Discussion in 'Vegas Trip Reports' started by Gaggles, May 24, 2010.
hello friends and neighbors, well Vegas neighbors anyway!
After perhaps the most ridiculous past few weeks of my life, filled with Exorcist-like home life with the wife and daughter fighting while their heads spun and they spit out split-pea soup combined with a business situation involving heavy negotiations, last minute cloak and dagger back room bargaining, and the potential for future bankroll devastation and the family living in a van down by the river, I have emerged from the fire.....walking thru the last flames and smoke....the air clears as I enter OHare International Airport.
Alive but certainly not unscathed, the distination: Gaggles bday weekend in VEGAS BABY!!!
The family battles are settled, the bankroll has been infused by a better than i could have imagined resolution to the business negotiations. Well to quote Han Solo "I can imagine a lot"....but suffice it to say things worked out and this trip will now be far more enjoyable.
Flight leaves in 90 minutes....first class Delta thru Salt Lake City. Ive been grading the scamp ohare hos like a professional spot the hooker player on the vegas strip. its all low rent here. I am ready for gambling, drinking, turning down hot hookers, and most of all Canadians yelling "HOOKERS AND BLOW!"
Wishing you an awesome birthday!
salt lake city layover report....rainy....lots of hot blondes but i think they put out for kids not money. reminds me of what i dont like ab out nebraska, the average dude here is like 6'5" and i feel like Super Mario. love being 5'11" in chicago where the average guy is 5'5" bald 28 year old named Guido.
Have a fantabulous time! Have a bday drink for me , please hehe
Enjoy the great weather too!! woke up to snow this morning, and heavy rains started again UGH
Don't burn down the Flamingo.........I'm parked there in July..........
haven't gambled yet but luck has been a lady thus far:
no flight delays
hot blond flight attendent seatmate on flight
signs I may need an intervention:
4 limo drivers at airport recognized me
The Phantom Driver from Wynn was holding a placard for a chinese gentelment named "Fu"....I said is that "fooo" or "efff you"? Well I must have given this dude enough of a tip before that he remembered me and said "It's Eff You for You Mr. Simpson". yeah good one. I said just don't run over me with that thing like Phil and he said that's why its got the reinforced steel grill.
Funny thing is Phil (bald Wynn Phantom driver) is the theme thus far as my Flamingo driver Lou was talking about him as well.
Anywho I'm showered and shaved, sorta and ready to meet up with Airball1996 and his Husker crony and Gaggles will be along soon.
I have to admit I did mis-time my haircut slightly and it looks like another squirrel sighting as "The Boss" told me about the pic at Voodoo with Gaggles last August.
Besides Phil the other themes thus far are tall sexy blondes, pink walls, and white lather, I mean white leather. I have an odd feeling someone will be getting SPANKED tonight!!!!
Following Airball's posting live via Twitter - have him take a few photos! Good luck guys!
Yeah i've been following airball's tweets too while at work sigh...
You guys planning on hitting the Encore Beach Club? Looks pretty nice.... a little more expensive then the Sky Suite Lounge though......
...and on the 8th day god took a shit in his hand and dropped it toward the Earth.....
.....and Gary Loveman bought it and named it "HARRAH's".....
thought of that after 10 straight hands without a face card on VP....before I switched to $5 and started hitting full houses.
the wallet is....FATTER....
had to charge my phone and come back up to the room to get it.....throwing $1K in the safe.....aka the secret pocket in Alexanbo's wallet.
still no word from Gaggles....no word from Airball since he checked into his hotel an hour ago...then again he has been out for 12 hrs.
my nose feels numb.
Getting emotional. trying not to think about Law & Order going off the air.
stumbled into Harrah's employee lounge looking for diamond lounge and read a sign about how they are going to start paying employees in TITO's.
I may not be from MISSISSIPPT and 4 out of 5 women who are super hot except for dental issues may not call me a STUD, but that is where the the big dog is headed!!!!
(disclaimer: my dad's a dentist so I always figured I could overshoot my match and go for a hot chick with a snaggle tooth. 5 out of 5 times they left me for a better guy after my dad fixed it)
......we're no stranger to love...you know the 8/5 rules and so dooooo IIIIIIIIIII.......
never gonna give Quads uppppppp.....never gonnnnna say Royal and hurt you....
FYI......my buddy at the IRS says Harrah's quit ordering W-2G's.
never gonna let the hold down and desert yoooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.........
