    Ok so when I got to front of line....I knew I wouldn’t be able to sneak in the flask of Jim Beam. So I took it out of waistband and said “guess this isn’t going in.”

    So I took a good swig, Walnut took a GOOOOD swig. Then we just passed the flask back to random people in line until it was all gone. Then trashed the flask. Good times!

    So we hung out at pool for a few hours. Fast forward until 4pm. Walnut and Earl split from Waldo and Wade. Walnut and myself had a burger from In n Out. Fries animal style of course. We then walked to Ellis Island for Craps session. Apparently every worker at Ellis knows us now. And I’m slightly embarrassed.

    Walnut and I walked up to empty $5 table. After about 5 point-7outs....we are down $160 combined! Did my coupons and hit both Match plays....hit a full house on $1 9/5 JOB on free play. +$88 I think. Then played at bar while getting a million Bulleit and ginger ales. Finally the quads rolled in for the trip.

    Will update more when I’m somewhere with service.

    Happy National Earl Day! :beer:

    June 9 is dedicated to those with a particular qualification and a genuine capacity for achievement. On National Earl Day we honor those legends named Earl.

    It’s an uncommon name these days, but hopefully, those who have the privilege of being so named have earned it.

    I'm really enjoying the continuing adventures of you and the W's. :D

    Some pics from VP at Ellis Island Bar last night.

    In for $100 and doubled up. Got 4-5 Bulleit and ginger ales. Then Walnut and I decided to play some blackjack. That went just as well. We were at a full table and our running count using Revere went to +30. Waldo left to use bathroom so I played two hands of $20. Won a split and a double. But next hand I went to two hands of $25. Dealer showed Ace. I took insurance. Nobody home. Drew to 18 on both. Flips over a 9.

    By that point the count was way back into the +teens and pit came to look so I just dropped back to $5. Next shoe the RC was in the -25 range so Walnut and I cashed out. Up another $100!! Had 4-5 more Bulleit and gingers. Walnut and I are pretty slammed so we decided to walk up to Flamingo for poker until Waldo was up at karaoke......

    Made about $35 in a nice half hour session if 1/2 no limit. Almost won another $90 when I went all in with the nut straight. Guy pondered calling for a loooooong time. I thought for sure he would. Oh well.

    Got the word Waldo was almost up at karaoke, so Doc and I walked BACK to Ellis Island. Arrived just in time for Waldo singing Hootie and the Blowfish to a solid round of applause.

    After watching the performance, back to the bar for more bourbon and VP.

    The night concluded for Dr. Walnut and I with steak and eggs at Ellis Island around midnight. We were both insanely drunk at that point acting a fool.

    I never saw Wade last night after the pool. But the Will Wade Get Laid bet is currently in question....

    While it’s impolite to kiss and tell.....although my boy did not technically get “laid”....He stayed in another hotel last night.....use your imaginations.

    Waldo on the other hand told us he played blackjack until 3am and some guy kept trying to kiss him on the shoulder. Eventually this person was removed from the casino.

    Having a bite at subway before moving our bags to Caesars Palace. Dr. Walnut is saying his goodbyes. It was a good run sir. He finished way up for the trip.

    Now just waiting until 5pm for VMB meet up at Bird Bar in Flamingo. Day 5 coming up!!!!

    Walking in front of Caesars next to two savvy gamblers. One sees sign on Cromwell and says to the other...

    “100 times odds on Craps! ...what’s that mean?”

    His buddy.....

    “Um....it means the have places to make 100 to 1 bets.”

    Sigh

    Things you hear in the Caesars Palace poker room...

    “I drove better than when I was sober!”

    In for $140. About 40 minutes in and my stack is...

    Nice run at EI! I love how select bartops now have 8/5 Bonus on them. 98.8% Bonus Deuces too for idiots like me who like to punish themselves. 20 seconds apart...:bang:

    Quick one hour poker session. In for $140. Out for $300. Should have been just over $500 but made a poor fold on a wet board on the river with AA. Had 3 baileys and coffees so I’m READY for day 5 in Vegas y’all.

    Another win on the trip this morning when Southwest called and said my flight was overbooked. Offered me a $200 voucher to go from Vegas to Chicago (no plane change) to Atlanta....then same plane I would have been on anyway from Atlanta to Greenville. I’ll take it!

    So at this point, my bet on the don’t is close to a push.

    For the sake of clarity, let’s just call it a pull.
