Took the wife to AC this weekend to celebrate our 20th anniversary and decided to check out the new Revel casino while we were in town.

I've followed the construction of this place with the several visits a year we make and it is truly remarkable now that it's mostly finished.

Haven't had the grand opening yet, but they decided to let people in anyway. I think it officially opens May 1st.

Looks like they might be putting a seawall and pool out on the beach :blink:

Lone, was that the storm that took one of the cranes down. I remember that because I met the one main crane operator on that job at a local club down there and by the end of the conversation, he was ready to bring me up to the crows nest. Should have took him up on it - once in a lifetime opportunity that would have been.

Remember too, when Revel executives were killed in the plane crash flying out to Vegas to select the glass for this building?

RIP to the fallen for sure :sad:

BTW, my favorite part of this build was covered long ago...

Different event that took the crane down. That happened in March 2010.

I first heard about the guy getting stuck by lightning from a woman I was dating at the time. Her office overlooked the AC skyline and she had a vivid account of the storm activity. It came up quick and was violent as far as lightning activity. No reason IMO that the job should have not been shut down temporarily while the storm passed through.

Congrats on your 20 Bro... :thumbsup:

That is a nice looking joint, can't wait to go down there and check out the action. I wanted to stop by there when I was down there for Builders convention, but after dinner and a few drinks I hit that BLK JCK table, and next thing I know it was 4am :laughing: Going in a few weeks, I got a free room, I will check it out. Thanks for the pic!
