.
13:30 MW: We just look.
13:32 AG: Alright. So, what do you think about little hot chocolates?
13:34 MW: Yeah.
13:36 AG: You down with the hot chocolate?
13:37 MW: I am. I think we can go to 10 North.
13:39 AG: Alright. Oh, my God. Listen to this. Now, are you a Ghirardelli hot chocolate woman?
13:48 MW: Come on. Who’s not?
13:49 AG: Listen to this. 10 North. We can go there right now.
13:52 MW: I know.

13:58 AG: Well, let’s go then. Let’s go now!
14:00 MW: We are.
14:01 AG: Where’s… Jimmy! Give me the check, Jim! Give me the check.
14:05 MW: We need a chocolate martini now, I guess, right?
14:06 AG: Oh, my God. This is awesome. Listen to this. Listen to this. Let’s go to 10 North. Hazelnut Ghirardelli hot chocolate. You ready?
14:18 MW: Mm-hmm. Tell me more.
14:20 AG: [chuckle] This is awesome.
14:21 MW: Tell me more.
14:22 AG: Made with Nutella, brandy, and one of my favorite liqueurs, Frangelico. I love the nutty Frangelico taste. I’m a little nutty, but it’s awesome. It’s topped with whipped cream, served with a chocolate straw.
14:41 MW: Ooh.
14:41 AG: Alright?
14:42 MW: Yeah!
14:43 AG: That’s not enough. I mean, we gotta… I gotta get this one, too.
14:45 MW: That’s you. That’s what you’re getting. I’m getting this next one.
14:48 AG: Yeah, I do. I love the Frangelico. How about this, though? The salted caramel Ghirardelli hot chocolate, made with Bailey’s salted caramel liqueur. That tastes pretty badass.
15:01 MW: I want that now.
15:02 AG: Topped with more caramel and more sea salt, and served with a chocolate straw.
15:08 MW: Yeah. Yes, please.
15:09 AG: What is it about salt and chocolate?
15:12 MW: They just go together. It’s like the perfect match.
15:17 AG: But why?
15:18 MW: I don’t know. Why ask? I’m not questioning it. I just want it.
15:22 AG: And look. These have alcohol in it. You could go to non-alcoholic. And how about this? See, salted caramel frozen hot chocolate. You ready for this?
15:32 MW: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.
15:32 AG: It’s made with hot chocolate, salted caramel sauce, blended with ice, topped with whipped cream, drizzled caramel sauce, chocolate-covered pretzel pieces on the top.
15:45 MW: That’s a dessert.
15:47 AG: Yeah, but you get… No, here’s something. You’re weird. You do the iced coffee every day.
15:54 MW: Yeah. Yep.
15:56 AG: Now, it could be freezing outside, and you’re rocking the iced coffee.
16:00 MW: I like a frozen treat.
16:03 AG: So this sounds like this is up your alley.
16:05 MW: Yeah, I might put a little something something in that, too. Might ask for something, you know.
16:10 AG: Right. You could, or you can get the non-alcoholic version.
16:13 MW: That’s the beauty of it. You could do either.
16:14 AG: Right. [chuckle]
16:15 MW: I mean, if I’m here, you know, hey.
16:17 AG: So if you wanna… So we could do the whole theme, guys. We’ll go there. Then we gotta go through The Quarter. Right? And then down the escalators to the Palm.
16:30 MW: I mean, we have to hit up all these spots. They each have a signature cocktail.
16:33 AG: Actually, before we go to the Palm, Carmine’s, it’s right on the corner, before you head to the escalators going down?
16:40 MW: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.
16:41 AG: So not only is Carmine’s a blast and have great food, but also, they do the Italian S’mores. Well, I’ve never heard of this.
16:51 MW: No, but I want it.
16:52 AG: Are you ready for this?
16:53 MW: Yeah.
16:53 AG: Italian S’mores at Carmine’s. It takes the traditional hot chocolate, and you get it spiked with a little Stoli vanilla, Tuaca, which is an Italian vanilla liqueur, this masterpiece then topped with a graham cracker chocolate chunks, marshmallows, and whipped cream. Come on, now!
