    Well VFers it’s been awhile since I did a TR let alone finish one, so what better way to mark it then the Funkhouser turning 50.

    I know it’s hard to believe, but it even happens to the best of us.

    We are Marking this as #TheWeekensofFunk. Arrived last night into Vegas on the Frontier red eye which was delayed a good hour and half. Some lightweights were partied out before even getting on the flight.

    In true Funk Fashion I didn’t let it ruin the night. Instead of going to bed we stayed up drinking and gambling to show we can still run with the big dogs.

    Here are some VP hits from last night. Overall we are down 400.00 but matched a few nice hands.

    We are back live and F’d up from the pool today. I got down early to stake out a couple of loungers at the Beach Club Pool and day drinking started at 9:30 am.

    I have a new favorite cocktail for the pool called the Go Pool Lemonade. It’s Ciroc Watermelon Vodka and another shot. Mrs F and I were sipping these and refilling every hour or so. All I know is around 2pm we needed food bad. Luckily a quick nap and some poolside food in the shade took care of things.

    Hats off to the hard working towel girls at the pool. Moving those tool bins is hard work.

    [​IMG]

    We spent around $220 at pool on bar and food. In hindsight should have booked the daybed. Still one of the best pools in Vegas.

    [​IMG]

    Those clean towel bins look heavy AF!

    [​IMG]

    Chillin in the shade. We outlasted the light weights, Changed pool neighbors about 4 times.

    Tonight we have show tickets and more gambling and drinking planned. Props to host for a great room.


    Not too shabby of a view.

    Btw Mrs F commented that this TR is unfairly biased towards pictures of attractive women by the pool and requires I go back and edit Content to accurately share photos of both genders.

    So expect a revision that is both genders friendly.

    We are back on Saturday morning. Friday was a little of a blur after diamond lounge since the drinking picked up.

    I am paying for it this morning as I am mildly hung over. Gambling has Been rough this trip as I have been unable to get any runs going. Just a slow steady bleed of losses.

    Best run I had was at VP starting with a hundy and running it up to $300 before switching to Bonus Dlx dollars and donking it all off. Had a little penny play with little to no bonuses.

    Last night Mrs. F and I went to see post modern jukebox at the mirage which was a great show.

    Here’s some pics. For those on the board who never heard of them, they take modern hit songs and arrange them in older musical styles and perform.

    Hope they last In Vegas 1OAK is a great venue for this residency.

    Dinner we hit the oyster bar at Harrahs and more drinks and gambol. Hit a bonus on Buffalo Gold for $80 enough to cover dinner.

    Back at the pool today.

    Postmodern Jukebox looks awesome but I read that July 27th is the last show and then it's gone. Hopefully, it lands at another resort because all of the reviews that I've read were great.
