    We are live from MGM.

    Redeemed BOGO monorail and came south. A quick drop in for a whiskey and we will head to Sahara and Westgate.

    Wife had a small but nice hit.

    Called an audible and moved it. Stay tuned. Hopefully today.

    We did forgo the circus circuit steakhouse. With our steaks at Ocean One we decided to deep six it.

    Glad you guys are safe. The last thing you want to do is end up at the hospital. Even with travel insurance, American medical services sure are expensive.

    Absolutely. Still not sure what really happened at the bathroom. I had a shirt with an Edmonton logo on it and I believe it started when he took offense the Canadians being back in Vegas. Either way he went across the bathroom... Not my usual tempmant but I worked as a bouner in my early days so sometimes its muscle memory. All good in the end.

    As always Peppermill gets it done. Great service, giant portions. Atmosphere outstanding. Time to head to Resorts World and then who the hell knows. Tomorrow we move to Lux. Liver hurts but it was warned and just has to hang in there.

    I don't know how you are doing it. I haven't eaten much and I feel so full. Probably from a liquid diet.
