    Kudos to my bartender at the International Bar. I left for a minute to use the restroom (urgently, distracted me from important details). Halfway there, I was run up on by some dude hollering "Sir! Sir!". Oh JFHC, I thought, I sure hope he doesn't want me to get on the monorail with him. Not so much, it my bartender chasing me down. I left a $100+ ticket in my machine. I'd rather tip him a Jackson any day before letting some lowlife cash my ticket out. I think he's now my favorite bartender here. Not as cute as my previous favorite, but man... That's service done right.

    Trivia moment: The voices from that segment were actually a married couple who were both employed as announcers at LAX, I believe.

    11pm, and I'm up $20 for the night. That has to be some kind of record stability wise (horses, $0.25 STP and $1 BP progressive the whole time)

    Well, it's approaching 11:30. Time to go to bed? Yeah, that would be wise. But I've rarely been accused of being wise. Circus Circus sounds like a 'good idea'. I'm a bit concerned about the walk from here, maybe I've become a wuss. Oh well, an $8 Uber ride sounds like good insurance. Never take insurance, 'they' say. I'd hazard a bet that 'they' weren't recently weirded out by some lady at the monorail.

    I'm guessing it was the suit.
    Total chick magnet. :wink2:

    I'd like to think so... In this particular case it wasn't a particularly welcome attraction.

    Aces and Eights at Circus. Drink service happened about one minute after I sat down... That's nice.[​IMG]

    Wow. Cocktail service here, at Circus of all places, at a positive EV machine of all things, is happening at the perfect pace. Now all I need is a royal on this thing, $0.50 progressive at $2190.76 :)

    This is pretty much bucket style perfection. I'm being rapidly over-served, at a run down +EV VP machine in an obscure corner of a low end casino, in a nice suit, next to a curtain and sign procaliming in all caps that the RESTROOM IS CLOSED FOR REMODEL.[​IMG]

    Finished up the evening up $200 from VP and craps, in a bit of drunken debauchery that Sarno would have been proud of, in his own original joint. Time to get back to Westgate, to bed, and be in halfway decent shape for my final day in town. I'm very close to declaring Circus Circus my favorite casino in town. Too bad the no-mailed me after my royal... I'd stay here on solo trips in a moment.

    Well... Roulette caught my eye on the way out of Circus. Made $35, took Uber back to Westgate. I should go to bed. But first... A bit of quarter 8/5 BP action.

    Bartender at Westgate is again great, this guy is super personable and the first to inquire as to my profit/loss.

    Aaand... I just got quite openly propositioned by a hooker. 500x more comfortable turning that down than escaping monorail crazy lady. And if I had to choose... This one was about 100x more attractive.

    After that brutal first night, tonight put me back close to even. Sleeping in tomorrow, it's 3am here.[​IMG]