17:20 MW: I want that.
17:21 MW: I’m kinda salivating right now.
17:24 AG: So, it’s traditional hot chocolate, spiked with Stoli vanilla, Tuaca, that’s the Italian vanilla liqueur, and then you got graham cracker chocolate chunks, marshmallows, and whipped cream. Damn. Alright. Once we go… And then we can chase the chill away with a little peppermint patty!
17:45 MW: Yeah.
17:45 AG: At the Palm! You like the peppermint patty?
17:48 MW: I do. I do.
17:49 AG: Me too, I do, too.
17:50 MW: I’ve never had it in a drink form.
17:52 AG: Yeah, so…
17:53 MW: This is exciting.
17:53 AG: The Palm… You know the Palm…
17:56 MW: It’s the best.
17:57 AG: You’re right. It does everything well.
17:58 MW: Yeah.
17:58 AG: So they have the house-made hot chocolate recipe, and then you get a shot of peppermint schnapps to give it a little peppermint patty action.
18:06 MW: Okay. Alright.
18:08 AG: So I’d say, “Nah. We’re not done now.”
18:11 MW: Well, no, but we’ll go up a couple of steps. Burn that off, get to Ri Ra.
18:15 AG: Right! Now we’re gonna go up and up!
18:17 MW: Yep.
18:18 AG: The double, double up!
18:18 MW: Yep.
18:20 AG: And that is the Ri Ra Irish pub, always a crowd favorite. I like the… I always get the potatoes at the Ri Ra.
18:27 MW: Mm-hmm. Very good. Very good.
18:30 AG: The potato soup.
18:31 MW: Potato soup. Watch a game.
18:33 AG: Yeah. Great sandwiches. Also great, just, Irish fare. But look at this. They have their own holiday drinks. Okay? The Chocolate Mist. This is hot chocolate laced with a tot of Irish mist!
18:54 MW: You need the… You don’t even know what that means, but you need it.
18:57 AG: I hear “a tot of Irish mist,” and I’m in.
19:00 MW: And you’re in. Yeah.
19:01 AG: “Topped with our signature whipped heavy cream.” Ah, that sounds outrageous. It’s like a hot tot, right?
19:07 MW: Yeah!
19:08 AG: Right? So “tot.”
19:08 MW: Yeah. Irish version.
19:10 AG: Give me a tot. The Irish know… Listen, the Irish make the hot tot.
19:14 MW: Smart people.
19:14 AG: Yes. Your Irish.
19:16 MW: Mm-hmm.
19:17 AG: The Chocolate Mill. You know the Chocolate Mill?
19:21 MW: I do now. I’m reading. It’s with Bailey’s.
19:25 AG: Are they… You really gotta put this on the list, too. The hot chocolate laced with creamy Bailey’s caramel. Now, do you say “caramel” or “carmel”?
19:34 MW: I’m guilty of saying both. I’ve said “carmel,” I’ve said “caramel.”
19:38 AG: See, I meant caramel, I’d say “caramel.”
19:41 MW: I think I’d say “carmel.”
19:43 AG: I think you’d say “carmel,” too.
19:44 MW: You say “caramel.” You think it sounds fancy.
19:47 AG: What are you saying, I’m fugazi?
19:48 MW: Mm-hmm. Fraud. That’s “fraud,” for people that don’t know what “fugazi” means.
19:54 AG: It’s “caramel.” It’s spelled “caramel.” It’s not spelled “carmel.”
19:56 MW: It is, you’re right. You’re right.
19:58 AG: Carmel’s in California.
20:00 MW: Correct. But yeah, you know, it’s a carmel, too. A carmel candy.
20:05 AG: Do you like this, the Chocolate Mill? Hot chocolate, Bailey’s caramel, topped with our signature whipped heavy cream.
20:12 MW: I’m into that whipped heavy cream.
20:13 AG: Are you?
20:14 MW: Yeah. Put that on anything.
