    Vue bar is open, but those bartops don't allow FP.

    Lost $21.50 at Fiesta Henderson. Womp womp. Now back at my favorite locals spot for one more run at that progressive.

    Skyline is definitely one of my favorites, but it's more of a bar and less of a casino. When I'm on vacation I do like to have that big casino atmosphere and so South Point is my favorite local. But, the bartop 25¢ machines are definitely the best play in the city.
    Also, I love the breakfasts at Skyline. Terrific for about $2. I'll have to check out that burger at Joker's Wild.

    Stopped at Green Valley Ranch. Made $65 vulturing Ult X in the high limit room. Then played enough NSUD quarters to get to 300 points and won another $60 doing that.

    GVR has a VP tournament promotion on Tuesdays. A free entry for every 100 base points, up to three. Today’s game was BP Ultimate X. It was quite fun. My last round was my best - I’m sitting at number two on the leaderboard (not sure why mines different, but I’m the one w the ridiculously long number) - top 24 win FP. But the promotion just started and lasts until 8 tonight, so I fully expect to drop off the board by the end.

    Work was done and cousin and baby were napping, so I snuck over to Fiesta Henderson for their earn 300 pts, get free chocolates (up to two). Played FarmVille for a while, putting through $1,000 coin in at $.75 a spin. Ended up winning $70 and getting my two chocolates.

    Stopped into a new-to-me casino: Club Fortune. They are doing a free kiosk game (I got 4x points). Plus new signup bonus: earn 50 points ($1 slot or $2.5 VP per point), play kiosk game - I got $5 FP. Won $80 on Joe Blow, then lost $10 on shitty bartop VP watching end of VGK game. Lost my $5 FP on $.25 Airport Deuces.

    99.96% DDB was finally kind to me. Ran through $1,500 and won $350 plus $20 back from a promotion.

    Next stop Jokers Wild, where I won $215 on WoF, then lost $10 on their super old VP marines to get to 100 points. My frog was worth 2,000 points, which is almost enough for another double cheeseburger.

    Emerald island is a lot of fun. Good VP and lots of old video slots to play. The staff is the nicest I've ever seen.

    Skyline started off badly - lost $200 quick - no quads. Decided to do one more hundie. Ended up hitting a bunch of quads (maybe I’ll actually finish a blackout bingo card!) and got a lot more play in, but still left down $200.

    For some reason, I don't know why, I skipped the Skyline on my last trip. Won't do that again. And the Emerald Isle has 10/6 DDB? Have to hit that place as it's been years.
