    In Atlanta. Someone got arrested after coming unglued for them closing the door on him. He didn't have a ticket. So I decided to instigate and ask how did you get past security without a ticket and don't you have a phone like everyone else in the world? Then ran off to get some food. Hehe.

    Day one. Can driver tried the would you like to take the freeway bit. I asked him if that's the best way (I knew) and he perks up and says absolutely. Do I told him to take the city streets and his shoulders dropped.

    Battle buddy had no idea what that was about. Uber....I should have used you.

    We get to the hotel and he asks what he did for the tip. Puzzled I said you drove us here and he just looked mad. I think he was trying to force us to give him a bigger tip than my buddy gave him. We started to smell that signature smell from the doors behind us and got our bags and headed in.

    Didn't get coded for VIP....went and got our two room. Mine wasn't ready. It's 1pm so I shrug and say I'll stick my stuff in yours and they can text me and we head to get a bite to head.

    Pantry. Not as bad as I had expected given things I've read here. Had Poblano and Corn chowder and it was really good. Off to the craps table. Buddy has to get his players card and I just locked in on the table dead ahead.

    Two hours later down we head to get our conference materials and cash out down a little. Crew was fantastic and the rating was bumped up when I asked how I did. Box man actually said hey you've been good to the girls and I'm going to bump your rating up. Thanked him and went away. So far so good.

    We get second lunch and decided to try out BLT I mean LVB. We both eat somewhat healthy and I decided to get a WTF burger (What the Flock). Not a bad turkey burger and I don't what he was on it like the a hooker at the cashier looking for marks.

    We decide to make another run of craps and the next table had another great crew who once we started throwing a few tips out really entertained well. Walked away back up after shift change and rating was double what it should have been and I was gone with that. He even did a chip count around halfway and indicated as such. I had given this crew $500 in tips just doing random $25 pass line bets for them. Almost all won.

    Her remember I didn't have a room? I still don't have a room and now I am worried. Head back to the desk and the girl apologized profusely and said no your room is ready. Penthouse 1BR. I said sweet took my room number and we went to move the luggage. Gotta say the Penthouse is far better than I expected given the price. I've been at Bellagio for years and the standard suite is what I always get.

    Went back down after getting a snack out of the luggage and decided to play blackjack. Battle Buddy doesn't have the bankroll to do anything other than minimum and I explained the horrible 6:5 to him and he said I'll just try. We sit down and he gets seven blackjack a in a row and I'm over here laughing at him because he's getting $2 extra each time. I stay about thirty minutes and can't stand it anymore so I tell him I'm heading to the dice.

    The box man at the table I show up at is the same one from the YouTube videos where he's at one time sleeping. I immediately recognize him and nothing has changed. Had a virgin shooter from England start a monster roll. She has one bet on the table and the point is five. She hits every damn number but four. I've pressed my come bets considerably. And the rail is filling up. Hit a two parlay hard six for the dealers they appreciated the winnings. Threw this lady at least two black chips as she wasn't winning anything. Finally she craps out and I look down we all cheer some crazy beetle maniac older ladies are cheering behind us and I cash in quadrupling my buy in. Cage gives me the do you have any markers every time I cash in and this time wants my player card. Under 10k but she punches some stuff in computer and then hands me my stack of bills. Safe is starting to look nice as I got bed and passed out.

    A nice start to the trip even though I had the bad vibes from the cab driver and room not ready debacle. No debauchery and one hell of a hangover this morning I had so many cocktails and after a while that lovely girl was giving me straight Jack Daniels.

    Mirage I might like you.

    Mirage giveth and Mirage taketh away....

    After a day of listening to nerds at the conference me, battle buddy and several of us from work decided for dinner at Heritage last night and would play craps until then.

    Table threw me a beating and I went to eat down the previous day's winnings.

    $1000 dinner later and god knows how many cocktails I'm ready to make the table limp for a week. Up down up down up down. But then the next shooter...we will call her "Fun Pillows"....starts a monster roll. We call her that here because we can't at the table....we tried. The crew didn't care for it. She didn't mind she was showing the world her ample assets. About four hours later we are exhausted and quit. Cash in up a little and head back to the elevator bank and what do you know right next to that Brazilian steak house is Kitty Glitter. My slots Kryptonite.

