    late BLT & chips in the room
    They don't offer a club sandwich, but there is a turkey, this must be rectified.

    Shared a Soup after sparkling wine and wins at "HL" VP..
    Took a while, (15 min, IIRC), they were making a new batch from scratch.
    it was late, they were out of pickles and warning people ordering sandwiches.

    As I mentioned before, I was at Overhang bar, trying to get a drink, when Derek S cuts in front of me, asking the bartender for a piece of paper (and a corona lime & a tequila rocks for his buddy).
    I was dying to say hi, but he seemed in deep concentration, sketching what appeared to be a stadium swim layout.

    The next morning I got to watch the plan execution from the room:

    for @CaptCampion , his daughter, and huge big up Roxy, our favorite South Point Host with the most for coming through.
    I need to go back to South Point... and get 6 consternated suits staring at me on the craps table..
    (a story I heard from a Circa Craps dealer that plays there sometimes)... I shared my banned for a night story with him..

    hmm. what else... P slots?
    wait... pause.. first..
    after that Cosmo windstorm incident we headed to Plaza...
    we planned to share a slice of pizza and a salad, to hold us over until our dinner at Barrys.
    Apparently, all the neighbor hood casinos were having sporadic power outages,
    Pizza spot couldn't process any orders (no comps, no cash, nothing... ) because the system was down..
    Seems to be a recurring theme for us that that place tends to have issues often.. no one remembers the days when you could do things with paper and ink.

    IAO.... Guess that means we play a while...
    I started by having the Bubble craps machine fritz out on me the second I hit my 8 point..
    The reboot took a while.. Any nerds wanna see reboot sequences?
    The bubble craps took much longer than the slots around me did..

    :eek:Come on, I pushed the button!
    mild panic while I wonder what will happen.. These power off & reboots happened no less than 6 times.
    as the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy teaches, "Don't Panic",
    In every case, the system eventually came back up with any last second wins and credits accounted for..

    Vegas- Feb-CNY-VD 252.jpg
    and yes, I'm sometimes not all bad at pushing the button, :D;)
    Vegas- Feb-CNY-VD 253.jpg
    can't get the orientation right for some reason, note blank roll during power out.

    lets try some VP then.
    :eek: Happened again.
    Vegas- Feb-CNY-VD 263.jpg

    was getting fed up, and wanted to leave, but overheard an employee saying same thing was happening at neighboring properties.



    (shout out @vegas superfan )
    Ended up getting a snack at MacDs.

    intermission...
    no shill, no cap,
    thanks Circa, may Downtown stay strong and carry on,
    may there always be something for everyone,



    we can tell stories, and pour some out for the old days, but Vegas is always evolving.

    I was trying to remember who I drank this beer in honor of, and I believe @jpw711 just reminded me in his thread shouting out @MCann
    (Shout out to @Jpw, Banquet is much better than I expected, I think the cold stubby bottle helped)
    (Got it from Overhang bar in Circa)

    My error here was telling the roaming masseuse to check on me later, didn’t happen and would have been money better spent.

    $1 min can kill some time, though.

    Your meal looks like it was a 10+++++. My first and only meal at Barry's was about a 7 but I felt as though dining there for me COULD be a 10. Your pictures tell me it can be a 10.
    And I love how the music made your night (nothing like a great food and great music combo) and that you tipped the DJ, in a lucky red envelop no less! A+++++ move and I'm sure you derived joy from the giving. :love::love::love:

    Wow. ACE move by the waiter to give extra sweets and glasses for the room for the leftover wine. I've now fallen in love with Barry's via your dining experience. Barry's has so many different areas with their own personality. In which area did you dine?

    we were in the center area, facing the DJ, bar to the right, area w the tree behind me.
    That was where Derek headed when he walked in.

    "I warned him"
    aka
    • "the big don't that didn't"
    • "the Smashening"
    • AD & D-Money in da houseee!
    What can I say, I warned him,
    there's a don't bettor thread going on among the craps fans,
    I really get a kick out of it, a guy shows to me left, we trade some friendly banter, he says he always plays don't, and lays odds.
    I say, cool, but I'm warning you, you might not want to don't me, maybe give the pass a try one time.
    It's just a friendly warning, I'm not a dice controller or god or anything, I just seem to be able to smash donters regularly.
    The more their bet outweighs mine, the more assuredly.
    The dice can be a cruel mistress.

    I believe he says "We'll see.", then
    he kind of ignores me and heads to the other side a bit before dice come to me.
    I take this maybe as respect, he doesn't want to bet against me and be next to me.
    I'm a little drunk, and when he puts like $900 odds behind a don't pass 5,
    I do the Jordan and get psyched to have an enemy, not personal, just business.

    I start quietly talking shit, not to the dont'er, but to the dealer to my right that I've been toking the daylights out of.

    "You know how this is going to go, I've seen this show before..."
    I'd like to think he was entertained.
    try to tell the guy at some point I'm not shooting for the five,
    just six and eight all day, and I hope we can both win.


    this is the strategy that ensures my win.
    absolutely no malice but serious motivation.
    Shoot the lights out of every number but the five,
    chips rack up.
    my new buddy "D-Money" I met at the same table 3 hours ago shows back up.
    we make it drunkenly loud.

    did I mention my time is drunk and hardcore time? thats 5:06 AM. My flights at 11.
    "point is five, shooter."
    Noise brings people to the table, people buy in,

    Vegas- Feb-CNY-VD 491.jpg

    Feels like 15 minutes have passed.
    Dont'er gets steamed, leaves the table to sit at a slot, yells at dealer while people buy in to "just let him roll"
    I do the Miles Davis and turn back on table, ignore distractions until dice are out.
    Oh, it's 5 am now?
    Start telling very entertained buddy dealer to "quietly" hop fives.
    Vegas- Feb-CNY-VD 492.jpg
    see below table - (you know it's getting serious when shirts are taken off)
    . . .

    Third time's the charm.
    Mr. Don't appears to vanish into mist.
    D-Money is quite impressed.


    Why would you don't a grand on a single number?
    If I was dont'ing I'd try to at least get 3,
    IDK.
    I warned him.

    Spit it, Andre 3000:
    This for my don't bettor smashed story.



    Vegas- Feb-CNY-VD 493.jpg

    it's an optical illusion, the stack isn't that tall. ;)
    :hmmm:is that the ghost of darkside chips? :kill:

    I sincerely apologize to those in the travel struggle, most especially @Gaggles for what you went through,
    I really just can't believe this is possible, and it is not even that extravagantly priced.
    JSX, check it out
    (full disclosure: also not sponsored, it's just mind blowingly incredible when it's LAS-BURbank)

    @Sonya
    I tried editing it first this time, could you please pop this over into the TR section..
    :thumbsup:(Thanks!)

    I would like to add a link in the beginning to where the warm up ends and the TR actually begins maybe... but then again, it is a process.
