    Day 1, Tues. 9/6: The Welcome Mat Rolled Up at Monte Carlo



    Once again, going back to Vegas! 15th trip overall and 13th in the past 5 years with my g/f!! And her 5th Birthday trip in the last 6 years!! From now on I'll refer to her as M. Outbound flight for us was on Frontier from STL and no major issues. During slow times, I ended up hitting a straight flush playing practice Double STP. Nothing too eventful but foreshadows the trip.

    The day of our trip, we decide to sign up for Thrifty's club last minute to “skip the line”. That probably created a longer wait because they didn't have our info connected. Once that was straightened out, the dude to check us out at the gate was more interested with playing on his phone than helping us!



    Soon after we move over to the Monte Carlo to check in. Drive the car into the parking garage and grab our parking ticket. Were told to hook it up to our reservation at the front desk, which we tried to do. The front desk, employee, as we would eventually learn, did not do so!

    Pics of room. Quiet and great views of NYNY and T-Mobile Arena!

    To use some of M's dad food credit, we tried 800 degree pizza, but were hesitant to order pizzas individually. Probably was a good idea, because I was the one who liked it the most. But these pizzas are definitely individual size, so keep that in mind!



    As this point we split up as I need to go to the room, I tell them I would meet them at NYNY. But I was so slow at it, they moved on to a souvenir store across the street. I decide to do a bartop check, and when I do...I think I am on the 25c level instead of the $5 level. OOPS!!! Fortunately I hit this for a $50 profit!!

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Do more checks and play other games at NYNY. Found old Bally units that play “Let It Ride” for as cheap as 25c. Broke even on that. And lost a few bucks on an old slot machine I like “Ring Quest”. NYNY is definitely in the past with their slots...



    [​IMG]



    Since we barely ate, we decide to get another meal at somewhere easy like McDonalds. I tell M to park at the Mirage garage because I still hoped to meet @Kimsa70 at Bellagio. MGM hotel guests have free reign of parking at any MGM property if they pay the fee...and it works! Did it work?...hell no! So we in and out of the Mirage (free under an hour) and move to the “Viva Vegas” McDonalds near Slots-A-Fun. It's a nice McDonalds, but even at 10pm on a weekday deals with a good percentage of the “down and out”. :(

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    By this time, I get the word from Kimsa that she's beat, and has an 8am flight out. However, considering the chaos we were having, I probably couldn't make it anyway either. I tried to meet up with a good number of ppl this trip, but our relative chaos prevented a lot of them, unfortunately.



    Food was decent, get back to Monte Carlo garage, and of course the pass still doesn't work. They tell us to go to the front desk again. This time a lady that could care less says she hooked the parking to M's key only because the rest of us weren't with her in line. I guess she would have to scan all the other keys otherwise.



    By the time this was all said and done, it was after 11p and everyone was losing and fed up, except me of course. But after some internal debate, I thought it was best to call it early because I was sober, a $50 winner, and had 6 more nights to go!



    But before bed, see these odd back to back quads for public display. Aces with a Ten and Tens with an Ace!

    [​IMG]

    Day 2, Wed. 9/7: Happy Birthday M!!! Aria Buffet and a Great Tender Dinner!



    Wake up to Didier Synder, M was reasonably tolerable to this.

    [​IMG]



    We run off to the MC pool in the morning, which was much calmer and enjoyable than we expected. The pace of the lazy river was faster than usual and we probably did ten laps.



    Views of the pool from the Aria Tram

    [​IMG]



    Lunch was at Aria buffet via myVegas. And while redeeming the award, some one else occupied Row 802.

    [​IMG]



    Another food pic failure, but I got these:

    [​IMG]



    Then a Joe IPA (6.9%; 4 sips) from the Gem Bar. That bartender was more into helping others at VP than I've seen in a long time.

    [​IMG]



    Row 802 opens up. Game of choice 8/6 Boner Deluxe (98.99%). One quick multiplier hit.

    [​IMG]

    Happy Birthday, M!

    [​IMG]



    Golden Road's Get Up Offa That Brown from the Sports Bar from dreaded White Beard (5.5%; 3.75 sips)

    [​IMG]



    We run off to Cosmo's Pool for the afternoon while her parents stay at Monte Carlo.

