I've thought about making the trip to Savannah to play on the casino boats but since we usually hit Florida 1-2 times a year I've just resigned myself to do that. Hard Rock Tampa is awesome btw. Also the Ebro dog track, although in the middle of nowhere and looking rundown as hell for a track, has an immaculate poker room that is actually very nice. When I'm in the Sarasota/Tampa/St Pete area I hit up the Hard Rock, and when in Panama City I go to Ebro.
EDIT: Harrah's Cherokee is no longer dry, their first drink was served on Dec 29, 2009 according to Wikipedia. But they can only serve between 7am and 2am M-Sat and Noon-2am Sunday.
Yeah I was going to say they are not dry any more.
Poker there is only on Pokertek tables BTW, so no real chips. It still plays like live poker though.
I have not been there for several months, but like playing there.
Next best is Florida, I wouldn't bother with the boats!
