    Ok. Somewhat emotional update for me.

    My father and I really bonded over Vegas. We made 4 trips together over the years. Staying at the Flamingo in a new Go Room at the time, twice at 4 queens and once at the Golden. We both found Let It Ride and it became our table game. But, one of the best memories we had was playing the treasure chest VP machines at MSS one year.

    We sat there for hours. I kept ordering Bud Lights and we had a big stack of scratch cards between us by the time we left those two machines. I remember maxing out the payoff credits that the machines could hold and they would just start spitting out quarters after some wins. By the time we left we each made a couple of hundred dollars and a shot load of $2 scratch tickets.

    One of my goals for this trip was to sit at a treasure chest game and hit a 4oak. I found an end 25 cent machine that was calling my name. I put in my card, cash and got out the little vial of my dads ashes I take with me to Vegas. I played a few hands and the cocktail waitress came by. Of course I had to order a Bud Light bottle. Once I got it I toasted my dad with the vial and said “Time for a 4oak”. The very next hand Boom!!! 4 Aces. The scratch card was a $2 winner. The treasure chest I picked was nothing major but it was a huge win for me. For the first time in a while I felt his presence.

    Overall I left up $20 from the machine but it was probably my best time I have had all week.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    By far the worst decision that a man could make Downtown. Just below naked Slotzilla. At least I hope you had the Düsseldorf mustard. Either way you’ll pay for this tonight.

    No no no. They are like little gifts from heaven wrapped in grease, onions and a card board box. Plus, you and everyone around you for hours get yo enjoy their great aroma as it escapes your ass all night long. Do I even have to talk about the famous third stage of sliders which includes the next morning and a toilet.

    God I love White Castle!!!!!

    Try the IPA. They will give you a short shot for taste. It’s not bad. Good luck.

    I've had the Stone IPA many times. It's a mainstay on tap for most bars in central Illinois. It's pretty good. Not my overall favorite but I haven been known to pick up a six pack of it every now and then.
