Larry already left last monday, so Bernie and I depart from Detroit, just missing a giant snow storm. They cancelled all of the flights just after we left.
We got there on time and went straight to The Reserve in Henderson for a great buffet lunch. Larry and me did all-you-can-eat sushi for dinner.

Saturday, day 2. We decide to take a walk down the strip. The above are taken between our hotel, the Stardust, and Paris.

These are all of the fabulous Bilagio.

In the background, Paris. That Ifel Tower is 1/2 as tall as the real one. The feet of it come right into the casino.

The front lawn of the Bilagio hotel (far left) is this huge lake. To the right are Cesar's Palace, Mirage, and Treasure Island.

Larry and me ate a lot of sushi. The next day was raining, and Larry and me drove all the way to Boulder to pay our visit to the Railroad Pass, where I had my legendary 2 1/2 hour craps roll a few years ago. This was taken at Vegas Bay on Lake Mead on the way out.

The people of Boulder are damn proud. Larry and me did a marathon binge. We went out to Henderson twice that day, and I hit a single number playing roulete, just when I made a big bet. Late that night on the way back, we stopped at the Stratosphere to play some crapless craps at 100X odds. I had over $125.00 on the table and quit. The guy sevened-out two rolls later, so I won $145.00 in 5 minutes

Last day, on the way back to the airport, this is New York, New York.

Notice the grey skies - its flooding, and Larry totally wipes out a couple of pedestrians as he blasts through a huge puddle right next to the sidewalk.

After getting lost looking for the rental-car return Bernie informs Larry that his shirt needs a button-up on the bus to the airport.

Larry tries to smile-off one of Bernie's wierd looks.

On the flight home.

Not too bad a trip. Not bad. I actually won about $100.00 after betting thousands. Bernie and Larry also did well.
