    Wowsers! What a night. Great friends, a nice big VP hit, and awesome food, booze, and tobacco.

    After my lucky Royal everything I touched turned to shit, which is about standard for me. We played a ton of craps at the D. My group rolled well, the rif raf at the tables not so much. Oh well, the money I take/blow is for entertainment purposes only. I'm not as delusional as some as I have fairly low expectations on high vig games.

    We have some hours left on our bender today before the hate mission home.

    It's a new day folks...

    Pretty sure you can smoke cigars at the table, but honestly most folks can't stand it so we only light up on a slot machine away from people.

    This is what we had after dinner. IMG_20181130_111231091.jpg

    Funny, as soon as I read this, I read it with the Italian meaning ("Andiamo" means "Let's go" in Italian) and thought to myself "nooooooooooooo it can't be over yet! :eek:"

    And then I read the next lines of the posting and it all made sense.

    Great TR... looks like you're having an awesome time... and good job on the royal! Hope you'll need some elastic bands to haul the winnings home :)

    Apologize for the long intermission everyone, our last half day was quick and packed with lots of DT stops prior to departure. Just too quick of a trip to keep live on the second day.

    After a few hours of drunken sleep Saturday morning, grabbed a solid eggs benny and a large coffee from the D grill. This is where the remaining hours went a bit unplanned...

    At Andiamo the previous night I received a surprise text from another great friend who couldn't join us on this particular bender. He quite generously offered some solid football pics and a PayPal transaction to make a 3 team parlay.

    Not wanting to pay a ridiculous transaction fee for a withdrawal, we headed out to find a Wells Saturday morning. This turned out to be a TWO hour train wreck. First branch several miles away in traffic was not only closed but completely shutdown. Back in the car and finally came across another branch and low and behold...no less than 40 people in line who all appeared to be applying for a mortgage since it took a full hour just to see a teller and finally get some coin.

    Back to our regularly scheduled programming we proceeded to hit up the Golden Gate for one last dice session. This place has quickly become our favorite place to play craps. The dealers are sharp, respectful, appreciate tips, and don't sweat a random short roll or two. Played about 3 hours, down a bit but not felted. It was a really fun table and a great way to wrap up the trip....

    Except....

    I had one more order of business to take care of prior to departure.

    All I have to say is GO SEAHAWKS!!!!

    Had to watch the game, not on at home.

    Found a local....right after a Vegas trip....might be divorced when I get home...but momentarily richer if this game holds.

    I've boycotted the NFL for close to two decades, and didn't even know what the Texans were, but had to look up the scores.

    Three big favorites covering = Vegas Bookmakers were likely bitch slapped, congrats on the very nice parlay!!!
