    Food downtown?

    Plan for gaps.

    I think @Ty had an informative post on hours, here’s what websites are saying today:
    Aw jeez, can't use your FC, that's a shame..;)

    Also, one day P went to get some Pizza at Plaza.
    Aw, jeez, the system was down so she couldn't use FC.

    Intention heading out soon:
    Don’t feel obligated at all to give any extra play to any of these casinos that turn ghost town dead at night.

    Still max FP & FC.

    Try to eat something good while somewhere is still open.

    Keep on tippin’, it’s a house/management issue, not a worker issue.

    Shower Lucky & Toast w money.

    If you’re not set on eating at somewhere you have comps I highly recommend Carson Kitchen downtown. We really enjoyed our meal and the service there when we ate lunch there on our trip. I believe they are open everyday from either 11 or 12 to 9pm.

    That was basically my experience when I stayed at Cosmo in early 2019 on a teaser comp offer. I would have had no idea that using Identity points to pay down room charges could only be done through a host. That makes absolutely no sense to me because I can directly spend Identity points just about everywhere else on the property. I, too, got the slightly condescending telling-to about not "earning the room" -- and I have since focused my Vegas gaming dollar elsewhere (haven't even walked into Cosmo in five trips since then).

    Was southpoint double deck? Cal is 25-1 not 15-1 because its a double deck. When its more decks more chances of getting suited pair so it pays less.

    On the $75 FP offers, both Luck and I used them at both Christmas and 4th of July; however, at 4th of July, both of us had (2) of them each: one that expired at the end of the weekend and one that just came in our email within a couple days of our arrival. When we went to the desk to load them, her CSR appears to have loaded the old one, while mine loaded the new one. She still has one and I dont now, and that was their bad.

    @B T : the gift shop is located right before the arcade on the mezzanine level, AS IF you were heading towards the MSS bridge.

    @MARK: Correct, the SP BJ was shoe, TIL about the odds, makes a lot of sense and really illustrates how hard getting suited is on double deck - they’re the only two in there.

    @MCann: yeah, IDK, whatever, it’s not the no offer, it’s the wasted time spent chasing comp offer mirages.

    Totally with you on that! I just shared to reinforce that I agree there are errors, not always in your favor.

    Congrats on your 2 potatos at TYS 10-play!!!

    I forgot you need to pull out and reinsert the card to update points, so all my TC tracking experiments expecting the display to change in real time were complete and utter failures.

    Saw someone pick up two stone IPA bottles from where @Tarpie was playing, but the waitress informed me either they don’t have it , they don’t want to give them out, or they are out.
    Not sure, she kind of said them all. She did offer Goose, though.

    It's Tarpie :)

    Ordered an IPA earlier this evening and it ended up being a Goose Island. After that they were all Stone. My apologies if I drank all their stock of IPAs :)

    Nice meeting y'all. I'll be bouncing around Cal and Fremont St tomorrow evening so maybe we'll meet again.

    Teaser. I got notes and stories that need to be told. Later.

    @tringlomane I’m passing on the ace ten ddb draws. Thanks.


    And all hope is not lost, cocktail service is great!
