    Reservations are still a good idea, but only the tablecloth places are requiring them. So it's normal in that respect.

    My experience with ordering "country" is that they usually forget, and that YMMV with how old the cauldron of gravy is, and whether or not a particular employee at that particular location knows where it is. They have biscuits and gravy on the full menu, but I've never seen it on the 2 sided menu they hand you except, rarely, in the little box of a la carte sides. I love me some sausage and pepper gravy, but I almost always get the all star special, and it's just too many calories for me if I get the hashbrowns country. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who's ever ordered this because it seems like they're not used to handling that request based on the fact they either omit it entirely or put some different topping on in the first attempt when I have ordered it.

    ABE Airport is a hoot, I think the first time I flew out of there I parked on a surface lot and walked to the terminal. Cheese crackers and a bottle of water, good to see that MGM is staying classy and had someone stop at Costco on the way over.

    Reflecting from a business standpoint, the combined restaurant is a super smart idea from a corporate prospective, as it lowers the nut... And from the customer standpoint, a broader offering is available than any other pool restaurant I've seen.

    Glad you are having a good time, notwithstanding the nudie cutie at the pool. We are coming down on a junket Sat. from Chicago. Well, hopefully we are since they have changed the flights 3 times already. I know you said the tables are open with masks but how are the machines? Popped in in Nov. and if I recall quite a few were in a carousel type configuration but some rows had machines shut down. Also curious if you were able to swipe at a kiosk for the 5x or did you have to go to the club. Enjoying your photos and best of luck to you!

    my understanding is that you can swipe for the 5x at a promo kiosk...they are in the middle of the casino on the left of the upper level as you come in. Still many machines are carouseled, and there are some off.

    This is where I should be posting victory.................but I am not...

    I settled in to the ten play 7/5 bp and loaded up with 1k,.... lost 500,

    Reloaded another 500, bumped to .50 ten play.... played a long time.....but no....

    Saw I had 1900 tc...... well... ya have to play to 2500...right?????

    So I went back to the room and got the 2k out of the reserve and went down to the $5 9/6 job triple play.....75 a throw

    This is usually where I would say...boom!!!!

    But no.... ended up grinding out another 1000tc in record time... (funny how 75 a pull will do that) and made back 25 bucks.... so a loss of 1475 today and down 1375 total... ouch

    In fairness, I had been running pretty well, but my royal drought for the year continues.... so attached are thumbnails only of minor hits on my losing way.......

    On a positive note, I re qualifed diamond today.. IMG_20210329_200145747.jpg IMG_20210329_203226176.jpg IMG_20210329_210401196.jpg IMG_20210329_214704594.jpg IMG_20210329_220814722.jpg IMG_20210329_221426724.jpg IMG_20210329_222657357.jpg
