    At the airport, will be home and in my own bed by 7am. Ended the trip -1780 not great but I've had much worse. 2 royals and 3 quad aces but that wasn't enough for a full recovery. Good trip, actually ate meals and saw a show will do more of that stuff in between the gambool going forward.

    So looking at my meals. I’ve only had a few meals here if you noticed I’ve hade more meals away from Aria than at Aria.

    I’ve figured out the hotel issues. I just keep the do not disturb sign on except when I go gamble and then ask them to clean room. And I pack everything away

    So far I haven’t complained or caused an issue. Yes. There has been a few but not going to let it ruined my trip.

    Only running into a few VFers

    Great scene! Congrats!

    Frontier red eye? Haha Curious how much was tonight when you booked it? Hope you can sleep on planes. I didn't two weeks ago. :( But it was a $20 flight! Lol

    Yep. Was $40. Round trip for 2 with bags was 177 total. I hate this airline but I can't pass on the prices.

    Insane game. So happy for Philly fans - now if my Flyers could put something together that would be great.

    Recap of a long day yesterday...

    Slept about 3 hours after an exhausting night at Omnia and dragged myself for breakfast with @newmans at MAG

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then went to see @Phampau and @VegasMonkey play some bacc at Aria

    [​IMG]

    The fact that they won shouldn’t surprise anyone.

    However, there was even more excitement when a young guy sat down and bought in for $5k (table limit was $1k-$20k) only to promptly lose his first player bet.

    He then pulled out another wad and put $4500 on banker and $500 on player pair (pays 11:1). Of course he rips off 8-8 for Banker with player drawing to a 5. Banker wins but he didn’t win the pair bet.

    He parlays that win and now has a $9k bet and places another $500 on player pair. Now he turns over a winning banker pair of 4-4! He won the Banker bet and Dealer pushes $9k (again he loses the pair bet).

    The young man then takes something off the top of his stack and leaves $14k on Banker but this time, he doesn’t play the Player pair bet. Of course he gets another banker pair when he flips over 3-3, but he wins that bet and the dealer pushes out $14k.

    High fives all around as the table erupts!!! Even though I had no skin in the game, it was exciting to watch.

    [​IMG]

    Some of us then head over to @broncofn’s suite to prepare for the viewing party- Pizza from Secret Pizza, sandwiches catered from Capriotti’s and enough alcohol and chips for about 40 people (even though we only had about 18 people)

    Many thanks habibi for hosting the party for those who were not provided with a comped viewing party from a casino

    @RockyBalboa is seen here making his Brady voodoo doll

    Before the game starts I head off to Cosmo’s viewing party with @BS, @Phampau and his wife

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    No milk Bar cookies this year but we got a fine selection of Mars Chocolate products

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    On the sofa in front of us is Odell Beckham Junior of the NY football Giants

    [​IMG]

    Our hero @Phampau has the stones to walk over to say hello; OBJ’s request for a selfie is politely declined by PaulMark but, the two chatted briefly about Donald Trump, world politics and traded recipes for quiche Lorraine

    [​IMG]

    As for the game, our resident Philly Fanatic @RockyBalboa was a nervous wreck throughout the entire game, but in the end, there were tears of joy when the final pass attempt fell down to the turf in the end zone.

    A side note- this is the second year that I was invited by @newmans to participate in a SB squares Pool and the second year in a row that we came THISCLOSE to winning significant sums of money.

    I won’t bore you with the details (too late, I know) but let’s just say that if Atlanta doesn’t miss that extra point attempt last year before the half and the Eagles went for a field goal instead of that trick play for a touchdown before the half this year, we could’ve eat eat eat for a long time to come!

    After the game, some of us went back to Aria for some bacc

    I apparently ran into @RockyBalboa last night outside of Cosmo. No recollection of that event. But there’s a pic of him on my phone. What the hell happened last night?

    so it looks like the parade is thursday, which is awful - we can't stay any longer than wednesday because of prior commitments elsewhere

    i am trying as hard as possible to lobby for going back to vegas today instead of flying home - as soon as the wife is coherent again i will resume my efforts, gotta cash this ticket for 5k sometime...

    He bet multiple times, large sums of money, to win close to even money. That’s really what it is, LOL

    this is the next installment of eat eat eat

    PAN ROAST!!!

    No lines!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I ordered a “10” and @newmans got herself a “6”

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So waitress comes by and comments that @newmans bowl looks darker and maybe she has the 10 and I have the 6... I dip my spoon in hers to taste it and “accidentally” scoop up a piece of shrimp- she goes “hey asshole! Don’t touch my seafood. Just taste the soup”

    Pics of the water I drank

    Before

    [​IMG]

    After

    Overall a disappointing weak 10 for me.

    Both you didn’t tell me. I told you guys I would take you out for pan roast.

    Mom just likes her other son more.

    surprisingly, that didn't take much convincing

    on a 440 flight out of philly, landing in vegas at 9, have a 1br fountain view at cosmo and car waiting for me at the airport - let's do this (again!)
