Get Ready To Host Poker Night With The Guys In Style
|Sun Palace Casino||3000$||Visit||Review|
You've got a group of friends who are all eager to set aside one night per week to play poker and generally have a good time, all you need to get ready is... everything. Where are you going to play? What supplies do you need? Sit right down on that folding chair and get yourself ready for your new weekly tradition.
Cards are a great starting point. Having a few decks on hand is always handy in case there's any damaged or some get lost in the shuffle. From there you'll need to have a set of chips for players to ante up with. Throwing in bills and coins into the pot is fun but nothing beats a little more of the real casino feel. Both of these items are available at pretty much any big box retail store or game shop.
Are you going to sit on the floor or around a coffee table? Of course not! While the kitchen table can be suitable enough, there's a certain draw to having the green, or red if you're fancy, felt top with the markings for real poker play already there when you sit down. These can be a little harder to track down but are readily available if you're willing to look.
Now you're ready to go! So long as you're willing to listen to everyone complain about how hungry they are. After all, a hard night of poker with the guys can take it's toll on the human body. You'd better make sure to stock up on lighter, easy to prepare/restock snacks like chips or pretzels. Finger foods like wings, mozzarella sticks, or even pizza are always great options so long as everyone agrees to wipe their hands before handling your cards or touching the new table.
Now that everyone is set, something to wash it down is the last thing on the list. Keep a hefty supply of ice on hand if you're going to be keeping beer and other alcoholic drinks on hand. Don't forget to also have the appropriate mixers, such as soda for rye and coke and orange juice for screwdrivers, for example. As a responsible host, have water and other beverages for the designated driver(s) so that your friends make it home safely and can come for next week's games.
