    Looking forward to following along! Sorry the gambling last night was crap. That just means you got the bad juju out of the way and hand pays are coming!

    Ughhh people on airplanes who put their bare feet up are gross and inconsiderate. I’ve seen people walk the aisles or to the airplane bathrooms in socks. :eek: Disgusting!

    Well decided to go gamble after a shower and watching some football prediction videos.

    I started at $300 for this round and buffalo whittled me down to about $40 for my first buffalo spins.

    This was my win

    After losing $500 on slots this afternoon. I went to find moral redemption on some video poker. It was basically a cock tease the entire time but full houses galore kept me around for an hour and a half.

    Decided to go to the room and enjoy the view and some fountain shows before the Cowboys and Bucs game tonight. Will watch that while playing VP.

    Also I promise to move around more after today. I know not to chase comps but I always stick to the same group of casinos and since Cosmo is alone...

    Dinner reservation is tonight at 8:30 so got some time to burn. Also plan on video chatting with my poker group for a few minutes to make them jealous of the view. We play every Thursday.

    Alright so last night I played some VP in the sportsbook before dinner reservations at Scarpetta. No major hits to speak of. Just kept taking my money. Ah well.

    Dinner was fantastic at Scarpetta. I sat at the bar and just chatted with the bartenders who were extremely friendly. I had a negroni, the calimari (forgot to take a pic), the short rib with pumpkin purée and for dessert I went for a fortified wine from Portugal. It was a 1977 vintage and one of the best wines I've ever had. I always try to drink something older than me regularly and this was an excellent choice.

    All in all an excellent dinner!

    Sorry about the dark pics. It was the lighting!

    After dinner went back to the grind and it chewed me up and spit me back out. Nothing hit on three card or high card flush. Then Money Machine took a few hundred. Elvis took a few hundred. Game of thrones took a few hundred. Etc etc

    Bummed and with $100 of budget left I put it in pinball. First spin bonus! And it got me to exactly $1000! So I said fuck it, I want to leave with something so I just cashed out and went to bed. It was around 2am anyway.

    Idk what happened to the pic because this is what my phone is showing me lol. I promise you I took a pic!

    So now I'm just packing up to head over to Planet Hollywood. But I think I'm gonna have some brunch at Overlook Grill and try that bottomless Bloody Mary deal.

    Also about to ask to see my play rated. I have less coin in than I wanted but we'll see what happens. I definitely think I earned the room though which is all that matters to me.

    Been waiting for a slots host for 30min now in the high limit room. A line I'd starting to form. Only having one room for this seems off. And it's just the same two guys just chatting away.

    Got everything sorted out with the hosts at the high limit slots. Took every charge except $24 and the tips of course. I think it was just a round number haha.

    So with the free room, no resort fees, the back end comps, I estimate it to be around $850-900. Then with my diligent-ish tracking I think I got right in line with what I "deserve" so woo-hoo!

    Also the host on duty said I wouldn't have any trouble getting rooms any day of the week and probably some free play if the trip is more in the 3-4 day range.
