    So loyal readers, the time has finally come for me to return to Paradise. This trip is scheduled so I can put my NFL total win/loss bets down, and also bet some baseball and (god I'm a degen) pre-season NFL games. My last trip was all the way back in January of this year, a veritable eternity for the Vegas lover. This trip I am going to be solo so I have a plethora of items I would like to do, as well as eating at a totally new slate of restaurants. I plan on trying all these places as a dress rehearsal for my September trip with the wife, so we don't get any duds. That trip is for the IHEART concert so anyone who will be in town for that let me know. The following are items I hope to accomplish.

    1. Drinks and dinner with the one and only VegasMonkey is scheduled for Wednsday evening. My first time meeting a internet celebrity, I can hardly contain my excitement. Carbone for dinner, I cannot wait.

    2. Bacarrat with Phampau on Friday evening. This will be my first midi experience, very excited.

    3. Trying Craftsteak, to see how it compares to CUT, Jean Gorges, Homestead and Stripsteak.

    4. Thursday or Friday I'm hitting the pool.

    5. Lots of Blackjack, slots and VP. Solo = degen!

    6. Secret Pizza and the SREB everyone is raving about.

    Being as how this is me taking the trip you can expect to see copious amounts and drinking and foul language. At some point on the trip it is likely I will shower Crystal with my drunken affections. Packing is underway, flight leaves at noon on Wednsday. How am I going to work, its torture!!

    Good luck

    And I have had breakfast at Henry's many times and still have not tryed the SREB. I keep forgetting. So give it a try and let me know what you think.

    I had CUT once and was not impressed. Let me know how much you like CraftSteak?

    Will do. I had some of the worst service I have ever received at CUT last visit, awful. I half expect condescension at Joel Robochun but was blow away with the attitude I got at CUT. And I am the furthest thing from difficult you can imagine.

    Good luck. Keep those pictures coming. Not of shoes, of chip porn and slot wins.

    At the airport and I have my first win of the trip bbf86760310d820451badb786c96a4fd.jpg

    I swear I ought to teach a class on traveling like a boss. Just got done eating good old Chick-fil-A, I was going to wait until I landed to ear but that's almost 4 hours and drinks on a plane and an empty stomach sets up a bad first night.

    No flight is complete without my rant about pre boarding, this may not be a national issue but in the South there's always a fleet of people in wheelchairs waiting to board half of whom don't need them.
    Thanks for all the well wishes I hope to hit em hard!

    The CUT out here in LA is great but agree Las Vegas not so much. Jean grorge when I went there was ok and know there are a lot better places imo. Never been to crapsteak. Please Let us know how it was. Say hello to the internet sensation VM for me. He is a great guy and you will have some great conversation and fun with him. Go to Talon with vm (if you can convince him to go) and have drinks there it's a real treat.
    Good luck at the tables, have fun and I will be following closely.

    I remember there was a W4 Jackpots that was over $6K at MGM. I'm assuming it has hit by now?

    This game is amazing max bet 2 bucks just chilling progressive eligible but easing into it. I have given up trying to monitor my drinks because I cannot deny who I am. 3a16fbfa9b95dc399f3da5285315f8b7.jpg

    Great ROI. What's crazy is I've actually seen people hit hand pays on that game.
