Yesterday a federal judge threw out the conviction of a Staten Island poker room operator accused of violating the Illegal Gambling Business Act (IGBA), ruling that poker does not qualify as gambling under the statute because it is primarily a game of skill.This should set a good precedent.
A Whiskey Club established in 2003, we meet once monthly at the home of a member. We sample a whisk(e)y, scotch or bourbon that we've never tried before. We sip, smell, taste and repeat...then talk about it. Think of it as a book club for guys who really aren't in the mood to be reading books.
