    My Trip Report

    I don't leave for another 26 hours, but getting my ducks in a row.

    This is the "last" of trips for my 60th birthday. Three of my lifelong friends will be accompanying me.
    This is a preview . . . .

    On the agenda are:

    Silver Striker meeting
    $300 Silver Strike distribution
    Silver Strike trading session
    Jinju Chocolates
    Wynn Rolex event
    Knife cut noodles at Beijing Noodle No. 9
    Dinner at Gordon Ramsay Steak
    Breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi
    High Roller

    Many pictures will be taken, and I'm gonna practice posting them using Tapatalk so they're not "shrunken".

    I went rib cap. I want to try Wellington next.

    I though of you when I got a $10 strike at El Co this last trip on free play. This time I turned it in.

    Try the pork belly as an appetizer, sounds horrible but it is simply awesome.......in my opinion it blows away the beef wellington!

    I'm relieved. From the title of the thread, I thought you might be dying. :)

    I'm Chinese-American. Pork Belly is a "staple". Along with chicken feet, duck head, thousand year old egg, and salted fish.

    Do you have any suggestions at Jinju chocolates? I remember you've mentioned them before.

    I'm headed downtown a week from tonight.

    Thanks.

    I will be heading there this afternoon. To tell you the truth, I'm not really a "chocolate person". I just like Jin's product for "designer chocolates".

    Jaidee1 likes the Elviis bar (chocolate/peanut butter). I usually buy the boxed sets as casino host gifts. They have a variety of flavors. All very good.

    If you are using a droid and want bigger pictures it is best to choose the left image option and not the paper clip attachment option.

    Because I said 20+ years ago that Apple would never get a dime of my money.

    Although I have purchased iPhones and iPads for my son, I will NEVER use any of their products.