20:15 AG: Alright. And then finally, we gotta end [chuckle] with the Chocolate Orange. Hot chocolate, spiked with orange liqueur, and topped with your whipped heavy cream. Alright? Are you kidding me? ! Man, it’s this libation heaven.
20:36 MW: Covers all the bases.
20:38 AG: Whew. Which one’s your favorite?
20:42 MW: Ooh, I mean, the salted carmel frozen hot chocolate.
20:45 AG: Yeah, that’s what I thought.
20:46 MW: That has to be my favorite so far.
20:46 AG: You also made eyes at the S’more.
20:49 MW: I did, I did.
20:50 AG: The Italian S’more.
20:51 MW: Yeah. I did.
20:53 AG: For me, it’s the tot of Irish Mist.
20:57 MW: You just want a tot.
20:57 AG: I want a tot. [chuckle]
20:58 MW: You just wanna say… You just wanna order a tot.
21:00 AG: Yes. I wanna say, “I want a tot.” Yes.
21:00 MW: Yeah. You’re not gonna order the mist. You’re gonna say, “I want that tot drink.”
21:03 AG: Correct. Or it’s the Frangelico and the Nutella.
21:09 MW: Mm.
21:10 AG: And the brandy.
21:11 MW: Well, luckily, we can visit them all.
21:13 AG: I like a nice brandy. Hold it nice in a snifter. Cold outside. Warm you up, a little brandy. I don’t know what it is, but like my grandmother’d say… The adults would always get the brandy to warm ’em up.
21:28 MW: Mm-hmm. Warms your insides.
21:30 AG: Yeah. And it’s a lot more than that. And getting back to the tropicanacasino.com, shall we? Because, like I’m telling you, I’ll tell you all the great stuff that’s going on.

23:14 AG: When we call it a night, I wanna try to win an iPad Air.
23:18 MW: Or a Fitbit.
23:18 AG: Yeah, the Fitbit, I need the Fitbit, yeah. I gotta do that. I like the amazon.com, too, the gift cards. That’s pretty cool, right?
23:24 MW: Oh, yeah. You have everything.
23:25 AG: Yeah, that’s really cool. Alright. So, while we’re imbibing and everything else, I got a couple of good ideas for you.
23:33 MW: For a holiday party?
23:35 AG: How’d you know?
23:36 MW: Thinking ahead.
23:37 AG: Yeah. So, like, if you wanna party, your company, whatever it is, your business, you wanna do a party, I’m telling you, go to Boogie Nights. That’s the move. You can watch a full cast of characters light up the dance floor, pry the VIP booths in nostalgia, your favorite ’70s and ’80s hits. Boogie Nights is the place to bring your celebration to life, for any corporate holiday party, private event, at an affordable rate. Book it now. I’m telling you, it’s a blast for the holidays. To book your private event, call 888-940-7080.
24:19 MW: Now, we saw a whole group last week.
24:22 AG: Yeah, you remember that?
24:22 MW: They had their holiday party there.
24:24 AG: Oh, my God, it was packed.
24:25 MW: And we saw them go in, we came out, and they were still there. 6:00 AM.
24:29 AG: Oh, it was awesome.
24:30 MW: Yeah.
24:30 AG: It was awesome! And don’t forget, I’m telling you, it’s a great way to do it. Call, again, to book your private event, 888-947-7080. Do it, man. It’s a great place. I’m telling you.
24:46 MW: 940. I think you said 947. How many of those totties have you had?
24:51 AG: 940? 947. Okay, one more time.
24:53 MW: Yeah. Let’s do it again.
24:54 AG: Hold on.
24:54 MW: Alright. Yeah. Put that tottie down. That chocolate straw’s gotta go. You can’t read.
24:58 AG: It’s not a “tottie,” it’s a tot.
25:00 MW: 1-888-940-7080.
25:04 AG: I said that. I said 940…
25:06 MW: We could check the tape.
25:07 AG: 7080.
25:08 MW: Okay.
