    I'll be working on my latest novel this weekend. Lol Currently at 550 but planning to head back toward CET for awhile (flamingo and Linq mostly) @miss_sonja.

    This beer sucks relatively Mason Hazy River (6.5%; 2.75 sips). Maybe the worst Hazy IPA I have ever had. It finishes like Miller High Life.

    Absinthe was awesome! So glad I saw it. I had a great seat-recommended by the box office staffer. I would have picked a closer seat but she was spot on Row J section 1.

    It had less of a storyline than I had expected, after seeing Opium. It all seemed to work together though-very impressive!

    Wow what a big day that was! My feet tell me so at least!

    Haven’t tallied the pocket dump yet.

    Found my dragons though!

    Bouchon for breakfast was lovely! Best coffee I’ve had here in Vegas and excellent service and food. I sat outside.

    I broke my own VP rule which is, if you get down by 25% of buy-in, stop. Only a big win will get you back up. This rule works for me, keeps me from feeling like I’m just tossing $ away. Broke it and yeah, tossed $ away.

    1EBF3E95-8343-4B02-A1E2-836EA5F37B2E.jpeg Well... buffets were on my never list in Vegas, but I got a free one for Garden buffet from the Cal, at Main Street Station. So, yeah, free lunch! And finally some fruit!

    No cracks about what’s on the plate-it’s just the salad course!

    29A8ECB6-711E-4D3A-A759-0A45631EE6A1.jpeg This has been the losingist winningest day so far!

    Lost that hundred on craps. Then another 50 on 10-play VP for a total of $100 down.

    But there was that $170 slot win and two other smaller ($20 & 30) slot wins.

    So I think I’m actually about even!

    Waiting for the SDX bus to go check out The STRAT . It’s happy hour in the bar 107 so I’ll try that for a fancy drink.

    Shit. That's where we went this afternoon too. Didn't consider that you might go back there today. Hope you run as well at VP as I did there today! :beer:

    At Lounge 107 at the Stratosphere for happy hour.

    Ah, bummer! I totally lost! Played 10 play bonus (which has spoiled me for single play). Had fun though.

    E5BF0BD7-BC6C-41DD-B665-3F746D00BE21.jpeg The now-famous pocket dump!

    After that huge day of fancy restaurants and downtown buffets, getting felted at craps and VP, and playing slots all over the place, I’m down $32 bucks. But wait! I paid for my Deuce ticket from my gaming cash! That means I’m only down $24.

    Just got my gelato fix from Eataly. Still love that place. Resting my feet in the room before I head down to play some bubble craps (there’s still $ in that category!) and maybe a few more slots (again, still have $$ there).

    I don’t post my Vegas trips on social media; it’s very nice to share with you all!
