There’s a line in “Ocean’s 13” where Al Pacino and Andy Garcia are talking about a new table game that Bernie Mac is touting and Garcia says he’ll try it out at his Tunica property and Pacino says, “Mississippi? That’s where games go to die, isn’t it?”

The number one thing I miss when I go to Vegas is the Caesars drink menu. Lets say you want some red wine. You hit the menu on the slot machine, pick wine and beer, pick red wine, and click OK.

I tried to collect some of the better pictures of what the Mississippi flood looks like around the Tunica casinos. If you have some good ones, let me know and I can add to this post. It is strange seeing the places I walk though all the time now being underwater.
BTW, many of these pics come from TunicaMS by a photographer named Trey Clark. You can click on the pics to see larger versions or go to TunicaMS Flickr set. (more…)
