Sitting in the Houston airport drinking a Starbucks coffee that was supposed to be a Blonde Roast, but tastes like ass nuked in a microwave. (No, I don't know what ass really tastes like). This is my first trip report, live or otherwise so please be gentle. Or the opposite of Adrian Peterson. Too soon? Headed out to Mecca for a little R and R with 6 buddies all staying at the Cosmo. My host graciously offered up a wrap-around but with 7 guys I wanted to maximize food and cabana comps. I'm a BJ/Craps/sports book player with a bankroll of about 25k. I enjoy long walks on the beach, candlelit dinner....oh sorry got confused which board I was on. I used to make it out twice a year from Tennessee, but 3 kids under 5 and a brand new house (DW had to have a nice machine, not just any ice machine, but a pellet ice machine "like Sonic") has made it more like 1 trip a year. So here is the rough itinerary: Thurs: Get up, Gamble, drink, drink while gambling, gamble, eat, sleep Friday: Repeat day 1 Saturday Same only, gamble more on 18-22 year old barbarians hitting each other Sunday Recovery day at the Blvd pool cabana where we gamble on 22-40 year old barbarians hitting each other while bemoaning our dungeon and dragons like team of Fantasy Football teams shitting the bed. Eats: reservations at Scarpetta, STK, and Blue Ribbon Goals: no one arrested Thanks for reading and I will update frequently with stats. I'm a numbers guy and really enjoy comp valuation discussions.
