2/05 Booked a flight out of Shreveport,LA. got a sweet deal $92.50rt on Allegient, had a window seat on the right side of the plane, we were due to land at 9pm, if you have never seen the strip at night on a plane your missing out one of the coolest things, man that was awesome. LAS was very crowded, tram line was packed felt like cattle being hurded in mooo, taxi line was long, called the IP tell them we are on the way,being a diamond member and get free upgrades, went ahead and asked about one but the only rooms they had were with one king bed, no thanks (guys trip) they did give me a roll away free, on the strip side pretty nice for free. I understand the IP is not everyones cup of tea, but as far as being dirty and smelly i didnt see it sure its old maybe i am not that hard to please, i really like it. We got to the room great view, in need of a drink and starving got down stairs we each (4 of us)threw $50 on the BJ table ordered 2 beers for me. That lasted about 15 minutes orded 2 more beers and 50 on the table lasted a little longer about 20 minutes ok thats $100, time to eat got a beer for the road then called the other guys staying at Bill's (four of them). We trecked to Ellis island had the steak special great as usual, also had a beer with dinner, so thats 6 in about 2 hours feeling good won $20 back with the $5 match play. We all decided we are going to a strip club tonight hell yeah vegas baby. One of the guys called someone and a party bus shows up, had several more drinks and shots, heading to Seamless by this time i am gone, details are fuzzy i do remember being up front thowing several $'s on stage, left at 3:30 am headed back to Bill's dont remember much do remember it was packed. Then headed back to IP started playing a Wizard of Oz .01 machine i normally dont play .01 slots but i really like this one the flying monkey bonus is cool, pulled out $300. Starting to sobber up now, wife calls at 4:30(6:30) her time, yes honey miss you to, yeah i am being good, love you to. Sat down a BJ with my winnings betting 10 ,then start betting 25 then 50,( what the hell am i doing still up) way to drunk to be betting like this lost all of the 300 went up to the room at 7am vegas time passed out. i will get to day 2 later.
