    It all started right here, at this very machine at the Golden Nugget, my man. Seriously. You introduced me to the joy of slotting. Remember how that Flintstones machine was our ATM for about three days?!? Great times. Yabba-Dabba-Doo!!!

    Lots and lots of hit and run slots tonight. Had a freaking blast!! Ended the day a whopping $23 dollars to the good. Fun, fun night.

    I thought this game would bring me some Luck o’ the Irish but the Leprechaun wasn’t in a giving mood.

    This game blows. Every time the dragon would come out for the Treasure Ball thingie it would always stop between the numbers. It happened at least 10 times so I never got to see what the whole Treasure Ball thing was all about.

    This game is a riot. I’ll definitely be adding it to my slot faves list. Hit two bonuses in my first ten or so spins and collected my $$$.

    This was another really fun game. There was a little older lady playing next to me betting $0.40 a spin who bought in for $20 and she was so excited about very minute line hits. I love seeing people having fun playing, especially when they are playing for small stakes and hanging in there.

    This one broke my heart. I had nine coins to get the bonus and came one shy of winning the grand which was over $13k. Notice all the small coin amounts? :bang: I’ve gotten a lot better bonuses betting $1.50 than this. Still, that was an exciting way to end the night. Good stuff.

    Too cold out for a drink at NUMB but it won’t be when I’m in Vegas in October.

    I always seem to have a fun time at Harrah’s. The piano bar was completely dark tonight but it was still fun stopping in for a bit.

    The day started out very slow but I had another really fun time tonight. Had a drink at the Cromwell and chatted with a really cool bartender about the local music scene. Made my way to Flamingo to keep my playing craps there alive but both tables were packed. I didn’t want to hang around and mulled playing Bubble Craps but decided not to cheapen the streak. Only two more nights to get over there....

    So far the gambling has turned out better than it seemed. My two big wins have saved my bacon. I’ve had more losing slot sessions than winning ones but I’m up $288 for the trip. After CW & Housekeeping tips, and other miscellaneous expenses, I’ll take it. The first seven days have flown by; can’t believe I’ve only two left.

    Breakfast for tomorrow is going to be three slices of cold pizza from Grimaldi’s and a chocolate eclair from Bouchon.
    Vegas baby!!

    With all of the VMB ALL STARS in town at the same time, it would make a colossal group photo.

    Merry Christmas Mike!
    Every day when I get to my computer and fire up VMB I go right to your posts and think, "What adventures is Mike going to take me on today" Thank you for taking your valuable Vegas time to take me (us) along on your trip...you are an excellent storyteller both with words and pictures, and I thank you for this very nice Christmas gift. God bless :santa:.
