    O’Sheas tables are closed. Glad to see they weren’t replaced though. They emptied it out a month or so ago, looks like they just cleaned the carpet! Put down $200 at Linq craps, $15 min. Hit one point & 1 come bet. Too many poker playing bros around though. Left with $75 just cause the table wasn’t any fun. One vodka lemonade though. Headed back to flamingo.

    Do you have the receipt that shows the total amount charged at B&M from last time? I always match up my receipt with the amount from my credit card charges when I look online. But even if you don't, hopefully the original server/bartender is there. I would think he should still remember giving a free glass of port due to a fly being in your wine glass. It's the principle.

    I’m exhausted & writing this from in bed!

    Airport -

    I got a great video (that I won’t post) of the airport Karen having a meltdown at our gate because they asked her to verify that her purse (which was unusually large) fit in the little “check your bag size” thing at the gate. It fit. She was still unhappy. I don’t know why.


    Flight -

    I’m lucky I wasn’t arrest for murder on the flight because the 4 year old behind me was a nightmare. Shortly after takeoff, his mother fell asleep and the rest of the plane was in charge of her child. He spent the entire flight kicking my seat and slamming the tray table up & down. Not his fault. 100% his mother’s fault. Bring something for your kid to do, entertain them yourself, OR DONT FLY WITH THEM!


    Post flight -

    LAS was quite busy. 75% mask compliance. Luggage took a little longer than normal but our’s probably went on the plane first (since we bag dropped late), so it came off last. Bell was waiting for us & excellent.


    Check in -

    Diamond check in at Paris was open & we got our rooms around 1. We have an “end hallway king” again. Layout is a little different than usual, bed is across from the windows, which I don’t love, loses some useful space. Bathroom is NICE.


    Margaritaville was very good. Added a little salt to my burger & it was great. Cooked a perfect medium. Lime In Da Coconut might be my new favorite Margaritaville drink!

    Craps at Linq sucked. Then went back to flamingo, blackjack wasn’t bad. Up & down. Bought in for $200 at a $15 craps table at flamingo. One other person there. He rolled a dozen times then sevened out, didn’t hit any points. I rolled an 8….then an 8 again. ITS THAT EASY! Then a bunch of other people bought in. Packed table. Next come out roll, a 4. They upped the tabled min to $25. WTF. Next roll…..7. I don’t get it. Happened to me at Flamingo in July. Midday on a Monday??? $25! AT FLAMINGO??? You’re not fancy, stop trying to be.

    After getting pissed at Flamingo, walked back to Ballys, talked to my MIL. She was still up about $1500. Nice. Played her machine while she went to the bathroom. It doesn’t like me as much as it likes her! Ordered a couple drinks - vodka lemonade for me, Jack & coke for Dan. Few minutes later the server comes back around….”how was that Jack & coke??” Dan is like “ well…um…not great” and she said “that’s cause I accidentally gave you straight coke! Here’s a real Jack & coke!” We laughed.

    Wandered over to Paris. Considered the sportsbook. It’s really not a great place to watch a game. So we went to Burger Brasserie. Started out just at a tall table next to the big screen. At half time we moved to the short side of the bar & ordered chicken tenders to split. Pretty good for just chicken tenders. Colts game went EXACTLY how I thought it would go. Seriously. Up 22-3 late in the third, I called exactly how they would implode. Lost in OT. Shocking.

    After the game, moseyed back to Paris. Met up with Ann. We were all ridiculously tired so we got a couple drinks from our Diamond drink printout things & bought in at the $15 craps table. They had $15, $25, & electronic open. The table SUCKED. Quickly lost $150 over 4 shooters & took my last $50 & ran. ALL the open blackjack this evening was $25. All of it. I usually play $25-$50/hand anyway but wow. First, I like the option to play less. Second, ITS STILL 6-5. That’s fucking robbery!

    After craps we just decided to turn in. Went back upstairs, unpacked, & now getting ready to pass the fuck out.


    Tomorrow -

    Mon Ami Gabi at 9:30

    Then check out Caesars Palace minimums. If those suck, check Mirage. I really don’t like the mirage casino that much so if we don’t want to stay there, we’ll head north to TI. I haven’t been inside TI since before I was 21. So this’ll be fun! I used to be able to find the arcade with no issues!

    Lunch - TBD

    Dinner - B&M at 7p


    Good night everyone!

    That's a great way to get an extra tip when the cocktail waitress is honest and makes something wrong a right. Great service!

    I’m following this report extra closely. In a few weeks we’re heading out for our first stay at Paris. We’ve always stayed at Caesars and eaten breakfast at Mon Ami every trip. While waiting for the patio, we always lose money on the slots there lol.
    Hope today is a GREAT day for you!

    Watching closely....heading to Paris in a couple of weeks. Question: At Diamond Checkin did you request an upgrade? We have a Burgundy Room w/ Eiffel View picked already....are the corner rooms better (if we can't get an upgrade). Have a wonderful vacation...also, what are the minimums at the carnival games (3 card, flush, criss cross, etc.)

    Ill post some more room photos later. I love the Paris end hallway rooms! They’re not really a suite or studio but a bit bigger than a standard room. Similar to a petite suite but no wet bar. This one has a substantially nicer shower than the previous ones we’ve stayed in.

    enjoying your TR
    good game to watch and i had a feeling ravens would win although it didnt looked like it almost the whole entire game(i was surprised..colts suck right? im more a green bay fan but i also know they normally not win the superbowl..same as our dutch soccerteam never winning the worldtitle!:() too bad you didnt try a burger at the burger brasserie(had the best burger ever there a couple of years ago yeah a bit more pricey but definately worth it)
    anyways good luck with all and the pictures look great
    i stayed two times at Paris at the calais suite and that was great loved it
    too bad you will not make that Karen famous(always love watching those on you tube)
    curious how the matter at B&M will be resolved
    good luck on the gambling Smerrian will definately advice you to play craps at Bally's :)

    Gangling has not been going well today. After breakfast we played $10 blackjack at Paris. It went up to $15 right around noon. Afterwards, walked over to CP. All blackjack $25 or higher. All craps $25 or higher. Crossed the street back to O’Sheas. All tables still closed. :( Cut through Linq to Harrahs. I did HORRIBLE at blackjack. $15 table, went through $160 without winning. a. single. hand. Omg. Bought into craps for $150. Table was just too chaotic. Everyone betting everything. It was a new shooter - he rolled 8, 6, 7. Left immediately. For the past 1.5ish hours I’ve been watching Dan play Free Bet Blackjack. Which I should love, because I double and split everything possible (usually). But I really hate the “dealer pushes on 22” rule. So I don’t play. Cocktail service at Harrahs has been fantastic. Our server comes around about every 5-7 minutes. It’s been a really fun table & Dan’s doing well. Texted Ann, she’s back at Ballys and says she’s doing bad. But to her that just means she’s only winning $100 at a time instead of $700 at a time :goofy:

    dinner at B&M at 7. Gonna change clothes, powder my nose, etc around 6.
    Looking forward to telling everyone what happens there :feedme: :feedme: :feedme:
