    My Trip Report

    My TR for NSF…

    When you’re at the airport, about to leave Vegas and you have a voice mail from a fellow NSF’er that says.. “ Sticky, are you dead?â€.. You know you probably have an interesting TR to write up.

    Here goes. Friday Oct 20 get to airport at noon and check in fine. Flight to salt lake was smooth and on time. A couple of us at the back of the plane ( which was pretty much the front too when there’s only 14 rows of seats ) decided to get some drink on. The one guy next to me didn’t have change to buy a jack and coke so I bought him a drink for good karma. Get to Salt lake and send a few text messages out to announce I’m half way there and I get a call from Mikey saying that Angy was on her way to the airport and had negative time to make her flight. I let out a “ right on! “ :thumbsup: and I get on the plane to Vegas. Flight arrives pretty close to on time, I go through the rat race of landing at the D gates and take the tram to terminal 1 and make my way to baggage. There waiting for me, was Mikey. I spot him before he see’s me and I almost got to sneak up on him and but he caught me. We grabbed my bag, hopped into his shiney new truck and with Elvis blasting out Viva las vegas, we head to NYNY. Check in and get a room in the Chrysler tower 35 floor with a shit view but what the hell. It’s free. This is where my attention to detail starts to fade so I’ll try and get the chronological order of events close.

    Once I drop off the bag and we sort out some gifts and what not, It’s time to get NSF started. We had about 4 hours to kill before the meet at Paris for the party bus/limo ride. I think I hit the slots first. I spotted a money storm which is a fav of mine and start spinning. With my offer from NYNY, I had 100 free play on slots. I put my card in, activate the free play and with in about 10 mins and some head scratching trying to figure out exactly how this works we realize that I’m up over 100 bucks already and still have half the free play to use up. I keep going and before it’s done, my free play earned me about 160 bucks! SCORE!.. My good karma on the plane paid off!. Mikey and I wander around NYNY a bit trying this and that and then decide to head over to Paris and try some gambling there while waiting. I get a players card, and then Mikey finds a Pai Gow table and sits down. He trys to get me in, but I’m still a bit anxious about playing table games so I watch. The game seems a bit confusing to me. Before we know it, it’s 9:30 and we get a call from Becky saying “ bus is here†So, I make a pit stop at the ladies room and there is a bit of a wait, so Mikey sticks his head in the door and goes “ Sticky! Party bus is here. Hurry up†and a few girls turned around, look at me and I just shrugged my shoulders and smiled! Gotta love it.

    We meet outside with Becky, Tonya, Marty, John ( aka Sliversmiff) and Shock and get on board. First stop is a liquor store to stock up the bar. Marty fills the role of bartender and we proceed to the airport for the first pick up. Sin is about to land so we pick her up and then cruise the strip for about ½ an hour before we are to go back and get Angy. It was pretty fun. I’ll leave out the details, but you can probably figure it out. A party bus, bar, booze and stripper pole = interesting pics!


    With the whole gang aboard, it’s time to kick it up a notch. Driving down the strip sticking our heads out the window yelling obscene things to strangers, making random observations and Disco music filling in the gap, it’s a damn fun ride. Mikey had his 4 pack of sharpie markers and we got the tattoos out of the way. We hit the Welcome sign for some pictures and then ride out the rest of the ride to Harrahs for some Carnval Court buffoonery.

    We pour out of the party bus and make our way to Carnaval Court. Get inside and head straight to the dance floor. It’s a blast dancing around and we bump into Cheran and her friend and I’m just happy to be finally in Vegas, bit of a buzz and great company. Time to take a break from dancing and we find a table just right of the BJ tables and Cheran brings out the blank name tags. We have sharpies courtesy of Mikey so we make some unique tags and proceed to stick them in all kinds of places with all kinds of sayings and we just laugh and drink. I love Vegas! Cheran’s friend ( sorry, I forget your name) has a “ buy me a drink†badge on her ass, I ended up with “ If found drunk, please send back to Canada†and “ Sugar Momma†There we’re others too, but can’t recall right now.
    I am not sure, but I think a couple of us ended up sitting down at the BJ tables.. Did I play? I can’t remember. Why is it that I can’t remember things like that? If memory serves me right, there was zero love at the table so we quickly left CC after they were telling us it’s closing time and we all kind of scattered. Oh, I forgot Mikey and I hadn’t eaten yet so we headed over to O’shea’s for some Pizza. Mediocre at best. Nothing great.
    The gang started to break up now and I think Mikey, myself and Angy? Ended up back at NYNY for some more drinks at the bar. DAMN! Why is it all fuzzy now? I can’t remember crap. Anyway, I know we were at the bar, Angy found a friend and we kind of just hung out and then rolled into the room around 4:00am. First night in vegas was great!

