Las Vegas Memory Lane Trip Report: My First Time Playing Video Poker!

Note:  This is an older Las Vegas trip report that I am posting for the entertainment of Las Vegas addicts and anyone else who loves fun.  It was written back in 2005.  Most of this information is now outdated and some places mentioned no longer exist.

Monday – June 6, 2005 – Day Two of Ten

I wake up, exhausted and hey look – I have no voice.  None.  Awesome!   Head to the San Remo buffet.  Raw eggs, gross coffee.  Good bacon though.

Hit the slots again.  Won and put it alllllll back.  Typical.

Check out, grab my stuff and head to Caesars where I am staying tonight.  I get room 5202 in the Centurion tower.  What a nice room.   [2014 called, it wants you to know that I had to double check to make sure these pictures weren’t mislabeled.  This room is so outdated that I feel obligated to remind you that these pictures are nine years old and the rooms no longer look like this.]  The bathroom has a separate shower stall and tub.  It also has fancy schmany bottles of artesian water from Norway.    There is a television in the bathroom.    There is a fake balcony outside my window.

I head downstairs to gamble.   I try the Star Wars slots I’ve read about and lose.   Maybe another $20 will do the trick.   No.  How about another one.  Still no?  Okay screw you.  Terminator slots!   Hey, why can’t I get anything?  Not even a bonus?  Nothing?  Maybe even three dogs?  Please?  No?  Well screw you too.

I head over to a video poker machine.   As you may recall, on this trip I will be playing video poker for my very first time.   The pay table isn’t that great, but who cares.  I want to TRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY video poker.  So I do.  I get up to a whopping $52.   Yay!   I cash out and go back to the room.    It’s about 2:00 in the afternoon.  I’m still exhausted, I still have no voice and I feel like crap.   I take a nap.   That lasted for SEVENTEEN hours.  I did not wake up until 7:00 am.    So hey, now I’ve lost two nights in Vegas.   Great!

    I used to stay at the San Remo quite often. Did well on video poker there. Loved the steakhouse but forgot the name. Big red plush booths, dark, woodsy.
    Pool waa nice too; they had a huge waterfall to sit under.

      I would like to try Hooters one day. But it is never a good price once you factor in the resort fee. I just know I would get “stuck” there and not want to leave because leaving is a pain if you do not drive. If I am going to go degenerate, then your hotel has to be incredibly cheap.
