    So Day 1

    I met me at the entrance, I checked in and we went straight to Martorano bar for dinner. It was very good and just enough. After I dropped the suitcase in the room and back down to play at Paris. Played triple play VP on the floor near Gastav and quickly down $800 on dollar

    Moved to the bar and hit 4 aces and multiple dealt flushes straights and a quad. Got a nightcap to bring to the room from Pi at Bally’s Lobby bar and in bed by midnight

    Only did 30 minutes on the elliptical today. Knee was hurting so thought it best to stop. Now back for a shower and get this day started

    First order of business was to Uber to the D to cash a $500 chip I’ve forgotten to cash last couple years. Turns out they are out of circulation and several phone calls were made before they finally got approved to cash it. Got a little nervous

    Next a great breakfast at the Fremont paradise cafe and now the BHB for some VP and a

    The deuces game on the new Aristocrat units are better paytables than that one if you wanted to give it a shot.

    Day 2 recap

    Got a slow start but still made it to the fitness center and did 30 minutes on the elliptical [emoji3]

    After a shower I was down to get my front money and a marker sorted. My son and i Uber to the D to cash an old $500 chip I kept forgetting to cash. Fortunately they took it after multiple calls.

    We had a very nice breakfast at the Fremont paradise cafe for $6.99 each. My son said he had almost the same at Paris the day before for twice the price. We decided to go to BHB and skip playing at the D. Glad we did as I had three lovely beers and left up about $300

    The Uber driver to downtown was terrible and glad there were no accidents. Lyft driver back was great and we had a great conversation about driving Lyft and Vegas. According to him drunks throwing up in their cars happens more than one would think. Also they are not well compensated for the clean up and your basically out of work the rest of the night.

    Got dropped off at Harrahs with plans to have a cigar at the bar. Unfortunately that’s not allowed so we played for a couple drinks and moved to Cromwell. Play there wasn’t that good and I eventually went through about 2k before we moved on to Paris HL and to register for the offer I’m on

    Registration was a cluster to say the least. The line. Wrapped around a lot of the front of Paris. Decided to try HL and glad I did. Played deuce wild, JOB and finally settled in on a long run of Bonus poker. It was maybe an hour ten minutes and I was up over 1200 TCs. Went back to register and the line was even longer so decided I would have to do it today as dinner was 5:30

    BLT was awesome as always and we were able to snag a 20% off coupon to use. Our bartender lady friend joined us and we all had a great time.

    The puffed up rolls and butter are so dangerous. It’s like I couldn’t stop eating it but I knew I would be able to finish my steak. And this bacon appetizer was so good. Next time I think I’ll eat at the bar and just have bread and bacon

    After dinner we tried a little BJ but that was a bust. We loaded up our friend with all the leftovers and I was in the room by 9:30. I did check my TCs and had a little over 3100 for the day so that’s at least 124 entries to win Bora Bora [emoji106]

    Woke up at 4 and couldn’t get back to sleep so up dressed drinking coffee and watching the sun rise. Doesn’t get much better than this
