Harbor Island is definitely rough. I dated a woman there many years ago and her neighbor was shot right next door.

Some day you will have to tell me which bar in Green Valley this was at. I have lived there for 25 years and I know most of those bars pretty well and only have one guess.

It was a Doc Holiday's, I'm not sure what it's called now or if it's even around, I think they got bought out by the Bounty Hunters group. It's probably a dumb Dotty's by now. This was before 1999. They had some strange version of bad double bonus poker with a good meter, it was at more than 14k x 2 With the promo. So the locals added over 10k to it themselves. You know they thought it was due to hit. I can't blame them for being pissed off.

This was before people used the term Advantage Players, they called us "corporate players", among other things.

The owners told the bartenders and management to let us play. I assume that lead some people into thinking we were hired by them to play it.

The coffee shop is too small, and you're just a few feet from the crowds waiting for your table when it's busy.

The 50ish, male, caucasian blackjack dealer with salt and pepper hair is not friendly.



That would be Wayne. You just have to get to know him.

OK, you're being a bit dramatic there.

I have yet to be in a casino that I felt unsafe with money.



Somewhat true. I'd be more comfortable there than I was in Gary, Indiana (never again). But I'd be more comfortable betting/having any reasonable amount of money in most of central/southern America than I would at Longhorn. The longhorn type crowd is the entire reason there are so many gated communities in LV.

I think I spotted you and understand why you are so paranoid. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ved=0ahUKEwjsx9vW9ODQAhWKsVQKHS9yCigQjBwIBA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.halloweencostumes.com%2Fproducts%2F23512%2F2-1-45067%2Fmens-money-suit-briefcase.jpg&psig=AFQjCNFkb8Xccv8m65ZDrZab6eKCe96_3A&ust=1481159794689499

That photo of me was taken after someone stole my chain made out of a combination of money and gold at bighorn.
