    Leaving Las Vegas is always a sad day. :( Especially leaving early in the morning. We're trying to beat traffic but it's doubtful.

    SO! Last night! The concert was awesome! They played a bunch of old songs and there was a lot of good fan interaction. :) I got lots of good pictures!

    My favorite band member, Billy, was in front of me the whole time so that was awesome!
    IMG_20181124_221009.jpg

    After the show, my regular phone was almost dead, so I couldn't call Uber. My work phone was at 14% and reception was spotty, so I couldn't download Uber.

    I went out to the Taxi Line and waited with a crowd of people. Taxis would line up in threes, and people would meet the taxis individually. I was third, so I approached the taxi at the end an asked how much to get to Flamingo. He said "Like $30. You know there's a pick up line, right?"
    "Yes, I just came from there, I told him, and walked back to the line for him to pick me up. I got back in and he said. "Call Uber, it's $30."
    "I can't, my phone is dead." Then he got an attitude and motioned to this other couple waiting in line. "You take Uber, get out of my cab. Take Uber!"
    "Excuse me?" He motioned to the other couple and they came over.

    I cursed when I was out of ear shot and waited in line again. Unbelievable.
    Was it because he didn't like me asking for an estimate? I was in a leather jacket and all black, does that make a difference?
    He drove off too quick for me to get a cab number. I got into a nicer cab, and holy hell, the fee was only $9. I tipped him extra cuz he was nice.

    I was pissed until I got to the room, and saw that M had gotten me a stuffed flamingo from the gift shop! Yaaay!

    He showered and we went down to look for food. By then it's nearly midnight. I couldn't use my Diamond dinner, didn't even try, so we ended up at Fulton Food Hall at Harrah's and had pizza slices. Cheesy and good! IMG_20181125_000958.jpg

    Then it was time to game a little bit!

    He probably made a bad judgment call...thinking if you had to ask how much for the ride, you weren't going to be a good tipper.
    His loss, @luck.ofthe.draw. He didn't deserve your good vibes in his cab anyway. What an ass.
    Wishing you safe travels home. :biker:

    @Syringe Monkey - here's the one I wore last night after the show....from their 2016 Book of Souls tour. Still one of my favorite shirts.

    The new one I bought is this: https://www.hottopic.com/product/iron-maiden-legacy-of-the-beast-demon-duality-t-shirt/11578646.html?cgid=band-merch-shop-by-artist-iron-maiden#start=5

    I got a freaking "Royal Fush" but because it had a deuce in it, it was only worth $40 instead of the big one (damn!).

    Ended up breaking even and left with a little more than I gambled with!

    I'll do a final wrap up tomorrow! I have very important kitten cuddling to do and my laptop is in the other room. ;)

    Great pull for M!

    But now I'm pretty pissed they put some real shitty payback quarter games in the non-smoking section though. 6/5 JoB (95.00%) and 6/5 DDB (94.66%) should really be avoided if possible. Many casinos seem to put worse VP in non- smoking sections. Sigh.

    Once again, another great report!
