Vegas: Night 3

Woke up and got a facial at the Mirage spa, followed by a quick hotel breakfast. Did some browsing at the Forum shops, but didn't buy anything (was too bummed about being down $195). Had a quick lunch with friends at Chinois, then went back to the hotel to take a nap.

Got sidetracked by the Blackjack tables on the way to take a nap, and spent 4 hours of hard work making back my money from the night before. Sat next to a big black woman playing 3 hands of $100 bets singing and clapping Hercules, Hercules, Hercules after every big hand. Sang with her after picking up $150 on double-split aces. Walked away up $75 (net, including losses from the night before).

Had dinner at Prime in Bellagio, and saw O again after 2.5 years. It was just as amazing as the first time. Wow.

Returned to the tables to throw down some serious cash before skipping town. Back down. Way down. No numbers will be mentioned, mostly because I'd rather have forgotten about it by the time I'm ready to have another go next year.


Vegas, baby!
