    Frankie's Tiki Room. This is not a repeat post, we just liked it enough to come back again.

    I wish this was our Uber from Frankie's to Pizza Rock. Alas, we've got a Nissan Altima coming.

    Frankie's fucked me up! 13 skulls will do that to you. Heading to Pizza Rock now to catch the end of happy hour. Who knew fried green beans were delicious!

    UB40 and red wine can go f themselves. I was completely useless last night and walking dead this morning, but a progressive quad and a good beer got me back to myself.

    I'm lone wolf for next two days, but got my sunscreen ready for some linq pool time tomorrow and hope to keep y'all up to date.

    Today's goal: tell as many milfs as possible that I'm their mother's day present until I get slapped (or punched by an SO)!

    Gotta get that GG Manhattan before vacating downtown. Or two. I've still only two half donuts in my stomach. [​IMG]

    But yeah, that pose isn't the most flattering, but at least my calves are awesome (from carrying around the rest of me).

    See, I was assuming that "Portuguese sausage" and "French toaster combo" were some euphemisms for, well, something interesting. :wink2:


    I'm going to use "Dios mio, que tetonas ricas!" on my next trip!

    Nah, was just the food you can get at 777 in MSS after 2 am.

    I'm checked into the linq. This is like kafkaesque. That's all I can say to describe it. I'm drunk, I'm hungry and my phone has no charge. What do? I'm going to ditch phone for a while, I'm going dark!

    First foray out onto the strip in several years was a great success! First stop was linq total rewards to get a new card since haven't gambled on the strip in forever. Then walked to the back of Linq for the yard house. Drank a great green flash TIPA and then had porn roast (which was really pork chops imo, boneless or no if entire piece is breaded it's a chop, but delicious nonetheless) and then their signature orange cocktail to finish.

    Based on reports from GG bartender I slipped out the back of linq and headed to stage door to find out they indeed do have ten dollar shots of Don Julio 1942! If you fancy yourself a fan of tequila at all you gotta hit this deal up, I know I will again tomorrow.

    Then I walked through Cromwell and made the great mistake...err no, it was a great decision!, to buy in their 5 dollar, 100x odds game. Dice went around with me treading water but the second time Adam from Minneapolis had them and I put down ten dollar fire bet he went crazy with dice, covering all numbers with my come and eventually hitting 4 unique points (and he hit one or two multiple times) that my stack had grown to 860!

    I cashed out, played BP at Cromwell bar to break even while getting a couple more drinks. I headed back to the cage and saw the couple (Adam, your wife is hot!) still there. I put a hundred back down and taught them a bit about craps. I put ten on my own fire bet then started trying to hit all the numbers with the rest of my stack backing up number utilizing 100x odds. I got to the second number before sevening out, but it was an awesome time.

    Went out back door of the Cromwell to the Flamingo taxi entrance and could walk through easily to the linq, amusing some randoms with my drunken antics. Great time so far on the strip and only 4 hours in!

    I told Adam and Annabelle I'd buy them a drink at chandelier bar at 11 if you I see them. I'll probably need to eat one more time in next 3 hours, any ideas?

    That is an OUTSTANDING tidbit of information! I may have to take advantage of that when I am there in June.

    +1 for the Kafka reference. :). The Linq didn't write the book on luxury but I do think that CET got it right with the refurb of the IP and the pedestrian mall. I recommend Gordan Ramsey's fish and chips joint. The "bar car" is the only way to do the High Roller. Woot!

    Cosmo has lots of good choices if you don't want the GR Fish and Chips. I recommend tapas at Jaleo, burgers and boozy shakes at Holstein's, or the Golden Pigs and salt air margaritas at China Poblano.
