So my son and I ventured to Wildwood from August 4th to August 7th for our annual Labor Day trip. We usually leave Sunday morning, but this year we decided to stay until Monday morning and try for the Sunday drawings at Gateway 26. My daughter is still concerned about Covid-19 so she stayed home with my wife this year. The weather was great during the entire trip and we had a good time. Here are some pictures and observations.
We ate at 2-Mile Landing to celebrate my birthday and had a great meal with a great view.
I had my final piece of Mack's for the season...and it was great!
They added this new historical plaque at the front of Hunt's Pier. Interesting story.
The block between Maple and Glenwood is completely closed again. Apparently the roof leaked during the last big storm and all the stores needed to close.
Roll-A-Bingo at the location of the old Olympic Casino was finally open and my son and I played a game. My suggestion, just stick with Fascination at Randy's place if you are interested in this type of game. The new machines are not that great and they don't know how to call/conduct the game there. My son and I were the only ones playing and the guy did four corners both games. I mean, who starts with four corners when you're trying to hook new people? Also, they just blare music while you're playing like it's a disco in there. They really don't have a clue on how to run a Fascination parlor...and if they don't figure it out they won't be around long.
The world skee ball tournament was going on Saturday night at Ed's 3...but we didn't stick around to see the winner.
Ed's did have these neat souvenirs made from old boardwalk wood. We got one for our house.
Lime Ricky's World had some neat artwork for sale made with laser engraved boardwalk wood. I wouldn't mind having one of these for the house.
It was packed in Gateway Sunday night for the big drawings. They actually hit capacity and there was a long line of people outside waiting to get in.
My son won a golden ticket from one of the draw poker machines. We got 5 drawing tickets and 200 points for it.
We actually won the 3rd highest drawing...12000 tickets! My son was happy.
This is the family that won the Mustang convertible. The mother was a cancer survivor and thrilled to win the car.
We did well this trip getting golden tickets and Totos....especially at Ed's Funcade.
Although it was a weird season due to Covid-19, we still managed to have fun and we are looking forward to returning to close up the house in October. Until then, it's back to reality.
