    I don't get in there very often but the Casino Royale is nostalgic for me. That used to be our stomping grounds when we were younger and of more limited means. In fact, we used to get in there so much we had a waitress asked us where we lived in Vegas? When we told her we were from Canada she didn't believe it and wanted our ID. That waitress actually got a job at Wynn when it opened up and I still see a waitress at the Royale that used to serve us back in the day.

    And you absolutely, positively, cannot argue with $3 beers on the strip!

    I went the cheapskate route this morning. Funny thing, it’s twice the price than back home! But that’s the Strip for you.

    I want to try my hand at sports betting. Any good picks for the Sunday NFL games? I know there are some threads already that I can check out as well.

    I beg to differ, good sir. Speaking from personal experience, you absolutely CAN argue with them. They don't argue back, though... they just sit there, perspiring, not saying a goddamn word. It's infuriating.

    Gaggles, is that Paula(maybe Patti)a tall, thin brunette? She used to have quite the nickname for herself.

    I can't quite remember her name but she was a crazy good waitress and got a couple young men very drunk on many a night. But we knew how Vegas worked and even though we didn't have a lot of money, we tipped properly. Sometimes she would drop off a round of drinks even when we hadn't ordered and wouldn't take a tip. Good times.

    Made my first sports bet ever using the BetMGM app! Pretty cool. I know very little about sports betting but it’s fun.

    Trying Blue Ribbon at Cosmo for the first time. I like their Southern Gentleman cocktail. Going to go with the salmon.

    The salmon at Blue Ribbon last night was amazing!! So delicious! Highly recommended. Hung around Cosmo for awhile. I was able to go in and out of the property with my Identity card. It was very busy as most places were on the Strip last night (Friday). It was an awesome sight to see. I love the energy of the crowds! Met up some friends at Bellagio and hung out there for a while. Walked back to Cosmo then over to Planet Hollywood, then on the east side of the Strip back to the Mirage.

    Gambling was okay for a while but I finally lost the daily bankroll. Played mostly slots, some video poker, and roulette. Had a few nice wins.

Ive always loved his movies. I bet most people that walk by it have no idea who he was.

    Also this is my first time staying at the Mirage and I’m really enjoying it! Great property. Very spacious casino floor and restaurants. Going to the pool today.

Very refreshing! It was pretty busy. Walked over to Caesars Palace food court. Food I got was not that great but you get what you pay for! Taking a gambling break today. Need to make the money last the whole week!
