    You see, it wasn't very good because it was in the shadows. I had mine in the light of the casino, and I really loved it.

    We took a little nap- Well the snore meister who swears he never sleeps had at least 2 hours and I think I dozed for about 15 minutes. It felt good to take deep breaths and not feel so winded. We then Ubered over to the Rio to play 2 rounds of Kiss Monster Mini Golf. It was too stuffy and hot to play both rounds. I bought a Travel zoo voucher for a good deal. I have 2 free passes left I’ll have to check the expiration date - but if any one wants 2 rounds of golf for 1 person or 1 round for 2 people let me know I’ll mail them too you.

    I may not be able to get back to you or mail them until next week.

    After Golf we were going to eat at Hash House at the Rio but they currently are not open for dinner. I we ate at Guy Fieri’s. It was pretty good. Sorry no pics. We split the Fundido- I really liked it but he could have left off the beans. Then we split pork verde enchiladas with cilantro rice. Pretty good-I usually don’t like Baja/California Mexican food. And I had a Frozen Mango Margarita that was awesome.

    We Ubered back to PlanetHo and I hit VP again. The pay tables suck. 7/5 everywhere I looked. I bit the bullet and just picked one. I never won big but managed to double a $20 buy in twice and keep my head above water. We both jumped around on slots. I found a newer Gold fish and won about $70 - and then cashed out.

    I wasted too much of my bankroll in Tahoe. Now I’m like a Grad student with no Trust fund to rely on.

    Hope the southern Nevada leg of your trip is better for you... sorry you seemed so disappointed with Tahoe.

    Oh gosh no it was gorgeous— My husband wanted to see more snow- I am glad the weather cooperated. Harvey’s was very nice. I thought about you the one day when we circled the Lake -how lucky you were to live there. I’ve never had a problem with altitude but this was the first time I flew directly into it.

    The positives of Tahoe- Very few kids meandering the casino, no time shares, drink service was great, and the staff was so nice. I told my husband if we go back we are going to have to take an extended vacation & drive and get acclimated.

    Nice report so far!

    Unfortunately 7/5 Jacks (96.15%) is the best you'll find at CET for quarters. Just like the suggestions earlier, 6/5 Bonus (96.87% ( would be a better choice, as long as 2 pair pays 10 coins with max bet.

    Well...if you're at Planet Hollywood you could play 1 line on the quarter 100 play machine betting 5 coins a line in the high limit room. That game is 9/5 JoB (98.45%). But be careful not to hit the max bet button!
