    Seriously, I left. But HOW did you ever get that pretzel through security at the crosswalk back to the hotel ?

    I fashioned stilts out of the leftovers and became a busker. I made $7 on the deal.
     
    Hopefully the weather will be nice.

    Something I didn't initially include in my trip report as a real-time update, but will add now:

    On Thursday I went to NUWU Marketplace. I used their drive-thru. It was seamless. Except, when I got back to my hotel, I saw that one of the products I ordered was well past it's Best If Used By date.

    I was disappointed, so I decided to contact NUWU. I wasn't expecting a positive outcome because there is a large "all sales final" statement on their receipt. But, I was proven wrong in a good way. The representative I communicated with told me they removed this brand from their inventory and offered to exchange the item with an additional 10% discount on the exchange. Kudos to NUWU for making it right.


    On Friday afternoon, I decided to try some of the edible I bought. Don't worry, I consumed the edible at a private residence and not on hotel property, as that would have been illegal. About 30 minutes later, the edible kicked in. It was a nice, mellow high. During the high, I decided to send a few private messages to a fellow VMBer. Here are those messages:

    Deep thoughts.

    Oh, I do not want to step all over @jimboguy's awesome trip report. Getting that many SF (I think it was 6!) was amazing! And 2 RF if I counted correctly.

    I can't help myself, but back in 2016 we had a Thanksgiving Vegas trip. I had a pretty good run of 4oak's including one SF and 1 RF, until the last day. We had a red eye back to MKE so we had time to play at MSS before we flew out. Before we left MSS for the airport, I hit 2 more SF. We got into MKE and because of the time, I had booked a room at Potowatomi. It was after midnight and we were still on Vegas time. We went down to the casino floor and within a little over an hour of play I ended up hitting 4 more SF! I know, hard to believe and a little harder to prove. But I do have the pics!

    I still like the TR @jimboguy!!
     
    Maybe not this year. Looking forward to 2021!

    I have taken pics of all quads+ since i have got a smart phone (Oct. 2013, yeah I was late. Lol). And a spreadsheet listing things like date, denomination, casino, game variant, game "gimmick" (STP, UX, Hot Roll, etc.), base payback %age, Number of cards held, rank, kicker or suit for SF/RF, payout in credits, and payout in $.

    I haven't opened that sheet in awhile, but I'm at 30 or 31 SF, and 7 Royals. Also behind on quad Aces with no dealt quad Aces or 9s. But I'm not concerned about dealt quad 9s. Lol

    Welcome to the board! You're only about seven weeks late on claiming the hat. Sorry, it's already been claimed.
     
    Hopefully the weather will be nice.
