what other good options are there?
also, how do i make a layover in miami to spend a day or 2 there?
just played around and i can do nyc-mia on AA for 25k plus 5 bucks, and then for 9k avios round trip on to the bahamas
is that the best way?
problem is nyc-mia on american is very tough to find

If it is available on BA, it should be available on AA. May be easier to search there for you.

http://www.atlantis.com/casino/acpromotion.aspx

I did this promotion not to long ago. All I needed to do was have a players from a different casino. In Miami its simple to get. gulf stream casino has free bronze cards you can get and will work with this promotion.

The catch is that you have to play at least 6 hours during your stay in Atlantis. If your a gambler 6 hours is really nothing. You do have to pay a bit of taxes on the room  (per person) so for the four nights it I think it was like 10 bucks a night  or something, still dirt cheap. You get full access to everything in Atlantis in particular the water park. It is a great Water park as well as plenty of pools etc etc. All the rooms in the resort have a balcony which was great, as well as a fridge for any kosher food. It is hard to bring kosher food, your not really allowed to bring any meat etc but i think chicken with a usda sticker you can. It just depends if you  get stopped by customs or not. We did not :). Also it was a 30 dollar taxi to and from the resort. Defiantly can spend 4 days there without blinking. great place to go for a short cheap easy vacation. And to top it all off it cost just 4,500 avious points each way  to fly there from Miami.
Just called to do it they said $285 with all taxes and fees???

I'm going from 11/30-12/4. Staying in the Reef.

1) any minyan possibilities?
2) Anyone know anything about food?
      a) bringing food: maybe pomegranate meals which are ready made and flash frozen? do any of the monsey super-supermarkets do the same thing as pomegranate?
      b) in the bahamas: Is there a kosher place there? is there a delivery service for fruits & veggies? dry foods?
      c) any other food topics that I missed.
