    Guess I make a sacrifice to the Volcano gods. Not too shabby for three LIIT and a Dos Equis.

    6.0 if I was sober.

    Moved to O’Shea’s...I may need to reconsider LIIT. This is number 5 of the night. I keep telling myself “pace yourself” but my brain keeps saying “VEGAS!!!”

    Somehow...

    Someway...

    We got sucked into Big Wheel at Linq. There goes my plans for not playing any CET properties.

    Also, cocktail waitress somehow heard my request for water as a Lemonade Vodka.

    LIIT is definitely a “bang for your buck” drink - a lot of booze and a lot of hangover. Best of luck with both.

    Chilling at the patio outside Rhumbar enjoying a Super Smash Bros cocktail and waiting for Paradise City (Guns N Roses) to somehow get worked into this hip hop mix. I’m living my best life.

    Back to the room and pocket dump confirms -$200 down. That’s nothing. We had a blast tonight. Big Wheel sucked us in and I hit back to back 24s. Then I played $200 through $1 Top Dollar for nearly an hour. Only shutting it down since I’m tired and I’m sorta trying to pace myself.

    Now that I’ve had time to process this...

    Totally not worth the $15. Tasted a lot like raspberry....potpourri?? It’d be my one take back of the night. Shame they wasted such a cool name as Super Smash Bros on it.

    Pool time...

    [​IMG]

    Beautiful day to be at the pool. Been down here for about an hour already.

    Last night was a solid first night. Lost count of drinks but I feel like I more than came out even. No hangover this morning thanks to some Pedialyte and a bottle of water before bed. That stuff works wonders.

    Plan is to hang out at the pool until early afternoon and then move over to TI and resume gambling and drinking.

    Hope wherever you’re at while reading this, it’s a good one!

    Just finished up at the pool. Loved it! I could see Mirage becoming my new home in Vegas except for their lack of bartop VP. That said, I will definitely stay here again in the future. Room was exceptionally clean. Now to grab some lunch and then switch over to TI for the next two days.
