Not much to say...I don't do well on TR's... Wonderful trip, the RIO is alive and well. I didn't need to gamble much this trip...I'm way ahead on my Total Reward Tier Points so I did more visiting with friends and get togethers with message boards folks. (took lots of naps too!) Jacqui from www.everythinglv.com/forums/ and her 'mum'...both from Scottland and I had fun with the RIO's Breakfast Buffet one day and Steve, aka, 'vangrizz' from www.lasvegasadvisor.com and I met one morning in the RIO's Masquerade Village...he was entered in one of the Poker Tournaments there and it was great to finally put a face behind the 'avatar', lol, real nice guy... Jacqui, Steve....THANKS FOR ADDING TO THE GOOD TIMES! DIAMONDS INTERNATIONAL, CLUB RIO, BAMBALEOS...all closed. Theres a 'Rib' joint under construction in BAMBALEOS, the new outfit thats taking over CLUB RIO won't be up and running until next year, and no word who will fill DIAMONDS up on the mezzanine...LOTS OF FOLKS OUT OF WORK. LUCKY STRIKE Bowling Alley is goin' great guns... and Cafe Martorano DOSEN'T SEAT SINGLES! I told 'em where they could stick their Rigatoni. The VOODOO CAFE, now VOODOO STEAK has a new menu and increase in prices of about fifteen bucks per dinner. I had dinner at TAO in the Venetian one night after a MATSURI...pretty loud in there and wasn't impressed with dinner at all. What I did enjoy another day, was Picasso's ceramic work on display at Bellagio's Gallery OfFine Art. The slots in Masquerade Village were good to me, got 4ACES on Double Bonus over at the PALMS one morning (nice way to start the day) took a $2800. bankroll down/brought $2200. home. I have some Show thoughts up in SHOWS and ENTERTAINMENT.
