Menu Degustation is well worth the price for foodies.

Challenge: Become a costumed performer and get pics with a tourist from each continent (exclude Antartica).

Oh ok, a new term for me, thanks. In that case I'm still in for this, sounds like fun.

To whomever is organizing this, I make my own hours/schedule so just set it up and I'll be there. I'm less inclined if it becomes a late night thing (like starting after 11pm) but otherwise I'd love to join and learn more about Omaha.

yeah something like a day game once a week wed/thurs? would be the nuts...

I like the ideas so far for the photo challenge...I think I'm going to change things up from the original idea and select a number of the more 'single bullet' type ones (such as the 1000bb and Joel Robuchon's) ...should keep it from getting too monotonous and will be organic in that I can keep my eyes open/mind on the various options rather than a single subject/pursuit,

Keep the Photo Challenge ideas coming

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

btw could anyone with experience with the Aria daily mtts suggest the 1pm vs the 7pm for being better/worse? ...not too concerned with field size, I'm assuming the 1pm is larger, was more wondering if one were noticeably softer than the other? I know the 7pm must stretch pretty late at night which one could extrapolate might result in some sloppy late-game play for those not accustomed to the hours...

Yeah, that sounds great! I don't have the sway to be able to set up a private game like this. So I'm in when someone sets this up.

Yeah we can start a game anywhere as long as we have the people and are willing to pay rake. The biggest problem for any place is there's never enough players for a certain game and/or tables, dealers but as long as we're being raked we can start a game any time.

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

I might possibly be down for a game like this....I don't like sitting with other crushers tho lol. If we have to pay rake and have 6-8 it might be better to set it up at someones crib and just play rake free and possibly lower stakes like .5/1? haha...man I sound like a *****...we could even alternate spots to play

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

I should mention that I'd be willing to host at my place. I got a smaller one bedroom place right off the strip across from the Rio. Definitely have room for 6 on my dining room table. I have a coffee table that could seat 9 but sits low and would need more chairs and I don't have my chip set out here.

down for anything, would still be good for practicing Omaha...in that setting we could even discuss hands ect which would be nice

Out $135 for the night, feels like a win after being down $600+, I wanted to stay a little longer but was feeling kind of meh and my throats sort of sore.

Yeah, that's what I had envisioned too. I know I'm going to be dead money against most of you (I've only played Omaha for about 10 hours lifetime). But if we can talk hands out a bit and learn from each other, then I don't mind being raked and being -EV once/week.

$470 iirc. I never pulled the trigger, but damn do I want to. L'Atellier was only around $200 pp w/ wine and was amazing. I'll step up to Robouchon next time

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

gah...woke up this morning throat on fire. doc says strep...picked up antibiotic script, supposed to be "1-5 days" before improvement...that's an awfully big range. supposedly won't be contagious though after a day or so on these meds.

I'm finding a bit of irony in the fact I play poker handling chips exposed to thousands of people from around the country/world every night and haven't been sick in a really long time then I take a little vacation/trip to Cali and bam...so yeah $#%k you California

Guess I'll go about hashing out my goals for the month tonight and getting some reading done...really hope to be good to go for tomorrow night, I'll let everyone know where I'm heading so you can dodge the germs just in case haha.

I wish, I should probably come up with some satisfying like that ...in fact the only likely culprit that comes to mind is my gf made me stop and take a shower in one of those truck stop places otw out there b/c I was leaving pretty much right from the gym and was apparently smelling the car up (well the actual deal was I stop and get the shower and get bonus...entertainment...for the duration of some of the drive), anyhow the place was a disgusting dive and I probably left more dirty then arriving.
