    Thank you! I've had a great time. Not glamorous but that's what I like.

    First of the day. Now I need to go dump some used champagne at the base of the Berlin Wall.

    I think my wife found my lucky green rock in a ditch instead of a high-end Rock shop based on scratcher results. :)

    One thing I do like about the Rams is their return to their uniform style from the 80s.

    At the gate ready to go. Flying back into SFO on Alaska using miles for first class. Outside Village Pub at the gate but way too full to eat after my buffet debauchery today.

    Today's gambling numbers...
    Left the room with $600
    Checked out of MSS with $631
    +$31 for the day

    Overall down $6 for the trip.[​IMG]

    I stayed at California in Nov 2017. About the same amount of low rolling got me $19 cash toward my room.

    Today at MSS Bconnected desk they said there was nothing for this trip except for a play $10 get $10 offer.

    I guess part of their loyalty program changes?

    Also, I asked at all the downtown casinos, except Golden Nugget, about tier upgrades for active duty and military vets. None of them do it. Employee at The D and Downtown Grand said it's something that's under consideration.

    I read that Mlife and Total Rewards offer upgrades to Pearl and Platinum tiers respectively by showing your ID or DD214. I didn't make it to any of their resorts to try it out.

    Things I didn't get done...
    - Atomic Liquors
    - The Mint Tavern
    - Brilliant

    Traditionally I've flown out midday on my last day. I really liked what I did this time, reserving the room for tonight for a place to relax and fly out in the evening. I think that will be my plan for future trips, come in early Friday morning and leave late Sunday night.

    Unfortunately my wife is not a Vegas or casino fan so I normally go solo twice a year to Las Vegas or Reno just for two or three nights max.
