    Honestly find it ridiculous at this point how much vp I've played without a quad. Either way though I've had a great time with lots of nice drinks. On my way to mesa grill for a great meal if it loves up to the hype!

    Absolutely wonderful meal at mesa grill. Had the prixe fix meal which included tiger shrimp corn tamale, pork tenderloin which I added a baked potato, and some sort of chocolate mousse for dessert which was a wonderful light ending to a very rich meal. I had a cheery cola old fashioned and mesa traditional margarita, both of which were delicious. Service was excellent. Total came to just under $100 which was covered by my diamond dinner.

    Glad you enjoyed Mesa. That bread basket and tamale are soooo good. Never had a bad meal there and always impressed with the service.

    Penn and teller was decent, pretty funny and some cool tricks. Audience was packed looked to be almost sold out. Only downside was after my many afternoon cocktails it was enough time between drinks for me to completely crash. Lost my bankroll for the day already anyway so for the best but now just gonna hang in the room, watch some Seinfeld, and drink 4 bottles of water. [​IMG]

    That view is amazing! Really hope we can get that next month as my daughter ( just turned 21) has never been to Vegas! Room looks great too, I have to assume that there is a separate shower as well as that soaker tub?
    I know the feeling of the dreaded crash after day drinking, hopefully your water will rehydrate you and today a great day!

    View looks great. Staying there for the first time in October and since it's a Sunday and Monday night I'm hoping I get a decent view or upgrade on check-in. Not a deal killer for me but it would be nice to look out and see a view like that!

    Yep there's a separate shower and a toilet room to the right. Really nice bathroom.

    I'm 2/2 getting a nice view with the $20 trick so I'd say it's pretty likely. Good luck!

    Feeling 100% this morning. Woke up starving so went to hash house as I had a travelzoo voucher. Food was good, bloody Mary was excellent. Totally hit the spot.

    Now heading to the south outlets to do some shopping. Hoping to find some shoes as I only brought one pair and they gave me a blister lol. Not sure what my afternoon will bring but hitting up the aviators game this evening which will be awesome. I'm a huge baseball fan if you couldn't tell from my username. [​IMG]

    I had the same thing happen for the first several days of my birthday weekend in Joilet/Southern Indiana. I played many thousands of hands without a quad, and caught a fair amount of flack for it on here as being "impossible", which of course is an ignorant statement to make about anything involving VP. The last day of my trip I stopped at Harrah's in Anderson Indiana and I managed a quad about every 30 hands or so, which is another mathematical anomaly. Hopefully things change for you soon and you start stacking the quads up!!
