    I forgot to mention, thanks to yesterday’s great craps sessions, we have all of our initial gambling budget set aside and have been playing on “free” money! I’ve been paying cash for food and stuff so that’s also accounted in there.

    Also last night when we were playing craps, one of the hosts came up and introduced himself to allen. Always nice to be recognized when your winning the casinos money.

    PSA:

    If you’re gambling and order a drink, think about ordering a water too. Even if you don’t drink it, you can pass it along to someone who needs it. I did that twice yesterday to the same guy at different points. He was so happy both times.

    I saw a guy with a dog, who’s feet were wrapped because of the hot cement and I wished I had a water bottle to give to him.

    Now carrying around two mini bottles in my purse, just incase.

    I know, we both know! But I was running late (from my last minute gambling) so we grabbed the cab.

    In all of our trips this is the first tunnel experience and it left a bad taste in my mouth. Grrr. So yes, Uber and Lyft only next time!

    I know it’s frustrating because I’ve been there and done that. Just let it go, it’s over and done with. We all learn from that. Thanks for posting your report!

    Where was this? I desperately need to know. For home fry related reasons.

    Thanks for bringing us along on your trip. And my condolences on your loss. I hope you were able to both have some fun and honor your father's memory (it certainly seemed from the outside like you did both.)

    How was Collective Soul? Was it still hot out during the concert?

    The reverse tunnel. Yikes. I didn't think they usually pulled that move often.

    We got tunneled for the first time ever last May from the airport to Planet Hollywood but it was with Lyft. I didn’t complain since the fare was less than normal even though the route was five miles longer. Sorry about the loss of your dad. I lost my dad earlier this year and still miss him every day.

    Sorry about your loss but so happy to see you had a great trip. Love to see Craps winnings - feel free to tell the Craps story - I can listen to Craps talk all night!

    They sounded great! We only stayed for a couple of songs. But it was a fun thing to do for free. It’s great how Fremont does those concerts

    It wasn’t hot out since it was under the canopy and the sun had already set.
