    I’ve never had anything less than a stellar meal at the Palace Station location. It was a bit thick and just had an odd taste to it. I was thinking maybe it was the rice, but who knows. I have the manager info so I’m pretty sure if I’m out there again at some point, I’m good if I wanna try it again.

    Damn, I spaced and didn't realize you were doing a TR, the title tricked me,
    we were in the same place several times separated by a hour or so...
    as discussed cell service was terrible
    we bailed Circa around midnight, didn't play, hung out in the room, and also got stuck in that terrible wait for a cab...
    hope you keep winning :thumbsup:
    and maybe catch you next time.

    Jelly you got to meet @luck.ofthe.draw

    Wow, so much fun the last couple days. Branching out in trying new places with LOTD this trip for sure. Bardot was tremendous, and I’m actually going there again this morning! Ferraros was really tasty as well, and they have a great happy hour. And @luck.ofthe.draw the more I think about it, that guy we sat next to at the bar was somebody famous you were right. Thanks for being some great company, it was great. Totally can’t wait to meet @MCann on a future trip too!

    With the option of working here, it’s allowed me to be here for the longest time ever. I’ll be completely honest, it’s an absolute shit show here. Since I’ve been here since Monday, it progressively has gotten more and more busy each night. There is no social distancing whatsoever, and there are people who are just plain idiots. Sad, but it makes me a little happy to see it back in motion like the March Madness of old. Craps tables are full and loud, “MONKEY!” is being yelled out at baccarat tables, and people are actively cheering at slots. And of course the games and the fans making noise on every little play.

    The gamble is going well. 5 nights of slots, tables, and sports betting and I’m still up like 1400. That first night though, I’m glad I hit those beauties on VP or I definitely would be down. I’ve been low rolling slots for the most part lately and staying even on sessions so that’s kinda awesome. I did have an extreme up and down session on Crazy 4 yesterday at Caesars. Down 750 and then battled back to down 200, so I’ll take that. The good slot hits are there, but the pics have decreased. Here is one that paid for my dinner at Ferraro’s:
    AEE95CD9-59DC-45E1-AEC2-67391AA51BFD.jpeg

    So this morning’s plan is to eat and figure out what I’m going to do. I have the Aria room technically until tomorrow, and that drive home would be brutal today. Probably just hit the road super early in the morning unless I hit something big and WFV a few more days? It would be interesting to see if things thin back out after today and Monday huh? Does anybody know about any laundry places close to the strip? Asking for a friend…:whistle:

    There is a place, I think it's called Express laundry? That my understanding is, does a daily pick up run from resorts, then does a fluff in fold and delivers next day, if that's your kinda thing. Let me see if I can find the info. No idea what it costs but I saw a real in depth review of Ellis Island hotel where the girl asked the front desk about laundry room or service. They dont have it, but they have a stack of business cards for this place and use them as their laundry service.

    Edit: found em - picture added...

    When we had thanksgiving dinner there, our server happened to mention that Raiders owner Mark Davis is a regular there and had just left when we arrived for dinner. Maybe him? Some of the Raiders players frequent the place too apparently.

    I'll be there in April and if you're still WFV, I'm solo Monday night the 19th on, not sure how long I'll stay. Currently booked on flight leaving 21st but have ginormous suite booked through the 23rd. I might consider bringing my work laptop and stay the whole time if money allows and I can get away with WFV too lol. I've rented a fun convertible until mid day on the 20th too. Hoping Luxor might have $5 craps again early mornings on the weekdays but it not I may venture out to Ellis Island or downtown or somewhere south for better gambling value, pretty wide open at this point.

    What an awesome trip so far! I definitely need to add Bardot to my list. At this point my list is so long I need to plan a month I Vegas to hit them all. Lol

    I would love to have the flexibility to just add days to a trip! Enjoy today and go win big!

    Thank you for the laundry information, they just may work if I stay an extra couple days. And yeah, that wasn’t Mark Davis. That guy has a face that I would recognize anywhere. But I think he was somebody.

    Yes! It’s open right now. Would be a great spot to catch some games, but I had to go walk a couple laps after the double Americanos!

    I’m gonna leave in the morning, it’s time. :thumbsup:

    6 nights (tonight being 7 nights) is a long time for this SoCal guy. High point, up 3K. Lowest point was today, down 2K (100 baccarat table was too up and down and then down again...) I’m going home in the morning with the same amount of money with what I started with (thanks to a really hot $25 craps table that numbers were just hitting like crazy!) and I just went and paid 200 at the front desk in cash (resort fees and about another 350 comped off - shit is expensive here... lol). And there was a couple hundred dollars in charged at PH too. So, in the whole grand scheme of things, I’m up! The host also said I should see the same if not better Mlife offers moving forward, so that’s pretty cool. Some random hits today....

    So, gonna go to bed at the unheard hour of 8pm and hitting the road at 4am! Goodbye Vegas, it’s been real... :thumbsup:
