Flight from Newark, NJ on time and uneventful! Used Uber for the first time. Super easy, thanks for the info previously. Linq check in easy and quick. Room is pretty basic but a million times better than it was ( plus it's comped for the four nights, so that makes it a little nicer) Boy friend starving, so I dragged him to Ellis Island for the 7.99 dinner special. No beer included but only 2.50 for a 20 oz. Tried what I have been learning from the Wizard of odds & some of you guys about VP. Looks like I have much to learn yet. Bought in with 20. ( nickel machine FP ) played about half hour and only lost 8. bucks. Jumped over to 5. BJ and lost another 70. By the time we left EI bf was tired ( usually I come to Vegas solo, this is partially why, lol) so we come back to room and fall asleep. I get up around 2 and hit the floor. ( he's still sleeping, which is fine, he is the non gambling type anyway) Finding a 3:2 BJ game has become a little difficult. Finally find a DD, hand pitch 25. game. Just lumping along then "it" happens, super obnoxious drunk girl comes along, after three hands I decide time to go. Hop next door to Flamingo another 25. 3:2 multi deck shoe game. Bought in with two hundred ( same two from DD) played one shoe head to head doubled my money plus made back what I lost at EI. And now is now!