    [​IMG]



    This will have to do because I forgot to get to the habitat!!

    [​IMG]



    They added a lot more loungers since February.

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    A tip for the Vegas Players...

    [​IMG]



    For dinner, we go to Tender. Of course the parking pass fails again at Luxor. M gets $10 freeplay for her Birthday Wheel Spin. Dinner was great. One of the best myVegas rewards left.



    My steak...I suck at remembering doing food porn. And yes I know it's well-done. M wanted to split...lol

    [​IMG]



    Also a free crème brulee dessert for her birthday!

    [​IMG]



    The biggest disappointment was the beer I had, Dogfish Head 60 min. It was probably dated.



    Playing off her free play on Noah's Ark

    [​IMG]



    Now run to Gold Coast for an hour so her parents could take advantage of “Young at Heart” day, and we did a few coupons (thanks for the extras @da1chifan !) Unfortunately, that was personally a good loss for me. It doesn't help that the Gold Coast rules were different than what I was used to. You were supposed to present the coupon before playing $10 coin-in. At the Orleans, it doesn't matter. Oops. Also lost my $10 MP after doubling down for $20 more, oops.



    Got a Dale's Pale Ale. Tap meh. (6.5%; 3.5 sips)

    [​IMG]



    Gamble it up a bit for the best bartop I would stumble across all trip, 9/6 JoB (99.54%)

    [​IMG]



    Also decide to screw around a bit at 2c 6/5 Bonus Ultimate X (~98%) and Dream Card (~97%)

    [​IMG]



    First 4 to a Royal misses and first quad hit on 2c Dream Card...ugh

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Take a relative beating at Gold Coast. Down $50?



    Get back to MC, parking still not working right. they are all worn out again. At the time, I had been chatting with @Riders to meet up during his impromptu trip. I head over to Cosmo. Get there and start playing 6/5 Super DDB (97.69%) at the Sportsbook bar before asking him where he exactly is. Works out well for me and helps rebound from the rest of the day.



    Start with a Firestone Walker 805 Blonde, better than I expect (4.7%, 4 sips)

    [​IMG]



    Dealt Quad! Welcome to the Cosmopolitian indeed!
    [​IMG]



    Have a nice chat over a wide variety of topics. Unfortunately, neither of us could hit anything good while chatting. Riders particularly missed a lot of good draws. He was holding the kicker a lot at TDB while next to me. I did get to try this great beer though, Tenaya Creek Hauling Oats (5.7%; 4.25 sips).

    [​IMG]



    And I had an encore of Hauling Oats plus a Sculpin (7%; 4.25 sips) thanks to gifted drink tickets. I failed to earn any tickets on my own that night. Riders got one about every 20 minutes. I tried the “spritzfaced” at the Chandelier from my one comped drink from my initial $20 buy-in, which evaporated. It could have been better..I would have been pissed if I paid $16+tip (3.25 sips).

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    I kept poking at the machine for water...their bartenders could only give one comped water out at a time as well...ugh. But at least he didn't ask for a drink ticket! By the end, the Cosmo got their way and my early quad got eaten and I lost $20 there. Just what they wanted, doh! Stumble Back to the MC, but not before a small $4 win at BeeeJay Memorial Row. ;)



    What a tease though...

    [​IMG]





    ______________________________________________________________



    Day 3, Thurs. 9/8: Things Finally Get Straightened Out. A Downtown Victory and MGM Trolling a Hooker!



    While I was lollygagging in the room, they all go to the Front Desk to complain about the parking again. And finally they found an employee and manager (A “Suit” as M's Dad calls them) that would break. Waived parking and resort fees. Of course when that happened the cards still had issues since the slate was wiped clean. Also had issues redeeming our free play at the M Life desk because the reservation wasn't hooked together right. But fortunately, that was able to be fixed over the phone with the front desk.



    By all this delay though, it was basically time to drive to the Mirage buffet. Of course the parking ticket doesn't work, but that's not a shock because parking was wiped clean earlier. But at least we half expected this to happen this time.



