IT’S SADE’S PALACE!!
The only casino in the world where the house never wins!
Every patron gets $1,000 in Skylemoney as they walk through the grand entrance. Food and drink are comped of course. After all, it’s a star-studded night. The Palace is the place to be and be seen.
There were Wheels of Fortune, Craps, Poker, Blackjack, Checkers and Chess. Lots of dice games, and of course slot machines. There was Karaoke in the Skylemar Star Lounge, with some remarkable talent. A fortune teller was on hand to predict if this was your lucky night.
George’s Grill served root beer, ice cream and pretzel-rod cigars. Fortunately, three municipal trash men (one named Shep) were there to maintain Sade’s high standards of clean. Gotta keep up that five-star rating, you know.
The crowd roared when Matthew H (Bunk 10) won the Megabucks. He took home over a million with a single ticket purchase.
It was a who’s who celebrity roster this beautiful evening. There were Shark Boy and Lava Girl, The Powerpuff Girls, a bunch of tourists, some hula dancers and a couple of heavyweight boxers. There was Thing 1 and Thing 2, Spiderman, Dorothy and Toto, a cowboy, and Joe Exotica with his tiger, and Steve Harvey along with some Miss America candidates. The cast of Star Wars made an appearance, and check this out…Bruno Mars! We were truly honored that The President, along with his Secret Service, spent the entire evening with us.
Big shout-out to Director Suzie and her amazing costume closet!
After a round of complimentary glow sticks, The Bank was open for business. Well-mannered patrons exchanged wads of cash for a full selection of prizes. There were trinkets and toys, inflatable balls and best of all, fuzzy dice.
Sade, for whom the Palace is named, was smiling down from heaven this evening. She was our founder Lee’s sister (and this writer’s favorite aunt) who lavished love and attention on every boy since the day Skylemar opened in 1948. It is with this special night that we celebrate her and the greatest guys in the whole wide world.
