    Hey Topcard,

    Super fired up for your El Cortez observations as we will be staying there tomorrow (Wed) night through Saturday morning. Haven't seen a proper Elco post since the opening and itching for some info on conditions there.

    My buddy and I have separate premium tower king rooms and yours looks fantastic.

    Would love to hear how crowded/dead it is tonight and tomorrow, craps table minimums and whether there's a wait.

    If you see a drunk middle aged asian and white dude (me) at the craps table starting around midnight tomorrow that's us, stop by and throw some dice with us!

    Cheers to a great trip!

    Good first day... +$540...
    Elco minimums are $10 at blackjack &$5 for UTH & 3-card.
    I didn’t hit the crap table, so not sure there, but it was packed every time I walked by.
    All Plaza tables were closed, so unless you’re a machine player only, don’t bother.
    More tomorrow, but here are some Circa pics for y’all
