    Love the Sahara updates, but still too far north. Won a few buck on $5 Craps, got a chip. Now at Strat where I got a couple chips and played some blackjack. Broke even.

    Awesome pictures! It's been fun to follow along. I'm definitely going to have to check out this Bazaar Meats place soon.

    Took the monorail back to The Strip and finally, after 22 trips, made it to the Mirage Volcano show. Worth a watch if you’re at that end of The Strip at night.

    Went to Cromwell and lost $100 playing face up pai gow, and won $40 playing $10 3:2 blackjack.

    But at least got a couple Mai Tais out of it!

    Was going to go to LaLa Noodle, but it was closing so hit up Hattie B’s for some tasty fried chicken.

    Going to clean up and head down for my last hurrah!

    I keep playing Lightning Link games at $2.50 a pull and have NEVER gotten the hold and spin. I must have pumped several hundred dollars into it over the last few trips. Today I played next to a lady who kept getting bonus after bonus. And it just happened to me again.

    Why!?

    Hi Just caught up, great TR, with lovely info and pictures. I feel your pain on the bonuses, it has happened to me many times, then when a bonus comes along it is like $40. I think you may be due a handpay for payback:D

    Enjoying TR so far. Let’s get that RF! May have to give Sahara a shot! $5 craps at an MGM prop that’s not south of NyNy? Pull me off the floor!

    I can't believe I was sitting at a bar with you and didn't ask you for drink advice. You have the absolute best taste in drink selection that I've ever seen. So many interesting drinks off the regular grid.

    Hope the gambling goes better.
