    Some thoughts of my quick trip
    • Palace Station oyster bar combo has a great flavor but don’t ask for really spicy because it is spicy for mild but not worth the $30 after tip price tag. Might as well pay for a buffet at this point.
    • Golden nugget has shitty paytables for VP unless in High limit and Four Queens has amazing Pay Table at the bar. But I never win anything at four queens or Palms. So does the paytable really matter if you don’t hit?
    • Be careful of the UTH at Venetian/Palazzo. It says 1 million but that’s only for a royal flush in spades. And they don’t pay for three of the kind on the flop.
    • Downtown gets packed at night as much as the strip. May need to look for secluded grounds like Red Rock or green valley for more comfort to avoid crowds.
    • Is there really any better domestic flight than JetBlue?
    • Really need to insert some activity’s in between gambling.
    • anti diarrhea (Imodium) is awesome for flights or long treks. Just take a couple hours before.

    Definitely a trip we all dream of. Congrats on the huge wins!! And there is no better domestic airline than JetBlue. I use them quite often. Booked my next Vegas trip in November with JetBlue. Non-stop flight on their Mint plane. Fantastic airplane!!
