Julius Does Atlantic City

That's right kids, in the never-ending quest for cocktails and entertainment, Julius headed down to AC to see what trouble was there to be found.
He did gamble, although unfortunately the nice security guard at the casino would not allow him to take a picture with his favorite slot machine.

Check out all those pies! God bless casino buffet dining!

"I have no idea what this guy has to do with gambling and cute cocktail waitresses in skimpy outfits, but maybe i'll understand after a few more free drinks." - Julius

The perfect rest spot after hours in the casino. We stumbled onto Nikki Beach on the boardwalk, took a nap on one of the hundreds of couches, grooved out to the DJ spinning techno and house, and of course, had another drink.

The best part of Nikki Beach - the smokin hot girls that work there, of course!

It was a great day down in AC - can't wait to get back!

a public art project by Chang-Jin Lee

Created by Korean born artist Chang-Jin Lee over the past 2 years, Homeland Security Garden investigates the complex issues of safety, security and personal freedom. ?Safety kits,? consisting of personal objects donated by participants and created by the artist in Plexiglas boxes, are displayed on Astroturf covered pedestals arranged to evoke a 19th century horticultural maze or garden. During informal workshops, the artist asks participants to gather items they consider essential to survive a crisis. ?Choosing personal items for a safety kit forces you to question, on a deep level, what you consider most valuable,? said Ms. Lee on a recent afternoon. ?What people need or consider most important varies by ethnic, social and economic background. These differences are highlighted and celebrated, in a playful way, in this project.?
