    Just a heads up Porker. This weekend is going to be a whole lot different than your 'typical' Vegas weekend. While the NYE crowd should be thinning out a little, there's still going to be way more than the average amount of degenerates in the city of sin. Expect longer lines, higher prices for food, and higher table limits, etc. Basically, a lot of shit you may not be expecting. Otherwise, enjoy. Really like your style, and thanks for being a cop.

    Porker,

    I'll be flying in on Saturday. Let me know where you guys will be after the cowboys/colts game or where you will be watching it. After that game I will either be celebrating a Cowboys win or drowning self with free drinks it they lose.

    I could go for some low limit stuff if I've been drinking.



    My drinking crew from San Diego can not make it so might meet up with some other VMBers.

    Yeah sorry I dropped the ball on my TR countdown. Things were a little crazy at work these last couple days. I have the next couple TRs lined up though so I'll post then tonight.

    @wpete: Thanks for the heads up on prices etc. I was in Vegas for superbowl last year and didn't have a problem with lines/crowd/table limits. Bring it! (My bottom feeding entourage might complain but that's their problem).

    @pphold: I'll let you know where we end up for the game. Who knows, maybe I'll be up enough by that point to scratch by on your table limits for awhile (haha ya right!). Either way, keep me in the loop on any meet ups.

    I don't get why you guys bring booze to VEGAS. They have booze at the casino. Its free just tip the waitress.


    OK I do gamble so I get call brands and top shelf. CET diamond lounges have good booze. And there is a CostCo in Vegas and liquor stores so you can buy the booze there.



    First time my buddies carried in a two roller bags and when the open one it was full of booze and then the cooler with all the mixers. I didn't get it till i saw them drink. Ok they finish up half the bottle in 30 mins so yea it is cheaper to bring your own. but it you are going t drink in the room you might as well just drink at home. Just the old guy talking here.

    Porker your my type of law enforement. You party when you get off work. Looking forward to meeting up and having a few drinks at craps.

    Hey, if I had the cash to play from morning till night, I wouldn't be packing more than an extra t-shirt and some deodorant. Unfortunately, I often find myself in a position where I gotta find the fun away from the table. In those situations, a cheap buzz in the hotel room does the trick.

    Plus, most of my buddies aren't big gamblers. And as this is a reunion of sorts, I can't ditch them for the tables all day.

    Yes, Go Hawks! I'm flying down from Seattle tomorrow, 1 night at Sam's Town watching CFB Playoffs, then down to Phoenix to watch my Dawgs crush Oklahoma State. Back to Vegas Saturday/Sunday for NFL Wild Card action, (Staying at the Golden Gate as usual) fly back to Seattle Monday. Golden Gate has the best atmosphere by far downtown, craps dealers are solid.

    Ya it's 100% blue agave. I'm not a huge Tequila guy so I can't really comment on its quality...

    I just use it to strengthen their pre-made Margarita mix. The Pauper used to be a bar tender so he's the one requesting most of this Crap. Guy seriously tried to find a way to bring a juice maker. He's seriously the most high matinence chump I've ever met... God bless him

    It's a huge step up to 100% agave and then it doesn't matter much. At least in my opinion, but I never got on tequila until I took a trip to JerryLand and got hooked on tequila in Texas, still its phases for me. Bottom line, I imagine it's fine stuff.
