    Is that an oven under the cooktop?

    Good luck!

    Off to a great start, keep it going. I am about ready to jump the CET ship after this year. Vdara may be in the running based on the microwave alone.

    It’s a small dishwasher. The ovens are standard with the bigger rooms I think. And thank you!

    I absolutely love it here. Other than I just found out that Starbucks is closed from Tue-Thu, but thankfully my friend packed a mini coffee maker.

    Oh Ann, I think you’d love this room and property! And no Red Lobster last night, we actually didn’t eat until a couple hours ago.

    Thank you! The luck is in my side so far for sure. :thumbsup:

    BA197245-604F-4785-A77B-2EF18483D198.jpeg Okay... So last we left off I had an hour on my hands. Headed over to Aria and the craps tables all had my spot taken. Then over to Park MGM and took a stroll around the place. I had a great time heading through there when @luck.ofthe.draw and myself were on a walk about. The roulette table was calling my name but since I don’t remember the last time I played it I refrained. Stick left on a craps table would prove to be pretty profitable. Everyone was playing the don’t and passing the dice. One guy asked me how I’ve been shooting lately and I responded, “Like shit, I should just roll from the don’t...”. But I wasn’t feeling that and they all just loaded up on the don’t. Man, I rolled 4 7’s in a row on the come out. Had a pretty decent roll and left the table up about 500 or so, but now it was time to hit the airport.

    Later on, we couldn’t decide what to eat. Lots of alcohol entered the picture so no driving was gonna happen so we just ventured down the strip a bit and ended up at Ellis Island. Talk about impressing the ladies... lol

    We played some $5 craps there. Pit boss was grouchy and we were lucky we were both playing or the other one would have been rudely kicked off the table. In another post somewhere I said I’d press the shit out of $5 place bets there, and I totally did. And I offended someone at the other end of the table because we were on the don’t for everyone except us. That seemed to work out well, and when the asshat kept grumbling the pit jumped in and said “Sir, you don’t hear anyone complaining about your bets do you?” :thumbsup:

    We were in that table for two hours and drunk and hungry. I kept telling the waitress, “dark... beer”. And she was a doll! Put our names in at the restaurant and ate. Two steak and egg specials. Feeling guilty about all the carbs, I tried to substitute the potatoes for bacon. Nope, so I ordered extra and only had a few of the potatoes. Then I thought, “you’ve been drinking carbs ALL NIGHT LONG!”

    On the food agenda for today - John Mulls and Din Tai Fung. One thing that won’t be eaten today is this Ketel One infused oatmeal. Apparently the bottle wasn’t closed when I packed it and it leaked all over the bag. Wait, maybe I’m setting a trend and should try it later? I know @FormallyTD has an opinion on this... :thumbsup:

    Sorry to hear Ellis wasn't great. I've always had great experiences here. Their dealers are always nice, helpful and cheerful. Always had some great tables. My experience in Dec was one of the best. The whole table was Chicago people. They heard we were from Detroit (Detroitish). We got a nice little rivalry going on.

    Keep going to Ellis, it's a great place. And a $5 table lets you do some really fun stuff compared to that green chip action in Aria.

    How did you like the table at Park? I've never played there.

    All this talk about doing laundry, washing dishes, cooking meals, and eating leftovers in your room has me questioning everyone's interpretation of the word "vacation". You all can come have a free "vacation" at my house any time while I go to Vegas.

    Dealers were great. You can tell they don’t get tipped a lot which is sad. The Park table was fine. Any table is fine when your winning! I’d play again if my spot was open.
