    Great report! If you happen to make it to the Downtown Grand, can you let me know what their table games hours are? If they are still weekends only or if they have opened up during the week now?

    Thanks!

    Good morning Vegas! Just know its gonna be a great day when I open up my blinds and strain my neck to look up over the industrial HVAC unit and see some blue sky.

    Went down around 9 and played the progressives at GG. Played for an hour and a half and left up $10. Had a bloody mary for breakfast. Hit a couple quads for $50 each. Left my phone in the room to charge so no pics.

    Now cleaning up and heading to the Arts District.

    It is running, but not on Sundays. Hence the walkabout.

    Currently at Able Baker Brewing. About a 30 minute wall from Golden Gate. All on Main St. Easy walk but wouldn't do it at night. Pretty tame on a Sunday late morning though.

    Pic dump from the walk.

    Nashville chicken sandwich at Able Baker. Awesome spice level but flavor was a little lacking. Had a few beers there, now at Nevada Brew Works. HUDL Brewing next. Then probably head towards The STRAT to poke around and Sahara to hit Bazaar Meat for dinner.

    Gamblers General Store looke much bigger than I remember it. But quite possibly the last time I walked in there, Amazon wasn't a thing. Enjoying the off-piste stuff away from the canopy, not an area I've spent much time in at all, thx for the pics and the info

    Live from the...Aztec Inn?

    Sure! They have a not too bad Dueces Wild at the bar. The PBR drafts are flowing.

    Awesome report so far. There was a comment in a recent LVA about the Vue bar no longer giving points. I'm not sure if you've played there and if you can confirm. What about the linked progressives at GG, are they paying points as normal? Thanks!

    So it was weird. It showed last night that I wasnt earning any points but when I put my card in this morning I had a point balance and was earning for the play. So I think you still get points.

    Caveat here, I don't know jack about comps or the difference between points and tier credits and other such stuff. So I don't really know what's going on. o_O
