    We've all decided that Uber and Lyft are the way to go. $40 cab rides are now $14. So much better.

    Beer guys!

    How was the beer in Ellis Island?

    Two places I'd definitely recommend to beer guys:
    1) TAG Lounge at the Linq. Sit at the bar and play video poker. Tell them the type of beer you like and they'll recommend you something really good!
    2) Bangar Brewing: Brewery bar in Downtown. Freemont, right beside the Heart Attack Grill. No gaming in there, but well worth the visit to taste their beers.

    Good luck guys! Enjoy the trip!

    Wake up. call!


    Just my hunch. These guys were probably really hammered by 4 a.m. Ellis island can do that to a crew.


    I was hoping for a drunken pocket dump!

    I think they may not see the daylight hours today!

    I hope the Lyft driver got them to the MSS, okay.

    Seems to be a trend lately w/ the unfinished TRs. I'm sure they're OK and just got wrapped up "Vegasing".

    Today was kind of a low key day due to the previous night's activities.

    We got breakfast at Hash House a Go Go and played downtown at Fremont, Golden Nugget, Golden Gate, Plaza, and MSS. A win was nowhere to be found.

    This evening we went to Daisho Sushi for ayce sushi - highly recommended. We then went to the pinball hof for a little while.

    Tomorrow we're heading to CES. Afterwards we plan on going out gung ho again. Hopefully we'll have more chip porn by then.

    Until then, enjoy this absurdly large pork tenderloin courtesy of hhagg.

    Well Ellis Island craps was the last time the bankroll was trending up. I was keeping track for a while but the losses were getting sad and deep.

    Last night we Lyfted to the Aztec Inn, then Lyfted to Ellis Island then walked to the stage door. Ubered back downtown and continued the shenanigans. TWB and myself went til about 5am, grabbed some Loco Moco and Vodka redbull from 777 and went to bed. LOL

    I'm gonna toss in some disjointed notes.
    Aztec Inn is the same as I remember. They had a rear projection TV on a stage. $1 PBR on tap. Few game Kings and random slots.

    Had a light beer and a weiss at Ellis Island. Both good but I am no beer stop either. Apparently they have a new floor in the casino, looks good. Lots of new modern slots. Craps game went well and the dealers were fun. We ate at the BBQ. WOW really good food. Had the ribs and chicken combo. Great smoky flavor, beans were good, slaw was good, garlic bread was good. Highly recommended. Wait was about 20 minutes but one in our party won a slip at the players club kiosk to go to the front of the line, so like 3 minute wait. Other three prizes from the spin at the kiosk were a free beer.

    Westin "Max" casino is the saddest most depressing place. It's clean and not run down but the ultra lite music, the sad dealers, everything seems to vibe don't gamble here just go to sleep...

    Stage door was classic as always. A few rounds of $1 PBR and $3 Jager bombs were had. Just one bartender at this point but she was serving the crowd of about 20 fine and she was fun.

    Today breakfast at hhagg was stupid huge. Pork tenderloin Benedict.

    We just derped around Fremont pretty low key.

    Dinner at Diasho sushi and then we swung by the pinball hall of fame.

    I'm gonna dump some photos I've taken.

    Forgive me if this has been posted, but what's up with the thumbnail size photos from some people and large photos by others? Does it have to do with the mobile app used?

    I'm guessing so. I'm using tapatalk exclusively this trip and I am not familiar with the app so not sure if I am doing something wrong.

    Nothing to report today. Played 2 minutes of double diamond dollar slots at Binions on the way to the bus. There is a southbound SDX bus stop across from the Cal which I hadn't noticed before. Stabbed a quick ten bucks which is basically a massive win this trip. Spent all day at CES. Eating at 777 now.

    Looks like Aztec Inn is trying to lure in the CES crowd by changing their name to A Tec(h) Inn.
