    Battled this blackjack dealer for my matchplay. We pushed four hands in a row. Then she finished me like a fat kid finishes cake. She had 21 and I had 14. Darn it. Foiled again like aluminum

    We are back at the hotel finally. My gf is going to take a bath in the jucuzzi suite and take a nap. I’m going to degen for a couple hours before dinner. Tonight the plan is going to this Ramen place near Ballys and some glow in the dark mini golf.

    The walk from Signature to MGM Casino isn’t too bad. I have heard people says it’s 15-20 minutes. It took us 5 minutes from our room to the casino. We were in tower 1

    The last time I ate at the Fremont buffet was for seafood night because my brothers wife wanted crab legs. Barely made it back to the strip on the Duece before losing my cookies. Enjoying the report.

    I think it's about another 5 minutes to tower 2 though.

    I LOVE playing Bingo in Vegas. I've never played it anywhere else actually so don't feel embarrassed about it! And in some bingo halls, like at Palace Station where I typically play, using the machines is the norm. Some people do a mix of machines and paper. I like the machines and reading the Bingo Bugle (great monthly Bingo newspaper that has national bingo news and promos and cruises -- no, I am not kidding) or a Vegas magazine while drinking some good alcohol. No way could I keep track of a lot of bingo cards if I were playing paper. Maybe just a couple of times in the past few years have I played with paper bingo cards.

    There is no strategy; it's pure luck. But if they are playing machines, they could be playing a lot of cards, which increases of course the chances of winning.

    We are at the forum shops now. This is like the song that never ends but it’s shopping. It’s raining in Vegas too. On the bright side, I found a bar in the forum shops that had the Heat and warriors game, and I have the Heat +13.5.

    Mini golf at the twilight zone was fun. We had a two for one coupon with the ACG. We played match play instead of stroke play because it was easier to keep track of. I absolutely destroyed her, I won 17 of the 18 holes. She won 1.

    She had fun tho and we got lots of fun pictures.

    I sooooo feel your pain!
    Made the mistake of giving my Mom some gift certificates for Ross......She tried on over 60 items of clothing.
    I wanted to kill her, but she was having a blast.....kinda hard to burst her happy bubble.
    I stayed with her (heaping) cart and put items in groups for her to try on so I could get out of there sooner.
    It took her just under 4 hours....good thing we ate at Tacos El Gordo first.

    So it was a pretty fun night. After twilight golf we ended up playing the horse racing game with the toy horses. I put in $20 and after an hour, we had it up to $210 after just getting a quinella every time and getting lucky the odd times. Lots of fun. I got some IPA beers and my girlfriend got multiple Shirley temples (she doesn’t drink).

    Tmw morning, she is going to the Spa at MGM, and I’m going to redeem the match plays at Ellis Island and Hooters. Might also place some future bets at Hooters because they are William Hill. Toronto Blue Jay futures at William Hill Sportsbook is 250:1, compared to M Life Casinos who have them at 100:1. Craziness.

    Then we have the time travel presentation tmw for all that free stuff. Never been to one of these things before, I hope they don’t kidnap us.
