    My Trip Report

    Long awaited trip, it's been 11 months since my last trip. This time it was just my drunken navy buddy and myself. I play mostly video poker, but also some slots and blackjack. DNB mostly plays video poker after he hit a royal a few years back with his very first $5 bill put in a bar top at Las Vegas Club.
    First day, I didn't get downtown until about 9:30 PM. DNB had gotten in around 10 am. Mostly walked around Fremont, stopping here and there for beers. Did a little gambling...

    Made it to bed around 2 am after grabbing a bite at Pop Up Pizza (good, quick eats).

    Day 2
    Forgot to mention that GN host sent a cheese and fruit plate up to the room. That made for a great hangover snack in the morning.
    Friday was the start of a 2 day Back to the Future 30th anniversary thing on Fremont. Feel old now? We did see Lea Thompson and Christopher Lloyd along with many Deloreans!

    Then it was time for a much anticipated trip to Pizza Rock to confirm the burger review.

    Best burger I've ever had! It's called the Burrata burger. Fries were covered in chunks of garlic and topped with rosemary. Much better than my previous favorite from Le Burger Brasserie.
    More gambling followed lunch. Here's a pic of my largest hit to date, pretty cool to win 18000 quarters!
