    Okay I’m all checked in and in my room at the Mirage. Front desk lady was kind of a ball buster, wouldn’t give me a high floor, view, king bed, and made a note that i might leave early an I and to call before 5 pm if I was leaving early. She did pronounce my Polish last name correctly so that was nice.

    I kind of have a view, if you ignore the hvac stuff.

    Thanks! It has been fun! I got a bit spooked by my brother’s downswing, but he doesn’t take it to heart, and he clawed it all back. And made sterling in a day. Jerk! lol

    Using my Five / 50 free beer reward on a $14.50 beer. It caps at $14 so i have to pay 50 cents. Not why I bought it, an even stupider reason abounds : i liked the name. Thicker than thieves

    Okay, sorta collapsed there. You know when a toddler doesn’t get enough sleep? I was kinda approaching the adult version of that yesterday lol. Questioning basic life choices, getting dark etc. so i forced myself to go to sleep. At 5:30 pm ! Got 11 hours though. I did miss the meet up but I was in no shape to drink and socialize .

    Now that im all rested i feel good enough to go downtown!

    I think I will walk back to Cosmopolitan and check on my tier status. I still hadn’t made sterling but the room payment may not have hit yet. Ugh will also get some food. Mon Ami maybe.

    Some pics from yesterday

    I went downtown. And took them for $400 something!!

    Had a great lyft driver Solomon, who spent half the trip worshipping “Dinky Donuts” lol he meant Dunkin. We talked about how much easier Arabic is to learn than English, Stamford Ct where he was previously living, rent prices. Fun conversation, and i got to see the Arts district, which is a bit further than I thought from Fremont. Won’t be walking there anytime soon.

    I started out at the Plaza and ended up at the El Co, where i won the big one. I had made short money at the plaza, very frequent 2 egg and 3 egg multipliers, but I didn’t like the payout if u hit all the numbers, so i wandered.

    I decide to swing from the rafters and play 4 card keno and I hit it. I woke up today and said to myself “ I want to hit 6 out of six again and I’m not leaving until I do.” And i hit it!

    Here are of pictures from wandering around...

    And my “big win” lol. Well for a quarter, I’m impressed!

    It’s little touches like this that make the El Co so special.
