    My Trip Report

    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.

    Yeah the rain has been messy there. Once you get away from the gate be prepared to sit on the Tarmac a bit waiting in line.

    Oh yeah - I feel good. I have a feeling that the All will be hit.

    Touch base with you once I get settled or possibly tomorrow AM as I will be down that way

    You can turn it - keep a winning attitude!

    The pit boss was making fun of me as I was almost doing a Stuart Smally as I would talk my way through two bad hands against a dealer face card trying to draw winning hands out of them.

    Ouch! But you are only down 12% of your bank roll, so there is no need to panic and throw the "All In, Hail Mary pass" yet....

    Good luck, and I look forward to your updates.

    Good luck Voller. Speaking of how ass tastes, my buddies are dragging me to the Double Down saloon next trip to try their famous ass juice. I'm told it's not that bad, which of course is not a ringing endorsement. I only mention it in case your crew is looking for that little something different to try. I've heard it's pretty much a hole in the wall, but it seemed on topic to your first post.
