So did you find out from her... how the little dirty blobs form on chips ?!?!?!?@FordPickup92 is going to die laughing at this one!
Congratulations for hitting the one year mark @satisfyingbutton ! It flies by quickly... yesterday I was making my "18 months in the hobby thread" and today it has been 3 1/2 years! I blame the delicious gummies that @inca911 forced down my throat at all these meet ups! Lmao
1) so many to thank... but the one that stands out right now was @MegaTon44 and his amazing wife Mrs. Amanda... Dan had an amazing set up in his unfinished basement literally running 4 tables almost like a casino but in a home game... during covid shutdown he finished the entire huge basement, hosted a meet up and let like 50 of us invade his beautiful new basement card room, but not only that, also made room for as many as he could in his beautiful home so we didn't all have to put out the extra cash for hotels! There were literally people sleeping everywhere! Lol
Every single meal, desert, in the rooms brand new towels and every single toiletry you could imagine... every single detail of this amazing weekend planned out to the T! It was absolutely amazing... still can't get over the Ice Cream bar... when I say Ice cream bar... I mean, 15 different toppings, chocolates, Gummy worms, diced nuts, every flavor of syrup, actual ice cream cups and spoons! Enough that would make a Baskin Robbins go "well dayumn!" It was the perfect meet up and these amazing people never asked for a dime from anyone!

3) well... I didn't know ANYONE had fond memories of Excalibur... I made the mistake of taking the "cheap Vegas room" exactly ONE time! The smell of 100 year old cigarettes in that place makes me throw up almost every time I go there... someone will say "hey let's go check out excalibur" and I just respond "WHY???" To be fair it is just dated but I really can't get over that horrid smell and yes we walked through in June this year at the convention and... yup .. it still stinks! Haha
But years ago when they came out with video Roulette I would walk between Mandolay Bay, Luxor and Excaliber playing the 3 machines depending on my streaks... I don't continue to play if I am totally off, I take a hike and reset before the next number crunching session...
so I was running well about 3 am tipping the lady $10 to bring me a Bud, a frozen Margarita and a Margarita on the rocks... every 30 minutes like clock work she was back... I'm sitting at Excaliber and a lady walks up and sits down beside me in a very short dress covered in flashy sequins... it's pretty obvious where she had been, but I love a great conversation, why not have a 3am talk about life with a prostitute sitting at a Roulette machine in stinky Excaliber. Mostly small talk but she had no issues admitting what she did and why. One of those things that I think we are all curious on how someone goes down that path. I was not judging by any means... just wanted to hear her story.
Next thing my buddies are waking up and come and get me for breakfast around 8am... I was up a couple hundred bucks and had a 5 hour talk with a woman that lives an entirely different lifestyle than my own... life lessons and different perspectives, I had gained so much knowledge into a totally ignorant subject that morning.
So if I had one positive memory of Excalibur... I guess that was it!
Again congratulations @satisfyingbutton I would rather a new member win something so please don't put me in the giveaways... just wanted to contribute! AKA (sitting at work waiting for an electrical inspector without a damn thing to do! Haha)
Wait, I don't want to know.
