    yikes. That’s pretty nasty (assuming it’s someone else’s and you weren’t giving it to your old lady in the shower last night and her head was hitting the wall some)

    If that happened I’d get my old lady to a doctor quick! That bitch would be suffering from alopecia! I wouldn’t even do that to a HOUSEKEEPER! Whoever was in this room last, was a bum, to put a wad of hair like that on the damn wall.
    But from the clientele I’m seeing here at the “value” properties (Harrahs, flamingo, etc) believe me, nothing surprises me.

    I know; we sat and thought about it..knew 3-Royal was better but, the way we were running, $25 is better than $0.

    Yeah I've seen hair missed against the tile at CET properties in the past too, but it looked longer and straighter than those. And always a single hair, so I never complained. And M and I are good complainers. Lol

    Well, here it is the “go home” day.
    Had a little mixup with our Resort Credit..they only applied $50; rather than the EXTRA $100 also..got that fixed and found out interesting information regarding resort credits...
    So, if a place takes rewards credits at 2:1, then it’s 1:1 for Resort Credits...
    But if a place DOESNT take rewards credits AT ALL (IE: Off The Strip in Linq) it burns your Resort Credits at 2:1.
    We’re going to get some GR Fish & Chips then burn whatever we have left on soda and candy for the ride home haha.
    We have $40 to spend at the moment.

    Just in Bako now..but not really any traffic (we took 95 down to I-40 and then cut over)
    Some closing thoughts..
    Vegas was about as I remember from 4th of July..maybe a little BETTER luck? As our money lasted us until the end, which were always happy by. Had a few decent hits to keep us going; could have had some monsters if cards would have connected.
    Kinda sad I didn’t even have the OPTION to play dice or UTH; as the limits were all $15 or $25 (and full!)
    An annoying thing was the food; Kris said she felt like all we did was EAT eat eat!
    It’s because barely anything is open, and it’s odd hours, and long lines..so if you get hangry, you can’t just duck in somewhere and get food, you gotta plan that shit out.
    We ended up using the $250 Resort Credit pretty much to a T, which covered all our meals but the Cosmo one at China Poblano.
    I’m 100% sure I won’t stay at Harrahs again..the damn shower with no door really DOES bother me, coupled with a shower head that literally feels like a Chinese water torture device.
    I like Fulton street food hall and the selection of machines..but just can’t take the rooms.
    Our next trip is “scheduled” for MLK weekend, at Bally’s, so we’ll see.
    It’ll be back to normal $5000 bankroll.

    Thanks for taking us along. Had the same experience ar Harrah's about ten years ago....not hair..but something equally disturbing. Yes...one bad experience is all it takes. Glad you enjoyed China Poblano!!

    It wasn’t the hair that turned me off..just that damn shower door! Haha
    The Harrahs room to me, felt like a tiny cruise ship cabin.

    No glass at all or the front half glass crap? Don't stay at Linq then or the new Flamingo rooms, it's just glass on the front half too. That's "in-style" aka "saves them money".

    Gimmick for sure. Reminds me of when you travel through the airport, around Sept 11.They have "heightened security checks". As if to say, "We don't really check too hard on normal days"

    Maybe the wife had Fabio over for a quicky, when you dodged her and went down to play alone that night. Smart woman, to blame it on housekeeping to keep the ruse up!

    I finally did at halftime of the Aussie Rules game; it was 6:15am and I was actually tired. :eek: I somehow won both bets though! The team I bet on only scored 8 points in the 2nd half. Lol
