    Even at the Pass. Lost $135 at Rainbow Club. Then to Eureka where I lost $150 on $900 coin in. Won $25 on the wheel spin and turned it into $41.25.

    Was able to catch up here late this evening.

    It's enjoyable, as always and I admire your style and grace, but there's one thing I've always wondered 'bout you...why do you ignore the Duomo di Milano of all downtown properties? This, of course, being the El Cortez.

    What up with that, 'Liza? What's you're issue, girlfriend?

    @FormallyTD - I’m still bitter that they’ve classed up the joint. New carpet. Pshaw! It’s not even the same ElCo any more.

    Back to the Cal where I’m down $400 on a $10,000 coin in session. Late night snack at Market Street and then back for one more VP session before bed. I’ve been listening to an audiobook about BTK - not sure I’ll be sleeping much tonight.

    You did get some Royals.
    Not the dollar ones we want to see though.

    I find suited Ace-5 kind of maddening! Not maddening enough to give back the 250 credits though :D
     
    First trip back since Nov 2019. Solo Downtown.

    Leftover club sandwich for breakfast. Snuck down on my lunch break and lost $200 on $3,000 coin in VP. No premium. And grabbed ice cream. Because ice cream for lunch is the best.

    All sentiments aside , I know they are important, El Cortez is the worst for VP players in Downtown now. Except some coin drops, they don't have anything playable.

    Just fully caught up. I didn't know that there are $600 meals out there. My eyes popped out at the inventiveness of the cuisine and the presentations of it at è. Definitely, something you'll never forget. And those tickets to the Raider's game, amazing. Even a non-sport person like me can appreciate being that close to a major game...and even I heard about how fantastic of a game it was. This is some hell of a 40th birthday! Oh, Happy Birthday @eliza!

    Yeah. That’s actually the real reason I don’t really go there much any more unless I feel like taking a walk.

    First quad of the day. Going to hang around DT this afternoon/evening. I grabbed an early reservation at Barry’s. Have some FP to use at Four Queens. Otherwise will just be VPing around.

    I preferred Monday overall. Tuesday was creepy AF.

    Had one of those roller coaster sessions. Was up a little. Then down a lot. Then mounted a comeback. Currently sitting even for the day on ~$12,000 coin in.

    You are bound to get a royal. I have never seen so many four to the royal only to come up short. It is going to happen. I can feel it.
