For those looking for casino entertainment, Barton’s Club 93 is offering a special promotion for today. Any players that earn 50 points on their slot cards throughout the day will earn an additional $25 of play.

Around town there isn’t much else going on. The rec center is closed in observance of the holiday. A few people around town indicated they would be having guests over for barbecues.

A stroll around town shows there are a number of visitors stopping by to check out the casinos. Although none of them are offering any special entertainment for the day, they do appear to be drawing respectable crowds for a Monday.
