    Not enough wins to cover the losing. Back to the room for more cash once my beer arrives. Maybe a cigar on the terrace before i comeback down.

    Scott, I believe the rebound royal, following the $1198.75, was hit by @wasilla at GG. I met him today, and both the timing and amount appear to work out.

    That would make at least three of those royals in a row for VMB’ers!

    No good gambling. Enjoying a beer and a cigar on the terrace. We’ll see if i gamble more. The midas touch from earlier in the week has turned into the Charmin touch.

    Cigar was good. Could have done without the constant N word chatter coming from the next balcony.

    i thought mask usage at Cosmo on the floor was pretty good. Employees were asking folks to put their masks back on regularly. I noticed a lack of mask wearing when i looked into the bar areas at Chandelier and Clique. Youngens. I feel bad for the club girls. All dressed in their fanciest skimpy dresses and having to wear a mask. I imagine it is not how they envisioned their ensemble. Too bad. Wear the masks motherf***ers.

    Last day tomorrow. We’ll see what happens but gambling might be shutdown to preserve a big win. Then again i may go full degen in the evening. A new tattoo may be in order as well if the shop is open in Miracle Mile. Will have to check now.

    Healthy breakfast. Coffee, drip drop and Boston Creme donut. Should be good for a couple hours till the sugar wears off.

    Making the slog down to Luxor, Excalibur and MGM for myKonami free play. It’s hot but it’s nice to be outside and able to breathe free for a bit. Hoping for a big hit.

    Nothing major at either MGM or Aria. $7.50 and $26.25. Up a total of $217.25 on $100 fsp plus some exercise so a win.

    when i walked through Crystals is on the way back i noticed a line for Gucci. They were limiting folks and taking temperatures before you could enter. Only store i saw doing that.

    Cosmo is busy. Lots of folks in Block 16 eating and waiting to go into the dayclub. Most everyone i walked past was wearing a mask. Maybe not properly but it was there. Cooling off in the room for a while then I’ll head down to Chandelier for the meetup at 2. Hoping to meet some more VMBers this trip.

    Had a nice meet with @UnicornTX. Thank you for the beers. Tried our luck on a small group pull. $100 ea in $5 9/6 DDB in the high limit area. Best hit was a straight so no massive hand pay. Didn’t double up so a loser again. In the room for a bit before heading across the street for a little ink.

    Ink is done. I think for all future trips I’m going to siphon off 10% of my winnings for a new tattoo. I was never a huge fan but after the first one I really am starting to enjoy them. I won’t be getting a full sleeve or my face done but a few select things that are special to me. Anyway today’s is below. It looks angry because it is. Not as painful as I thought it would be. Next I need to decide on dinner. Is there anything good here at Cosmo?

    Because I’m a glutton for punishment. A high limit DDB session. $500 double or nothing. What could go wrong.

    Looks pleasant out on your balcony. Are you getting takeout and bringing it back or can you get that room serviced? Good luck!
