Re: the official lvl low content chat thread

I thought I was balla because I sold a rack of reds for a $500 chip this weekend. Then I check out this thread and find out a game was running with 5k chips.

(This was in Tunica, not Vegas)

Yes, but only if you're properly rolled for .50/1 at Bill's and can tell us the best way to get there from the airport.

Re: the official lvl low content chat thread

Gonna be in town 1/9 to 1/14 to celebrate my 40th ****ing birthday. 2-5 unlimited hold them, PLO and other recreational shenanigans. Hope to be able to say hello to some of you LVLers.

Ugh. Not really a LVL question, but I know you guys can be trusted.

In SF/Bay area/Napa with the GF

Please recommend

A) a high end restaurant where I can do the multi course tasting menu. (Not French Laundry, already booked)

B) Japanese place where we can sit at the sushi bar and do a proper omakase

C) things to do aside from Alcatrez tour (already booked) and winery visits (also booked)

Cheers,

S


C)

Re: the official lvl low content chat thread

since you'll already be visiting the rock, i assume you'll be checking out the rest of the wharf. gary danko's right there.

unfortunately i cannot recommend any omakase in the city since i've never had the pleasure (first time was at blue ribbon per your recommendation, so i trust you'll find something for me in the city lol). i'm sure yelp can point you in the right direction though.

how long are you here? sounds like you already have plenty of stuff to do.

edit: i can tell you what NOT to do .. on the way to napa, don't make any stops in my hometown of vallejo.

Unfortunately, was not able to book a reservation for Danko nor Pannise. At least I got French Laundry, 1/3 isn't bad.

This city is so awesome. Would love to move here...almost did. Argh... regrets.

Living in OC is like not helping w/ my poker addiction.... where it's so boring that you end up making 13 trips to LV in 2012. (Yes, I counted them, 13).

Cheers,

S

It's spelled Fremont, people. Not Freemont.

F-R-E-M-O-N-T

That's my contribution to the low content thread for the day.

Why the Snacks hate? I think it is really good, though overpriced. The burger and the cheesesteak are both great.

Because for $10-15 ( especially when the OP of the topic wanted to use comp $)more you can get a much more solid meal.

Anything special in town or is it just the after Christmas rush? I know the games at Foxwoods have been nuts.

Re: the official lvl low content chat thread

sd is awesome. blondes everywhere. i go there 4-6 times a year to vacation/visit friends, but i'm trying to mix more vegas in. wish i had more opportunities in a year to go to both, but my job doesn't really allow it.

once i pass this next examination though i will be lined up to go into a management role... and i will be able to move pmuch wherever there's an opening. working full time/poker part time... better to live in vegas or live in sd?

Re: the official lvl low content chat thread

I hear you on NYC, been there 4 times and I love it. SD I love it too, have tons of family there, and was supposed to move there before I moved to diamond bar. SF haven't been there in 10 years, but I have a buddy that lives there and says its the same ish as LA just more touristy stuff... Never been to Seattle or Austin. I'm curious to why you think LA is overrated? Maybe because we live here? It has great culture, food, history, scenery, car scene, etc. I come from Phoenix so let me tell you, LA/OC is awesome to me. Here is my list of top 5

NY
LA
SD
Denver
Chicago

Lies...SF is so much better than LA. First off, it's an actual city. Not sure WTF LA really is (and it's where I live). I'm from the Bay Area, live in LA now and think SF is one of the greatest cities there are. LA's fine, but not that special.

I've got Chicago on my list too. Great city.

Well, the first thing is... to separate LA from OC.... it's actually 2 completely difference scenes that don't really commingle..... this is mostly because of traffic. (ie. for me to get to LA for a lakers game on a weeknight, it would take me 2.5 hours door to door) This is why Anaheim Angels have their own baseball team.

I guess it's all relative...but basically all the reasons I trash LA is because I feel there is NO culture, NO history....food is disappointing considering the ratio of great restaurants to the city's population.

Denver is awesome. I love it there. Would live there if there were actually any finance jobs.

As for Chicago.... it's ok but it failed to make the list for me because to me it's just a sh*ttier version of NY.

Cheers,

S
