    Breakfast at Sarah's Kitchen at the Klondike Sunset Casino. I have been informed that the $1.50 breakfast special is no longer. This was it. New price, $4.29.[​IMG]

    These are really good on hardwood floors. But maybe you could donate it to a Goodwill store, there are several in the area. Would probably cost $15 to ship back.

    This post has a "Fractured Fairytale" title:
    'Ok, I lied. ' or 'I must have a really great smile.'
    I'm actually a diamond level player with CET. I was offered the whole week in the Valley Tower for about $120, or just 5 days for free. But where's the adventure in that? So, I booked 4 different hotels, double booking today. So I checked into my Harrah's room. (Pics below).
    And this will make your eyeballs explode... I'm staying at the Silverton. Reason, the bed is far superior and I can watch 'morning Joe' tomorrow, Harrah's doesn't get MSNBC.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The Harrah's room is very nice. But can understand you doing what makes you comfortable.

    At that price, you could have 12 shrimp cocktails for the price of the single, 3 shrimp cocktail at Adiamo's, and still have $1 in your pocket!

    Times up. Time to go home.
    Met with Joe and Mrs Joe last night at the Boar's Head bar. Truly good kind people. It was a pleasure to meet them. As Joe said, he's like Norm from the TV show 'Cheers' at that bar... everybody knows and loves him there.
    Met with Crapsplaya and Mrs Crapsplaya just after having met with Joe. A really nice couple from Tennessee out here for the first time. Crapsplaya has such a strong Tennessee accent you can't miss him! We had a lot in common and had dinner at 777s and then played...what else?... craps. We all left the table a little richer, went to Lappert's ice cream for a scoop, and called it a night.
    We have such nice people on this board.
    .
    Total cost for the week long trip was my bankroll, $2,000. That's all in... including airfare, car rental, gas, food, hotels (2 nights in a nice suite), everything. I'm ok with that.
    Lastly, my favorite bit of kitsch in Las Vegas, The Cashmans:[​IMG]

    Love following along. GREAT job with the pix.

    Is that a (gasp) coffee pot in the Harrah's Valley Tower room I see in your pic of the room? We are checking in on Friday, and my wife is planning to pack a keurig travel machine with us again, but if there is a machine in the room, Bonus!

    Yes, that IS a coffee pot in my room at Harrah's. I PURCHASED the coffee maker at Walmart (Eastern and Warm Springs $10.84). They do have single serving coffee makers in the diamond level rooms; can't state if they provide them in all of the rooms. Either way, the CET corporation provides absolutely the WORST coffee you've ever tasted and my recommendation is that by all means, BRING THE KEURIG. lol.

    Fun TR. you really covered vegas very well. You should have run your own prop bet. Where will I stay? Suite -275. Or room with a good bed +185. You would have collected my $$. Also sweet profit for your coupons

    People like me dropped the ball. This should have been moved to the TR section awhile back. Doh.

    I sorta was wondering why you weren't playing Boner Deluxe already at SP! That's my go-to bartop game there even though it hates me...lol Strategy wise it isn't bad either, basically JoB for pairs/high cards and DDB for straight/flush draws.

    Great report!
