Playing at Main Street Station - or Ston

It's been cloudy and rainy here in Vegas since we arrived late Saturday night. But the clouds have been pushed out by the smog and the sun is shining as best it can.

It really is smoggy - I can barely see the mountains to the west.

Somehow breakfast got way-laid by video poker at Main Street Station.
Breakfast is served, Flusher style.

Love The Loose Doose

Lappert's makes pretty amazing banana splits, apparently.

I was waiting for my coffee and someone had ordered one. They took a banana and in a surprise move, split it. A huge scoop of ice cream went on. I'm talking the size of Mike Tyson's fist. Then another. Then another!

The guy behind me in line and I started talking about it.

Quad Queen Rocks the Strict Rules of Parlay

Day 2 Sunday Oct 23

Slept really badly last night. Only got about 5 hours sleep so today was pretty draggy. It didn't stop our fun though.

The Quad Queen got her ninth quad of the trip before I got one.

It was a pretty exciting day though, with the Quad Queen demonstrating the Strict Rules of Parlay to perfection.

California Hotel Room Renovations

I can tell you first hand that the rooms in the west tower at the Cal are being renovated.

We're in one of them.

It's pretty nice, a substantial upgrade from the old decor.

Tubs are gone, replaced with glass showers.

We are the first ones to stay in this room, the safe was brand new and had never been used before.
