Well....so I posted about the upgrade before we left...and lets just say with that upgrade and the room rate, that was my only win in Vegas this time! So here goes... 9/1..flight from MKE to LAS Air tran, not too bad, drank a few cocktails prior to leaving and then a few more on the plane...not a bad flight..just takes too long! Crazy considence... I ran into a co-worker of mine on our same flight and then My hubbys uncle as well! Now I have never met this uncle of his so that was nice. We get to Vegas and take a sedan to the Gold Coast...Check in at about 6pm, the room was awesome, sorry no pics, I wanted to get down to gamble so I figured we have 3 more days here Ill get some pics...oops. So there is no safe in the room and I usually put my daily budget in the safe for the remainder of the trip and I didnt seeing as there wasnt one, I carried it on me(mistake #1) We get to a table $5 min so we play..Drink server comes and I order a triple baileys on the rocks..hand her $5, she was a great server, had about 5 more from her(with a $5 tip each time) and then she goes on break...but i see her and her relief talking and pointing to me, then she comes by right away..handed her another $5. She gets me a bout 3 more and then the original server comes back. So Im doing ok at the table...pretty much even. We get 2 shots of Patron and give her $20 and then thats were it went downhill. The original server leaves and I get another new one. And then my gaming goes down. I change to a $10 table and lose another $100 in about 20 mins. only one drink at that table. I talk to Mark, a floor supervisor at the Gold Coast, about getting a comped buffet, and apparently they do not comp guests that are staying there?? I did manage to get 3 packs of cigs from the server tho that was good. So we talk to Mark a little more and he tells us just to eat and charge to the room and when we check out to see about the comps. We ate at the diner in the Coast and well, I may have been slightly intoxicated, but it was bad. My bun was freezing and to top it off the busser filled my water and brushed her arm on the bun....ha it was funny tho. So I know that I told you about losing $200, but some how I managed to lose $550 and I could not tell you where it went?!? So its about 5 am and we call it a night. Wake up at 8 am and ready to drink! The uncle calls to see our plans, were on the shuttle to Bills and headed to O'sheas, where I lose 40 in 3 hands of let it Ride....lame. not one drink..I wasnt ready anyway. Feeling a little shitty from the night before!! Off to walk the strip a little. Stop at the Casino Royale little slot pull thing, and win $100 in free slot play, which is a waste of time, you only win if you hit a jackpot, took me forever to play it down! off to TI..I love this place, we found a nice little $5 table we all sit down and play...I am the only one a head so they all go to the bar. I only bought in with the 60 I had left and leave with $120. Head to the bar to find them, they had about 3 shots there, all but the uncle, who was driving so no alcohol for him! sit there for a bit, and back to the tables. found a few more pits and played some Roulette, bought in for $20 and left with $60 (i think) back to my table I go...having great luck one on one and then a few ppl join and its bad, so I follow the relief dealer...luck changed again...for the good. so i have $300 and follow him to Pai Gow..lost 20 not bad. then I see the hubby, and I can tell by his mannerisms that he is DRUNK....find out he had about 6 shots of Cuervo and 5 beers in that hour...so after a little tif with the floor and dealer, we leave. Not before I get my free pack of cigs Off to Harrahs, only have $10 three card, so I ask the floor if I can play $5 she says yes as long as no one sits down, I wasnt there long enough for that to happen! look of at the hubby and he had 2 rocks glasses empty...those were full shots of patron...uh oh. Off to Ellis Island... Use the ACG cupons for 2-1, 4 free cocktails and $5 matchplay won $20 on the table and here our number called so I left the table.. so were all at the table and my hubby was well incohereant, hands holding up his head, and not looking well. Then he stands up and walks out of the resturant. I had uncle Dave follow and so I get up and see a machine to put a $10 in. Win 10 and go to the new Wheel game and hit for $85. (i hate slots but I wanted to see how josh was so I was passing time! So Now, our food comes and Josh and Dave come back. I am not sure why I even ordered him food, but I did. The steak was Awesome.. I thought it would be good for the value or whatever, but it was a GOOD steak! Im going to have to finish later, but heres a pic to laugh at! Josh is passed out on his salad!!
