Stayed at the 4 Queens. #3 of us so instead of doing 2 rooms we did the Royale suite. There is nothing fancy it was adequate. The air-conditioner at the lowest setting was also barely adequate. Had a King bed, and a clean sleeper sofa. I am told the sofa was not too bad. Changed up my itinerary this time. Although I do not watch many sports, one guy who went was a sports nut so we did a lot of Saturday college, and Sunday pro football sports book time and betting. Since I don't keep up with the sports, I read the experts, so-called experts in the sports sections on the computer. To see how they were predicting who would cover the spread. I went O-5 in college football. On pro football I was 1-1. On the last pro game I doubled down, and then doubled down again and fortunately won that game to recoup some of my previous losses. With several sports Books downtown. Primarily the Cal seems to have the best set up. Though it can get full pretty quick. They still have their $15 buckets of beer for domestics, but they consider Heineken domestic. Hit the plaza briefly, there chairs aren't nearly as fancy but they were pretty comfortable. And hit the nugget. It was pretty crowded as well but comfortable. Also made by first video poker attempt. Fortunately from reading this board I was able to learn where to go, playing jacks are better just basic strategy. $0.25 machines at maximum Bet. Played at the boars head at MSS. I believe that was the only 9-6 pay table I saw. The Cal was I think 7-5. 4 Queens was I believe 8-5 or something close to those numbers. Drinks service while playing at MSS was excellent. Did not really play anywhere else. Played 2 sessions of 2 or 3 hours each, and left a small winner each time. Ate at MSS 2 times for breakfast/lunch. I am not a huge fan of that place but it's is good a buffet as you will find downtown. Also ate at the Fremont buffet one breakfast. It was adequate as well. Had a hit White Castle a couple times, until we were sick of White Castle. I believe it took 2 times. Did not eat any fancy dining places on this trip. But I did go to nacho daddy. I have been there before one time. Could not really remember how the one time was only that the margaritas were pretty good. I will say that I had the Fujita nachos, and while pricey at either 16 or $17, they were excellent and when I go back next month I will this at this place again. Played some blackjack, I believe exclusively at the eL Cortez. Had no luck over the course of several sessions. Played a very miniscule amount of craps and could never get anything going there either. We spent quite a bit of time at the sports book to slow the money bleed. Did enjoy the bands on the Fremont Street experience. Spandex nation played on 2 the nights we were there. They were as awesome as always. Always enjoy the street people as well. Had no problems of any kind anywhere Going back next month with the family. 14-year-old son going for his birthday. He probably has not been there and 4 or 5 years. But has probably been 6 or 8 times at least previously. The family dynamic will decrease the drinking and gambling. We'll probably do some hiking which we used to do a lot of. As always thanks to the board for their suggestions and tips that can be gleaned from the trip reports. Final note. I started with thread a couple of weeks ago: Am I the only one without a player's card. It seemed like I was one of the few without a card. After the discussion of numerous people the benefits they received with the card, and why they have the card, I fully intended to apply for a card at the multiple places downtown. But alas I did not.
