    We do too. I like Vegas but it's become such a nightclub town and you always have to deal with extremely drunk and obnoxious people on club nights and even the morning after since I go have coffee and play about 0630. You used to get some of that crowd when they had the club at the Beau but even with that, the younger crowd just seemed better behaved and more polite in Biloxi. But they closed it and put in the new Sports Bar which was a great addition if you play VP.

    The sports bar there is nice and roomy and smoke free. We played there yesterday evening and the drink service was great. A fresh drink would show up as soon as mine neared empty.

    I did play some Ultimate Texas Holdem for the first time last night. It was a $15 table and I was very nervous about playing. I had practiced a lot online and I let the table know I was a rookie. I really floundered to start with but played for about an hour and kinda settled in. I learned I'm going to need to be near the center of the table to get a good look at the cards.

    The attitude is good. About gata-bounting for the fix.
    Gambling in Texas? (except for Milton) We got nothin’. :cry:
    Odds are bad :thumbsdown: in Oklahoma and Louisiana for vp. But they’re proximity wise very close. :thumbsup:
    I just love vegas and wish somehow I lived in arizona and drove it easily. :headbang:

    I used to play all table games (BJ, PGP and some Roulette) and no VP or slots but got tired of the house almost always grinding your money out of you with real no chance to win some reasonably big money. I haven't sat at a table in 4 years and don't miss it a bit.

    This is a great TR, appreciate you sharing. The Mississippi gulf is an area I've always wanted to go to, but never been. I think I'd also want to take in a minor league game at the baseball park. I go to New Orleans often and love the food, I would imagine it's somewhat similar in Biloxi from the pics you shared (which look great btw).

    Have fun at the Borg next month, I may be there as well.

    Ty, I have been gone on a football trip for the last four days but I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your TR. I hope you had a good time at Adventures. The Mardi Gras marching club I belong to has our weekly meetings at Adventures every Wed. A couple of the bartenders there serve as Banner Girls who carry our banner out in front of us as we march. Hope you can get back down here soon. Cruisin' The Coast goes from Oct 3 thru Oct 10. If you like classic cars, USA Today says that Cruisin' is the number one car show in America.

    $15 minimum in BILOXI??? I'd be nervous too. Any casino outside of the Vegas Strip should still offer this game for $5 imo.

    Nice report!

    Every time I walked past the craps tables they were $25. Morning, noon, and night. Sometimes they had 4 tables going.

    Beau is the Bellagio of Biloxi. I've only seen minimums below $25 on anything a few times. Some of the seedier places in the area have 5/10 minimums even post covid.
     
    It's been too long!

    My favorite place to eat when I'm in Biloxi. Such a cool vibe and great people!
