    Congrats on making Sterling. How was the hazy IPA? I’m really enjoying your report and nice keno win on a quarter.

    It was really good! Smooth, didn’t taste like soap, I’m not a beer drinker so I don’t have the vocabulary, but even as a novice I knew there was something special about it.

    This sidecard however, could put hair on my chest lol! Nice and strong. No sugared rim here in mid casino. You gotta play in the front for the sugared rim i guess. First world problems!

    You definitely have to be into the grind and like the game, or at least like getting loaded in the process. On it’s own it’s kind of boring, but if your gabbing with a friend, listening to music, or collecting free drinks, it’s okay.

    There is almost no keno in nyny! Here getting my comps via myVegas. Lack of keno noted, MLife! I think I am done with them. I will give Mandalay Bay a spin, but honestly, it’s like if Bank of America ran a casino!

    Thanks. When they told me yesterday that I needed 1400 points, I was like what in the Sam Fuck!?! I was like, throwing myself on the mercy of the court. Finally got there!!

    My peach martini is now a peach cosmo. I will change with the times.

    We missed you at the meetup but sounds like you def needed the sleep! Congrats on the wins & sterling! My only claim to fame on this trip is that my 2 night Cosmo comp in studio terrace defaulted into a wraparound terrace. WTH? I checked in late & that’s all they had left with a balcony. I was living the life!!

    Okay need tomake a decision. Do i go to Mandalay Bay and look for cleopatra tiles, the only place Ive found that game, or go back to Cosmo? I’ll probably go back to Cosmopolitan. I found a clone of cleo tiles at Cosmopolitan, but for dollarz. I hit on it once, second time not so much. Ughhhh....

    Well that is pretty awesome. Yeah sorry about that! I was losing and couldn’t stand myself, entered the “why are u like this? “ zone. I just can’t sleep in Vegas! Had to take a pill and podcast out. I even shut the curtains, which i never do. Fortunately I’m back up! Hope it was fun! Some day I’ll grow up and make a meet up lol!

    So it looks like "1" is one of your lucky numbers...do you always play the same ones or have any favorites?

    I have 4 core numbers and them I mix it up: adjacent numbers, physical distance on the board, or 69 due to emotional immaturity. It’s worked so far! I got carded didn’t I lol?!

    Always play 69, because what if you didn't and then it came up you would just DIE.

    (I would, at least.)

    Yuppers! It’s hard when i short number it. Someone has got to go!! I’ve scrapped 69 sometimes, like this morning. All business sometimes.

    Glad you liked the beer. The one I had from their brewery at 550 on my Sept. trip was one of the worst hazies I ever had. It was called " Hazy River".

    Also even though it's over the top on the ethnic theming, I am a big fan of "Latino Machino" and will often play it in Spanish for kicks. And when you hit the "Cucaracha" bonus, you usually get paid very nicely!

    This must become a new thread.. I propose you start it upon your return.

    :clap:Nice job getting sterling.. that point count yesterday probably didn't have any of that days play on it (?) Please let us know how that goes w. the resort fee, I believe Sterling won't comp it, but a host possibly could if you ask real nice.....

    color me not shocked things went better downtown... get that reup and re-parlay..! @Chuck2009x just got a piece of that Cosmo Cleo.

    agree gambling tired is much less fun-especially if you ever think to yourself "I kind of wish I would just lose this so I can quit and go to bed" - that is a sign best followed- with a cash out, not the lose it all.

    Congrats on your nice keno win! Yes....the whole sleeping in Vegas thing is a challenge for me, and I get VERY crabby if I don't get at least 6 hours/night. So yay you for calling it!
    Hope the rest of your trip goes well!
