Workforce Friday: Dining at Horseshoe Casino


WITH THIS WEEK’S EDITION OF
WORKFORCE.
GOOD MORNING.
THE LIGHTS ARE ALWAYS ON, THE
MUSIC IS PLAYING.
24-7.
IT NEVER STOPS.
REALLY, AND IT’S HART TO
BELIEVE THAT WE ARE A MONTH AWAY
FROM THE ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF
THE HORSESHOE CASINO.
IT HAS BECOME A BIG PART OF
BALTIMORE.
A LOT OF PEOPLE COME HERE TO
PLAY AND HAVE FUN BUT THERE ARE
A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO WORK HERE,
THEY CALL THIS THEIR WORKFORCE,
THE FOLKS IN THE RESTAURANTS,
THE FOLKS ON THE FLOOR HERE IN
THE CASINO.
BEHIND THE SCENES.
THAT’S RIGHT, 1900 EMPLOYEES
HERE WORKING 24 HOURS A DAY,
SINCE THE CASINO IN HER CLOSES,
AND THAT MEANS THAT THERE IS A
LOT OF EMPHASIS ON SURVEILLANCE,
SECURITY, MAINTENANCE.
HOUSEKEEPING.
THE BIGGEST ATTRACTION, OF
COURSE, IS THE GAMING, WITH THE
CASINO FLOOR COVERING 122,000
SQUARE FEET.
VERY BIG.
AND WITH MORE THAN 2,000 SLOTS,
200 TABLE GAMES ARE ALWAYS
DEALERS IN ATTENDANCE.
ATTENDANCE AROUND.
IF YOU COME HERE, YOU WILL
PROBABLY EAT, AS WELL, THERE ARE
THREE FEATURED RESTAURANTS AND
PLENTY OF DINING OPTIONS.
WE CAUGHT UP WITH THE GUY BEHIND
ONE OF THOSE PREMIUMS
RESTAURANTS.
THEY TAKE FROM WHAT THEY
HAVE.
JIMMY JOHNSON DESCRIBES THE
FLAVOR.
THAT’S WHAT I FEEL BALTIMORE IS
ABOUT.
JOHNSON AND HIS STAFF WHIP UP
EVERYTHING FROM SCRATCH, AT THE
BALTIMORE KITCHEN AND BAR.
GUY’S BARBECUE JOINT.
THEY PUT THEIR TIME AND
EFFORT INTO EACH DISH.
THEY ARE TRYING TO ENTERTAIN
YOU, TO SHOW YOU WHAT FOOD CAN
BE.
GAMBLING MAYBE — MAY BE THE
MAIN ACT BUT THE HORSESHOE
CASINO 5 RESTAURANT AND
MARKETPLACE ARE NO SIDE SHOW
WITH THE WORKFORCE COOKING UP
MORE THAN JUST A PART-TIME GIG.
EVERYBODY IS TRYING TO GROW.
THE CITY IS ALWAYS TRYING TO
GROW, IT HAS BEEN THROUGH A LOT
OF STUFF AND NOW IT’S TRYING TO
KEEP GOING AND PUSHING.
I SEE THAT IN MY STAFF.
THAT’S WHAT I LIKE TO SEE.
LUCKY FOR US, THE RESTAURANT
IS NOT OPEN, WE’RE RIGHT BEHIND
THIS RESTAURANT.
IF I HAD TO SMELL BARBECUE ALL
MORNING —
OH, I KNOW.
YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN
DISTRACTED.
VERY MUCH SO.
AND COMING UP, WE’LL HAVE