    After no more than maybe 2 hours of sleep, I’m awake and it’s time to start day 2. Mikey and I decide to try some breakfast/lunch at the America Café in NYNY. Get seated, order and waited FOREVER for our food. Ridiculous. Horrible service, but the food was not bad. I had a club house. Can’t remember what Mikey had and we get out of there and it’s time to gamble a bit. I think I hit my money storm machine and pretty sure I pulled out a good profit from it. This is now my ATM for the trip. After that, I think Mikey and I decide to try our luck at TI. I like that casino, it’s home to my famous Marty slot machine and I wanted to see if Marty still had his mojo. Marty sucks. No more Marty. All I’ll say about that. Mikey finally gets me to sit down at a table game. Pai Gow. I buy in for 100 bucks, learn the basics and it’s actually a fairly easy game to play to my surprise. Have a few drinks, maybe made a few bucks and I’m hooked on Pai Gow!. After a few hours there, We head back to NYNY so Mikey can drop me off for what was supposed to be a NAP and He had to go home and pick up a few things. I get dropped off, make my way through the casino and my money storm machine is empty so what the hell, I sit down, put in 5 bucks and what do ya know. I’m up about 170!. Who says slots don’t pay. HELL ya they do, you just need the Sticky touch. I call Mikey and I call hubby at home just to rub it in lol to let them know my mini win and I head up to the room. The plan for tonight was to hit Voodoo at Rio with the gang. I didn’t get a nap in, but showered up, and Mikey shows up and we decide to do some gambling and dinner before we head to RIO. We ended up at Gonazalez Gonzalez something or other. The Mexican joint in NYNY. We sat at a table that had a rather peculiar picture. There was a decent looking mexican lady holding a basket of fruit, but her arms were oddly about 4 feet long. Starring at it, we were't quite sure what to make of it. was good for a chuckle. Talking about Ron white and throwing tater quotes back and forth. Not bad, tastey drinks for sure! I had just a plain beef burrito, Mikey had.. uh.. something and we just talked about this and that. A nice dinner and great conversation. Time to head to the Pai Gow tables and while we’re walking out, we spot Angy and Marty. They are going up to the room so Angy can change and we say we’ll hook up in the casino after and head over to RIO. Mikey and I sit down at a Pai Gow table and have a few drinks and just kick back. It’s not the kind of game where ya win big, but a few wins and many pushes and My 100 bucks pretty much stays put so that’s cool. Angy and Marty find us and we hop in a cab to RIO. Angy is trying to tell us about a strip club she wants to check out and the driver is arguing with her about what it is, why chics have all the power. It was a fun ride! We get to RIO and hook up with everyone at Bambeleo’s. Some of the gang were going to eat, which we already did, so we hit the casino floor to wait. Marty, Angy, Mikey and I ended up at that Rapid Roulette. I made *uck all at it, Mikey doubled up and Marty lost. Angy missed a few good wins so we scrapped that. After that, we kinda decided against going to Voodoo. There was no way I was going to be able to stand for hours so Mikey and I split and headed over to GVR. I had always wanted to see that place and what better time to. I really like it there. I was an avid watcher of American Casino so It felt familiar already. We sit down at a Pai Gow table and took a kick in the ass the first few hours. Push after push and some bad beats and slowly things turned around and we had made a small comeback. It was fun just sitting there and drinking and relaxing. After about 4 hours there and barely breaking even. I think Mikey actually won, we head back to NYNY. Decided to play a little more there. Then we get a call that Angy lost her room key and needed to get in so, after some confusion, Sin, Patti, Angy and Marty find us at the Pai Gow table and we call it a night and head to the room. I had a good drunk on and we just hung out laughing, lookin at pics, jumping on the bed and with the sun coming up, crash for a few hours.

    Sunday.. OUCH!!!.. Drinking and lack of sleep have caught up with me. I got a text message from CK about lunch at Mon ami gabi, but I was in no shape to appear in a place like that. I could have walked into Mcdonalds and people would have been like “ damn, she looks like a bus hit her†So I passed on lunch and just took my time waking up. I did really crave a KK donut and coffee, so somehow I managed to drag my sorry ass over to Excaliber and bring back some goodies to the room. I barely made it back. That was a bad move trying to walk that with 3 coffees, a bag of donuts I was weaving back and forth barely holding my burrito down.

