So I'm pretty impressed with the house. We (Chris, Joe, and I) are a modest bunch and this house is about as nice as I'd expect a house for the three of us to be without feeling out of place. The back yard is super small but it has a pool and a hot tub for ultimate awkward bro hang out fest 2010.
After a night in the Venetian playing some low stakes O8 in order to take advantage of the free beer policy these fat-cats put in place at a casino and some blackjack where I dusted off whatever i had won and then some - wait I'm getting ahead of myself.
Chris had an epic idea at dinner time - we took some cash to the craps table. If we ran good we were going to Carnevino for dinner. Run bad? Grand Lux. I highly recommend this way of thinking. After 3 shooters we were getting ready for some buffalo chicken spring rolls but then Chris took the dice. He made two points I think and then it was my time to shine.Â Unfortunately, I am bad at craps in that I routinely bet pass line + max odds + 1 hard way. This is fine if you are making or missing but I was pretty much rolling non-stop for 30 minutes. I made a few points, one clutch "thirty three" to pay me out nicely and we hit Carnevino - I'd say in style but let's face it I was wearing a DeucesCracked t-shirt.
So now Chris and I leave the Venetian in the AM after he rolled in at about 4:30. We get to the house. It is sweet. I will put up some pics later on. Chris declines the 7 card stud hand flip for the PLO variety. Straight over set and Chris is now stuck in a room that looks like Willy Wonka painted it for the summer.
Our first few days here we are hanging with Joe's wife and kid. One thing I've learned is that juice is a hot commodity for little kids. Joe's baby (who kinda isn't a baby anymore but whatever) loves juice. She is all jacked up for it all the time.
Anyway, more to come. Run good all and see you at the home game!
