    VPFree2 claims the 12/8 Loose Deuces is still there, but only goes to quarters. That game is a pain anyway. I've obviously not hit the Deuces. Lol

    Hope you can find that dollar Royal today!

    All of those machines around the pillar are gone. Maybe they just moved them elsewhere, but if so I didn’t see them.

    Second session lost it all back. Now even if $16,000. Took a walk through El Cortez and Downtown Grand. Nothing too exciting. Looks like ElCo is still spreading a single deck game face up. And they’ve reconfigured their coin droppers into circles. DTGs quarter DDB progressive Royal is up over $2,000.

    It is the best one I have found. Though I guess there could be something somewhere not reported.

    Third session in the books. Now up $400 on $24,000 coin in. Taking a break at Chicago Brewing for beer and a light lunch. Dinner tonight at Andiamo. And I just got the dreaded “Time to Check In for Your Flight” email.

    Don't mean to hijack, but Andiamo is really one of the more solid places to eat downtown. A few weeks ago my buddy had the rib eye (double char requested), I had a few bites and it was literally the best steak I've ever tried (been to Oscar's, CP, Gallagher's, etc) and this was better.

    I opted for the seafood risotto and was very happy. Service and ambiance is always top notch too.

    I hadn’t had a pink drink all trip. That has now been fixed.

    Andiamo. You guys convinced me to try the ribeye. It’s excellent. Everything about this place is awesome, except how they treat solo diners.

    That steak looks fantastic! I ran into the lonely solo diner table at GR in Paris. Horrible noisy seat near the entry back to the kitchen/prep area.

    I didn’t even get a table. They said my table wasn’t ready yet (showed up five minutes before my reservation). Told me “It will be quite a while, especially since you are a party of one.” Offered the bar which I took. And ten minutes later they sat a couple at a table that had been open since I came in.

    I don’t mind the bar - but that’s some pretty shitty customer service.

    Way beyond sh*tty! I have refused the bar attempt myself before because I’m only 4’11”. It’s not very comfortable to dine at high tops for me. I think a follow up comment to management would at least make you feel better. You had a ressie. They had a table. I spent way too many years waitressing on the side and there are normally always ways to successfully handle things.

    Finished the $32,000 up $300. Then turned $775 FP into $1,040. Today was a much better gambling day.
