    My Trip Report

    A la BS (aka Frosty) I'll use this thread to share some antics and to keep track of my local gambol...for 2016:

    Went to my local with the wife for NYE on a VIP invite from my local host. 3 course dinner, unlimited top shelf liquor etc: On a side note, every time I hit my local they give me $50 in FP.

    Started off with a few local beers in the HL slot room, met a few old friends (haven't been at my local since Oct 15th), unfortunately the few beers before dinner cost me $500 (and donked off the $50 in FP also)

    Dinner was amazing, first course was scallops (duh, I live in N.S. best scallops in the world - Digby), 2nd course was Lamb + Tenderloin pairing with sweet potato and asparagus and crème brulee cheesecake for dessert...it was all very delish:

    After dinner we head back downstairs, me to play some BJ and the wife for LIR. Wife went down $200 REAL FAST on LIR, and I dumped about 800 real quick on BJ, so before midnight we were down around 1500 ISH. Forgot to mention that I was also given 4 VIP tickets to the sold out (Matt and the Minnitrones) show to ring in the New Year, we ended up giving them away to one of the wife's employees who we randomly bumped into as they were fans.

    As 12:00 was fast approaching I was in for 1500 + 900 and had about 600 left in front of me in chips. They put the cap on the tray as 12:00 hit, passed out champagne and we had some smooches/made a few calls etc...then the cap came off. I wanted to have a decent bet for my first of 2016 so I pushed my chips in and asked for a purple. I bet the purple:
    Get 7,7, dealer gets an ACE....Insurance anyone....NO Thanks
    Whew dealer didn't have it, but I have to take a card....and a 10...Fuck me gently with a crowbar, dealer flips a 3 or something, then a 7...made the 21 anyway, I feel a littler better busting out....

    I'm all but out of cash and another ATM run is imminent, I think I have maybe 3 greens left so I'm back to betting my base unit ($25), I then proceed to go on a little tear, winning back around 1000 or so progressing up to $175+ a hand. I cash out my k, and hunt down the wife, of course she is playing LIR, so I sit down an join her.

    They are not fans of taking pics at my local at all, check out the dealer on the next table over ratting me out to the pit critter:

    Focus on Bitch-Face, lol:

    Ended up getting 2, 3OAK's and cashing out of that table up $600. I think I have like 1600 on me now (remember I was down to $75 ish)....

    So I take a hundo and put it into a $5 Slot, get in the bonus and BAM, 2k (well played it up to 2k):

    IMG-20160106-WA0011.jpg

    So now I have $3500 in my pocket and am UP $1100 on the night, wooohooo, so I go play some more LIR with the wife. She ends up cashing in around +$800 or so, and we leave drunk at 6:30am with $4100 ISH, Cab ride home was $20 and tipped the driver an additional $20 (pay it forward).

    Final tally for this session: ~ +$1500

    On behalf of 6 individual VMB members (You guys know who you are), I told you I'd be doing something around Christmas time with that $$. So on December 17th I donated $1000 to Feed Nova Scotia this year, on behalf of "VMB Members".

    Your "Flight contribution" went towards that donation:

    Cheers..

    I don't think those hundos lasted very long in my pocket that trip ..I remember vaguely that Dutch's was the last one...

    Your 100 went to a great cause and helped put food on the table for needy families during the holidays...

    Those "VMB flight donations" actually fed over 260 people Christmas Day dinner....Thanks!
