    A few pics from the pool. I love this pool. Very relaxing. Drink was $12. Or $12.50 and refills for $9.00. They also have an ice and water station and allow you to bring in your own cup. Bonus . Temps are around 90 for today and the next few days. Feels awesome.
    Gonna go down and grab the shuttle to the strip. They are using a bigger bus but it only picks up about every 45 minutes..WTF. It used to be about every 20 minutes or so. Wastes valuable Vegas time dammit!

    Supper was at Baliwick for happy hour. Couple Blue Moons and a burger. Was just ok, not worth ordering again, even at HH prices. Bun was not good at all, threw that aside almost right away[​IMG]

    Friday: today would be our 33rd wedding anniversary. Trying not to think about that today.
    Gambling took a dump last night. I think I went to bed -$275 or so.
    Started out cool again this morning, but found a Quick Hits game that showed me some love. First spin:

    I used to always get that ham steak for breakfast at the Gold Coast before bowling sweeps until I realized it made my fingers swell to where they wouldn't hardly fit in the ball. Still looks tasty.

    UUUGGGGGG, Had a decent evening including MANY many beers. :beer: Down about $280 for the trip so far. Not bad :p

    So I wake up to the sound of knocking at my door this morning. I chose to ignore, who in hell knocks at 2:20 in the morning???? This was followed by the phone ringing, so I just ignore again thinking its just a well-being check. Got up to pee and its DAYLIGHT out. It's 2:30 IN THE AFTERNOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy shit!! No idea what time I came to bed last night :drunk: Slept past check-out time. The only plan I did have was to do brunch at Border Grille this morning at 11:00. Damn. Instead, I opted for a nice spicy jambalaya from Big Al's Oyster Bar.

    Grabbed an Uber to head DT. The next 5 nights will be staying at The D. At check in I panicked as I couldn't find my drivers license. I about dumped my whole purse looking for the thing. So I head over to the couch and opened up my suitcase. It was then that I remembered that I had put it in my bag for the pool the day before. WHEW!!!!:peace:

    I'll post some pics in a few.....

    So ..
    . went to bed early lady night. Hit up a few Fremont casinos with absolutely NO luck. Just picked up sammich from Walgreens for supper. Spent about $175 with no play at all.

    Today up and at am. Went looking for Donut Bar, didnt find so off to a different place Rachel' Kitchen. Sign says open at 7. Am, nope., that didn't work. Dann, ended up at Fremont Champagne brunch. While not great, it filled the void. Can't go wrong with a made to order omelet.

    Last night I decided to tackle Golden Gate and The Plaza today and show them a little love. Let the room with $300 and came back with $320. So not a bad day and plenty of beers
