    Yup! For those of us who pay for rooms, the time enjoyed away from the casino & on the terrace slows the leaks & I can delude myself into thinking that the room still pays for itself!

    Enjoying your report! Get us a shot of the current drink menu for Bond if you can!

    Two Guinness cost me $35 in VP losses, I like Guinness, but that's too steep!

    Of course, my daughter paid cash for this

    Well that's pretty much a wrap for this trip. Sitting on the terrace thinking morning will be here way too early

    Been a great trip. Good father/daughter bonding, some nice hits, good food, and a nice comeback today. Overall I think I'm down somewhere in the neighborhood of $1500, which is much better than where I thought I'd be last night.

    Now on to California for some good family time!

    I totally agree. I am a sucker for this bar. I have hit a royal on $1 there and few good pays on $2 as well.

    Paris is my absolute favorite; admittedly I bought one of these on my last trip. My husband was so disappointed in me, said I could have at least ponied up the dough for a drink in that balloon!
