    Not exactly a gourmet treat, but I really enjoy the Marketplace in the lobby of MB. I’ve been working my home based business since 2015 so make my lunch every day. I don’t normally eat any meat except chicken breast and minuscule amounts of cheese. They have locally made prepackaged sandwiches that are a treat for me. About 10;30, before my nail appt, I bought a ham & cheese, a bag a chips and a bottle of water. I went down to the beach level and found a quiet corner to eat. As my dad would say, “ What a cheap date.” Held me over for an early dinner and something I’ll only eat while I’m here.

    Sorry about the losses! Tomorrow will be better!
     
    Because I'd rather be sitting on a Cosmo Terrace than in the snow!

    Best of luck on your trip.....if he was going to make your life grand he should have been able to give you a slot machine and it's number that will help in that grand process. Maybe just remote way to help the bankroll. Good luck!!!!

    Agree. Kills me how some people almost gleefully have a sense of entitlement that they don't believe rules -- federal rules no less concerning heath and safety -- apply to them. Also really disappointing about American.

    Other than that and the initial snafu with your room, it sounds like you had a great first day! Kudos to MB on the cocktail service!

    I’m on a comp. The MyKONAMI free play can be used on a comp but the others are not. You can also get the Konami from several properties, but you can only redeem them at that property. I bought one for Luxor but most go there to redeem it. Hope that helps.

    Today was turning out exactly like yesterday. 4 different slots and only 1 bonus for $5.50. But then this happened. I hope it wasn’t a fluke.

    Long dry spell but it’s starting to drizzle.
    BTW, I love the MB casino but hate the bathroom locations. The only one actually in the casino is closed.

    Will report back with the limits here tomorrow. Not much action though. I’m a craps and bj player but the plexiglass takes all the fun out of it for me..

    Turned into a total lightweight. So sad. A few drinks and I had to come up for a nap. I guess gambling straight from 6am to 2 pm was enough anyway.

    Amazing day. It was either feast or famine. I’d throw in a c-note and either hit pretty good or run through it in a mere 3 minutes. Made up substantial ground. Now only down $363 for 3 days. Coin in is a little low due to not being able to recycle anything yesterday.

    Earring the last if that left over pizza, which may be a mistake. Time will tell. Here a few more highlights from today.

    Done for the day, fingers crossed tomorrow is more like today than Monday.
