Left Friday morning for a 10:30am flight. Landed at 11:30 or so went down to gather luggage then got in the Limo the Aria provided. Checked into the Sky suites. One bedroom suite and an adjoining room with two queens. Very nice accommodations. Sky suites area has food (Noshes) and any drink you want even alcohol. Again, very nice and great service. Had lunch at the Aria Café in it was really good. We ordered Greek salad, lentil soup, Cheeseburger, club sandwich and fish tacos all excellent. First session went well. Cashed in for 4k, placed 1100 on the don't and 800 on the do. (20.00 12 every other hand) Come out roll was a 6, put 600 in odds on the don't and after a few numbers a 7 came up. After that pretty choppy. Lost, won, lost, won, lost, lost ,won and so on. Played maybe 1/2 the hands in an hour as I didn't have a good feeling. Towards the end of the hour someone 7nd out so I played the next 4 hands and each 7nd out. Up for the session....+3200.. 2 12s showed up when I did have money on it! No seven or eleven on the come out roll at least when I played. No 2s or 3s at all.. Did play 3 more sessions the same way nothing to write home or on this post about.. lost 500 over that time. For the entire Friday +2700! Did go for dinner at SW steakhouse at the Wynn. (My favorite) Had Caesar salad and a new York cooked to perfection. Friends had bone in ribeyes. Really good! More to come later..

>For the entire Friday +2700

Excellent!

Very hedgy betting there sir. Can't argue with success, though, I guess.

No bonus bets (Fire).. only a few hands all day where players rolled more than 6 numbers. yes, there were some points made but only 1 out of 12 hands or so. At least during my 11 hours of standing there.

I stayed at the Aria my last trip a few months ago. That is a grand hotel - very nice.

By the way, if you are going to eat at the Wynn, save yourself some cash for the tables, and walk a block north to a small street taco shop....you will notice it because it is very busy.

The tacos are incredible - for $1.50 or something like that. They are the best food in vegas.

Pretty bold claim there! Do you have any more details on the location of this taco truck?

The best food in Vegas is Weinerschnitzel. My only regret is they took the one off the strip away.

Agreed unless your meal at the Wynn was comped. The rest of the party left the tip. In and Out run at 3am! Tacos were the next night!

Saturday was great! 9:00am tee time at Shadow Creek. What a golf course! One of the top 3 golf courses in Nevada. Great service, food and the fastest greens anywhere. Saw talk to some celebs and golf pros. More excited about the golf pros than the celebs. After that went to eat lunch at Lemongrass in the Aria. Best and freshest thai food I have ever had. Service was ok at best. Did the spa thing which was very nice, clean and great service. Had to go to Donny and Marie. Turns out it was a great show. D & M make you feel right at home. Very intimate venue especially sitting next to the stage. They were funny and the show wasn't too scripted. Marie's voice is really incredible. She is hot! For 50 something... Went back to the Aria and hit the craps tables. Walked around looking for a cold table. I think all 12 tables were jamming. Really busy and a good vibe. Played from 10 to 1am.. I always keep track of numbers and play. Same play for me as always....here is one round... 4, 2, 6,6,8,5,6, 7 out... Another hand.... 12. (had a 25.00 12 thank goodness).. 5,9,9,6,6,6,7 out.... Then, 6,9, 7 out... Then, 7 loser for me. This hand was interesting... 5, 4,4,4,10,10,2,3,6,10,4,12,4, 5 winner.. YUK! Best roll all night for the right side players. But No 30 minute rolls at all. After that I moved tables and same small rolls with a lot of ping pong. (Back and forth) Bottom line, I played another 3 hours or so and now +4200 for the trip!... 3am run to in and out...
Oh, just my luck.... I was playing facing the walkway and saw 2 women walking by themselves to the Mexican restaurant. As they passed the craps table where I was playing I waived to them and they waived me over. Went over talked to them for a few minutes we were definitely attracted to each other. told me she was from LA has 2 kids, divorced, and just came down this weekend with her friend to play baccarat and party. Baccarat? They were very very nice and down to earth. I said to myself, self, they cant be hookers and it is a pleasure to meet a girl who really might like me. I did think highly of her as well. That whole night we exchanged pleasantries and more small talk via text... Late that night maybe 1am as we were texting back and forth she said her friend liked my friend and we should go play baccarat together. Hmmmm... Liked my friend and wants to go play baccarat together where the minimum is 500 a hand?? I immediately went back to that working girl place. So, instead of going to meet them I had to text her. ( I don't have time for BS) I text...Shit just my luck. I have to ask, what kind of work do you do in LA? What brings you to Vegas this weekend? Gambling? partying? She replied, HOW insulting! Next time you meet a girl with two kids who you may like don't accuse them of being a hooker! I felt terrible. I cant tell you all how many times I have been approached this last weekend alone by chip ho's etc.... Just my luck, she could have been my future ex wife and I blew it... I still think she is a working girl as nobody likes my friend! That Ever happen to you?
