    I've never been to Back Stage Deli in LV. I have been to the one in NYC though, I admit, about 10 years ago. Howie Mandel was ordering a sandwich at the counter when I was there, but I digress. The sandwiches we got in NYC were literally 5" high of all meat. That's what made them famous. What they're doing in LV is an abomination of their claim to fame. I hope they're not putting together scrimpy things like that in NYC.

    Finally got in our room. Now just relaxing with a cocktail looking out over the strip. 4 hours of slots and down 300. Could have been a lot worse. Thanks to a couple hits to keep me rolling.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Nice digs. 4 hours of slots and only down $300 isn't bad at all. Don't forget to ask a host for back-end comps.

    What a day. No hand pays but some nice hits to keep me/us going. We enjoyed dinner at Lemongrass. Tomorrow is dinner at the Palm. Really looking forward to that.

    Gambling wise I'm down $560 after hammering the slots for at least 8 hours. Made gold mlife. Not sure if that means much but it's something. Jackpots tomorrow. I feel it.

    Thanks to everyone following. I'm doing my best to update as I can!
