Hi @Richard Alpert my friend sooner or later I knew you gonna come around lol
Well.... slot tourney didn’t go that well....I don’t have to wait till tomorrow find out how I did....let just say I’m gonna get $500 free play... regardless it was last minute tourney and I really didn’t even expect to make it so it’s just free money for me. Lol
After the tourney we went down to MB and visited the happy place .... felt like waste of $67 for 3 of us (bought it online so it was cheaper otherwise would have been $37 at the door) it’s just taking photo places kinda stupid lol.
tonight’s agenda -
Dinner at yellowtail restaurant
O show at Bellagio 930 pm
Weather is chilly and I think I underestimated and didn’t bring proper clothing feels bit chilly but overall good. (When I felt little cold walking thru strip I kinda freaked out thinking I might cut something ) anyhow it’s all good. Just relaxing in the room now till go for dinner later on.
A @Drewm1972 TR!
I've gotta get caught up on this one, but I just wanted to stop in and say "Howdy!"
Also some news that a certain bride just gave me a birthday surprise--plane tix to a certain city in the desert over Easter break.
its now 2 am here.. had decent dinner at yellowtail sushi (sorry no pics) food is good but service tonight was terrible (not likely would go back) the we saw the O show (looks like they added some acts) then back to Aria I played for about 1.5 hrs (Baccarat) and again I immediately lost $3500 WTF!! Then I went to different table started new shoe able to win my money back plus won $1k !! Thank goodness! so back in the room trying to get some rest...
Early on today I felt dizzy and bit cold when I was walking strip I was so nervous being sick then came back to room - relaxed got some hot liquids in me then I was back to normal I think I was just exhausted. So all is good.
one thing, since we have this virus crisis going on I really don’t even want to play it -
1. I don’t wan to keep touching “chips”
2. Interacting w dealers, pit ppl ( I saw that Mgm couple employees got infected wow!)
3. I don’t want to get stuck “losing” during this time when it’s keep on making feel nervous.
so I stop playing tonight kept the session very short .. so will see how it goes tomorrow maybe I will play more or not.
Some photos from O show, theater was 80% occupied (maybe even more) and both bellagio and aria was busier compare to last couple of days
Good morning VMB normally I would be very excited and looking forward today but as I’m awaking up I’m afraid to open up news paper ...I’m just getting nervous now.. as I’m at the lounge ppl come and go like normal which makes me feel better tho.
anyhow not much on agenda, wife and daughter planning to get massage and I may just relax.
I just got done doing manicure lol girls are getting massage done - I just found out spa will be closed starting on 3/16 wtf!!!
Well all done.... now we are about o have brunch at Bardot brasserie I ordered their famous French toast among other foods I will upload the photos once arrive...
glad we tried here....first time and probably will come back... food & service were pretty good.
Just went downstairs by baccarat tables and there was one person playing wow, chat w pit ppl they were all nervous getting laid off next week...wow just wow after that I really didn’t want to play. I think we gonna take it easy ... wait for my Prize free play of $500 from slot tourney which should be load up on my card after 230 then play some slots. Will see how the rest day goes.
Well it’s about 5 pm here... night is about to start I do see lot more ppl matter fact, high limit BJ room is almost full and looks like baccarat getting some action as well.
I’m not too sure if I’m up for gaming but thinking about dinner later for now wife will be playing some slots if any decent win I will try to post.
Good luck if you decide to play. It’s tough to enjoy if the atmosphere isn’t right. Not easy for dealers and other respected employees to keep a smile when they know what’s looming ahead.
We just got done eating Best Friend over at Park MGM again food was ok expected little more but this will d for now.
Now we made it to MB watch Michael Jackson One show ... ticket office told me it’s last night they offering .. too bad. It’s going dark starting tomorrow wow!!!
Btw here are some highlights while wife playing some slots
Here is MJ One show before starting
I would theater is about 65~70% full might be more but this is not bad setting.
Just got done w MJ One show just plain awesome!!!! I seen it like 3 times already but more times I see it .. gets better all the time. Wifey always gets emotional when they have MJ in hologram and bring him. Wow, I hope show doesn’t got dark too long!!!
Well back at aria now.. seating down on baccarat table hoping for some wining
Alright had very quick session - won $2k really fast... problem is again I have mentioned since all this virus going on even other players were playing very lightly - same reason, we don’t want to be stuck during this time aria baccarat room said starting tomorrow they gonna be cutting room down to 1/4 size maybe 2-3 tables max (if that, evening time) day time high limit room will be closed. So with that being said ppl just don’t feel like playing and I agreed so after winning $2k I just cashed out and came upstairs.