25:08 AG: Check the tape. Go back to the tape. So my other idea for you is the gift card. Alright? See, give the gift of a getaway. Give the gift of a winter weekend, with the Tropicana gift card! Oh, my God, I’m like… That’s what I’m getting you! Tropicana gift card!
25:28 MW: Yeah. Because I could stay in a hotel, and then spend anything I have extra at the boutique.
25:34 AG: Yes!
25:34 MW: Or the spa.
25:35 AG: Listen to me! The Tropicana gift cards can be redeemed for anything, from the overnight stays, or dining and shopping, entertainment through the property, including The Quarter. Order online. I’m telling you, it’s a great gift! Stocking stuffer, gift, you wanna impress your boss. Right? If we had a boss…
25:56 MW: Yeah, my boss doesn’t deserve this. This is for someone special.
26:00 AG: Yeah, we don’t really have a boss.
26:01 MW: No.
26:02 AG: But if we had a boss…
26:03 MW: If we had a boss, hey, that I liked.
26:05 AG: I’d give him this. [chuckle] tropicana.netgift-cards, or you can call casino services, 800-338-5553.
26:23 MW: You got that one right.
26:24 AG: You sure?
26:25 MW: You wanna read it again?
26:26 AG: No, you read it because I have had another one of these tots.
26:27 MW: 1-800-338-5553.
26:33 AG: Alright, it’s a great idea. Trust me. Whether or not I’ve had too many of these hot chocolates or not. Or these tots.
26:41 MW: Yeah. At least you know these gift cards, they don’t expire.
26:45 AG: Nope. Tropicana gift cards available for purchase at the front desk, too, at the South Tower. I mean, it’s a great idea.
26:53 MW: Great gift.
26:53 AG: Right?
26:54 MW: Yeah! It’s a great gift! You can make a weekend out of it.
26:56 AG: Told you. You doubt me. You doubt me, I’m telling you.
27:02 MW: Not when it comes to Tropicana.
27:03 AG: I mean, I love… You can select any dollar value for a gift card up to 500 bucks. No gaming. But I’m telling you, it’s a great idea. Put it in a little stocking. Or a card, whatever it is, Secret Santa.
27:17 MW: Yeah. Mom, Dad.
27:18 AG: You play Secret Santa?
27:19 MW: Sister. No, I could now.
27:23 AG: Yeah, I’ve never got the Secret Santa.
27:24 MW: Yeah, I never really played.
27:26 AG: Like, you’d guess, everybody’s got… You have somebody in the family, and then I don’t know. Or work, whatever it is.
27:32 MW: And then you can switch. Isn’t there like one Pollyanna, that you could swipe somebody’s gift?
27:34 AG: Right. So you could switch. So if I got the Tropicana gift card…
27:37 MW: I wanna keep it. And I’d be angry…
27:38 AG: You know what I mean? Exactly.
27:39 MW: If somebody takes it, and I get like a sock or something…
27:42 AG: Exactly. I wanna go sing along. Alright?
27:46 MW: Oh.
27:47 AG: I wanna go sing some holiday music.
27:48 MW: I don’t know if anybody wants you to do that.
27:51 AG: Come on.
27:51 MW: Go ahead, give us your best Chipmunk.
28:04 AG: [chuckle] No. Nobody wants to hear me do it here.
28:05 MW: Go ahead, give us a little Rudolph.
28:07 MW: Give us a little Rudolph, just a little bit.
28:08 AG: MCW. No. I’m not doing that. I’m gonna go and sing carol outside the Jubilee people, my friends. Alright?
28:18 MW: Alright.
28:18 AG: Right, we’ll be back for the TropCast for New Year’s Eve. I could see you being a big New Year’s Eve person, all dolled up!
28:28 MW: Gotta book my room.
28:28 AG: I know. Make sure you book your room. But we’ll give you more coming up on our next TropCast. Listen, everybody. Have a wonderful holiday season. Whatever you celebrate. Happy holidays. Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Happy Kwanzaa, whatever it is. Enjoy it. And be safe, and have fun, and we’ll see you at the Tropicana.
