    Thanks for your TR. I really like the old casinos like Binions and El Cortez.

    Last year I made my first solo trip at 70. Just waiting for things to calm down before booking my next trip.

    Ate dinner last night at Fremont cafe. Great food! Finished the night up at $25/hand double deck at Plaza. Was good night and broke even. Had good table comrade who was celebrating 30 birthday.

    Eating breakfast this morning at Magnolia's and then plan to cruise and see if anything catches my eye. Saw s sign for $40 Silver Strike chip!

    Checked in at VIP services at Plaza to let them know leaving tonight on red eye so they wouldn't expect play tomorrow even though have room until tomorrow. I love the friendliness of Downtown as compared to corp strip feel sometimes. I also like to just be sure that I am taking care of my host. Really like her! It has been difficult to play mu normal routine as Plaza is slow at BJ and hate to play alone. It picks up later into evenings and has worked out so far.

    Great tr!
    Descriptive, informative, and well written.

    Glad you’ve had a good tine so far , especially bravely trying craps. Now you know the fun.

    I saw the longest continuous runs on bubble craps last night that I ever had.
    (5 min, (though says 1. 5s to roll) no card insert, no points, Cosmo.

    Good luck on your final run!

    Sorry we didn’t cross paths, we’re checking in at the Cal either late tonite if limits drive us downtown or tomorrow.

    Thank you to everyone for the kind words, suggestions and following along with me foe my adventures.
    So final day wrap up....
    My flight is the red eye to Indiana. I had breakfast at Magnolia and wandered around looking for something to catch my eye. Went to the Mob Museum. It is very interesting and worth the time. They have happy hour pricing which is quite a discount during the week from 2-5. Highly recommended!
    Got back to Plaza and finished packing to go. Then went downstairs to play BJ until time to go to airport. Finished up final day as losing $200. Boo!
    Returned rental car and made my way to airport, through security with no issues or wait times.
    As I am waiting for flight put $20 in Buffalo slot and cash out $300. Then played an 8:5 DDBP who gave my four aces on sixth or seventh hand and cashed out $225 on that $20 investment. So leaving with total bankroll and +725 after nine day solo trip! Thank you again to everyone!
