    Checked into TI with no problem. Nice King Strip View room. I really like it here. Feels like home away from home. Hopefully I can stay on their comp radar from here on out.

    Nice night out tonight.

    [​IMG]

    This evening has been a slow roll kinda day. I’m down about $150 on the day but I played pretty much nonstop for the last 3 out of 4 hours. My VP luck has sucked this trip so far. Just two flushes and two straights. GT has hit numerous 4OAK and Full Houses. He had a nice $300 win on a Wizard of Oz slot while I was playing Top Dollar. He’s called it a night already and I’m in my room recharging my phone and myself. I carry a little Anker portable charger but I forgot to charge it last night, hence the room charging.

    Ok, this was a boring ass update. Carry on.

    Two nights gambling in the books and playing this has been the highlight so far...

    [​IMG]

    I put $40 in and cashed out for a little over $100. Played for about a half hour racking up little bonuses.

    Pocket dump confirms that I’m down $120 today but I’ve played a ton. Drank a fair share as well.

    Wish I had better things to report, but the slow bleed continues. At least I’m racking up a decent amount of points as I stay just below par.

    A slow bleed is better than an ass-beating! Hope you can find more wins!

    Good morning, Las Vegas!!!

    [​IMG]

    Started the day at 9am at the TI pool. I knew it wasn’t going to be the best pool experience, but it wasn’t terrible. Got front row seats and cooled off a few times in the hour and a half we were out there. Struck up a conversation with the folks next to us and they were from our home town!! Good folks!

    Showered up and grabbed a Bailey’s and Coffee at the Breeze Bar..

    [​IMG]

    Quick aside about the BB...last night was the first time I wasn’t approached by a lady of the night

    [​IMG]

    at that bar on any of my stays. Maybe they are cracking down finally? Last time was insane. In a 3 hour stretch I probably had seven different propositions.

    Took an Uber over to The STRAT and getting some beers in at the Tap House. First was a Bonanza Brown Ale

    [​IMG]

    Solid beer. Notes of toffee and very drinkable.

    Next up was the PT’s Irish Red

    [​IMG]

    It was ok. IMO, very Killian’sesque... is that even a word? Don’t know, don’t care. Feeling a decent buzz.

    VP is still hating me. Another hour in and nothing above a Straight. If I had to estimate, I’m at 5+ hours without anything above a Flush. At least my $20 got me two solid beers here.

    Check in later!

    It should be a word. I know exactly how the beer tastes now. I drank a lot of Killian's in college. Not sure why I did, but I did.

    And go get some full houses and quads will ya!

    So this is what my trip has devolved into...

    It took a trip to the Strat for me to hit my happy place. Finally it feels like Vegas!!

    Off a ¢.30 spin!

    Confusing a water with lemonade vodka is what all good Vegas trips are based upon. Enjoy the read. Go and get em.