Did you ever find Gaggles? Did he get to the airport? Bad weather once again here in Alberta, pushing up from Montana! Lots of rain and now
flood warnings in Southern Alberta, Temps are hovering around 32F!!
Yesterday morning and today, we've woken up to a heap of snow , here in Calgary !
Wish I could be in the Vegas heat , watching you all playing on a *heater* hehe
I expect a bedtime story soon...
You are on a hot roll, rick or otherwise, with the one-liners...
would it kill Harrah's to stock a couple Vicodin in their vaunted "Go" Rooms?
ooooh oooh that hurts.
ok so its super busy in Vegas and i don't know if its just me but the cell service was horrific and getting online with a phone was not going well last night. plus there was some minor activity going on.
hmmm where to start.....lets see......
I don't wanna hi-jack Gagggles thread but he seems pretty indisposed with other duties so I'll nut-jack it a little here at a minimum.
note: I just checked to see if all my teeth are there, they feel funny. my head feels like someone hit me in the back of the skull with an uppercut from a plastic Flintstone wiffle-ball bat.
i headed down to the Flamingo casino-floor at 7pm expecting to hear from Airball1996 or Gaggles at 8pm when I head back up and get my phone. I played for an hour on $2 DDB VP on the bank right when you walk in from lobby a bank of like 8 in a sort or simicircle of 2 each if you know that spot. I got nutjacked. Never saw even 3OAK. had a run of 10 hands of what we call "a bucket of F^*k" or no face cards or pairs. oh crap I already told this part sorry.
Ok so I got my phone no calls, and hit MS STUD. I bought in $500 and was getting the usual beat down to $200 but started varying my bet down ro $5 or up to $15. All on the $15 hands I got dealt jacks, aces, and some other good cards. ended up having 4 out of 5 hands trips, trips, 2 pair, trips with max money in on $15 which is a total of $150 bet. Played down some and cashed out up $700 when Gaggles finally texted down in 15 min.
Went and blew about $1,000 at that worthless VP ciricle-jerk. Still up a feww hundo. Looked around for Gaggles and traded phone tag misses with 10 minute texting delay and phone calls not connected. finally found he and the troops at the side bar over by the bathroom sorta towards sports book i guess.
Sat down for DDB VP with new friends and Gaggles. Drunk having trouble with names, finally got it. everyone getting spanked. finally gotta free drink and tipped $5, guy never came back. lol. I hit quads for $500 on $2 and played it all back down to $235 we decide to leave, switch to $5 and hit quads at $65. Waited forever for handpay situation and finally got it done and the crew was audi.
Arrived via super crowded strip with our group getting drunker. and funnier and funner. We grab the coupon book and I have $50 freeplay. Gaggles slithers like a garter snake into an open bartop and hits three quads before I can order a drink. I get a $2 machine won't take my card and buttons don't work. Play $100 on $2 DDB and get quads dealt 6's 4-5 hands in. Cash out $560.
The crew is getting very funny around this time as drunkeness and hilarity ensues. I'll let Gaggles expand on that, I prefer to hear his version. Suffice it to say he disappears and they don't know where he is. I know teh bank of machines on the floor over by the door where he spent like 8 hrs one night and sure enough he is quading it up over there. somehow here it suddenly goes from 10 pm to like 2am.
We leave the royale and head past caesars to Bellagio. i cringe to imagine some of the pictures taken by us on that walk. The statues at Caesars were blushing.
note: ahhhh the teeny bopper neighbor pounding the girlfriend in the "go" room again huh? i remember the same thing from last time I was typing a trip report from here. lol.
ok so we get into Bellagio and try to get a drink from VIP lounge but realzie quickly that is a no guy. Gaggles parks at ridic quarter progressive where he literally got a handpay for quads $126.34. :evillaugh gay poke:
i decide to take my 100th piss of the night and steer on back in a wide arc taking in a seat at the $10 progressives by the craps pit. 3rd hand in hit full boat 10's and Jacks and thought better of cashing my $550 ticket. getting a nice streak going of playing short, hitting quads, cashing out. I likey.
