City Slickers

City Slickers Casino Night - 15 May 2014

Viva Las Leicester!

The City Slickers committee took a roll of the dice this year by arranging a casino night, which was held at the Grosvenor Casino near the Highcross centre.

Whilst the venue might not quite have had the same bright lights as Vegas, the night was very well received. Guests were treated to a drink on arrival, proceeded to forge and strengthen business relationships over a dinner choice of Curry, Fish and Chips, or Falafel Burger.

With stomachs full and expectations high, the guests descended on the cash desk to receive their complimentary £5 chip and pick their game: blackjack or roulette. Some had lady luck on their side, such as the person who put her £5 on 12 and left the Casino a modest £175 better off than when she started (unlike the writer of this piece whose fiver disappeared in ten seconds, hitting a 22-bust on blackjack).

Some left with dashed hopes and dreams, and slightly lighter pockets, and some left with a spring in their step and a wedge in their wallet, but the consensus was clear: City Slickers had once again delivered an excellent evening of entertainment and networking.
