    excuse me if I'm feeling myself a little..
    I have to... not claiming any credit, like life, these games are random.
    it's played a lot in my Vegas rotation,
    psyching up is part of the process:

    also @bull0120 , how could you not post the video that played a gajillion times on MTV when that song came out,


    editors note: trigger warning, this song contains the f....t word, \
    my friends and I were just discussing the other night how many classic things contained content that would not fly in todays cancel culture.
    Eddie Murphys Raw and a scene from the Bad News Bears were brought up..
    I appreciate the new sensitivity we have today,
    the old stuff, it was what it was, not all bad, not all good.

    Evolution, by definition, happens...

    Wouldn’t that be tremendous???

    What can I say @AyDee , love the recap! I really need to hit the bar tops at Cosmo again, I think that’s what is missing in my repertoire lately. Thanks for the effort and helping us get through the tough times between trips! :thumbsup:

    nope, all hers, but maybe kinda sorta w. my best intentions I was trying to send.
    all the credit is to her, and the most high.
    God is Good.

    Caught back up to this. Looked like a good time! Bummer to hear about the time outs at Cosmo. ~3 minutes I could screw up with a trip to the bathroom. Ugh.

    I said exactly that to Jennifer when she told me that, I'm supposed to spend 30 seconds washing my hands, and the restrooms aren't that close..

    tldr: time your restroom breaks to after a ticket spits.

    I was just fully engaged in a (yelling because he was 3 seats over and I didn't want to leave my machine or time out) great conversation with a new friend,

    at some point I was like screw it, I'll buy my drinks, I ain't no skinner box chicken.
    (lol this was before I learned a flute of Veuve is $28.. Would not be so happy paying that, next trip maybe we bring a bottle in and take16 oz Red Solo cups down.)

    all comp chasing is a choice.. There is an opt out option..

    to repeat what one of my BFFS said a few trips ago,
    (he's an avowed non comp chaser that refuses to ever get a players card anywhere)
    which has been our back and forth quote regarding a great number of things, and are great words to live by,

    "I'm a grown ass man. I can pay for what I need."

    as a enthusiastic comp chaser myself, thanks to all the great info here,
    I encourage you all to marinate on that.

    As P & I have been saying lately about comps,
    "We Get what We get, They get what they get"
    - ie: take the money and run.

    this is really a holding space for the next warmup..
    there's always the next, onward, forwards, upwards,
    "and tipping, always tipping"

    Happy New Year, AyDee!
    It was great meeting you, even if we didn't know it until the next day! Too funny. Yes, my friend never holds back on the cursing, especially when hitting a Royal! PM me that pic :)

    dropping in my Chandelier bar observations from @Gaggles thread, and the song that sprung to mind,
    and I learned a lot on the last trip posting up at Chandelier Bar, just watching what was going on..

    cons :
    • sticklers for ticket system, there's a little scanner too, so the 2 hour expiration is strictly enforced
    • Jennifer took mercy on my barely (15 minutes) expired 2 tickets, and did the tab thing @Spivderman described, then I eventually got things going with the next two bartenders..
    • I think they are sort of tiphounds, but if you get it started right, they'll work with you.
    • the strictly enforced spacing, it's supposed to be the rule, they just enforce it harder than anywhere else
    • there IS a 2-3 minute timeout on the machines for tickets.. If you stop playing for that short a stretch, the countup for the ticket starts anew..
      I believe previously, the machines would spit out a "pity ticket" for about 40 minutes of moderate speed play. The bartenders did warn me about it and confirmed that the quick timeout is happening now.
    • need to make reservations, at least when I was there on a busty (I meant busy, but it was also kind of busty) X-mas eve night.

    pros:
    • the drinks are delicious,
    • have you guys had a Verbena yet? Great for reaction pictures of first timers.
    • the upside of the strictly enforced spacing is you are allowed to be maskless,
    • this is kind of huge and why I kept returning, for breaks from the tables and some open face breathing (and smoking) relief...
    • all these little hassles actually seem to be improving your ability to find a seat at the bar to play at, and I'll take all those tradeoffs for that one thing.
    tldr: I wouldn't give up on it, try again after a shift change, some bartenders are way cooler than others,
    late shift Spencer is my man, if you see him tell him "Rat Pack Manhattan" AD says waddup. and throw an extra fiver at him, it'll pay off.

    Then hammer that Double Super Times 3 play @ 10 cents, until she gives up the goods.

    also go faster and hook up some 2 ticket Vueves, that shit good.

    re drink tickets,

    "This the motherfucking thanks I get?"
