Does anyone have a poker table?

Not like, a kitchen table you play poker on, I mean a full-on green felt poker table? And can we shoot a video wherever it is?

Graham, perhaps you could find a local betting house?

Like, even just an establishment for horse races or something. Such places typically also have card game tables in the building, so that people waiting on the races can also play cards.

Alternatively, any casinos up that way?

In my basement we have a small (30'' by 30'') folding card table with a green felt surface. However the cover is not in the best shape. On the other hand it could be easily transported to where it is needed.

The horse racing thing may be a good tip... There's a horse track near Sidney, I believe.

Isn't there a casino in Langford/Colwood? I thought there was.

I could get you poker chips... but no table.

Not even a horse track, per se, but just one of those hole-in-the-wall horse race betting places. The kind with perhaps a bar, lots of TVs and monitors covering the races remotely, several seedy looking bookies, etc.

Johnny "The Lunchbox" Cagliostri: I'm a patient man, mister Stark. But my patience has worn thin. You told me I would have what I asked for. I came to collect, and you wanted more time. I compromised, being more than gracious, making deals entirely on your behalf. I gave you my trust, and look how you repay me.

*appraises a pool cue idly*

Johnny: I regret that things had to come to this. I always liked you and your boys. Always telling jokes, makin' me laugh. But sometimes we have to be serious in life, and there is no longer place for laughter then. You should have been more serious a month ago. Even now you still aren't quite taking me seriously.

*approaches Graham, who is tied up and sitting on a chair, and cracks the cue across his jaw, sending slivers of wood flying in all directions*

Johnny: So let's be serious. I'm going to ask you a simple question, and I assure you, it is not a joke. You're going to have to make a decision.

*lifts Graham from his chair by his bloody collar*

Johnny: Which one of your boys is going to die tonight?

It's not until just now, after re-reading my prior post, that I realize yet another layer of awesome exists to it when you consider it'd be the "Holiday Special".

You'd go through the whole bloody, painful ordeal of watching the mafia brutally murder one of the LRR crew, the ensuing beatings of the survivors, and then sit through watching Graham delivering a tormented eulogy at the funeral, then fade to black with "Happy Holidays!" appearing in colorful and festive letters accompanied by cheerful Christmas music.

No wonder you people think I have issues.
