    Friday night recap:

    Slotted all around D, GG, and Circa! Drink service I noticed is extremely fast compared to the strip! The strip is short staffed with the March Madness crowed meanwhile the small footprint of Downtown casinos make the rounds for drinks more quick.

    Gambling at night started great! Low rolled at GG until I had one, two, three drinks and then went to Circa where I kept doing good at every machine for two hours. After the two hours I started to feel too lucky and had to donate to the sexy new casino fund called “Circa”.

    Built up a $350 tito to about $600 in the 2 hours of play in the HL room at Circa. After leaving the moolah machine I jumped across three different HL machines to the result of minus $500 in 15 minutes. That’s okay! Scared money don’t make money so pop in $200 more on $5 Lightning Link to see it disappear in another 10 minutes lol I think I am satisfied with the coin in at this point and am expecting a call from Derek Stevens lol yeah right :D will be back at Circa Saturday night!

    Ended the night trying a craft sour ale which was okay. I am really enjoying being able to see the Fremont Street experience screen from my room at GG. Tomorrow I am moving to the D and will hopefully be status matched to their highest tier by then. I applied yesterday for the status match and it hasn’t been updated yet.:popcorn:

    Downtown is extremely fun! However Saturday night was crazy packed to the point I felt I was at a music festival such as EDC. Had to grab my partners hand and snake through the crowd on fremont street. Often felt like a maze with large groups of people blocking large portions of the street! I have a video I will try to upload!

    I been enjoying Vegas in the moment. My parents went back home yesterday by 8am and missed the Vegas to LA traffic.

    Todays plans is to play more at Circa and reservation at Andiamo’s. I have some nice slot porn from the new Crazy Rich Asians Mighty Cash slot machine! Will update on that soon! Will try to unload information and catch up.

    March Madness gambling was a bust! :cry:UCLA upset Alabama. If they didn’t I’d be up a lot more and happier today lol next is betting on the Elite 8 which has three pac 12 basketball teams :eek:

    is it "it's packed because we've been socially distancing and avoiding people for 12 months and all of a sudden what would have been just a normal crowd prior to last march seems like a crushing horde" packed or is it just actually packed?

    Saturday morning I had prescheduled my Lyft ride and it arrived right on time! I didn’t have to wait at all around 10am! Slotted around the strip before my reservation to wicked spoon. Had a few decent hits here and there but none on video poker up until that moment.

    Small bet on mighty cash but I was on a hot streak!

    I kept getting lucky! I hit a 16 free game bonus so naturally I’m telling myself I’m going to make more than my last 8 free game bonus! Did I?

    Heck no! Not even one mighty cash feature given by the dragon in 16 spins lol oh well it was a fun ride!

    Before I knew it. It was time to eat at Wicked Spoon!

    Cute pez art upon entering the buffet area

    Checking into Wicked Spoon was smooth. If using a bogo and credit they will process that and cancel the old prepaid reservation. I used a BOGO and $50 food credit so it essentially came out to $20 each for a party of 4!

    Food was definitely on par with its former self! Good sign that Vegas is healing is in the food!
    Crab legs were the star of the show of course! Prime rib was delicious! Duck wings were delicious! Overall good experience and had no issues waiting to be served by the workers manning the buffet stations. I do feel for them since they are breaking their tails to run around and pick food for people.

    After the buffet I hit up a couple more casinos to cash in on freeplay.

    After I was done with the strip I requested a Lyft ride which arrived within 10 minutes of requesting. Interesting that my previous Lyft driver thar brought me to the strip had told me that he was making about $3,000 a week since there was demand for drivers in Vegas and most Uber drivers are still on unemployment. That is a bonkers number and made me mull about driving lol
    Some slots back in Downtown but not much and called it a night so I can wake up and spend time with my parents before they head out super early to avoid traffic to LA.

    Some slot videos and a crappy video I took of Fremont Street on Saturday. This is after I had already walked past large pockets of hoards throughout fremont street


    Love this little shop of horror slot game!

    Happy Easter! I am alive haha I was working, slotting, and having quality time with my partner so I put the TR on the back burner to be more in the moment.

    I was on a small hot run and was up 2k until the last day! 8 days in being up and playing some good denoms got us a host at Circa and now we’re invited to comeback and stay there.

    Sunday was a success!
    Quick little warm up at the Vue Bar

    Now we’re ready for Circa where I hit a few nice hits at the Mega Bar! $200 in

    $500 and change out! Then was off to slot around and noticed that Circa had the brand spanking new Crazy Rick Asians slot machine me and my partner have been looking for!

    Ended up about $600 for about 3 hours of play which is a damn good amount of playback. Enough to had gotten us tipsy on free drinks and lubed up for some greasy pizza rock! Gotta say the Picante is spicy but delicious! We couldn’t finish the pizza but that didn’t stop us from trying!:beer::thumbsup: 28C0EB85-CEAC-4559-ABF3-23B8D34DD96C.jpeg

    Sunday went well and that is not where the winning stops! At this point Downtown is still lively with spring break and March madness crowds so we don’t spend much time under the Fremont Street canopy to avoid the mass of drunkenness (including myself:D). Monday we’re back at Circa! On a quest to bankrupt them and get a host in the process :evillaugh:

    It was delicious! The ricotta is the star and really cuts into the spiciness of the chorizo, and peppers! We devoured most of the pizza after gambling early and just stayed in the rest of the night Sunday and refueled for some more gambling at Circa Monday.

    I really dig that food itinerary and need to fill a few of those in on our checklist (Hugos) in,
    did you get some 8 East?
    also for ambiance at least consider Barrys as a possible> Andiamos.
    I'm guessing you liked Circa as much as I did, especially during the Freemont Crush.

    Yes @AyDee I saw your TR and loved your room! Barry’s is on my list to go to next. I went to 8East for their happy hour that starts at 3pm and ordered everything from the happy hour menu minus the booze since we were already hammered lol I also ordered a brisket fried rice which isn’t on the happy hour menu but bomb af! I didn’t like the chicken skins but besides that everything was great!

    You should definitely consider Hugo’s! I thought the Ribeye was better at Hugo’s than Andiamos. Also better value.

    This is a long one with lots of slot pictures!

    Last Monday ended up trekking to ElCo for the LVA freeplay. Well the $10 freeplay ended up costing me about $120 instead lol played this cute video poker game however the variance is worse than TBD in my eyes C3CE4041-B700-4314-98EC-619C4609691B.jpeg A06DE234-FA09-441B-9A1A-F23CB8F2F806.jpeg FD203E77-4050-4254-97B2-362EE9C546FB.jpeg

    Off to Circa. $100 buy in at the Mega Bar playing BPDLX. Cash out at?

    Out $1000 after 7 quads (two .25cent denom quads forget to take pictures of) in about 30 minutes! I drink fast at bars so I’m about 4 drinks in ready with liquor courage to blow my VP winnings on some slots!

    Gambled from 1pm to 6pm and I didn’t blow my Vp winnings but actually pocket $1,900 which is better than a handpay in my book because no taxes! After having plenty to drink it was then time to eat!

    Sadly my ribeye felt too lean and not fatty marble quality that I got from Hugo’s Cellar. The bread and olive dip was new to me and I loved it! The truffle lobster pasta dish was also unique and complimented my steak since it wasn’t up to par. I sadly don’t know if I will give Andiamos a second chance but will think about it after trying Barry’s my next trip!

    Monday was definitely a good day gambling wise and afterwards a host reaches out to us that she will take care of us the next time we want to stay at Circa! Definitely put in a solid 9 hours of play at Circa on slots so I look forward to how my next offers will look!
