Parx does have Bartop VP with drink comps...I live just a couple miles from there but don't actually care for the place much. Harrahs Philadelphia (Chester) is much much better imo if you want to avoid AC....but I do still make the trip to AC for the full mini vacation experience personally.

Don't like the PA casino's at all, there's no other option if you're not doing well.

Another Vote for Atlantic City, Many more options for both gambling action, as well as food & restaurant choices and of course the Boardwalk!

anth- I can't promise that you'll love Parx (some do and some don't). But it must save you close to 1 hr 15 min each way of your trip.

If Parx doesn't work for you Chester (as Jim Mentioned) is about 30 min south on 95.

Let us know how it goes.

Going to try out Parx. They have the PA derby there saturday too...so great horse racing and the fact that they have a VP bar that comps drinks during play with the college football games sounds great.

If you are going this Saturday for the PA derby, keep in mind they have two buildings, the horse racing action/betting windows are in the "Parx ~ East" building! Enjoy the Race!
