    I think I win $299 on VP. Andiamo is saying they can’t serve me so I ordered it to go. Should be free. Drank too much and slept too little. I’m going to hit the BJ tables hard at sine longv tonight. Have to break even!

    Andiamo steak something, pasta something and a side. Payed in the HL BJ $50 limit and wins. Quick 1.2k. I’m eating in the Vue bar since Andiamo wouldn’t give me a table. Good choice!

    I accidentally sent this to Sonya instead of on the trio report. It’s a win but for how much and how long we’ll never know.

    I’m guessing you started with a random green chip that you drunkenly forgot about... :thumbsup:

    Best spliced quote ever! Absolutely loving this report!

    Your written mannerisms, BR (well, half), preference for craps, morning/day drinking bourbon, a little bit of thc but not a lot, pedialyte purchase, can't hit a parlayed hardway to save your life, fact that you prefer take out breakfast on a hangover morning, etc..... really sounds like myself.

    I'm all in on this trip report!

    Carry on and good luck my fellow degen!!!

    Good morning all. What a fun first day in Vegas. I go a little bit too hard after not being here since March. I’ll try and recap the evening from my fuzzy memory, pictures, and pocket dump.

    I arrived at the Golden gate last night and redeemed my $200 promo chip. They fluke only give me two $100 chips. I asked for $25 chips and was denied. I sat down in the high limit area at a six deck $25 table. I was pretty lucky with the chips and converted them to $500 in blacks. They are lost until you lose chips.

    The guy at the table with my pushed a $1,600 hand when both him and the dealer got a black jack. He threw his beer and was escorted out lol.

    I built my stack up to $700 then went broke betting $100 a hand. I bought in for another $500 then $100 and $100 to cover doubles. I ended up cashing out a yellow chip for a $300 profit.

    I redeemed my $125 in match plays at the D from my offer, spirit boarding pass, and the Richard Wilk offer. I think I converted those to $350 cash.

    Here is where the night got blurry. I was double fisting Amstel lights and Mcallen 12’s or makers Marks playing in the D’s high limit area. I think I played at a $25 six deck table the entire time. I have a note that I was rated $225 a hand. I’m really lucky that I didn’t lose all the cash in my wallet yesterday. I don’t have the bankroll to even be betting $100 a hand.

    I tried to get a table at Andiamo sometime around 6. They didn’t even offer to put me in a wait list. I’m going to say they don’t want solo diners. A couple behind me was told a 2.5 hour wait.

    I ordered a 12 oz(?) filet, a cheesy rigatoni dish, and whatever side that was. I still have no idea. It was served cold.

    My Uber app says I came back to Bally’s at 7 21. I know I played blackjack and three spins at roulette at $100 a spin.

    I have my marker in my wallet so I must have walked over to Paris to pay it off last night. After counting my cash this morning I’m only down $641 which is awesome. I easily could be down 3-4K with how I was betting.

    Mask usage was almost 100% yesterday. Social distancing was ok. Most people attempted to keep some distance. Definitely not six feet. Vegas definitely isn’t as social for solo travelers as it usually is. I really miss bar top VP

    It was difficult to get on craps tables yesterday. The GG was $10 minimums and the D was $15. I was surprised that Flamingo was $25 on all three tables. I didn’t really pay attention to black jack limits but all $25 tables were 3/2.

    My head hurts slightly today and my face feels puffy. I don’t think room service is an option at Bally’s I’m not hungry but want to order a few mimosas and beers to drink while in bed.

    I have no plans for today. I might go to the pool for an hour. I should spend my $25 resort credit at Cosmo. It might be too hot out to eat Ramen. I’m going to try and keep my bets smaller today but we all know how that goes. Drinking heavily is my only set in stone plan

    I had to buy a beer for the first time in years in this town. I’m playing VP at Bally’s and haven’t seen a cocktail server in the 30 minutes since I’ve been here. I paid with RC’s but it still feels wrong. I’m thinking if getting a crepé for breakfast before going to the pool. [​IMG]

    Has the VP area at Ballys been crowded? How about the overall casino?

    There’s only one other person playing right now. Last night Bally’s seemed fairly busy. Most of the table games were open and full. It’s really quiet right now.

    Thanks for the updates on GG and the D. Hoping they are lower Weekday mornings.

    Did you at least enjoy the dancing dealers, or had too many to remember?

    I didn’t see the dancing dealers much. At the GG your back is to the dancers and at the D my view was obstructed.

    Yeah, I used RCs to buy a Truly at the Linq gift shop the other day. Felt wrong having to pay for booze in Vegas. In your case, doubly so since you were playing. That's not right.

    Back in the black. Still not drunk service. I’m almost empty. One 16 ounce beer and I’m buzzed again!
