Time to Get Some Gambling On

By Bruce Felps

The Forest Hills Association offers up a gaming alternative for residents who hear but cannot heed the call of Vegas.

The association plans its Casino Night and Texas Hold ’Em Tournament for 6-10 p.m., Feb. 26, at the Another Broken Egg location in Casa Linda Plaza. Funds raised from the event will help finance FHA neighborhood’s new street sign toppers with additional money applied toward upcoming events.

Admission to the casino games costs $50 and gets players $3,000 in gaming chips good for blackjack, craps, roulette, and slot machines. Gambling experts also will be on hand to help novices understand the nuances of the games.

When the casino closes and the chips are cashed in, $3,000 in chips earns one raffle ticket good for a chance at items such as a full-year membership to Just Fitness, two tickets and a parking pass to a Texas Rangers game vs. the Toronto Blue Jays, a gift package from Mockingbird Swim & Fitness, and other cool stuff.

Poker players can sit in on the Texas Hold ’Em game for $100 and play for a chance to win a luxury suite at American Airlines Center — capacity: 18, plus VIP parking — for a Dallas Mavericks or Dallas Stars game, a 42-inch flat-screen high-definition TV, or a golf package for four at Dallas Athletic Club.

This, folks, is high stakes gaming at low stakes prices. Get in on the action.

More details and registration can be found at the Forest Hills Association website.
