    Hey folks. Took a few years off from poker but I've been slowly starting to play a bit again. Found the site while doing some research trying to find a nice casino quality chip set for my office/home games and found WAY more info than I thought I was going to. Having a blast browsing around here and checking out all the custom sets.

    Did anyone else think "Greetings from Nevada Jacks" when they saw this title? :)

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone.

    Picked up a small cash set of Horseshoe Cleveland that I just need to round out with some quarters and probably some more $1s. That will hold me for quite a while until I get the urge to do a custom set. I think if my regular home game becomes a bit more common I may go down that route.

    It always amazes me when someone names a NJ town that I've never even heard of -- like Union Beach! :cool:

    And I grew up in Edison, later lived in Forked River, Princeton -- more than half my life.

    Happens to me all the time as well. You can thank Http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boroughitis for that.

    Union Beach is at the northern tip of the shore. By Keyport, Keansburg, Hazlet, Holmdel, Middletown, etc.

    Yeah, I had looked it up right away. And I've probably ridden a bike right through Union Beach on 36. One of my uncles used to own a charter boat out of Atlantic Highlands.

    Plus I worked at Bell Labs Holmdel for a while.

    This small world is sometimes surprisingly vast. Or half-vast.

    If you could do something about the traffic I hit by you seemingly everyday on my way to work, that would be great. Thanks!
