The last 24 hours has been awesome!

Postby Phatferd » Tue Jun 20, 2006 9:58 pm

Last night at 6 my friend calls me and tells me to be at his house at 8 because we were driving to Vegas for a 24 hour session. I had no plans or ideas that this was going to be what I did last night. I was like, I have the extra cash. Nothing to do until the 21st of August, so why the hell not.

I am coming from Orange County, California and we made it there in 3 hours, no joke. We sit down at the blackjack table at about midnight and play until 9am. At 9 we go to my buddy's room (he was there with his girlfriend already) for a power nap. Wake up at 1130, eat some breakfast and get on the road to head home.

I broke exactly even. It cost me about $30-40 in gas and food or the night, but I spend that at bars here, so it was totally worth it.

Man, I'm doing the same sort of thing, but to Morongo...

me and my buddies are just straight up addicted and love playing the limit poker games and blackjack there.

I love gambling... (until I find myself $150,000 in debt)

I love Vegas.
Where did you stay?

If I lived that close I'd probably go at least once a month.
We have Atlantic City near me (NY) but the ride is a. They plan on building a direct rail from Manhattan to AC soon. That may be right up my alley. Vegas is better. AC tends to be pretty cheesy sometimes.

That's what sucks about the casinos in SoCal on Indian reservations. They don't have free drinks.
