    Yeah. It's flat out the best gin I've had. At least for my taste. Another Oregon product I'd like to try is a single malt from Rogue Distillery of the Rogue Brewing fame. I just don't want to spend $60 after tax and licence to find out it's closer to Highland than Speyside.

    2nd the Megabucks, I do that too!

    1. This is kinda unusual, its not even good odds, but I play bingo at the Plaza..its weirdly become a thing midday when its hot or I'm tired, and I need a break, free drinks and $60-80 bucks, an hour not to have to think at all.
    2. Randomly bet on Sports, just no thought put in at all, low rolling a few bucks, based on the cuteness of mascot, and actually win regularly.
    3. Play the classic horse race at the D
    4. Take the Binions $$ Picture, so many have been done, its become a thing to see how old my hubs and I are getting over the years.

    I actually lost 3 lbs during my weeklong Halloween trip. I guess all of the walking that I was doing burned off the excess calories, since I was eating way more than I normally do at home, not to mention all of the desserts and whatnot that I was eating. :feedme:

    Ok, can I just say I hate you! LOL No offense! :blowkiss:

    I walk more than I ever do at home. I even go the gym in Vegas, but I still gain. I'm guessing it's the multiple upon multiple lemon drops and baileys!!

    Play video poker and craps.
    Eat at, at least, one buffet.
    Get stumbling drunk one time each trip.
    Rent a car and find something new to see and/or do...preferably not when I'm stumbling drunk.
    Lose weight...all that walking and no mid-meal snacking like I do at home.

    Well I usually gain a few too, so don't feel bad @Astribling . The pounds don't show up on the scale for a week or two, but then they're like "we're here to stay" lol. Takes another month to get them off!
     
    Comped at Delano - not sure what I did right!
    Planet Ho - best deal on a busy week, then rooming with friends :)

    Have at least one Sinatra Smash. Okay, maybe more than one.

    Leave the room curtains open for a glorious dawn view of the mountains.

    Sit at the bar rather than a table. Have convivial meal with people I've never met before and probably never will again.

    Feel dehydrated, no matter how little booze I drink or how much water I drink. Those little tiny comp water bottles are always worth their weight in gold