    After an hour or so, I feel a bit better and Mikey and I are back at the Pai Gow table. This is where things go wrong. I think lost about 60 bucks. Mikey did worse. I wont rub it in, but it was BAD..I need to do some shopping and Mikey has to work that night so we split and I head to Aladin and he hits the sheets for a nap. I come back to the room around 5:00 and put a quick text out to Larry who’s coming in sometime that night to join up with whats left of NSF. We agree to hook up later around 8:00 after a much needed nap. I wake up around 7:15 and call Larry and I’m in a cab on my way to Flamingo to meet up with him, sin, Patti, Shock, John and we head over to LVC. Sorry guys that my showing up meant taking 2 cabs.. that kinda sucked but thanks for waiting for me!.
    In the cab it’s Patti, Larry and I and sin phones larry. Something was said and they are in the cab right behind us and Patti and I do a little move making Larry look like a lucky guy and the cab behind us, flashes his lights and they are cracking up!
    Get to LVC and head up to the upper deck for a late supper. I order a clubhouse again and it was really good! That’s a nice little gem downtown. I’d eat there again anytime.
    After dinner, it’s time to say goodbye to Sin. We head downstairs and Chef is there to take her to the airport. Pour Patti had to go through saying goodbye, after grabbing a full box of Kleenex, she’s in tears as Sin pulls away. It sucks saying buy to friends in vegas. We pull through and it’s time to board the grain train. First stop la bayou but they don’t have the yard longs. Only football cups and Styrofoam so we head over to mermaids. I get a split Strawberry passion/banana something yard long and we take a few pics out side and it’s time for poker at the plaza!! Yeehaa. I’d been waitin to do that. John talks to the whomever you call it at the poker room and they agree to set up a 2/4 limit table for us under the agreement, that others may join and we’ll have to tighten up the rules if so. Patti had never played before so we were just going to play for fun and help her out. Of course, I sit left of John cause I’m smart lol! Second hand in, he gets dealt 4oak Jacks and gets the high hand prize of $109! Nice one!. Some “ beginners†(my ass) end up joining us and we play a while, I managed to win a few pots and got my $60 buy in up near 120 so that was good. But Patti! OMG! With Larry helping her a bit, she damn near tripled her buy in! you go girl! Your well on your way to being a poker legend here on T2v!
    We decide it’s time to move on and we head back to LVC hoping to find chef again who was supposed to join us, but never did. We find an empty pai gow table and John, Patti, Shock, myself and Larry sit down. I’m good and drunk now, pretty much even for the round and Mikey is due to call to hopefully join us. I missed his call, but he got a hold of larry and 20 minutes later he’s there. Side note,. John ( silversmiff ) is with CK on a BJ table beside us and he sends over a Jaegerbomb to larry. I tell larry to send him back a Shirley temple and about 10 mins later, the waitress brings him his Shirley temple and in a loud, clear voice we hear “ Here’s your Shirley temple sir†and we bust out laughing.:Þ Damn funny!. We end up getting on a dice game and I’m good and drunk. I don’t have a clue about craps, but Mikey is beside me placing my bets and it’s all good. That game gets shut down so we end up on a nother table. About 10 rye and cokes later I’m opening up with all kinds of talk at the table. I had a case of gender misunderstanding and said something to Mikey about the “ chic†dealer wouldn’t keep her hands out of the way. He quickly responded “ that Chic has a beard†Larry is rolling and outta nowhere, comes my inner red neck self going “ C’mon Laaaaaaaar, “ Guess it was kinda funny. I know I ended up at the ATM and pulled 500 bucks out, so either I was losing bad, or what I don’t know. Guess when I’m drunk, I start referring to myself in the third person and every throw I’m hollering “ Sticky down.. Sticky drunk.. Sticky got *uck allâ€. I think I got the dice and made everyone a few bucks and it’s time to roll out of LVC. I am now about to derail. Mikey, larry and I are outside waiting at the valet. I was fine when we stepped out, but as soon as my ass hit the bench, I was on the grain train with the emergency brake on. Get in the truck and I’m done. I held it together the drive back to flamingo to drop off Larry. Barely keeping it together. I couldn’t look up. As long as I had my head down and didn’t see the neon, I was lucky. We drop off Larry and end up back at NYNY. Some how I made my way to the room and I was done. Sticky got wasted!.. :drunk:

