Holy Bleep

Has Foxwoods become a dangerous place? I’m supposed to go with my wife Thursday...


It’s incredibly rare and I go like once a month. Also I’m sure there was some sort of argument beforehand. I’m sure if you and your wife are keeping to yourself or conversing with local patrons you’ll be fine. I’m actually going this Saturday and staying overnight.

Best of luck if your gambling!
