    So far this game has been awesome:
    • Pens are up 2-0
    • The suite is mostly Pens fans
    • Mike (host) is super nice
    • I got a wristband for food, which I’m pretty sure wasn’t supposed to be included with my ticket, but I’ll take it. (May end up paying for it in the end, but whatevs).
    • Wes McCauley reffing which is always a treat.
    • Marc-Andre Fleury in net. Love seeing Flower play - even if it’s for the wrong team. BE7609D3-44BB-4718-8FEB-33BC8BC1BDFA.jpeg 3BC8A329-66E2-48CD-A9F2-E7091B6EC453.jpeg 1B0F571D-0319-447A-A93F-177D93C01D13.jpeg

    Glad you're at the Pens' game, not the Canucks ... lol (check the score).

    Congrats on the second Royal!

    A third royal? I can’t even imagine. I don’t know how much more heavy gambling I’ll be doing. I’m going to bounce around Downtown tonight cashing in vouchers and playing off some FP. Checking out tomorrow morning and heading to Henderson. Might check out Southpoint or M or might just hit up some local Henderson places - undecided.

    Random pics from last night.

    Had a lucrative quick slot session on my way to lunch. Somehow this is my first time at Le Thai - I’ll definitely be back.

    Their short rib fried rice is insanely good. Especially after a few hours of drinking at Vue Bar!

    Stopped by El Cortez to cash out since I might not be back down that way. And caught a few good hits.

    I would recommend going to Henderson or South Point in the morning. M Resort is a cool place but the majority of their slot machines are progressive games. South Point has a huge variety of games from old to now and good VP. Henderson is just friendly and fun, a much slower pace than anywhere else. Regardless of choice, good luck.

    Thanks for the advice. I love some of the Henderson casinos particularly Skyline and Emerald Island. And as a video poker aficionado, I’m a little embarrassed that I’ve never been to SouthPoint.

    Next time!! I was very impressed that the transaction was as quick as it would have been had I used a CC.