    Monday, last day. I somehow managed to get up and pack and checked out. Mikey and I decide to spend my last 4 hours in vegas back at GVR. We head to the Original pancake house for some much needed breakfast. WOW! I had 2 eggs over easy, hashbrowns, toast and coffee and it was awesome. Killer hashbrowns there!. While sitting there, a lady comes over and gives us an extra buy one, get one free coupon she had. Mikey puts it on the table, I pick it up and go “ I ‘ll take care of this “ and we cracked up. I was going to buy breakfast anyway, but that was kinda funny. We leave OPH and hit the pai gow one last time. It was a nice game. 100 dollar buy in, I did sink down to my last 15, bet it all and then I started winning. Climbed back up to about 90 and it’s time to go. I did win there though. It was cool when I was out of cigarettes and Mikey said he could get some comped. Long story short, there was a mix up and he comes back with 6 packs free!!** Ooops, forgot to mention this. Close to the last hand for us, cards come out. Mikey screams in excitement then lets out " DAMN #)$%()(#$)(%%()#@.. He almost got dealt a 7 card straight flush for a nice $8000.00. What did he need? the 10 of hearts. What did sticky have? the 10 of hearts. DAMN!! sorry bout that. We check out the sports book there, and it’s time to head over the the airport. We say our goodbyes and check in and security go without a hitch. I have an hour and half to kill so I put a 20 in a WOF progressive and cash out for 80!.. I then head over to the gate only to find we’re delayed about half and hour so I spot a nickel slot called “ Dam Lumberjack Beavers†How could I not play that.. 10 in, cash out for 33 so I get on the plane a winner and I’m home exactly on time and in bed by 1:00am.

    It was a great trip. I actually gambled and have become a pai gow freak like Angy said. Gotta love sitting at a table drunk, getting dealt pai gow over and over and calling out “ Sticky got *uck allâ€

    I had fun seeing everyone again and meeting some new faces. I didn’t take in all the NSF fun with the gang, but still had a fantastic time! I’d say I had a winning trip but can’t recall all the details. MM4 is looking pretty good so, can’t wait..

    That’s my story of NSF..I’d say I lived up to the name..

    Sticky
    ps.. Anyone know how to make my pics show and not link?

    *** damn.. Just checked my email and got an offer from Mirage for some more free nights in December and Jan. Can sticky hold out til March? We'll see :D

    I've seen it before. Anybody who says Pai Gow is a break even game has never seen that guy play it. I don't know what it is, bro, but you get no love in chinatown.

    Sticky done good. More great stories. Glad you guys made it to the card "room" at the Plaza. Patti's an early favorite for the MM4 tourney.

    Although, there's that word again...

    Hey Sticky

    Great trip report! Loved seeing you again, and you kept my ass laughin' all weekend. What a great time. Can't wait till March.

    And it was cool to have a partner there at the Pai Gow table this time, too.

    STICKY DRUNK! STICKY DOWN! STICKY OUT!

    Good times.

    Mikey

    I seem to recall someone taking several drinks from my football cup after finishing her yard long :ssst:

    Great meeting you Sticky, and thanks for the tips on Pai Gow at the LV Club. I may not be a Pai Gow freak, but that was some great fun. Looking forward to March :thumbsup:

    Sticky...what a GREAT read:) Sounds like you all had a great time yet still kind of did your own thing. Love to meet some T2Vers someday. Man.. we just don't (read "can't") drink like that (anymore) and that combined w/ the lack of sleep would kill this old guy after one night...lol We could hang for a few hours... and then I'm sure catch major shit for heading to bed at midnight.:poke:

    Again...excellent report, really sounds like the time you and Mikey spent at GVR was some of the best. ~ Dino

    Purists need not get too riled. That was the only casualty on the bus... the driver actually said we were the best group he'd ever had. How scary is that?

    Yeah, there's nothing like 1/10th of one eye on traffic and 9/10ths of same eye and 10/10ths of the other eye on the Canadian bacon a few feet behind him.

    While the Canadian bacon referal was funny, I would like to just re-claim some dignity and say, It's all prime rib baby! :woot:

    Yep, there was some shakin' of the bacon on that trip...

    Seriously, a limo is cool, but a Party Bus, well, that just has T2V written all over it...

    Mikey

    PS.. I'm reminded of the Subway commercial that has been playing constantly on ESPN. That's PRIME RIB--the KING of meats!
