    Also a host just walked up and introduced himself, gave me a card, and asked if I needed anything. These local places give you a lot of attention for very little play.

    I love a bar that gives me snacks. Plus they let me pick anything on the menu under $52 as an entree. And they have outlets built into the bar. My favorite.

    My relatives’ flight was delayed, so I had a bit of time to kill before heading to airport to pick them up. Checked out a couple new places: Barley’s and Wildfire Sunset. Nothing much to see here. Might come back to Barley’s at some point to try the beer. Did win $15 vulturing Ultimate X, so there is that.

    Totally out of order on the posts, sorry. I ended my day at Rampart down $200 on $6,000 coin in. The hotel seems very nice. Dinner at Hawthorne was great. Not sure what it takes to get offers here, but I’d take them up on it for sure.

    Bringing stuff in from the car, I tossed my water bottle into my purse. Except the bottle wasn’t closed. My phones are fine, luckily. But my bankroll took a direct hit.

    There’s probably a clever joke in here about laundering money. But I’m too sober to make it.

    I had Barley's Pumpkin at Palace Station and it was decent. But when that's tied for your best beer on untappd with a global rating of 3.57/5, that's not good. Really good beers are much closer to 4/5.

    It's going to be a quiet few days. Work is the worst. But it pays the bills and builds the bankroll.

    Thinking I might sneak out to Skyline for a couple hours to chase the progressive once I'm done with work.

    I almost always take my laptop with me to Vegas. Never know when a client may want something, and as you said, it pads the bankroll!!

    Hope you get some time to sneak away!

    Sneak away I have.

    It turns out where I was yesterday wasn’t Wildfire Sunset, but rather Wildfire Casino and Lanes which happens to be on Sunset? Why are so many road in Henderson named Sunset. I literally turned left from Sunset onto Sunset earlier. Checked out the actual Wildfire Sunset - small local. Nothing to bring me back absent a great promotion cropping up.

    I love Skyline more than is reasonable.

    Home for dinner - uncles cooking salmon. Then hot tub + wine.
