    And that Sierra Nevada Torpedo is 7.2% ABV. This was a go-to beer for me for awhile. On my Feb. 2012 solo trip, Sheldon comped Torpedo at the V/P sportsbook bar. Next trip it was gone. I haven't seen it comped anywhere before or since.

    Haha good to know! I found it odd the alcohol % was not displayed on the case cause with ipas that's a dangerous game

    Love that view at Planet Hollywood and have had more times than I can count. Notice the two queen room doesn't have a couch by the window. Looking forward to the rest of your adventure

    Well got murdered at the casino this afternoon so decided to use the groupon offer and have a nice early dinner before the ball game at the golden steer. Really nice meal, had the petite filet and shrimp scampi with a double baked potato. Came with a starter salad that was pretty bad lol. Overall a good meal but for the price ($115 before the discount, included a beer and glass of wine) I think there's better steakhouses in this city. That said the steak itself was phenomenal. Perfect medium rare no need for any sauce or toppings. Heading to the ball game shortly. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Aviators game last night was awesome.$3 beer night so it was packed. Only downside it the long drive to summerlin but the ew stadium is really nice. Aviators won 13-3, lots of home runs. After that went back to ph a d grabbed a burger at ketchup. It was ok but the milkshake (chocolate pretzel) was awesome. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Finally got a quad!!!

    Having a great day so far. Went to nyny to redeem. Mykonami free play and had a crepe for breakfast using a myvegas reward. It's supposed to be a 2 for 1 but they just take 11 dollars off the bill. Thank God cause the crepes are huge I definitely could not have had 2. After that went to the cromwell where I finally got my quad. Also had a nice bonus on quick hits.

    Gonna head over to bally's now and hopefully get a bit of a strip crawl going. Have tickets to the aviators game again tonight but fuck it I'm just gonna get drunk. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Bally's was good to me, played at lobby bar for awhile on the same $20. Then headed to Ellis island where I redeemed the acg and lva coupons. Ultimately had no luck but had a good time. Enjoyed the steak dinner which was excellent for 7.99 but a darn cry from the golden steer lol. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice job on the quad! The steak special is definitely a great value; their BBQ is also pretty good!

    Well last night was a blur lol. Stayed up til about 3am hitting up pretty much every casino from planet hollywood to Harrah's. Granted in n out at some point haha

    The Cromwell is definitely my favourite. Awesome drink service. Got 2 more quads at the linq and a nice. $200 bonus on lightning link that I forgot to take a pic of. Definitely slow going this morning taking advantage of my 1pm late checkout. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I could say the same thing for every time I've hit up Ellis Island. Never have any luck, but always have a good time!
