    By here I mean Twin Peaks. It's actually Bourbon and Bikini week. I'm way to old for the bikini part hence I'm looking down at my phone enjoying my free food and updating the TR.

    Montecristo in Caesars welcomed me ( my money anyway) with delight. Nice selection of beverages too. I've chosen a Angel's Envy

    Happy birthday to you and your twin!
    Too bad he couldn't make the trip with you, but it sounds like you are having a good time for the most part.

    Good luck the rest of the way!

    Ok, so keeping up with a live report turned into a bust and this recap was delayed for work. Is it really a vacay if you have to work 14 hour days when you get back?

    Gambling - was a bust I did have a couple of more nice trips to the tables. A small 150 win at craps at the Pink Bird's place. this was sandwiched among three sessions with $2-300 loss. The dice were just not friendly for the week.

    Managed a nice run at Cromwell where I managed to $200 into 700

    And while waiting for the car to pick me up for the flight home I managed claw back an additional $ 500 at a Bally's double deck table. Video Poker was just an exercise is pushing buttons and lifting a drinks glass. The slots were even worse, the money didn't hang around long enough to get a second drink. While by no means a winning trip I came home with 25% of my total bankroll. I did have a blast riding the rollercoaster though.


    On the eats agenda , I was able to cash in on the free Birthday pizza at Grimaldi's , drank to much wine I guess and forgot to take pictures.

    While making monetary contributions to Caeser's I grabbed a Muffuletta, Caprese Salad and a Mango Lime Smootie (would have been better with Rum)

    I kept passing a sign in Paris for the St. Louis café that featured a French Onion soup on a fixed price menu. Soup finally won one night, and it came with a decent Rib Eye and Cheese Cake.

    You will need to use your imagination on the very large Cheese Cake with Strawberry and Blue Berries I had them just box it up and I placed it the fridge in the room for latter. It was great when I got back to it at 4:00Am later with the Late I picked up on the way.

    Although my twin wasn't along this year, I still had fun. Thanks to everyone for reading along and all the Bday wishes and encouragement. I now have a much higher appreciation for the numerous and fabulous trip reports on this site. I have another trip over July 1- 4th to New Orleans maybe I will try again.

    Thanks @pphold, I on track for Vegas again in late September. Not sure you want me as VP coach though apparently I'm really good at push button, lift glass , push buttons again - insert c-note and repeat.
