In for all the pink drinks and fun!
Blue Diamond Saloon.
Play $50, get $10 sign up bonus. Play $1,000, get $50 bonus on Wednesdays. I hit a 4oak on the card of the day so I got a wheel spin and a mini bottle of Jameson. Played through $1,000. Ended up down $5 for the session. This bar is great. Also has a Naked City Pizza outpost inside.
That’s a tasty looking pink drink!
This is the stuff I love.
Turns out the play $50, get $10 wasn’t a signup bonus - just a Monday only promo. Plus the play $1,000 get $50 FP runs weekdays 8am to 4pm in September. Bartenders and patrons were very friendly. I’ll be back.
Early dinner at Sparklings. (May have second dinner later).
Sausage Pesto Gnocchi
Everything was good though not fantastic. If I was in the area I might stop in again for happy hour, but I wouldn’t make a special trip for it.
You always find the coolest off strip places! Love it!
At Eureka. Bartop NSUD progressive.
Boom again. Was up $325 after $3,600 coin in. Got $40 in FP which I turned into $532.5 by hitting more deuces on my last hand.
Other pics from Eureka. It sits just below Skyline on my list of favorite locals casinos in Vegas. Great bartenders, VP, and promos. It’s also a great place to watch a game.
Are these all Boulder Highway joints?
NSUD was at Eureka which is east of north end of strip.
Blue Diamond Saloon and Sparklings are west of Southpoint.
Pics Dump from Resorts World. Commentary to follow.
Following along!! Glad you've gotten some good hits so far and yummy food!
Hope the rest of your trip is amazing!!
I'm undecided about Resorts World.
New and Shiny
Nice Selection of Slots and Table Games (almost all table games were at $15 minimum)
Live Music in Both Dawg House (Band) and Cockfords Casino/Lobby (Piano Player)
Lots of Restaurant Options
VP Selection is Pretty Meh
Food & Beverage is Pricey - Things seemed pricier than their equivalent at Wynn.
Honestly, overall it just seemed a bit bland for my tastes. Nothing wrong with it, but there didn't seem to be anything that wowed me or made me think "I have to come back here!" I'm not sure what would make me choose to visit RW over Wynncore or V/P or Cosmopolitan which I assume it sees as its direct competitors. That said - I will be back. There are some things I really want to try - Starlight Lounge! - and maybe I'll feel differently on a second visit.
While there I grabbed some dumplings from the Food Hall. They were perfectly serviceable, but I'd place them a step below Din Tai Fung in the overpriced dumplings on the strip category. I wish I had opted for a foray into Chinatown instead. I also lost $60 slotting around.
Back to Palazzo where I lost a little bit of money slotting and then some more playing 8/5 JoB at Bar Luca. Would probably have played (and lost) more but the casinos alarm started going off and there was only so long I could handle the cacophony. Down $230 for the day at V/P.
Was 50,000 points short of cashing in the slot tournie. Maybe the luck will be with me at tomorrow’s session.
Tomorrow's Plans: Work (boo!), Slot Tournie, Dinner at Mizumi Teppan
Good stuff so far! Ouch at that AAAA2 at NSUD. But I guess you got two sets of Deuces to make up for it.
Hope to see you later this week!
Lunch at a new to me place - Mercato della Pescheria. 3 Course prix fixe lunch was $21 plus a glass of Soave for $12. Decent food - actually quite good for the price point. Sat right on the railing in the “patio” section - great people watching.
Calamari to start (this was much bigger than it appears in the picture but bland)
Prosciutto Sandwich - Very good but the bread was SO thick. Ate half as a sandwich and deconstructed the other half to eat as a salad.
Lunch took longer than expected so I had the Tiramisu boxed up to take back to the room.
