    My Trip Report

    I stayed 4 nites comp'd at MSS
    And Stratosphere for 4 nites ( I overlapped at the 2 properties )
    Paid $28 + $28, free, free, at The Strat.
    .
    MSS was very LUCKY for me !...I hated to go ! and almost
    left The Strat after only one nite.
    .
    I went the first 4 days at MSS without losing -
    well...okay the fourth day I ended down $6....yes, ....six dollars !
    .
    Here's how the gambling went --
    I played mostly at The Boar Bar.
    Saw Jose, Kelli, and Joey "towels".
    The .05 Bonus Poker progressive ( near the elevators ) kept rising.
    That baby was overdue !
    $650 when I arrived and soared up to $1,200.
    I did hit 4 aces with a duece kicker for $200 one afternoon -
    but mostly it took any $$ I played.
    .
    I played VP and a few cheap penny slots at about 10 cents a pull -
    just to waste some time.
    I made only ONE bet at the crap table - more on that later.
    .
    Day #1.......+100
    Day#2........+ 975
    Day # 3.....+ 150
    Day #4.......-6......yup....but what a "comeback" I made !:thumbsup:
    .
    Day#2.....I am saying "hello" to barkeep Kelli......I am yappin' away +
    I hold 3 diamond face cards........in mid sentence....the other two
    face diamonds pop up.....ROYAL FLUSH !!!!!!!:nworthy:
    I "Hi Five" Kelli + whoop it up !
    My second ROYAL ever ! ( last yr was my first - at Stratosphere ).
    The VP machine now plays "music" while you wait for your hand pay.
    The lady next to me asked me about the music --
    I said "I think this is new ? Cos when my wife hit a Royal - I didn't
    hear any music ?"
    .
    Day #4 ...."The Comeback !"
    Got wacked at Boar Bar VP......went over to the .05 progressive.
    This is when I hit 4 aces w/ duece kicker = $200.
    I was still down.
    Walked by a near empty Crap table.
    One guy shooting alone......I watch.....he keeps rolling 8.
    I jump in.... "$10 Hard Eight !!!"
    two rolls later....."HARD EIGHT !".......the dealers look at me ?
    "How the hell did he know ?" THAT LOOK !:evillaugh
    I walk over to the Penny slots.......and come away w/ $20.
    ALL TOTAL ?......MINUS 6 bucks !
    What a "COMEBACK" !::thumbsup:

    What is MSS? I tried to figure it out. Yes please comment on microbrews.

    A good microbrewery from the Southern PA region is Troegs, just in case anyone gets around there

    Zerofan,
    Brewmeister Special was Honey Lager +
    Spicey Belgian = only in the brew pub.
    The Honey Lager - I tried two consecutive days.
    First day, I thought "Not bad."
    Second day, I could really taste how SWEET it was.
    Too sweet for my taste.
    The Spicey Belgian ?.....I asked "What's the spice ?"
    I was told "Orange-y taste."
    It was better than the Honey Lager.
    I should have asked the alcohol content -- cos "my
    @ss was kicked" when I left the brew pub ! :drunk:
    .
    June 5th ?........not long.
    It got hot as hell -- just the weekend, I left.
    Man, did I miss those $1.50 micros when I moved to The Strat -
    where i paid $5 for a crappy Coors light !

    one thing i hate about vegas is the gouging of drinks when you aren't playing!!! mss is a perfect spot, as is ellis island, for the drinking fan, but not the gambling fan. :beer::beer::beer:
