    Pictures are showing up just fine from my perspective.

    Is it fair to assume you were able to just walk in at Magnolia's today without being asked for a reservation? I noticed they took the "reservations required" note off their website.

    Yes, I just walked up and got a table. However, at Chicago brew I had to wait to play video poker until the guy said I could sit. He had to sanitize the machine.

    Video poker was brutal last night. I really enjoyed playing at Circa at the upstairs bar. Of course, everything is so new IMG_20210223_031922710_MP.jpg IMG_20210223_021942883.jpg IMG_20210223_053455351_MP.jpg

    Long day today. However, I managed to finally get to skyline casino and frankie's tiki. Both were very much worth the visit.

    Skyline casino was very much a locals joint. The bartender knew everyone's name, very welcoming. At skyline I actually doubled my $100 buy playing VP. IMG_20210224_172647132_MP.jpg IMG_20210224_180110787_MP.jpg

    It's super windy here tonight and cold. Back at el cortez I hit this IMG_20210224_231605713_MP.jpg

    I left el cortez a loser but I did manage to hit two quads back to back sitting at the horrible pay tables at Ike's bar. First time I sat at an el cortez bar this trip. IMG_20210225_053430093_MP.jpg IMG_20210225_053332431_MP.jpg IMG_20210225_062900227.jpg

    Both pay tables say 175. And it says Bet 5....Seems weird but 6:5 seems weird too......

    Looks like those games are using this pay table mentioned on the Wizard of Odds site:

    "The following pay table was seen at the Morongo casino in California.
    Bonus Poker — 35-6-5 — 97.36%"
