Well, on my bank trip yesterday, they counted up all my random cash I had leftover from this week's trip. Turned out I was down $8!!!!!!!!!!!! These figures include the great air fare I had on Allegiant, $65 out & $65 back! And all of my meals! What a winner! Stayed at the Fremont downtown, comped for the 3 nights. Played slots only & had my best luck on the old 3 reels Red, White, Blue! Unbelievable. Some observations from the Downtown area: ***Those street performers are all set up in a line ... not in the way, can easily ignore them & head to my next casino. Nice! I guess the rule is they have to be out so many feet? Works for me! ***The new Filament bar is empty. I counted 6 people at the most seated there. It is pretty but I think they need to do some major rearranging. The old bar close to the table games was as crowded as ever! My thought is... move the tables! Of course, things might look different on a weekend. I saw it all on Tues. & Wed. nights. Also, I was thirsty for that $1.99 margarita. Turned out it was only available at the old bar. Hmmm?? ***The prime rib dinner at Magnolias.... medium rare... was just great. Golden Nugget buffet for breakfast with it's yummy bread pudding, just could not stay away. We also ate the comped seafood night at the Paradise buffet at the Fremont. They had very good peel & eat shrimp. Nothing to complain about on the food anywhere! ***Why is it so HOT on the Player's Club side at the 4 Queens??? It was like there was no AC at all in that 1/2 of the building. Luckily, my red, white & blue machines were on the cool side! *** We used the WAX bus both ways to & from the airport. Why anyone would fuss about it is beyond me. It's one of the best additions to downtown in all of the time I've been going there! $2 ... what a deal. No weirdos in sight, just travelers and a few folks going to & from work. The price is certainly right! ***Played Bingo at the Plaza. My friend won $240! I guess we will try that again! We went to the 1pm session, not as crowded, and used the electronic machines. Fun, fun! The entire trip went off without a hitch. Sadly, none scheduled until spring for me.
