I still want to redo the two upstairs bathrooms. But, that can wait. I need a break from this shit.
And, because this is not a home-repair blog . . . I planned on spending this weekend working, particularly because I lost a day on Thursday when snow prevented me from getting into the office. I woke up Sunday, and drove over to Home Depot to return some backsplash tiles, and, while waiting on line, checked out Harrah's AC on my iphone. Comp room. 30 minutes later, I was on the road to Jersey.
I rolled into AC by 3:00, and stopped by Borgata to burn some free slot play I had built up and which was about to expire. I loaded my $150 slot play, and $30 bonus slot play, into a ten-handed "devil's game" and started mashing some bonus poker at $5 a rip. Fifteen minutes later, I had rinsed it all through and had $190 in the machine. I added a crisp $10, cashed out a $200 voucher, and drove next door to Harrah's.
The general check-in line at Harrah's must have been 2 hours long. The Diamond line had 3 people waiting, and I was checked in, and upgraded to the Waterfront Tower, within 5 minutes.
I spent the afternoon mashing a mix of 100 hand and 10 hand VP. I played for 4 hours, and dropped $100 (but, given the $200 I pulled from Borgata, I was still free-rolling). This was the hand of the day:
Around 8:30, I was ready for dinner. I had planned on just grabbing a burger; then I remembered I still had $189 in comps at Borgata. I hopped a cab next door and grabbed a filet and some cabernets at Bobby Flay Steak. After dinner, I went straight back to Harrah's. Pretty sure I burned a bridge or two at Borgata (burning through my comps and free play and not gambling a single dollar of my own).
I closed out the night with 3 hours of break-even black jack at Harrah's. I couldn't get a run going. But at least I got free drinks ...
All-in-all, a good weekend. And now, time to get crack-a-lack'n at the office this week.
