Long ago, when my buddy and I used to go to Vegas, whenever we saw a bum we would shout out Downtown baby, downtown. I've become that bum, preferring to play downtown than the strip. In honor of the Royal Flusher, I have played more VP this trip and hit a quad on a vintage coin DBVp (or something like that) for 400 units at the El Cortez. Later playing at the bar @ MSS, I followed the strict rules of parlay, started playing JOB VP for 50 cents for the first time ever. I've always only played VP as a break from blackjack, never playing it seriously. I've had pleasant results so far this trip. However, the highlight so far was playing BJ @ MSS I spotted a dealer that looked familiar to me. Her name is Carol and I asked if she use to deal @ the Stardust. Well, yes, she did for 29 years until it was imploded. This woman has been dealing from the mob days. The reason I remembered her was because even though back in the 80"s she was what is now known as a MILF, she still looks the same (or close enough). So she has been a dealer for 38+ years, still loves it and still looks fine. Don't get me wrong, I would still take my girl V from the GG over her, but I seriously doubt V will look as good in 30 years. I also noticed @ the GN a bartender by the pool, but inside (don't know the name of the bar). She use to tend bar graveyard in the sports book. Think her name is Allison. Back then she also worked as a surgical assistant. Noticed her today, but think she has had some enhancement (or one helluva of a push of bra).
