    So the nap didn't go as well as if hoped, and man did it catch up with me later on.

    Played a little blackjack at PH while I waited for my brother in law to make his way over from Aria. Played for about 45 minutes and ended up a hundred.

    We swung over to Blondie's for their 20 all you can drink special, which... all things considered? Probably not the best of calls, considering it's 3 hours long and Bud lites go down like Poland Spring. I constantly have to remind myself that I'm 39 going on 40, not 19 going on 20. Numbers are hard.

    My BIL had tickets to see David Lee Roth, which didn't interest me... but I walked him over to Excalibur to get the tram and ended up playing some more blackjack there. Would have had great session if not for a novice taking the dealer's bust card when she shouldn't have. Oh well. Still ended up ahead.

    Made a pit stop at Beerhaus on the way back then hit up the tables at PH once more. Proceeded to give back all of my winnings from the day plus a few bucks. Got up after my buy in was donated to Xtina's kid's college fund and decided to to upstairs and wait for the David Lee Roth so that I didn't just burn all of my day's bankroll.

    This, it appears, was a fatal error - as I ended up passing out on the couch till 1 am. Again... I forget that I'm old now often.

    Went downstairs and fuck it... Back to the tables. Played till around 2:30 and decided to call it a day after hitting a hand that brought me back to even for the session.

    I should be sleeping but my old ass body thinks it's 8am. Going to try the white noise nowamd see if I can catch some zzzs.

    One problem with the room with the view... The curtains don't close all the way so the lights on the Eifel Tower and across the street at Cosmo bleed in. This clearly did not prevent my passing out on the couch, but is keeping me up now. Oh well.

    Lost about 30% of yesterday's bankroll... Which is fine as I'll just roll it into the next two days.

    I really need sleep.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Up entirely too early... but such is life when your body still thinks you're on the east coast.

    Grabbing an entirely just ok breakfast sandwich from Earl of Sandwich. Definitely don't do breakfast as well as they do lunch. ALAS.

    Figure now's a good time to do my strip tour to pick up my 4 MyKonami free plays.

    MGM Grand, NYNY, Bellagio and Mirage.

    By the time that's done I'll probably be ready for a nap. Which is the plan. No early evenings tonight!

    Last trip I made this exact same mistake, showed up at 7:45am. Took a lap around the mall, then it was ready.

    Starting the day with a 4 team college basketball parlay

    St. John's -3.5
    Georgetown +7.5
    Rutgers +5
    Kentucky -9.5

    Looking promising at the half... alas, if I won every bet that I said "looking promising at the half" I'd be a millionaire

    Also tossed the following in for the games tonight.
    Vikings +7
    Titans +10
    Vikings Niners over 44.5

    I think you can get +10.5 at MLife, that hook might come in handy!

    MLife had it at 9.5.

    Had my second breakfast of the day at Tom's Urban - clearly did not eat enough yesterday so needed to get a good base down for today's activities.

    Put a few prop bets in on players scoring first...

    Kyle Rudolph +1200
    Dalvin Cook +600
    George Kittle +700

    Take one of the pant hangers out of the closet, the one with the little clamps on them. You should be able to use that to keep the drapes closed.

    Watched the first half of the 49ers game at Tilted Kilt and then moved over to Flamingo to play a little blackjack in the 2nf half. No parlay wins on the day, and all my prop bets fizzled... but I tossed a decent chunk of change in the Titans money line right before kickoff so unless I do something stupid today (always possible!) this trip is looking like a sure fire winner.

    After blackjack and the run to the book we grabbed dinner at Yardhouse. My boss back home tried to get us Golden Knights tickets but they never came through, so we went to check out Rich Vos at Jimmy Kimmel's place. Good show... but turned out that the Golden Knight tickets only didn't make it cause the guy with the hook up misspelled my email! By the time we realized the first period was over and we were fairly far away. Sucks but whatcha gonna do?

    Went back to flamingo after the show and played some more blackjack. A slew of vodka red bulls later and I'm not entirely sure when I got back to the hotel. But I'm here!

    Wallet dump this morning was great

    Appears I doubled up on blackjack. Toss in the win from the Titans and daddy's a happy camper.

    Going to try and do my strip walk for my myKonami freeplay now. I woke up with a crazy cramp in my calf so this may not go well. But fuck it...Vegas baby[​IMG]
