A bit more of NICE
NICE has a strong casino presence. One year, I was there for my birthday and our friends decided that I needed to play the slot machines for a birthday celebration. I did, all of 20 euro worth. It was fun, even though I didn't win a centime. This year, we didn't go to a casino, but enjoyed seeing the lights. Here is a view of one casino, and two images of the famous Negresco hotel. It's a beauty. The door man wears an old timey costume and the lobby is very plush with velvet seating, and crystal chandeliers. One night we had dinner at a restaurant called Restaurant d'Engleterre, which did not serve English food contrary to it's name. We had a nice French meal, which ended with fresh pineapple for dessert.