    Pic of the lobby aquarium

    [​IMG]



    Mirage buffet was pretty good. And they stepped up their craft game since our last visit a couple of years ago. The guest tap at the moment was Left Hand Hard Wired Nitro (6%; 4.25 sips). Much better “Porta Coffee”, as the bartender first described it, than expected.

    [​IMG]



    We play at Mirage for awhile. I play a little 3 Way Action Poker (you can only play this in Vegas), and get a couple of beers as Lobby Bar. Newcastle (4.7%; 3 sips) and Goose IPA (5.8%; 3.25 sips). I pay for them...meh. We were there for over an hour gambling. I should have ran to TAG at that point.



    Now we run to Cosmo for more pool time for us. M hoped her dad would join us. But he was more interested in gambling this trip, so we left them down in the casino to play. After that, we move back to the room to prepare going downtown.



    Initially I wrote off going downtown (and I wrote off a lot of plans overall this trip, fwiw) because the only one who really gives a shit about downtown is me. However, about 2 days before our trip began, M's Dad was told by his nephew that his daughter was a “host” at Main St. Station and would hook him up with a dinner, so now he wants to go downtown.



    So now we go, but not before a visit to the north outlet mall first.

    [​IMG]



    We get to MSS close to 9. I immediately watch the tail end of the NFL opener with a peanut $5 moneyline bet on the Broncos. The Panthers kicker choking bails me out.



    That's a winner!

    [​IMG]



    I then rejoin the party, and mostly listen to them chatting to a 21-year old employee about family crap I could care less about. She also comes off as dumb to me. I even text M things like this while she chats away to M's parents like the following: “I don't like her.” And then after we break off, I text M “She didn't give him (M's dad...a Boyd Sapphire) shit, did she?”. That was true as well. Pretty sure the “host's” dad lied about her power...host my ass!!! Pretty sure she's just a players' club attendant.



    But nevertheless, we were hungry, and we try MSS's 777 Grill for dinner using M's dads points since the “host” couldn't help us out... Everyone else gets a burger, and seems to like it. I get a BBQ chicken sandwich instead. Guess I made a wrong choice, pretty dry. Also get a Carlsbad IPA (7.8%; 3.25 sips). I had to add ice to finish the 23 oz. Beer. Too many off flavors when it was warmer. Service was terribly slow too. It would have to be free for me to go back.

    [​IMG]



    M's parents want to gamble for awhile. I want to run to do some coupons. Ask M to come with me, but she balks. So I go out on my own.



    First I hit the Cal to check the new Holo Holo bar. Paytables meh, but they have some craft beer compable unlike Filament at Fremont. I note that they offer Ninkasi Total Domination IPA, so I was excited because I've struggled to find it for “free” in Vegas. But their continuously lighted, water cooled display made this particular beer skunk city (7%; no rating due to terrible housing conditions). When a label looks this wet, it's going to be disappointing.

    [​IMG]



    This was also disappointing.

    [​IMG]



    Still was up $12.50 there though thanks to this at 97.68% Double Bonus Deuces

    [​IMG]



    M and her mom were playing VP at MSS and not doing badly either!

    [​IMG]



    And 2 quads within four minutes for M's mom!

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Now I went to Downtown Grand for the start of my coupon hunt with a $10 MP. Get there. Lose it after an initial push.



    Now belly up to the bar thanks to info about Joseph James beers now being there on tap. First try their Hop Box on tap (8.2%; 4.25 sips). Great on tap!



    Forgot to take a pic of the beer full...lol

    [​IMG]



    As for VP, I do a quick math check, and determine that 8/5 DDB with a $900 AWAK (>99%) is better than 8/6 Boner Deluxe (98.49%). Early on, the machine wasn't too kind, and ate the first $20 fairly quickly. I could have decided to quit and moved on with the coupons. But I sorta wanted to try the “I'm out Stout”, so I reload.



    So glad I did...

    [​IMG]



    Where's the kicker though?!?! Nevertheless, a gambling first for me surprisingly. A progressive in any form! $214, I'll take it!



    The “I'm Out Stout” was well worth it also (9.3%; 4.5 sips).

    [​IMG]



    By the time I'm done, the couponing window is over with closed players' clubs, but I don't mind being a $180 winner at the bar!

