As a poker player, I am not a fan of downtown. I prefer playing on the strip rather than playing with all the local rocks downtown. We do always go to Freemont at least once though. I realized I had never been in Binion's before. We went in and hit a few slots and wandered back to the BJ tables in the back. We found a $3 table and our party of 4 grabbed it and camped out. The pit boss, Henry, came over and greeted us and offered to get us set up with players cards, which we did. He spent quite a bit of time with our table, talking, joking, helping with difficult decisions, and giving us tips on how to maximize our downtown experience. We walked in with some of those large drink containers, and he suggested we get the comped drinks and pour them into ours to keep them full. We were going to do that anyway, but it was refreshing to not have to hide it. The waitresses suggested that we order our drinks as shots without any ice or mixers because we would get more liquor and not water the drinks down as much. Nice touch. While filling one of my drinks, I dropped a piece of ice in the shoe and quickly grabbed it out. I thought for sure we would be ejected for that, but Henry politely came over and told the dealer to calm down while he wiped out the shoe. I profusely apologized, and all he was concerned with was that we were having a good time. We stayed at that table for 6 hours. Henry even offered to hold our table for us so we could all go take pictures with the million dollars on display. We all walked out of there drunk off our asses with a little more money than we bought in for. This was by far the best blackjack experience I have ever had. They really made us feel welcome and appreciated and I will definitely be going back to Binion's again.