    Drop $20 in and two spins later not a damn thing. Start heading to bed and stop in sundry store to get a power aid and some go juice for the morning. Battle buddy heads up stairs and I'm alone, mad at Kitty Glitter and decide to exact my revenge on it. Several cocktails later and it goes black.

    Wake up when the sun comes out in bed still fully clothed. Suit is wrinkled all to hell and I'm staggering around trying find the toilet and realize I'm so dehydrated I barley piss and my eyes are dry as hell and not wanting to open without excruciating pain.

    I realize I don't remember coming to the room so I panic and wonder what the hell happened. Tv was on and some horrible B movie was playing. Having all that cash with me alone means no idea what I did. Can't find my money or my drinks just an empty shopping bag in my pocket - yes one of those big Mlife bags. Finally found the drinks in the wet bar as well as my cash in the garbage can. Whew. No empty condom wrappers or dead hookers in the living room and the bidet hasn't been used as a crapper so sounds like I had a hell of a time but managed to maintain some modicum of bodily functions.

    shower shave iron the next day's clothes and finally make it out

    Crews and Cw have been super nice and apparently they think my name is George....
    At least I heard them say there goes George when I walked by with one eye still stuck shut and the other bloodshot. Carnegie Deli for an omelet and lots of water.

    Sitting here listening to these nerds again while I watch the lights go everywhere and I feel like I'm gonna hurl.

    Mirage....I think I love you.

    "they think my name is George"

    In dealer speak that means that you're a very good tipper!

    Great TR thus far

    Ok where was I?

    This was a long day and nothing really exciting happened but a few tips on food.

    After the day of nerd stuff got a royal beating with the cubes of misery. Decided to eat dinner around 6pm and picked the Japanese restaurant. Actually really good rolls and the prices were decent even outside of Vegas for the quality. Server was a very lovely lady and her recommendations on which rolls were spot on.

    Had a few strawberry sake mojito beverages and hit the blackjack table for a couple of hours. Left up and had a pretty good time. Back to the craps table for more climbing back from losses of the bankroll but had a wonderful time playing and this sultry looking lady was rolling like crazy and everyone figured she was a working girl. She ordered something fruity and I asked for the same thing because I was drunk and bored with my current drink. Pineapple Juice and Petron. I had them all night long after trying one and God does tequila make me do stupid stuff with my money.

    After around 1am cashed out and a few of us and the sultry lady went to play a bunch of different slots all over the place. No she wasn't a working girl just a nice person who appreciated having company of others who weren't going to hit on her. Those who did were shot down promptly and it was humorous.

    Finished out the night with a half dead liver and 60% of my days bankroll depleted. Got to the room close to 4:30 and couldn't sleep for anything. Now I've got the I didn't sleep shakes heh but all in all still had a great time.

    Tip. Carnegie deli for breakfast is super fast and good. Had the western omelet yesterday and today use bacon and eggs. First time I've had bacon in a while and was nice to have.

    Now I'm sitting here hung over trying to concentrate and take notes without having a coronary event. It's no fun getting old.

    I hope to have more luck tonight but all in all its well within my tolerance of losses and only affected that day's cut.

    I'll give the new place a try tonight next to the high limit room. The shoe shine guy did a good job on the shoes and gave me a stack of buy one get one drinks for the place when after settling up.

    Favorite dealers of the trip last night from talking and interactive with the table standpoint. Only a few dealers were meh and they were training on Monday. Vince, Soozie and Robert. Soozie is fun to watch with players that don't take her advice when asking her for it.

    Always 10 once in a while a 15 table or two. Never had a time when there wasn't 1 at 10. Last night they had 4 of the six open and pretty full but not Bellagio on Friday night full. Never got too cramped.

    My God you have been living it up. My favorite was finding your money in the garbage can - what were you thinking? :)