    [​IMG]



    Get back to MC close to 1am. Again, they are fading, but I want to hit up MGM a bit, so I do.



    But first burn off myVegas freeplay at MC...got $22 of $25, not terrible.

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    And the 6/5 BP progressive on the floor got up to $1900, approaching 99%. This guy wrongly holding 3 to a flush betting 2 won't win it though!

    [​IMG]



    Walk to MGM. Walk in, take a deep breath, expecting their signature smell. Nope. No more expected smell. Disappointing. See the club girls at Hakkasan. Then work my way into the casino. Many other club/hooker types floating around.

    [​IMG]



    Play at Whiskey Down for awhile because open seat, and they will comp Dogfish Head 60 min (6%; 4 sips). This tasted better because it was fresher, and settled for 6/5 Bonus (96.87%) thanks to downgrades. Get a refill, but basically pay for the beer.

    [​IMG]



    You can play video BJ with terrible rules for up to $100 a credit here!

    [​IMG]



    Drag the beer to the 7/5 Bonus Quick Quads (98.29%) for nickels. To slow things down, I'm playing on my phone. Not long after, a pretty blonde girl comes up to me and asks me if I'm “sexting”. I say no. And then she asks what my hat is about. I say it's a Quebec Nordiques hat. She asks me if I'm from there. I say no, but I'm from where the beer I'm currently drinking (Budweiser) is made.



    She proceeds to name off random states. Then I hint to her its in the Midwest. Then she proceeds to name most Midwest states that aren't the correct answer (Missouri). Eventually, I give her the answer. She then progresses to things like “why are you here?” Answer: “My g/f's Birthday”. “Where is she?” “In Bed.” “Can you get us a room?” “I don't think that's a good idea.” I feel a little guilty for possibly leading her on, she seemed nice at least. As we begin to reach a clear impasse, I make the comment, “I hope you find a guy that makes more money than I do.” She downplays looking for people like that and then leaves.



    Go back to playing Quick Quads and get my first Quick Quad in Vegas in over 2.5 years! Yes, it's been that long! :(

    [​IMG]



    Wished you were here @jpw711 !

    [​IMG]



    Lobby Bar still packed at 3:45am!!

    [​IMG]



    Did find the girl that gave me attention working on another group of guys, faces blurred off.

    [​IMG]



    Wrapped up the night from there

    ______________________________________________________________



    Day 4, Fri. 9/9: Cheap Bastardism: Switch Hotel and Car with Fast Food Meals



    Get up. Prep to leave Monte Carlo.. And by some way I really can't figure out...M's Dad made Pearl this trip! So unless parking rules change...we can use the garage with him until Sept. of next year! Then a buy one get one coupon at the Original Chicken Tender for lunch. Damn this stuff is awesome.

    [​IMG]



    Another Monte Carlo VP fail.

    [​IMG]



    Now we have to move hotels to the Rio since M's dad gets it free for the weekend except for the dreaded resort fees. Anything on the Strip would have been $100 more.



    M's parents were impressed with the size of the room.



    Good view too.

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Since we had a car for the weekend, thought no big whoop about the Rio. But the big whoop was we also were switching cars thanks to the Enterprise “weekend special”. Our “special” was a Chevy Cruze. The take-home for the weekend. Never buy this car! To gain extra economy, the engine and a/c partially shuts off when your stopped creating a choke-like pickup when you let off the brake (great for the Vegas strip!)



    [​IMG]



    Then we return the car we wish we could have all week (Hyundai Elantra) back to McCarran. Then hit up the South Outlet Mall, and I'm sorta fighting off a hangover.



    Then head out toward Green Valley.



    Go to Kohl's (my favorite store ever! ;)) to keep M happy. Finally back to a place with “free beer”, Green Valley Ranch. Used Groupon to have Fatburger for dinner. Also down 3 Sierra Nevadas (5.6%; 4 sips) in hope of calming the headache. Meh, not as much as I hoped. Fatburger was great. My results at GVR for my beers not so much, -$20. Fail on food porn again!



