    My Trip Report

    Hi Everybody. So I went back and forth about posting on this trip. Normally I do a live report, but wasn't sure if I'd do it this time. Well my enthusiasm for posting live quickly left after I started to get smacked around by Lady Luck. But now that it's over I'll post what happened with a few pics I took.

    My birthday was Thursday the 7th and went to the Beanery for a few beers with some chums. My head hit the pillow about 10pm planning to leave about 6. Well I was wide awake at 4 so decided to drive across the desert.

    I was so early I thought I'd stop at M Resort as I remember Firstkill talking about the place. I got there and signed up for a player's card. Place was a morgue. Quickly dropped 350 at craps and then decided to use my $5 in free play. $200 later I decided Firstkill is a crack pot and left. Jk fk.

    Drove to NYNY and of course my room wasn't ready so I slotted around the floor and then had lunch. At this point I'm down about $1,500 and not in the best of moods.. Why oh why do I go to Vegas?

    So after a shower and a little cat nap I head down to the sports book for baseball bets. I throw a little over 600 down on straight bets and parlays and all of a sudden my wallet is a couple grand in the hole. My luck has to turn right?

    Back to my old favorite Walking Dead machine. I dropped $600 in the bastard this morning without even getting a bonus!!! Bam!!! Down 200 more. Shit. On to Buffalo. Down 300. A bit of wizard of oz by mlife desk finally produces 150 profit. And since I'm right there activate my $600 free play. Still kinda pissed so head to craps table.

    I buy in for $400. First shooter goes 10-15 mins. Second shooter goes 10-15 mins. Third shooter point five seven. Still, I'm looking ok and Birthday Boy has the dice. 20 minutes later after hitting the all talk and being the 6 away from ALL my rack looks like this.

    We share the same first name, same birthday, and same main stay casino, NYNY. After 60+ stays at NYNY and 20 over birthdays, my recommendation is to take that win and....oh wait, this is not live....Go get 'Em! You can do what I have not been able to accomplish :)

    So we eat at Il Fornaio. I've been sucking beers for few hours and Tom is running late so I order a white pizza with chicken.

    It was nice. Very thin.
    Gino, the chef, was going to make me this dish I love but wasn't on the menu, but he was going to rock in rio with his Mrs and Tom was still not there. I just ordered two of them and a salad.

    It was awesome. Tom finally showed and I got the candle and song from staff(which I hate). So that food plus 3 large Chiantis and I ask for the bill and Gino took care of it . How awesome is that?

    Go collect my sports bets making 130 and head to hi limit lounge for a cigar. So the beer and wine and cigar all swirling through me I feel friggin invincible. I'm gonna make that last craps session look like amateur hour!!! Down a grand. Fucking cigar. Off to bed knowing I'm up having been way down. Great feeling.

    So I woke up mid-morning went down to the Sportsbook to grab the MLB sheet to study over breakfast at America. The food there is adequate, but I like to sit at the bar and come up with a plan while I eat.

    I invested just under 700 at the book and hit the Walking Dead machine. So a quick 200 down chasing zombies and it feels like I'm down a grand. After the WD I realize something. I'll play a machine and always put 100 in to start. Every so often you hit a bonus on an early spin. So far this trip I haven't hit a bonus without putting at least 200 in. Decide to switch it up and drop 300 playing double deck BJ. I need a win so hit center bar to play half my FP. After a couple beers I turn 300 into 225. I guess you could look at it as a loss, but it's a free couple Hundo to me. Time for a nap.

    The first time I stepped into Cosmo it was about 9am on a weekday. Even the mythical $5 craps existed then. We wrote them off after that until I learned about the loss rebate (RIP). Glad we took that rebate!

    Expecting M resort to have life around 9 am on a Friday is asking a lot too. You might like the place better at a more peak gaming time. As a craft beer snob, I have to love the place. 96 beers on tap!

    Good report so far!
