Playing Ms. Senior Grabass

Day 2 - Wednesday May 17

The weather here in Vegas is beautiful, with partly cloudy skies, gentle breezes, moderate temperatures - I'm told. I'd have to leave the casino to experience this.

I had lots of adventures today but stayed close to the Tropicana, venturing out only to Hooters for a coupon run and breakfast.

Feeling pretty tired, actually, given the events of the past week and the long travel days I've had.

Fortunately, it doesn't take much energy to play grab-ass with all the lovely senior ladies around here - you can't imagine my excitement when I found out that the Ms. Senior USA pageant is going on right now, right here at the Tropicana. (You can't imagine my excitement, because it is somewhere below that of finding a hangnail.)

As I usually do, I got caught up in the First Day Frenzy of Gambling and Drinking Particularly on Machines.

I summed it up this way to the Quad Queen:

I drank too much and gambled too much. I blame alcohol.
And gambling.

With my two night comped room offer at the Trop, I got $10 freeplay per day. Hitch - Tuesday's would expire at midnight. I knew it would be a bit tight getting from the airport to the Trop before the slot club closed at 12:00am but I figured I'd have time.

Since we were delayed, my little Flusher Feet hit the carpet in Terminal 3 at 11:10pm. Next, I rode the "assume the position, prisoner" bus to the Grande McCarran Rental Voiture Facility and Casino.

I'd gotten an email saying that my rental car was a Volkswagen Asshat, parked in slot F13. I wouldn't have time to change it. One Asshat is as good as another, I figured.

By the time I was loaded up in the car it was 11:45. Fuck!

I hauled asshat out of the facility and made the three rights to get onto the Strip. (Three rights don't make a wrong!). I got almost every green light on the strip except the last two.

With five minutes to go, I promptly missed the Trop valet driveway off Tropicana - construction obscured it. This cost me another red light and a precious couple of minutes.

I was out of the Asshat and waiting for Chico Enchilada to amble over to me in Valet with five minutes to go. I wanted that ten dollars, goddammit!!!

Chico waved at me a couple of times while he chatted with somebody 30 yards away. It was not just an ordinary wave. It was a meaningful wave - the kind of wave that says "I will be there very shortly and promptly, just as soon as I fuck you out of your $10 freeplay."

Finally, Mr. E ambled over, took my keys, car and three bucks, and I practically ran walked very fast straight to the slot club booth with my luggage. Two minutes to midnight!

I got to the booth and... nobody there. There was a sign stating that they closed at midnight. IT WASN'T MIDNIGHT.

Not a great start to my vacation, I was out $10 already, but at least I scored a bunch of adrenalin and cortisol and probably a silent coronary.
Fatbit proof, sort of, that I was at the booth on (Eastern) time.
I got my room, and a cookie, and hauled my stuff up there. I was exhausted but of course, had to hit the casino! By the time I hit the hay (and then went to bed) it was 5:30am my time.

I think that qualifies as reasonably degenerate!

One of the nicest things to happen to me so far was to recieve a $25 dollar donation from Margie O, with explicit instructions to carefully gamble it on Beefalloooo!

Wednesday morning I started my day by doing just that. Sadly, it turned to naught - but it did enable me to play enough to use two $10 free play coupons at Hooters.

Which both sadly turned to naught.

Thanks Margie!

Don't forget to keep an eye on the Poon-o-Matic Gamble Gauges on the trip index page - I'm updating them throughout the day as I slowly (and sometimes quickly) donk off my bankroll.


  1. What?! We can make gambling donations so we can vicariously live thru your trip reports. How big of a donation do I have to make to get you to play Bridesmaid slot or Cougarlicious?

  2. Love the report and especially the Poon-o-mattic Gamble Gauges! As always love following your reports, (Seadog67 formerly Tbone3336)

  3. You're in the green!! Way to go RF!!

  4. Your McCarran to Marquee Rewards both time is impressive! RedChip

  5. Sorry the Beefalooo did not cooperate! Best of luck on the rest of your trip!
