I am awake way too early this morning. But I have to be. Because it is my last (and only second) morning waking up on the Las Vegas Strip during this trip. I have coupons from Lettuce Entertain You, which includes a flat out $20 off Mon Ami Gabi. No purchase necessary. There are also coupons for $10 off Stripburger, $15 off El Segundo, $25 off Joe’s and $30 off Eiffel Tower Restaurant. You can sign up here for the 2018 coupons.
BUT before I eat, I must play. Cromwell Ultimate X video poker:
The walk to Mon Ami Gabi:
I ordered Eggs Benedict with coffee and the entire meal was covered by the coupon. Sweet!
I resisted playing in Paris because I always lose here. And I always follow that up by going degenerate. And I have to check out of my hotel and move to Fremont. This horrific move was brought to you by Dr. Desert Heat, in a collaboration with Nurse Stupid Lack of Bus Stops on The Strip.
I walked from Paris to get my stuff at Flamingo and then back to Paris to catch the bus. Because stupid. I was intending on taking the SDX. So I let the first Deuce go. As someone was boarding it, she threw her lit cigarette into the trash can. Why. So I yelled at her as she was continuing onto the bus. She ignored me. Because of course.
I am still waiting for the SDX. Yep, waiting still. Some more waiting. And waiting again. And still. And some more. Where is the god damned bus. I quit. You win Las Vegas. I get on the next Deuce bus that comes. And take it to Fremont Hotel. Where I check in, look in a mirror and see that I am completely burned from waiting for the bus. With sunscreen on. Oh great.
I am in room 616. It is a bit smaller than my last room here, and that room was small. I don’t have room photos because shitty blogger. But I have some views!
The air conditioning in here is not working properly. The thermostat is also a liar. The top right knob will not move any further to the left so maybe it is actually set on 40-something degrees (why is that even an option) but it will not go below what it claims is 70. But it isn’t, because it is warm in here.
I am sunburned and cranky so first up is a nap. Guys, I slept for six hours. I usually don’t even sleep that long at night in Vegas.
I was up and back out at 8:15. I made a beeline to El Cortez to play my Buffalo slot machine again. Look at her go!
I left here up $260. My next stop is The D. This is my last chance here. I have been trying for awhile now to get back on their radar. But I cannot seem to get anything going and it is just straight loss. Tonight I am trying a final $100 and then it is good bye forever to this place.
I lost that $100 so fast. On Buffalo. But because degenerate, I am going to go back and try it one MORE time in the future and play video poker. I am just not going to do that on this trip because FUCK YOU The D and your stupid name.
I had $10 free play at Fremont that came with my offer. I tried it in a Cleopatra Keno and lost it. I grabbed a donut from Dunkin Donuts and called it a night.
