    They have changed my seat, not complaining though.

    10 hour flight not too bad as had been switched to a better seat. Only watched one film which was John Wick Chapter 3, the number of killings put Rambo to shame.

    Got in a little early so avoided the Mexican flights coming in and with no Thomas Cook immigration was empty. Waited a bit for bags then a limo to Tuscany, 3 of the guys have never stayed here, there are impressed already. On check in was informed Marylins cafe now closes at midnight, also they have replaced Corona light with Coors light on draught. 15703957753601625411988344138504.jpg

    First drink in Vegas this trip.

    enjoyed my lone stay at Tuscany, practically lived in pub 365 but the sportsbook needs immediate makeover. The rooms are great and the CW are even better.

    Check out Pub 365 in Tuscany, they have a great beer menu and good happy hour and late night specials.

    If you are looking for a comparable ABV lighter beer like Coors but with more flavor, they serve very good beers including very good West Coast regional offerings in bottles / cans (Anchor Steam 4.8% and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale 5.3% ($6 each) and Firestone Walker Pivo Pils 5.3%).

    I prefer draught/draft beer, and a few of my favorites are listed including a very good local beer Astronomy Aleworks Monoceros $3.65 for 10 oz 8.3%, Founders Nitro Rübæus $8 14 oz 5.7% ABV and Bell's Cherry Stout $7 14 oz 7% ABV.

    Have a great trip, best of luck and and look forward to the rest of your report!!!

    Monday was a good day, I met drinker for breakfast in Tuscany. We then hit the bar and I started my VP play, $20 down on that session. 20191007_100313.jpg

    The rest of the gang turned up and we walked over to Blondies Bar yo watch a soccer game. I liked the sign over the urinal.

    After Blondies we had a drink at Topsy Robot, then went over to O'Sheas for a few drinks then Tilted Kilt. Me and Junior stayed there while the rest went back to Tuscany. We went on to American bar then Yardhouse, a weird thing there as Junior went toilet so I went to bar to order drinks. The guy behind the bar wouldn't pour Juniors drink until he was standing at the bar. He said he couldn't give me two drinks as I was on my own.

    After there we went back to Tuscany and met with the rest, after a couple more they all bailed so I was last man standing again. I ended up in Platinum for the night.