Oh and by this time I have a nickname similar to "likey" from the group. one coiuple headed back to the room as it was 3ish and they were prob getting sick of me and gaggles babbling. so 3 of us head over to Bally's/ Gaggles hits his now infamous progressive by thte back bar. I put a hundo threw that blazing double 7's and got blazing double skunked. thought better of my normal $1000 puke up on the roulette table and headed to that back bar for $2 DDB instead. Got spanked. Got drinks. Got yells from Gaggles sitting behind me getting no drinks but lots of quads. lost $500 and bought in $300 more while switching to $5 Chasers delight, dealt quad 9's for a second hand pay of the trip, doing quite nicely now with about $1,500 up in bankroll, plus some small bills.
Gaggles couldn't get a drink. Pretty cocktail waitress stopped by and I ordered for him as he pounded away at the buttons just like he pounded away with a nudie book in his closet pre-trip. (to avoid the cats no doubt). Gaggles gets up and switches to other side of bank...cocktail waitress simultaneously walk around the other side and takes his order AGAIN!!!! niether of them knew??? it was like deja vu all over again as he reordered his pimpin' goose n soda roses lime. so we are tired trying to get him to cash out he finally getts drink and we are on our way out of ballys. At this point a pic of me with a extra long traffic cone used as part of my anatomy was taken. damn hands are still dirty from thta nasty thing.
we hoofed it threw bills towards flamingo and damn that was all ghetto gangsta up in the club ballin'. whatever that means. long line at victorian room, over to flamingo burger joint, its like 4am huge line, gaggles goes diamond baller and we get right in. actually the place is empty but a long line. well played Mr. loveman.
after a while the nasty ass food comes, sliders and steak and eggs special. let me just say that red bloody pre-cooked medium well "ribeye" gaggles got with flies swirling around it was less that appatizeing. they musta hand picked the lettuce off my no lettuce sliders. they were ok, no flavor mostly brread which was good, i used a whole bottle of A-1, after offering it to Gaggles as SuperBad-style Seth-n-Evan luuuuuuube. I also bestowed him a fresh garnish of pink boa i found on the floor.
I pointed out the meal and gaggles tipped so we ate near free and wewll it still prob wasn't worth it. lol.
The rest of the crew hit the hay for the night at 5am, I went back to ms stud til 6am. nothing big hit, one nice one to go from losing $300 to maybe losing $130. So I end the night up near $1,350. avoided the siren song of $5 hi limit theievery DDB VP and hti the room for a quick pass out.
That was not even 3 hrs ago, these generic Ambien blows.:evillaugh. Wallet looks healthy and even have a loose green quarter "license to chill" baby.
All in all it was a super fun night as always with Gaggles and his always wild and crazy and super fun insane border jumpers.
I should say now I do miss my baby Seany Seany Sean cause we fall asleep on the couch together every night watching stupid reality TV. and not having his slobber on my shirt does throw me off a bit. Also our game of saying "baby" "dada" while i point at him and he points at flight going over my house is fun. Although that was disrupted anyway due to constant military choppers over my house since Thursday due to some famous visitors to Chicago for the Memorial Day thing.
Ok hope to see gaggles version here somewhere with more details cause mine are foggy at best. I know he did well gambling and we had lots of fun joking. back to bed for a while until pool time.
Beejay and Gaggles - Yeow! Another live report. The bride and I arrive Sunday around 10:30am. Staying at Orleans again. Beejay I still have your cell phone number programmed in my cell if it hasn't changed. If you are still there it would be great to get together. Enjoying the report so far - keep up the good work!
I think I'm gonna just miss you unless I headed over there for the breakfast buffet on my way to the airport which may be an option depending on tonights activities.
Up $1,400 on BJ, MS STUD, roulette, and quad 4's 2 hands in on $2 DDB for $800. getting nicely into the black!
Yeah I don't think we'll be there until 11am the earliest. Have to go get the rental car. Oh well enjoy the rest of your trip and keep winning!
Despite the fact I actually ENJOY the buffet at Flamingo & Paradise Cafe, that burger joint food was awful the stop I made there.
The burger I ordered actually ended up not even being a burger - yet it was listed in that section. Philly burger - which I expected was Onions, Roasted Peppers & Cheese sauce on a BURGER - but nope, some type of sliced beef. It was not great at all. I think I was there about a week after it opened, so service was very spotty. Others were getting their food 15 - 20 minutes before me and they had normal fried burgers which should have taken lots longer than a sliced beef sandwich.
However, the chocolate malt..................well that was absolute heaven on earth!!!!
So considering my $100 food comps are all at Flamingo I'm going to have to probably bite it and eat one meal there.
