    Update:

    My sister just came back a couple of days ago. She said that if you are Hawaiian air pualani (platinum or gold) they are now checking your safe travels information near the vegas check in counter. That way you can go directly to the gate (after you go through security). The rest of the masses have to go to the gate to get processed for safe travels. I guess they still haven't figured it out so could be changing their procedures as they try different things.

    Hope you're having fun up there!

    Finally made it!

    What others say is true about the car rental center. The Avis line was probably at least 20 people deep. I was 3rd in line at Avis Preferred & it still took about 20 mins to get my car. Every person in front of me had some kind of issue & one pair of dudes wouldn’t stop asking questions :mad:

    Just got to the Cal, front desk had 1 person in line. They had rooms in the East tower (the one with the Buddha) available now so we took it. Smaller bathrooms, double beds instead of King & non-smoking but the rooms are clean & comfy. Didn’t want to try & change rooms to what I booked since the line grew to 6 people & only one person at the Registration desk. I hope someone comes to help her soon.

    Started day drinking at 12:30p. It’s 4pm & now need a nap. Not getting to anything we’re supposed to do (besides gamble) today lol. Down about $250, Blazing 7s helped me come up a little bit.

    Funny story. Quick Hits is my jam. I like the $1.50 Max bet ones usually. So I make my way there to play, my BF & BFF play too. Initially I get couple free game bonuses, winning about $60 or so. They’re not winning anything.

    THEN, my BF changes machines, gets free game bonus & hits 8 QUICK HITS for $1,500 or so. THEN, the rest of his bonus plays out, totaling almost $1,700.

    No more than 5 mins later, my BFF on the opposite side yelps out loud, then calls me over. He hit 8 QUICK HITS, winning $1,600! I’m stoked for both of them, at the same time wondering where the fk my handbay is...:(

    On the bright side, I’m making them buy me food all day today, including my Zippy’s chili cheese omelet from Market Street Cafe. No line to get in at 2:30p.

    This is the free “food”. It wasn’t very good. F8AA546B-88D6-413A-8C5D-71B2FDD10611.jpeg F2B952BC-9149-4CA1-AF37-F264063B834B.jpeg
    The mini pack of Tic Tacs was cute though. 119B2E3E-B14F-4EF1-B8B6-76CCA2C723CE.jpeg

    See? I could’ve sworn I read somewhere that it was included with Delta One tickets. Maybe not at HNL?

    Back to the room for the night. Down $500, nothing great to report gambling wise...yet.

    Maybe check out Fremont tomorrow for 3 Card action.

    I like that Cal is hopping again. It’s almost like it was in the before time.

    $15 craps at the Cal? Seems like Circa is getting away with the higher mins and the other casinos DT are trying to hang with the big boys.
     
    Craps in Vegas!

    Wow, nice seats on delta. Was that a pic flying over SeaTac? Been so long ago (like 40 years) I don't remember how it looked.

    Sounds like you got ripped off, the rooms in the east tower are deluxe rooms, the west tower rooms are premium so bigger, plus the bathrooms in the west tower are a separate entity so someone using the vanity won't disturb anyone in the bedroom area.

    Did they remove the plexiglass from the tables? $15 tables, were the tables filled or empty? And later at night did they open the 2nd crap table at the Cal? Just wondering.

    90's rock? lol lol.

    Have fun with your trip. Make sure you grab some of you BF's chips to make up for your losses, lol.

    @makikiboy - No plexiglass on any of the tables at Cal. Both $15 craps tables were open all weekend. Also, Monday morning there were a few tables open (BJ, Roulette) but no one was playing so they closed it up around 10ish I think.

    And yes, those pics were from our flight from SEA to LAS
