    Wow nice room like people are saying, not the ‘nicest’ or ‘fanciest’ Vegas room but I think maybe the most comfortable looking room I’ve seen. Good luck on everything...

    And leaving Ellis with a loss again! Always lose here, but keep coming back. What’s wrong with me?

    Up $35 on VP but lost $100 at a cold Craps table

    Back at NoMad. Turned $40 freeplay into $32.50. Have a major Dramamine hangover, back in my room resting, caffeinating and hoping to go back at it!

    Love this band playing in the middle of a slot carousel at Park MGM. Vegas needs more of this weirdness!

    That’s their Belgian IPA. They went a little heavy west coast bitter style on it. I would have preferred a little more balanced.

    Good morning Vegas!!!

    After Shake Shack I hit a run of old school slots at NYNY. $20 in each, broke even or lost on most, but hit $90 on this weird slot:

    Now trying to join the living, heading downtown for most of the day!

    Nice to see pis of the Front Yard.

    We played that King Kong slot at NYNY on our last trip. It was a blast. Got to the top twice. Not huge wins but still fun. Never saw one like it anywhere else.
     
    They always put the machines that pay out in the front!

    Morning Craps netted $115. Shoulda cashed after the one good roll, but stook around for a couple short rolls and gave some money back.

    Now downtown! Made some ill advised bets on the Seahawks, and enjoying some tasty pork tacos from Project BBQ, courtesy of The D

    Man those Aristocrats are spreading bad. Thoughts on playing on one? I'm not a fan. You play any other games than Bonus? At least it's 7/5...
