    Titans were the better team Tuesday. I believe that we will make the Chiefs pay for the whupping Tennessee put on us. Wait till you see my Tuesday TR!

    Friday morning. Probably my most eventful day. Definitely the most filing.. Wife and I started the day at Mon Ami Gabi with 2 daughters and niece to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. 9:15 am reservations and we scored a lovely patio location. I had my fave. Blueberry French toast and chicken sausage. Kim ( wife) had salmon eggs Benedict ( or salmon poached eggs. Lol) Laneesha ( middle daughter) had waffles, eggs and bacon. Shiana ( eldest ) had eggs, home fries, toast and bacon and niece Darnesha had eggs Benedict. Service and food were first rate.

    I would look as happy as your group if I was at MAG eating breakfast, too! Great table, view and food!

    After that ( burping) good meal everyone went their separate ways . I stayed at Paris and sat down at a Face Up Paigow table. Rather uneventful for the first hour until I unveiled 4 aces. $600.00 plus in bonuses. Nice. Played for little loner then drove to Mirage to check in Laneesha ( on my 2 day MyVegas Cino ). Friday Saturday no less.

    After that I ventured over to Ballys and lost my a- - at craps. Played a few hands of VP and got some decent hands but nothing consistent. 51184612-247A-42B0-8AF7-0378C738AB4F.jpeg 0434327E-475D-45D5-B762-CEFAC730CACD.jpeg 5B52C44B-991B-4D65-9E62-6CDB01312C57.jpeg

    I must say that Friday had the best and worse of my trip. Some of the worse was how packed the lobby was during check in and how packed the casino was late Friday night.

    Kim and I had went to play at Orleans and when we returned the casino was too packed to even move around so we called it a night

    One of the highlights of Friday dinner was our anniversary dinner at Lakeside, sponsored by my sister ( Flowers). In a word, everything was perfect. Atmosphere, food , service. All spot on.

    We began with the shellfish platter. Maine lobster tail, shrimp cocktail, oysters and huge king crab legs. It was a meal for 2 by itself. I got the Domestic Wagyu with a side of mushrooms and Kim had Atlantic Diver scallops with asparagus and mash potatoes sides. Couldn’t finish the steak although lord knows I tried. Washed it down with a NA beer ( I stopped drinking alcohol in 93). Kim had wine ( not sure what kind). Took a pineapple upside down cake back to the room. It lasted us 3 days.The whole dinner was highlighted by a visit from lil sis and VMB legend Eliza ( thanks for the Ellis Island drink coupons ) The various shows on thier lake are always special. Thier “ Happy Anniversary” treat at the end of the night was a perfect finisher.

    When returned to a crowded Flamingo we called it an early night....But not before a couple of quick hits.

    Glad to see your having a great time my New York brother. It's also nice to see pictures with people in them for a change, i've never met anyone here so it's nice to put a face to a name. Hopefully Monday afternoon / evening will make up for last Tuesday. Get Tre Day and Milano back to give us some more ammo on defense.
    Look forward to following along with the rest of your journey. Enjoy it!!!
    ....and of course GO BILLS!!!!

    Yessir Ed. I believe our boys will definitely make up for that horrible performance VS the Titans!

    Go BILLS.

    Outstanding report, Champster. I love the food and setting pictures, but not sure why trip reporters post endless shots of slot or VP wins. Those are boring—happy for you, but who cares? Stick with people, places and definitely food.

    Great report. Loving the VP action - looks like the love of the game runs in the family!

    Im rooting hard for your Bills this season - I have a shit ton bet on them to win the AFC East! It’s their time - so sick of the Patriots (even though I’m a Cam fan from his Panthers days)

    thanks for sharing
