    I am alive, no worries!

    Here is a short recap of what has happend today.
    Did drive to the premium outlet north, just to take a look around and MAYBE buy something. I guess everybody knows how tasks like this will most likely end... (Note to myself: Will have to buy a second bag for my journey back home :whistle:)

    Outlet was packed, and they started to charge you for parking. Did i miss something? Is the outletcenter now an mgm owned property? But anyway, spend some hours there and did manage to get the shoes in colour and size the best wife ever requested me to buy. Mission accomplished. Does this count as a win?

    Returned via Las Vegas Boulevard. Was pretty slow to drive there as always, but i just love to roll down all the way back to the Excalibur.

    Quick dinner at Johnny Rockets. The burger you get there does look more like someone rolled over it with a truck, but it was surprisingly tasty!

    Went to the mandalay for some gambling, but no love there. Mandalay just keeps on hating me. Didn't win a single penny there in the last four years. However, the drinks were strong and delivered quickly, and the CW did look very nice, so it was a win for my eyes. Took what was left of my todays bankroll and moved back to Excalibur.

    Casinofloor was crowded and loooong lines at checkin. Well, ok. It's the weekend, so no surprise.
    Had to pay Bierhaus Heidi a visit. Some smaller wins there, but nothing to write home about. Only downside: This damned bonussong is stuck inside my brain again for probably the next few days.

    After enjoying an unknown number of Jack&Coke and a nice cigar, i just called it a night now. I guess i am still a bit jetlagged today. Over all down about 800$ for today. Could be worse i think.

    No specific plans for tomorrow yet. Will decide depending on when i will be alive again tomorrow.

    Pics included: A golden Ferrari at Mandaly Bay, the runover burger at Johnny Rockets, a small but decent Heidi win, and the cigar porn of the day.

    You should count the shoes! They are going to be your big win because if she knows about the hand pay and you come home empty handed it would be a huge loss!

    Sounds like you are still having fun, despite the turn in your luck. It will turn back! Thanks for keeping us up on your activities. Always fun to follow along.

    That is out f**king standing!! For my usual bank roll, it's like arriving after a long trip and being told - please don't spend any of your money on this trip, we want you to take all your money back home. So, here's $7,500 of our money for you to use while you're here. Very nice!! :clap:

    How are acoustics at the more remote seats in Elbphilharmonie? Thought I would ask that question to keep your mind away from losses. Maybe another jackpot as nice as the one you hit on the first day is in store for you. Good luck!

    Could you tell me what type of bag you had on the plane with you? It's in the photo on your plane seat. I'm looking for a new 'personal' underseat carry-on and that looks like a great bag.

    The North Outlet has charged for out of state residents since late 2017, iirc. The South Outlet is still free.

    Fancy a shoe fetish here? :)

    Ask, and you shall recieve!
    Nothing kinky in here, my wife is a rather down to earth girl how likes wearing jeans and converse. That is much to my likeing. As Toby Keith would sing "I like girls that drink beer"
    Getting a pair of converse is not a difficult quest, but the combination of size AND colour was way more difficult than i expected.
