    Decided to use our comps from the ONE card. FYI - if you want to get emails for both you and your spouse regarding offers, you cannot use the same email account. Still screwed up and will have to fix it while here in Vegas because they can’t do it over the phone. Will let you know if Mrs. V can get it straightened out

    On our way to the Grill, saw Sigma was up and running.

    Played keno while waiting for our meal. The last game was 666. Turns out we didn’t win on any games.

    Played at Elco. No pictures.
    Went and checked in at Eastside Cannery. This time our view was better than the roof and AC unit. Corner room. Love the size of these rooms. Poor Mr. V has to sleep in his own bed again. All the kings were taken.

    When Mrs. V checked in she said she had the same gal as always. She likes the longevity of the staff. This gal was extremely happy cuz it’s her Friday. Check in went super smooth. Bummer all the kings were taken but we will survive.

    Sunday November 18:

    Got up and slotted around this morning, burning free play and my own hundo and finished up $20.00. Checked out my bets at the sports book - no wins on parlay cards -$20.00. Oh and for those bettors wondering, you get points and drink tickets for every $50.00 at ADC.

    I went up to the room and showered and the wife was ready to checkout so we did. She went down and blew through $20 on the Walking Dead Machine while I was getting ready. It was a very enjoyable stay at the fabulous ARIZONA CHARLIES DECATUR.

    After a stop for ice, we headed to JERRY’S NUGGET to check if we won on any parlay cards there. We did not so down another $25.00. You would think I would know enough to stop at this point but my mom did not raise a quitter so I went in for another $75.00 the wife dropped $20.00 at VP while enjoying her coffee.

    Next, we went to the D grill to use up some comps for breakfast cost us $9.00. Thanks Derick!

    Then we decided it was time to renew are relationship with the EL CORTEZ. We lost $120.00 in about two hrs. That TOWER WOLF slot took $100.00 of it and gave back very small bonuses.

    That was enough of the ELCO for us so we headed down FREMONT to the BOULDER HIGHWAY and found our way to the EASTSIDE CANNERY. Got a corner room facing the LONGHORN casino. If you’re following our trip report @notfromconcentrate you will not go wrong with a room here. This the best room we have ever gotten here and the promos are always good here.

    Thanks for the mention :) and nice photos of the room earlier in the thread. I'm afraid I'm firm on staying at the Longhorn this coming trip, especially now that the morning after, I have to be out super early (I'm doing a mad dash down Boulder to try and do several destinations one after the other). But this, along with the comments in my original thread have persuaded me to stay at EC at some point.

    Was the corner room extra? I don't see an option for it on their website, except for their suite.

    The Corner Room did not cost extra. Perhaps the gal at the front was in a GREAT mood because it was her "Friday" and she couldn't give us the king the wife requested, or we are just lucky this time. Usually we are on the third floor on the complete other end of the hall and overlooking the AC units!

    Our room is like the third corner/light bar/ set of windows up. Make sure you count the one that’s “hiding” behind the main structure.

    Ugghh...I mean yay.....laundry. This is truly a nice/safe laundry facility. It’s been a tad cleaner in the past but we use it and try to book our stay mid trip. Has made a huge difference on what we bring when we fly. And of course even though we drove, we still packed light. Well Mr. V did anyways.... ;). The counters are nice for folding clothes. You can see the pool from the laundry room and Sams Town. As you can see the sun went down while Mrs. V was working.

    Went to Club Fortune. Mrs. V played Pai Gow. Table minimum $5. You pay commission. Great dealer. Awesome staff. Good music. Didn’t stay long but recommend it for the amazing customer service and friendly dealers and wait staff.
