    Good thing you moved it up a day

    "Southwest Airlines has canceled all its flights in and out of RDU on Thursday and Friday and doesn’t plan to resume operations until at least Saturday, according to the airport’s website. The airline doesn’t plan to have employees at the airport either day and says travelers will need to rebook their flights online or by phone."

    DRP, I believe Flusher was referring to small fried wings RE: the bird who was flying around and landing near you

    Now, I don't know it for fact, but I tend to dismiss the idea that MGM would actually catch these little runaway birdies and fry up their wings... thank goodness you checked the buffet and didn't see any!!

    So we have completed our transition to our main location- Paris...Ubered down quickly... interesting factoid of the day, our driver said there are 91,000 uber drivers in Vegas... Wow, that seems astronomical to me if accurate... He said Uber's $300 sign up bonus caused the expansion..

    Standard Red room... not much a view.. very happy that we were able to check in at 1130AM... Also, the self service kiosks are amazing.. pretty long lines at check in, but we were in and out in less than 10 mins... Nice!!!

    Great win Mrs DRP!
    I’m glad you’ve already gotten to use a couple rewards. Tender looked great, but wish the steaks had been better for you. I’ve thought about trying the bisque, will next time.
    Seems like everything is moving along smoothly. Now get your gambol moving upward!
    Oh, and remember the $5 Eatwell coneys at Cromwell a shared snack later!

    FWIW. I was talking on the phone to a friend staying at her local.
    She, "a bat just flew by my window (outside)."
    Me, "bats are good luck."
    Within 2 hours, she hit 2 royals.

    The meal overall was still fantastic overall, the bisque alone was worth going back for

    Thanks for the coney dog reminder!!!!!

    A nice afternoon, I played about a 3 hour or so craps session... wasn't looking too good for the first 90 mins, almost had to go to the pocket, but then it turned around... cashed out for $500 - up $200... and met a new friend from Texas... MrsDRP took some relaxing room time, then went shopping, bought a few tops... said she "only played a little slots", which generally translates to, "I only lost a hundred dollars or so"... After a brief nap, now trying to decide about dinner... probably Mortorano's

    Saturday. Bet Boise State to win on the money line. If you do go Sunday then I would recommend Kansas City to cover.

    I always look at my bankroll as spending money for entertainment. If im losing it and not having a good time, thats like a double whammy. The dealers and the atmosphere make all the difference. Good luck getting your big winner today!
