Library Mardi Gras
BBQ dinner and wine in the large conference room. Then gambling in the hallowed library itself. Blackjack, craps, and roulette, plus Texas Hold 'Em poker kept folks entertained and vying for prizes. Now I blew my chips within an hour. Ray managed to win $20,000 (fake), but wasn't close to prize status. Over $100,000 earned the television, Samsung tablet, and more.
You could purchase extra chips, and also tickets for wine, beer, and soda. All funds went toward the library.
Roars of laughter, alcohol, and gambling in a public library. Hey - it got people in the doors after hours.
Hopefully, they'll be back again to checkout books and read - but at that time.........ssshhh! Use your library voice, and no food or drink allowed.
