    Had the weirdest handpay of my personal vegas history last night... somehow the slot had an error.

    And, as I felt out of time after being awake for about 36 hours, a burger at The Henrys at 4:30 am. Yummie!

    Quick lunch at Momofuku. Pork belly ramen and pork belly bun. Really good, soft and juicy.

    Uneventful gambling tonight, but i‘m about even, so I’m happy with it. Casino was packed tonight, really good vibe in there. Now catch a bit of sleep. Still not fully adjusted to the local time somehow. Tomorrow is moving day, will report back in after arriving at NYNY. Stay tuned!

    Now that is the way to watch the fountains. I like your style.

    That pup is adorable.

    Made it to the NYNY and got checked in way before 3pm. Score!

    Room is clean and pretty big (Maquis Suite) with view of the rollercoaster and MGM Grand.

    Had dinner at Gallagher’s. Really good! Had the Filet mignon with caramelized onions, onionrings ( A lot of onions, I know) and a scotch old fashioned.

    Now a short break and then I’ll hit the Casino.

    I enjoy Scotch as much as anyone but I highly recommend a Old Fashioned with rye or at least bourbon. The bar next to Triple George downtown when you make the move to Fremont isn’t a bad spot for this.

    Ok please carry on, and I hope you win some dough.

    Good morning VMB!

    Got a real beating gamblingwise yesterday, but anyway, days like this a very likely to happen in Las Vegas.

    Had a quick breakfast at America inside NYNY. Considering the price it was not bad.

    Today is pretty much blocked for a tattoo appointment. Estimated time until finished: About 8 hours. That will be a long hard day I guess...

    Will report back in after all the ink is done.

    Not judging at all but i don’t get people who go to Vegas to sit for hours and get a tattoo , can’t you do that in your hometown? Each their own I guess,not like I’ve never sat in a dark Vegas dive bar for a few hours in the middle of the day! Anyway I’m really curious what happened on that hand pay, don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard about that here. Thanks for posting about your trip and I look forward to following along.

    I understand your opinion. See, Vegas is a destination I try to visit once or twice a year. Good tattooartist located at my hometown have a waiting list for at least (!!) 9 months. I met this guy last year while in Vegas and we shared the same ideas, creative pictures and somehow there was a certain kind of trust I felt for this guy. I don’t get tattooed by a random stranger, I have to feel a certain vibe before someone is allowed to hack on my body for hours and hours...

    So, I don‘t judge people partying and drinking all day long while in Vegas. To each their own I guess.

    Anyway, here are some still very red pictures of the ink done. I can explain the meaning of the different parts, if anyone is interested.

    Right now at the Davidoff Bar at Fashion Show Mall for a nice MyFather the judge cigar and a Hendricks‘s Gin. Sadly without cucumber.

    Good ink, but I bet it was bloody painful. I would have wimped out.
