    My Trip Report

    It’s aboot that time a-gayne, you hosers. And of course what would a TriggerMN trip report be without a god damn snowstorm. Only a few inches this time, but it’s early October. We have two seasons in Minnesota—winter and road construction.

    Why the title? I have never eaten Chinese food. And I mean EVVVVEEERRRRR. It never looked appealing to me. But I perused the China Poblano menu at Cosmo and my taste buds started going off like pop rocks and Coke. Fortunately @wanker751 has agreed to lead me by the liver...err...hand and join us for dinner there on Sunday night.

    Mid-afternoon Sun Country flight outta the 612 with a free Mich Golden to pass the time. Yeah buddy!!!

    As soon as we arrive, it’s off to Strip House at PH to meet up with @lousyatcraps for dinner, then maybe a slot pull afterwards.

    There’s gonna be lots of this:

    And lots of this:

    Probably some of this:

    Maybe even some of this:

    Words to the wise.

    And Geotwink will be along!

    We’re gonna get tanked.

    No, we’re REALLY gonna get tanked.

    Hoping for this again:

    Featuring this guy:

    Could have a special guest this trip:

    But not these special guests. They are still busy consummating their marriage.

    OK, note that China Poblano is an Asian fusion restaurant. The fusion cuisine is Mexican. That doesn't make it "bad" but you are not really getting a "true" Chinese experience.

    Similarly, Nobu (Caesars Palace) is Japanese/Peruvian fusion, which I didn't particularly like, because I am more used to traditional Japanese cuisine.

    Nonetheless, enjoy and good luck!

    Since this is the first time you will have any type of Chinese food, let us know if you are hungry one hour after you eat it.

    LOL that may be why this particular menu intrigued me! I am looking forward to trying it.

    You got it. But we still have December!

    Me too. With a midwestern palate that thinks all spices need to be salt or ketchup, we’ll see what happens.

    This is pretty much true of any kind of food for me! I need to try to keep my tummy full of Alabama Slammers and Colorado Bulldogs and Washington Apples. :whistle:

    No Ubers available? That’s a new one. Back to the taxi line I guess. But we’re here, and 20 minutes early.
    Let’s find some booze!!!

    @lousyatcraps and I put in $200 each for a slot pull at PH. Played $5 Top Dollar and $25 WoF, netted $30 apiece.

    Now off to Linq to see Joe the bartender. $200 in on VP and FINALLY my first quad.

    Finally quad #2. All my multipliers are buckets O’ fuck (tm @Gaggles). 140 TC and only two dealt trips.
