Our trip to France starts in 25 days. Watch this space for daily info and photos once we get there. For now, a few practice posts. The most recent post appears at gocek.org.
So yeah, I had this idea that I would wear a tux into Salle Médecin, the room at the Grand Casino in Monte Carlo where Pierce Brosnan (as James Bond) plays baccarat in "Goldeneye". Well, it turns out, although there is a real-life dress code in the evening, tuxedos are not a thing.
There is some talk in the forums that dressing well attracts better service and especially may help when the staff is controlling access to crowded areas. But, you don't want to go overboard. We're just hoping Monte Carlo isn't as casual as Vegas, where Americans dress like they just got out of the all-you-can-eat buffet.
