    @gr8whitenorth where did you pickup the alcohol? I usually pick up the hard alcohol at duty free since the strip is so expensive.

    After cooling off in the room we needed food so we ended up at Ocean's One at the miracle mile and they absolutely blew us away. Great food, fast service. We had a quesidella appetizer and then both had steaks. Cocktails were 3 for 10 so of course we had 3 each.

    We gambled our way through Ballys, Paris and PH and eventually settled at PH. We made friend with an amazing CW. We tipped heavily early and she never let us run dry. We love the slot rock around the clock and found a bank of 4 and spent hours using them as our personal ATM.

    I've no idea how or when we got back to the room but a pocket dump says we actually we are up for the day.

    Found some random TITO that I've no recollection whatsoever of getting and added it to the pile and we ended up about 150 up for the day. Also having flashback memories of an altercation in the bathroom at Ballys. Someone pushed me which apparently I didn't care for so I tossed the guy across the bathroom. From what I remember security came in and was initially going to escort me out but someone else was in there and confirmed the other guy started it. No blood or bruises on me so I guess I won....

    Hey you guys have a blast. So far you remind me of my wife and myself. She has put up with me for 42 years.

    on a standard slot, coin in is $5 per Tier Credit there. $10 per TC for VP. Just look at the total you earned for the day unless you earned enough for a Tier Credit bonus.

    I screenshot the home page in my app with the TC and RC on it when I get up in the morning before playing, then do the math described above. They dont have a breakdown available like MLife and Cosmo do online.

    Thanks for the info.

    Ill do the math later.

    We popped in to Bellagio and redeemed a BOGO buffet so its time to go and eat this morning.

    Just did a hit and run on Buuuffaaallllooo and hit 40 free games.

    Peppermill for dinner today via the monorail. Likely hit up Resorts World also.

    Bring on the day!!!!

    Bellagio buffet delivered. Not spectacular but a decent meal with a BOGO. Not worth it at full pop. Wandered over to Caesars. Now I remember why I just don't care for that property. As a slot player there just isn't that many machines that appeal to us.

    Stopped by CVS for some hydration as there is a difference between hot and fucking hot. Today is fucking hot. That said compared to the oppressive humidity in Ontario this is much more tolerable.

    Will grab a monorail pass for access to Peppermill tonight.

    Mask compliance is decent. PH last night they doing the point at their mask thing. Many many people wearing them lower than their nose though.

    We are really loving the location of Ballys. It works perfect.

    Great view from your window at Bally's! Your steaks at Ocean's One looked delicious. I like how you were up $150. I'm looking forward to more of your report. Good luck!
