    Trying the deep dish pizza from Chicago Brewing Co. (well I’m physically at Magnolia’s because the former was full)... looks filling at least, will report back :feedme::)

    Salted Caramel Brownie Sundae - yes there was a brownie underneath all this goodness :D:licklips: Didn’t taste too much of the “salted” part but it was all and all very tasty and celebration-appropriate :cool:

    Was there anything in that pizza? It looks like a loaf of bread with a dab of stuff in the middle.

    Yes, there was lots of meat on the pizza, and there was cheese baked at least partway into the crust... again, not my Vegas fave, but I wasn’t disappointed :)

    Was going to do the MSS brunch buffet they offered for New Year’s but I got a late start so it would have been almost ending by the time I got there and saw Fremont offered an all-day special buffet so did that (had a marketing comp due to multiple Boyd issues last trip); the desserts were all good (at least the several I tried) and the few things that appealed to me as I walked the buffet were tasty, but I wouldn’t pay cash for it :whistle: Time to play the ACG match play and see if I can find @JFO at QQQQ :cool:

    I think I may not be heading to the strip tomorrow as planned... I think my body is not going to respond well with a lot of walking; have to see how I feel tomorrow. Also, I really should be trying to get more play at 4Q, along with Binion’s and Jerry’s Nugget (need to use FP at the latter two as well). I won $30 with Boyd DT match plays (although the one at the Cal took WAY TOO LONG for them to find a way to get me the voucher :rolleyes2::nono:) and proceeded to lose $300 at nickel TDB DC ten play and quarter 8/5 bonus 10-play... and not *one* Score With 4 scratcher :confused: Oh well, had two meals comped (mostly) and should keep Boyd offers coming in... now at 4Q playing bartop DDB like a good little degen ;)
