    Feels great to be on the road again visiting a new casino
    Decided to come up a day early and hit the outlets at Harriman ny
    They have a fat boy Ralph Lauren polo outlet and I managed to do some nice damage
    My new oakleys will replace my old ones
    Uggs for the wife,

    Been an expensive pit stop

    Hitting a quilting store on the way tomorrow but should be in casino after lunch

    Hopefully meet up with a board member tomorrow night and again hopefully find a spot

    Have a great visit and good luck at the casino! Hopefully the weather will cooperate on your trip.

    Always good to be on the road visiting new places along the way.

    Nothing like a near 70 degree, sunny February day to start your trip!

    Win some dabloons, Mr. Liman. Have fun.

    A friend of mine was there yesterday. Sent me a few pics. Looks nice. He was waiting to get a seat at blackjack.

    East coast is warmer than west coast. I saw potential record temps for NY tomorrow. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    I'm waiting for the heat in Vegas. Can't wait. Cold here..for Vegas.

    Waiting for a seat,that's like 1978 Atlantic City


    I'm not that patient

    It's new but if they don't want to open empty tables for players not sure if it's the place for me

    Neither am I. I give it 5 minutes at the bubble. If a seat doesn't open up...there's always tomorrow.

    Man here today, So. Calif, the high was about in the id 60's. That is somewhat chilly for us Calif boys. I grew up in the mtns so it really does not bother me that much. But on the other hand, I do enjoy the warmer weather, not hot, but just nice and warmer. Gets down to the middle 30's at nite for the next 10 days or so. Warmer back east than out here that is for sure. Just sayin.

    my wife wasn't feeling well last night almost put a kibosh on this trip,says she's ok to go on
    Guess we'll have to see how she's feeling later or tonight
    I'm sure once she's in her zone and sorrounded by slots she will feel fine
    It's her drug and she is an addict

    Hope she feels better and is up for the road trip.

    BTW, if she's an addict (your characterization), you're an enabler. :D

    The hotel portion is beautiful
    super friendly staff everywhere in hotel
    We arrived before noon they put us into a room immediately
    Rooms are best out of all new casino hotels in ny
    They seemed to go the extra few bucks to offer superior rooms


    I did not win my case trying to get room price down,she apologized but that was that, I didn't push it,I was happy to get corner room right away


    And for the duck,a most excellent shower head with a shower big enough for 4 people
    If I'd give del lago standard room an 80, this hotel gets a 90 for standard room
    Comparison the last hotel we stayed in Nevada,sunset station,although sunset was suite,the quality is more around a 70

    It's all brand new, the towels are plush, the sheets crisp,you can still smell the underlay of the carpets
    Problem is it's too new,not everything is open,like no coffee shop,there are workers everywhere working on floors,doors,etc


    We stood on line for our freebie play,I got15 bucks turned it into 11 dollars
    As fast as I did that I turned 1000 buy in to 700
    It was quick, not painless

    Lots of confusion at table
    Dealer was completely lost
    At one point I had rolled a 10 and he didn't move a don't come bet to ten
    He insisted I rolled a 5 and neither the dealers,stick,nor box,nor pit recalled my last roll
    I told the pit I'll get 1000 dollars it was a ten if he'd look at replay
    Everyone at table was shouting it was a 10
    Finally,the box said,ok, you want it on 10, she told dealer to put it there
    The player yelled back,no,it belongs on 10 not because I want it there,that was the call!!!!!!!
    Many more mistakes,same kid
    I cut him some slack,everyone has to learn,he didn't cost me any money,but good luck if you need to find any kind of rhythm here to roll

    15 min,3,4,5 odds

    2 tables open,easy enough to get spot when I went over

    My wife is up 5 dollars

    We're taking a break,got some soothing sucking candy for her dry cough,throat
    She's ok for now

    We went into the town of Monticello to grab a sandwich at Monticello bagels

    Not sure how Monticello managed to make itself a bigger shithole then it was 10 years ago
    I guess real estate speculators and businesses have no faith this casino will help them at all
    There's little around here
    Some fast food chains, Walmart and a diner or two
    Hope my luck changes later

    A flag made out of bagels

    It’s easy to see with the decorations they cater to the Irish population

    The chips are so new they have sharp edges

    Expect to spend at least 30 minutes at cashier cage on line

    Hang in there Liman. I forsee a very nice win coming your way! Why?....Because Old Top said so!

    Hope the wifey feels better. Give her $1,000, put her in the middle of 50 slot machines, & I predict a very speedy recovery.

    Good Luck.
