Live Airstream Dispatches - Wed May 23

I'm not sure what this is all about - but I want to be part of it!

It's a beautiful morning in Vegas! I had a great chicken fried rice carbo-fueled sleep, and feel much better.

The Little Giant is kicking out hot Lavazza Rosso coffee into my hotel room glass, and the gas station creamers I stole are adding that 'finesse' that you look for in a cup of room camping coffee.

First stop - $20 free play! Let's see what the day brings.

To the Tropmobile - Dispatches Tue May 22, 2018

UPDATED Wed 7:58am

This was my first serious stay at the Plaza and I was pretty pleased with how everything went. I managed a decent amount of coin in and 6 or 7 hours of $10 a hand blackjack. And much of that was head to head with the dealer, so lots of hands going by.

My guts are still not quite right - there's lots of gurgling coming from the basement.

It was probably not the best idea to eat the second pork truck wheel hub cold for breakfast. No, probably not.

I did a couple more hours of play this morning, and Beeeffffalllloooo has been very interesting today.

So was Freddy F. over here at the Trop.

Beautiful day today in Vegas, breezy, some clouds. Great day to sit outside at the Trop pool and look at used towels.

Happy to say that Uber has been reliable. I've had issues twice with the Lyft app, so it's been all Uberiffic since.


I really hammered the machines today, which means basically that I sat and pushed buttons for hours. It was great.

Plaza - Live Dispatches Monday May 21


Really enjoying my suite here at the Plaza - the view is great and it's pretty comfy.

Finally met Curt today, and he's taking care of Flushiepants business.

It was overcast today, not nearly as hot, so good for walkabout to the ElCo for those downtown deuces...

But first, stopped off at Magnolia's for breakfast.

I got two natural quads in the first five minutes. Penance.
Silly ole video keno... five out of five. 

I think I'll try Hash House a Go Go for dinner later on.


My lower nether regions have been kind of iffy since the poutine. Big fucking surprise there.

Hash House a Go Go may have been an error - or at least, my choice of Mack truck wheel hub sized deep fried crispy pork tenderloin may have been an error.

I finally met my new host at the Plaza, Curt. Sharp guy, enjoyed talking to him. Hopefully he will help me out with the room charges, which were pretty high because the EDC was on.

Big Red Drink - Sunday May 20 dispatches


It was a long day traveling yesterday, but I still managed to have a pretty good time. The bar at the Plaza was happy to pour Maker's Mark except - the bottle was down to just a wee dram. I was forced to move on to Jameson's.

The bartender was a very friendly woman, and I got to know a fellow who works with the Electric Flusher Carnival. Between the three of us we had a meaningful discussion about hot sauces and they introduced me to a new brand.

The bartender made me a drink that starts with'M' but I think is better called the Big Red Drink. She made it virgin because of my Maker's/Jameson base, but I was having none of that. Top that bitch up with vodka please and thank you.

Beware the Big Red Drink! It could become a habit...


It wouldn't be Fremont Street without Country Throw-up Gravy, now would it.

I still chuckle over the steak knife. Dude - it's a deep fried burger patty with coating. I can cut that shit with my spoon if I have to, to get the next oozing delicious bite into my gravy hole.

The sticker marking my ringside seat at the Four Queens is defiled and scratched... but still intact. I don't know who would stoop to this overkill, but they should know... I have more stickers. Lots, lots more.

I'm actually kind of surprised that it stayed up this long.

Beeefallooo was pretty fun at the Plaza with the 'vibro prairie tickler electro-action seat'. When the buffalo run, the seat vibrates like a bordello magic wand. Hitachi's, to be specific. The plug-in one.

As is appropriate with all things Flusher, the machine just down from me coughed up a $2,600 plus jackpot for some other mook. Good machine choice, sir, now fuck off.

It's pretty hot in town, but I headed down to the strip to meet up with some family and share a cold one or two out on a patio. It was pretty great.

Greatness continued as I finally found Big Money Haircut Funkhouser. Funk hosted me for the night, and what a great host he was indeed.

We started at the Diamond lounge in Paris where Freddie poured triples. I only ever ordered two and the second one lasted me through dinner, and beyond.

The Burger Bra Asserrie served up some yummy stuff, all covered by Funk's comp.

Even better, not only did he lead me to a winning machine, he lent me $20 to get the thing going. I guess I did my part because the $20 was a freeplay coupon, and I managed to turn it into $20 cold flappy cash for the man. Plus a bunch more for me.

Monday is another day, and Blonde is making up for the sticker war by pointing me at her favorite winning machines here at the Plaza. Yay Blonde!

Update on that - the favorite one was taken away. I wonder if it had one of my Official v2.0 Stickers on it?

Electric Flusher Carnival

UPDATED 9:33am

It's a gray rainy spring day in Flusherville so why not embark on a completely ill-planned trip to Vegas?


Apparently Funkhouser could use some company so I'm on my way, sparkling daisy pasties and neon green bikini and all. 

As with all things airline I have terrible luck. I'll explain later. The important thing is that in about 37 minutes I will be riding one of WestJets 737s all the way to Vegas. If the windows hold out. And the pilots don't strike halfway there. 

So it's Bon Poutine... see you in Las Vegas!

I'm excited... I'm #1!!!!!

I'm aboard WJ 1008 - the Spirit of the Pacifier.

Honey... I'm home!!!

9:33am Sunday

Made it to the Plaza and immediately spent some time at the bar.

Beware the Big Red Drink!

Got upgraded to a one bedroom suite. It's good to be the Flush!

On the agenda for today... drinklegamling and tracking down Funkhouser aka Big Money Haircut.
