    Last trip in June was in the middle of six days and decided one morning around 10 it was a good time to find the best line for my buddy's Tennessee National Championship wager...

    Start in Gold Coast and drink a beer, catch the shuttle to Orleans and drink a beer,, shuttle to Palms and drink a beer,, the Rio and drink a beer. Taxi to MGM and drink a beer then Trop, NYNY, Stratosphere drinking a brew in each one,, it's about 4 pm by now and I'm lit like a Christmas tree but determined to find the best line availabe so taxi down to Fremont and hit the Cal(where I bought a 24oz Corona for $3 in gift shop - - - my go to gift shop BTW)) so Im thinking "well I'm close to 777" so slug the Corona whilst stumbling to MSS(no sportsbook but needed a high roller) and grab a appetizer while enjoying two of said brews.. Leave there and hit back side of Binions then GN, Fremont until finally striking gold at The D!! 18-1! Hallelujah! Hike down to the longest bar in Nevada and drink a beer with celebratory shot of 1800 tequila....my friends that is how I shop a line..14 casinos 15 beers and about $100 light in the wallet

    vegasinsider.com is a step saver which could mean more logical sit down drinks in the room. Of course the chase is sometimes more exhilarating than the conquest.
    Sports is great take either side and bet.....you had ur choice first thing ..... what could go wrong ?
