In any of those properties, for anything that's facing the Fremont canopy & is not MUCH higher than about 50 feet or so, this particular form of "death" will be coming in sonic waves through a window that's going to be right up against the ass end of some of the most enormous speakers on the planet. With alleged "music" that's going to be cranked up to full warp drive thermonuclear death star implosion volume every night to blow the unlucky occupant at least halfway to China.

Even with decent elevation over the canopy, a room "with a view of The Fremont Street Experience" is NOT generally desirable. Instead, a room on one of the other sides with a nice view of the fabulous high-rise jail or the beautiful Greyhound bus depot is preferable.

Hmmm. I'm skeptical and a beef jerky snob. Can you recommend any particular brand?



Old Trapper brand is quite popular. It depends on if you like the jerky soft or not. That store has a bunch of different stuff, including made in the USA and imports. Lots of dried fruits, fish and shellfish. They also have a bunch of candy and Li Hing Mui powder available on just about everything.

I know people in Canada who make their own jerky so no brand. I like the stuff my local grocery store makes themselves.

So do they have the dried salted prunes on the pit and stuff like that? I'll have to get there.

Main Street Station is a good, safe choice. Have stayed there many times over the years.

Please note this does not reset the Martingale count either. You are due for two months the next time.

How did Boz get his Martingale count reset multiple times? He even got reverse Martingaled five times. Pretty good deal for the righties.

We reset the Martingale after a long show of good behavior. Sometimes a suspension for something borderline or based on a new rule will not be subject to the Martingale, like ZenKing's latest.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Welcome to the forum 'new poster'. If I joined a forum my first post would definitely include an analysis of Boz's suspensions over the last 5 years!

...and be placed in a totally unrelated thread.

Mods: can we move (or delete) this discussion from The D thread? Thanks. And thanks for all your efforts despite the occasional s#!+storm that gets blown in your direction!

I have had offers from the D and Golden Gate for years with fairly minimal play.

The current D offer is for four nights, $60 slot play, $50 match play, and $50 food credit.

The casino is louder than I would like but we usually enjoy our visits on each trip. We have been staying on the strip, but the consensus of opinions I have read (not including TripAdvisor) make it an option if it is not pool season.