    Fatburger poster

    [​IMG]



    On the way back from GVR, the headache was still there and bother to ask M to give me some Advil. Park at Flamingo and they are heading toward the gift shop, and all of a sudden, I gotta piss bad. So I tell them I'm heading to the bathroom, and the only one I can find is near Bugsy's Cabaret.



    At that point, I tell myself I'm half way to TAG and might as well go the rest of the way. I inform M of this via text. She was not pleased.



    But ahhhh...I'm finally at my second home!!!

    [​IMG]



    See my favorite bartender, Stan, who now has a shaved head and a full beard instead of a goatee, and say hello. Start drinking and playing 7/5 Triple Bonus Plus (97.67%) toward the 1000th overall check-in on my Untappd app.



    But who do I run into first degenerately playing the Ultimate X machines at TAG? @Gaggles ! We have a nice chat along with his g/f and also watching him play away at the game helps me slow down my roll a lot. ;) Watching him pull an 8X quad Kings for $250 was quite the exciting hit as well! But not surprisingly, his party was pushing him to move on to other things after awhile, but I could tell he didn't want to leave that machine! Haha Good seeing you again buddy!



    Here are some of the beers I had to push to 1000 check-ins. About 43% of them being unique beers.



    998: Mother Earth Boo Koo IPA 6.5%; 4 sips. Gaggles itchy trigger finger in the corner. Haha

    [​IMG]



    999: The Dudes' Double Trunk DIPA 9.4%; 3.75 sips

    [​IMG]



    1000th checkin Green Flash Tangerine Soul Style IPA 6.5%; 4.5 sips

    [​IMG]



    I'm getting toasty and I tried to slam a quad out of this and accidently held the fifth card along right before hitting the deal/draw button...shit!

    [​IMG]



    But I didn't stop there!



    Santa Fe Java Imperial Stout (8%; 4.25 sips)

    [​IMG]



    20 minutes later...first blood at TAG!

    [​IMG]



    And to cap off there, Brooklyn Defender IPA (6.7%; 3.75 sips)

    [​IMG]



    Now I'm feeling really toasty. While apparently M and her parents were going through hell at the Margaritaville store. Apparently, M's dad wanted a shirt and wanted to use his TR credits to pay for it. Well, the register accidentally double charged him. Well, apparently, rectifying this was a major pain in the ass. And when they went to the TR desk, a manager told him that it wasn't a big deal that he got charged twice... WTF??? So they were all pissed because it couldn't be resolved that night. No shirt, was double charged, and they were furious.



    The infamous shirt

    [​IMG]



    End up going back to the Rio.



    Show in the Sky, RIP

    [​IMG]



    Kiss mini golf car

    [​IMG]



    They go get some Smashburger and play for a bit. Eventually I break off and start playing some 8/5 JoB w/Double STP at Shutters (97.79%). The bartender, Dan, was working his ass off when it was busy. It was nice to see. I began to start ordering Lagunitas IPA (6.2%; 4 sips) and water. I did alright there.

    [​IMG]



    Wish I would have improved here though!

    [​IMG]



    M saw a guy who filled the board with bonus symbols on “China Shores” for the maximum 450 free games! Too bad it wasn't her!

    [​IMG]





    After Dan gave me an encore without me really asking for it...shit, I was really feeling it. I move away from the bar to the penny Spin Poker Deluxe machines with 6/5 Super DDB (97.69%). Play for awhile. But I start to feel all that beer...about 430 am. I get a tap on the shoulder for the first time ever. I briefly passed out in front of the Spin Poker game. I was betting 25c per spin, zzzzz. Once that happened, I said, “I guess I should go to bed.” He asked me if I was staying there. I immediately answer, “Yep, Room 1201 Ipanema Tower.” I was let go after that. Semi-embarrassed and not telling the rest of the crew about that. I slink into bed.

    How was I able to survive Part 2? ;)

    Good first read! I was following your beer adventures on Untappd - seems like you hit TAG pretty hard this trip.

    Really enjoying your report! Love the pictures and the adventures. I find your knowledge and stamina to ingest the multitudes of different brews simply amazing!
    I didn't know there was more to life than just Bud lite, Coors lite, Heineken, and Corona!;):beer:
