    OK, last set of pictures from Circa. Went downstairs (ground floor) to take a peek at the Sportsbook. It is big. I'll have to get out to Westgate to compare

    This is the sports book. The tables are for "paying customers". The theater seats are "no charge" during off hours

    One the way out of the casino I saw some machines that I'd be interested in playing in 2021, but not today

    And that's about it. Waiting for 9AM to start to get gas and go to the airport. I will be struggling with the idea of self-quarantine and whether my strategy will be "adhering" to the policy. There should be little/no need to go to the grocery store, and I can always send my son in to pick up consumables, so I should be OK in that respect. COVID-19 cases have "spiked" in Santa Clara county and I don't want to be a contributing factor.

    Oh, and on a good note, it's now been 38 hours since I put any cash money into a slot machine. I'm learning. Just too bad that it took me many years to learn how "not" to play.

    OK, see ya. I'll add more if something interesting happens

    wondering if you got the "young" pickle, we tried the "old" and it was unbearably salty.
    just curious if anyone out there had the "old" one and actually liked it...

    Mine was pretty crisp, so it must've been the "young" pickle. Not too salty.

    Can you explain your statement that “you ran out of 4Q cards”? Do you leave your cards behind after you play slots? How many cards do you start your trip with?

    Thanks

    Good question.

    I carry two of every card for each casino that I MAY visit when I'm out. I have 8 QQQQ cards at home and another 3 in my suitcase. That time, since I was "done" playing, I wasn't carrying the normal complement and I just ran out. In the pre-COVID-19 days it wouldn't be a problem, because you can normally get cards 24/7.

    I will be a little more careful next time

    Thanks for the TR, you always have great food photos. I wish your son luck on the dmv test. Maybe a bike/electric bike could be another option for him? Had a friend pass away due to ignoring HBP, glad you're watching and getting it treated.
