    I think one of the hosts in the most recent YCBOT was lamenting not pressing into a horn roll like that, any more details on your pressure?
    Sounds like the rare and very exciting run all craps players are waiting for.
    Love the energy of a hot female roller.

    True, it doesn’t happen very often. 25(5 for the crew) horn high yo... 50(10), 75(15), 100(20), 100(25). Toyed with the idea of taking it down after the 5th hit but no. Couple of 11s in there so helped with the other pass line losses.

    OMG thanks for pointing that out, I crack up every time I read peoples ways of doing things like that. I save money at home various ways to be able to go on vacation and indulge in not doing the same Sh***T I do at home.

    John Mull's Roadkill Cafe was on my list of things to try. It looks really good. How was the mac and cheese? I think we will have to make our way out there. Did you eat there or bring it back to the room?

    Nice hit on the horn bets. Got it to $100? I'm sure the dealers loved their tips too. Hopefully they rated you well for all that play!

    I thought it was good, but I’d take my recommendation with a grain of salt since I’m mainly a low carb guy so ANY Mac n cheese probably will taste good. And yes, even the pit boss cracked a smile on the 5th hit and when it was time to drop.

    I remember how much you like the chocolate nut brownie in this one. And look, corn in seasoned salt. He likes corn!

    So back home and sadly working today... I’ll try to get to a recap in the next few days. 3 nights in Vegas and down $400 all in. Had to cut it a few hours early due to home issues, but had a tremendous trip! :thumbsup:

    Loved reading this. Vodka/Oatmeal is going to happen on my trip for sure.

    Sadly, we didn’t get to try it out. But goals, am I right???

    My view in Vegas was better than my volunteer view in the local vaccination station. 0A390457-DC1C-40BE-927D-D69753386A3A.jpeg

    Just a couple of thoughts...

    - Like others have pointed out, mask enforcement was pretty nonexistent in my opinion except for Aria and Wynn and over enforced at Ellis Island (which isn’t a bad thing, he was just rude about it..)

    - Ellis Island steak and egg special was good for the price. Just don’t try to substitute anything on there, I could sense fear when they told me they couldn’t.

    - Crowds are picking back up as the day progresses during the week except in the mornings when it was still sort of a ghost town.

    - Uber and Lyft was hit or miss. Used a lot of cabs this trip and was happy with the results.

    - If you were the set of Uber passengers that pointed out that my shoes were in the backseat of a newer Toyota Camry, thank you. Yes, I was that drunk.

    - Not sold on the Mlife pre-check in process. It kept saying it wasn’t ready when it had actually been ready 2 hours earlier. Apparently I ended up with a better room style because I checked at the desk.

    - I LOVED the Vdara. Such a quaint environment right next to a lot of great things. Loved being able to wash clothes or reheat leftovers. But the main think was the refrigerator. Cold drinks and fresh ice was kinda cool.

    - Missed the reservation at Carmines, and still kind of bummed about that.

    - Also in the bummed out department is me missing the meet. Apologies all around for that.

    - Food and some gamble with @Astribling never disappoints. Just not enough of it this trip!

    - Oh yeah... There was no fast food this trip. Chipotle, don’t worry I still love you...

    All in all, it was a great trip. Made a killing at the Bellagio that only helped feed the Wynncore tables. So all in all I came out ahead, but the final number was down 400ish. Thanks for coming along with me!
