    Half hour at Plaza bar and this is best I could do. Broke even though. Just met NWAKALUM08 at 4 Queens. Excellent man for a buckeye!!

    Heading back to El Cortez to make some wagers on golf this weekend.

    Ok. What a day 1. So after going all over the city doing coupons, plus a few downtown coupons, started the trip +$275. Had a seat at Plaza bar with a couple drinks to get the booze flowing....and then I headed to 4 Queens to meet the prestigious @NWAKALUM08.

    Hung out for 15 minutes at Kings bar talking football and such. Wade and Waldo has just finished crushing steak and eggs at Magnolias, pictured above. Looked amazing. All I had yesterday was chick fila biscuit in ATL airport and In n Out. Probably could have used the food.

    Leaving 4 Queens, I headed to El Cortez to make golf bets. I saw earlier they had lots of props. Buuuuuut damn Sportsbook had closed. Then I realized the other books closed up shop too. DAMMIT. I was going to bet Bryson DeChambeau to win, and of course I wake up and he’s leading early on. Ugh.

    In frustrating I decide to take it out on VP at Vue Bar. I sit down, and the guy next to me says.....so you decided to come up here huh?

    @NWAKALUM08 is literally next to me and I didn’t see him haha! We shoot the shit for at least an hour. I think I had 90-100 points after playing, not sure the points/coin-in ratio there. Zero quads. He mentioned his royal flush 15 times to rub it in. Haha, we were a hoot up there. We got several strange looks during our Chewbacca noise contest. Not sure if the contest was who does it best...or loudest. Had a Stone IPA and an 805 beer. After two Red Bull and vodkas, my new friend said goodbye, as he had a flight to catch early on. So around 12:30am I left the bar, which has made my walk into a slight stumble at this point.

    Heading back to GG, I fell into an open slot at $10 craps. Decided to play for 45 minutes or so. Rolled twice. 17 rolls, and 10 rolls. Neither was very exciting. Walked away -$15. Walked away from VP -$120. Still a positive day with coupons though.

    After 5.5 hours of sleep, I’m up, and so are the boys. Showering up and probably finding some breakfast. I think Queens breakfast at Magnolias hash name on it. Day 2 is about to be my bitch.

    Wade has the case of waters, so about to break down his door with my pedialyte powders. Might wear pants....haven’t decided.

    Pedialyte and water around 8am. That helped a good bit. Not too hungover but a tad. Walked to Magnolias for breakfast. Wade and Waldo got steak and eggs again. Twice in under 12 hours! Both times used each other’s BOGO coupon.

    I got a real breakfast.

    Damn good. Made some $5 soccer bets for the morning. Went to Plaza bar to watch, but every other machine off. And only the machines in the corner have VP on them. Only 1 had 9/6 JOB. The others were 7/5. Waldo played for a little bit and at halftime of soccer game we switched over to Vue Bar, which is where I’m currently residing. Couple of baileys and coffee, now switched to Bud Light.

    Finally a quad!!!

    Gearing up for the Man City/Chelsea match in half an hour. Got $5 on Chelsea +310 to win. Big gambler here.

    While typing, we have Waldo with his second quad of the trip!

    My $5 Arsenal ticket is a winner. +160

    Inspiring! You just don't see that kind of thoughtfulness and dedication out of many people these days! So many just let their lives happen to them but this - this shows thought and planning!

    Waldo is HAMMERED.

    Is that a ring or the Papal stamp to close the envelopes with the melted wax seals?
