Good Ole Sammy

With the recent addition of some half-and-half cream, I've upped the quality of my in-room morning coffee ritual significantly. Wynn, I've upped mine, now up yours.

But that's this morning as I write, not yesterday morning, which is where we are in the blog.


As usual, I chilled much of the morning away in the room, writing and eating punishment breakfast. The plan was to to and play in the casino for a while, and then head out in the rental to have some lunch at a local chinese place.


Unbelievably I hit yet another jackpot on video Keno. I hit a 5 out of 5 with those same numbers from yesterday.



It took a while to do it but it finally came in and then I was ready to go for lunch. My plan was to hop in the car and drive West on Spring Mountain until I found a place that I liked and if I didn't would go to KJ kitchen, which is where I ended up.


KJ kitchen is a very typical down home locals Chinese restaurant with no frills and a focus on inexpensive food quickly delivered. I've eaten here before and it was excellent and terrific value for the price.

After being greeted by the very fancy doorman, I was seated at the Single Lonely Diner table, the one nearest to the roaring aquarium pumps, the ones that keep alive tonights dinner choices.




I
t's pretty hard to beat a $6.95 lunch special compared to prices on the Strip. I opted for the Kung Pao chicken which comes with egg drop soup and a pot of Chinese tea.




I was in and out of there in about 20 minutes and down $10 including a decent tip.

Next stop was Walmart where I did some additional room camping shopping. I  picked up something to make my Little Giant coffee even better - a pint of half and half.

I hauled all my additional supplies up to the room and added ice to my 'fridge'. Room camping, or as one reader pointed out, room glamping - at Wynn is working really well. As in I haven't spent a dime on food here yet. And I'm up a couple of packets of mayo. Wynning!

After spending some time dusting myself off, showering, fussing about and so on, I went down and fired up video keno with three 5-spot cards. On my first $20 bill, the 5 out of 5 hit AGAIN.

This nicely fueled quite a long play. Eventually, I switched to video poker, playing 7/5 Bonus Poker. I always grimace when I have to do that.



Bizarrely, I hit a straight flush from three. It sure is pretty.



The profits on that dwindled down to nothing and I cashed out even. It was a shame because I was having a really good run on 50 cent video poker, and it turned on me like a cornered ferret.

If you've ever had a rabid ferret launch itself at your face, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, you can experience the same thing on a bad run of short pay video poker.


I headed over to Encore to the scenes of my triumphs the previous night. But it was nothing doing.

This was about the point that my luck turned, and I floated from having a pretty good win on the day back to even, and then down a little, despite some Buffalo chips being thrown at me.


I regrouped in the room, having a cocktail and some rejuvenation sandwiches - Dave's Killer whole grain bread, jalapeno mustard, pilfered mayo, jalapeno jack cheese, smoked turkey, some chips, and another cocktail.

It's actually kind of nice to be able to retreat and have a normal good ole sammy in the peace and quiet of my luxury room.

After that, I cobbled together a plan to see if I could win back some money. The plan, basically, was to go on walkabout and play blackjack at T.I., and then play at Mirage to get the 1,500 tier points I needed to get to Gold.
