    Folks,

    Pocket drop is $1730-somethin' and I brought $4500 with me. I will take that for a full week here (even though the Houston Astros and Mike Zimmer f'ed me, really).

    I don't take responsibility for my own actions when it comes to gaming. It's always somebody else's fault when I lose.

    It was great to get back and I stayed in my two favorite, go-to properties.

    I think everyone has posted enough on how things are out here that I can't add too much to it. Honestly, the only negative is that there are a lot of good places to eat that aren't open at all or are primarily THU-SUN. That's really the only negative (aside from the Houston Astros existing).

    I've come out here for every Super Bowl the last twenty plus years, but doubtful I'll make it this time around. Never say never, but it will be unlikely.

    A buddy of mine back in Virginia still has two work related events scheduled here in March and we've discussed just renting a house for three and a half/four weeks. I'm guessing that will be the next jaunt.

    I'm working on getting my British passport and am giving very, very serious consideration to moving to Barcelona next Spring. Initially for a year and see what happens after that.

    If I don't make this March event happen, this could be zee last Trip Report. It's probably time to move on anyway.

    Thanks a bunch for checking in and following along. It was great to see you again @MikeOPensacola . The time was too short (but at least I finished my meal).

    Be good y'all.

    Move to Barcelona! My parents moved to England (from East Coast) at the age of 46, lived there for 8 years. A transformative experience.

    Love it! You might want to look into "investing" in penny/OTC stocks, where effectively that is the mantra there too!

    Great report!

    Luxor on MON Night. Only the central bar was open (no shops or lounges operational).

    The bartender said I had to sit to order and he shot me down when I asked if it was OK to take it to the casino.

    Crabby pants said no and I immediately left the resort.

    On a better note, Option D sent me a picture of her new pup she picked up on MON.

    I guess it's cute, I haven't paid too much attention to the animal, honestly.
