    So remember how I’m out of slots bankroll for today? I broke into the VP stash and put a $20 into the “right” double diamond as confirmed by @Flowers . When I was down to $4, I got a hit for $20. Cashed out! I think reel slots are not for me. Too much losing. Are they better for a longer session? I mean, should I have been playing $100 to play them right?

    Placed a couple hockey bets with my Super Bowl winnings. Played bubble craps at Excalibur, cheated the BR and played the Dolly slot there too. Then bartop VP at NYNY Bar at Times Square. Down $67 for the day. VP and table games bankrolls still available.

    Off to dinner at MAG, then to Tuscany Suites ( never been there) for the live music.

    Tuscany has a nice looking lounge. I was at the showroom for Rat Pack is Back and thought I'd like to come back just to visit the lounge with live music.
     
    Solo. Ok'd by wife. Time off approved. Flight purchased.

    Dinner at MAG was good. The steak was excellent but the fries were meh. If I’d wanted them more I would actually have sent them back. But I had the delicious hot baguette for a starch so I was good.

    I walked over to Tuscany Suites for the Monday night lounge act. Great music! Played and lost at VP with a little caveman keno thrown in.

    Went to cash my TITOs and get a players card. Got $7 free play. Played some craps; lost just over half my buy in. I came in on a hot shooter but no long rolls after that. Friendly crew but not super accurate. One of my losing pass line bets was left on the line and later I had to ask for my winning 8 payout.

    The band is tuning up for another set.

    Ended the day down $140. Not too bad.

    So. The tub. I decided I had to use and tried it out. It’s very big and very slippery. There’s no non-skid matte or etching. It was... awkward... until I figured out a trick with a washcloth. Once I had that rigged up, I was able to chill and read my book.

    No jets.

    Good night!

    Tomorrow is Red Rock with my friend in the morning. Dinner with her later and then a show.

    How many "points" did you get at Chandelier? It should print one right before you get 21 points (100 max bet hands at quarters) as long as you've played for 20 minutes.

    I struggle to keep pace too. It's taken me 40 or 50 minutes before. And there always seem to be an occasional machine that plain doesn't work.

    Good luck the rest of the way!

    Ah, that’s why. I doubt I played 100 hands before feeling done.

    My slow play was totally justified at Tuscany. The bartop machine was one of those that don’t tell you clearly when you have a winning hand. I almost missed a winner.

    Thanks for tip ages ago to play BP, btw.

    Good morning!
    So craps at Park starts the morning at $10 then pops up to $15 before 9am. Us $10 bettors were silently grandfathered in.

    Today is Red Rock!

    Red Rock was awesome but I realized how hungry I was when every restaurant in Grand Canal Shoppes sounded delicious. I was there to pick up the Atomic Saloon tix.

    Petroglyphs!

    I need to do the Red Rock loop. That's on my list for April, before it gets too hot.

    How did you like the grilled cheese and tomato soup?!

    My mom and I are already planning to enjoy it either in bed (after we put a bunch of towels on the bed to deal with potential tomato soup splatter) or by the Encore pool. :)

    Blew 2/5 of my slots bankroll on a Dancing Drums at Wynn. Bleh! I hate losing.

    Sage was amazing! My friend and I both had the vegan tasting menu and each dish was delightful and delicious. The service was not as polished as Le Cirque, but still very good. My friend was so happy she could not only order off the menu as is but that the vegan dishes were so thoughtfully prepared, not a mere afterthought. Sorry the dessert isn’t complete-dug right in!

    Then, we wandered back to Park for some VP bartop. My friend is learning the game, so she played one coin only. I hit a nice 4oak after switching to triple play. We cashed out and called it a night. Oh, after I walked my friend to her Lyft, I popped a $20 in a Sex and the City slot. Hit this called it good and cashed out.

    Hard to believe vacation has gone by so quickly but tomorrow is my last day.

    I’m thinking morning breakfast here at Eataly, craps before the limits rise, and....???? Plane doesn’t leave until 6:30pm so I’ve got most of a day.

    That’s what I’m hoping for! After trying that trainer app I kept looking for Pai Gow but I only saw $25 tables. Just. Can’t. If I go downtown....

    Thanks for following along:)! I’ll write a wrap up once I’m back in the real world.
