    Good times. I think some of the shoe people are foreigners too who can't get that pair at home. For whatever reason, shoe shopping, WalMart, and Harbor Freight are popular must-do for a lot of folk from across the pond. Bummer I didnt catch up with anyone today but I did catch up with Kevin several times lol!

    Oh yeah - that motherfuckin earthquake? I was about to win on Buffalo Diamond but then the earthquake happened. I told @Sonya that shit was going down (it was waves. It was nuts.) and then it stopped and I realized I hadn’t drank as much as I thought!

    Then I proceeded to kick ass on the B52’s slot and wish that there was a Cure slot (and Sonya said why. Pfffft).

    Kick BUTT TR Luck!!!! That Ross saved our fanny when our luggage was lost/delayed. (Apparently I have a curse on luggage being lost/delayed/stolen!)

    So wish I could have crashed the slot pull and harassed you and Chuck and Mike and Sonya and others I might not know were going...as I know you all tore it up.

    Have a BLAST and make Vegas cry "Uncle"

    That's pretty much what happened to me. Thought I was about to pass out or something, which is weird because I don't do that. Then when I saw the machines shaking against the wall, I was like oh...but it's scary being under the biggest building here...should I leave? I don't even know. But I was literally in the middle of winning a good bonus on a dollar machine so I was like fuck it if it's my time it's my time.

    Keller and Andes......if you added the French Keller you’d have my trifecta of fav man chefs. This was my dream food trip. My cardiologist would have her own heart attack if I went to a meat restaurant. I want that cotton candy sooooooo bad, And WC sliders too? That made it perfect.

    Safe travels home. Thanks for the ride on the food train.

    @breanna61 i will explain Kevin shortly ;)

    Last night was fucking wacky. I could not sleep. I kept waking up from nightmares, waking up in a cold sweat, then trying to sleep and having the nightmare again. What the fuck?!?!

    But now it’s my last day and I’ve got a couple hours to make the most of it! Got $25 “Konami” FP for NYNY, gonna see what the can do for my birthday.

    Gonna cruise by Eataly too.

    The birds are baaaaack!
