So we get to the hotel (Stratosphere), and get checked in. The rooms are OK. Nothing special. A good price for a clean place to stay. The bathroom was nice enough - a big tub for my luxuriation! The casino was just big enough, and not too busy. The poker room is TINY. And the female poker director is very outspoken and funny - she cracked me up! The only thing that I really did not like about the Strat is the fact that it's sooooooooooo far down the strip that it's kind of a pain in the ass to get to and from. Luckily, we had Ray's car there so that we did not have to burn a ton of $$$ on cabs.
We get to the room, and take a nap. Yes - a nap. Grandpa Smokkee was sleepy. I finally gave in, deciding that a nap would allow me to stay up really late that night. Zzzzzzzzzzzz
So, after the nap, we get beautified and head over to the Rio to see who we could see. I see a few Pros:
And Fuel55!!! Not a pro, but just as good in my book! Plus, he had Jesus at his table.
Smokkee gets a call from Hoy, and we are directed to donkey table 161, where Iak, Hoy, Don and Weak have settled down for some WSOP cash game action. We chat a while and my girl Carmen heads over. I get the fashion update and the gameplan for the night: MGM cash games (aka donkeyland). A while later, Smokkee signs up for a satellite, where he ends up splitting the money with 2 other guys. Nice Job Honey!
After that, we head to MGM.

Ray says we have to get up at the ass crack of dawn, drop the little donkey off at the Pet Hotel, and be on our way promptly. Uggggggggg
I'm really excited to see everyone, including my girl Carmen, who I have not chatted with in AGES! I'm looking forward to hearing all the WSOP gossip and catching up with her.
I'm also looking forward to seeing Miami Don, Iak, Waffles, Fuel, Hoy, Blinders and all you other Donks out there right now - and meeting some new Donks like bayne. Missing from the scene will be Lucko, Peaker, Al, Poison and Kat. Boooooo! Maybe next time!
I really want to check out the Pussy Cat Dolls Casino at Caesar's. It's supposed to be burlesque. Should be kewl. I'm sure I'll have some pics to post latah. Not sure how much poker I'll play though. Maybe some blackjack. Hmmm.....may be a game time decision.
We are staying at the Stratosphere. I've never stayed there before, but have always wanted to. I'll give a report on the rooms and pool area. I plan to spend a good amount of time @ the pool. I'm soooo white right now!
Also, I wanted to give all you wine lovers a tip about Vegas that most peeps don't know: there is a wine cellar @ the Rio. It's kind of hard to find, but VERY worth the search! It's over by the Tilted Kilt. You have to walk down an iron staircase, and into the cellar. They have at least 25-30 different flights to choose from - HIGHLY recommended!
That's all for now. Viva Las Vegas, Beeeeeeeches.

And yes, this is me in the House of the Lord. I'm such a little angle, huh?
