Ahh there it is. Truckstop glory holes are known for strep, at least that's what a friend told me.

In all seriousness, sorry about the strep. It truly sucks.

Thx, hoping to kick things up quite a bit in the next few months, my motivation is higher than it has been in awhile.

Thought I was better but woke up this morning same thing...I'm hoping to make it out tonight anyhow. Gonna post my goals for the month later this afternoon, wont go into too much details since I still want this to be a LVL focus but I have been reading a lot of the old best LVL and Goals threads and finding a lot of motivation in them, I really feel like my desire/hunger for the game is making a comeback and plan on going big this year.

Why cant you deposit onto bovada? Ive been playing/sportsbetting on there since i moved out here like 7 years ago. I did pull all my money off after the stanley cup though and was planning on putting some back on once football season got underway. That was only like less than 2 months ago has something changed? is it banned now? I mean i just logged into my account and everythings the same as usual..

Ever since WSEX went down, I'll never trust another off-shore again. There is NO such thing as a solid off-shore. I would give anything to play on Pinnacle again; but anything short of that, it surprises me that people still play off-shore.

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

Well I finally got around to doing a decent food porny food place pic review. Time to kick this Strep thing with an ancient home remedy...consume gratuitous amounts of food then soak in a hottub...so it was off to one of my favorite all you can eat sushi places in LV called Sushi Kaya. The place is in China Town and is open until 2 or 3 a.m. which is great, there is also a decent Korean BBQ place upstairs if you want to mix it up. It's a shame I've taken so long to do a review of this place since I usually eat here several times a month. Anyhow its AYCE from both sides of the menu (Sushi and non) for $25 bucks and delivers high and consistently on the quality for quantity for value scale. They let you order the rolls in half orders if you want which I recommend to allow you to get a wider variety. I apologize for poor pics from my crappy phone cam and bad lighting, the food is as ususal much more visually appealing in person.

So getting right to the pics...


Inside/bar



Here is your basic Gyoza/dumplings...I didn't order them and would consider them a waste of valuable stomach real-estate but they showed up at the table which is more or less a black hole at AYCE places so yeah they were obviously promptly consumed


Garlic Edamame...had a nice kick


Udon Noodle Soup...deceptively filling from the big wheat flower noodles


Sorry forgot name on this one it was not one of my usuals


Beef Bowl...seasoned well, nothing to write home about but I basically just play it as an extra protein block to break up the fish parade


Caterpillar Roll


The money shot! Seared Tuna, Cajun Albacore, and Tuna Nigiri...this is sex, from the ocean to the plate to my mouth.


Eel (Unagi) Nigiri


Rainbow Roll on the left, Mango Style on the right


Red Dragon on the left and Zizzy Roll (tempura snapper outside) on the right


Green Tea Mochi (aka skewered Shrek Balls)...rice covered icecream...also can see a little of the Plum Wine icecream in the foreground but that one is just meh


So yeah maybe check it out especially if your really hungry and its late...I will generally clear an easy 2000+ cals and 3000+ is not unheard of lol...please keep in mind your paying 25$ and its not Toro right off the runway but I think you will be pleased. I'll cover my other favorite AYCE sushi place in the coming month as well.

haha yeah my skating days are long behind me and I'm coming back up on 200 pounds now so...but hey maybe for a 6 pack or something?

Also Kaya has some cool sake mixed drinks, I usually just get hot sake which is cheap and decent and then a few Sopporos or Kirins but I don't think I'm supposed to drink on the antibiotics so stuck with tea/water

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

Played some more omh8 at Orleans...bout even when game broke so onto the 1-3$ ...up about a bi after a few hours (100 bb bi not the $500 Orleans bi) Was going to post August goals tonight but it is gonna have to wait until tomorrow I just got back from gym and am unusually tired, I woke up covered in sweat after not nearly enough sleep this morning b/c my AC coils had frozen over...had to unthaw those $##$%s and go get a new filter; I'm also probably still thrown off from the missed time from Cali and being sick after...gonna try to get some extra sleep tonight then see whats in the cards for tomorrow.

Feeling weak atm from missed time and sick but still ***** sht up in da'gym


Had an intense craving for one of these bad boys on the way home...for any of you non Vegas folks who haven't heard...we don't have Chick Fillets here; Some BS about the city being such a hive of sin that they think it would be bad for their wholesome image to franchise out here? W/e...you guys sell people diabetes and corn syrup just like every other fast food joint, get over yourselves and serve me some chick'n.


Ugh falling asleep as I type, I got to go crash.

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

Awesome thread......def needs more chic pics though.

Im coming out to Vegas in about 2 weeks and definitely am gonna look for some good games. I grind 2/5 for a living here in FL and am interested to see how our games are compared to Sin City.

Also curious if you've ever been to Mt. Charleston and is it worth renting some Harley's and taking a nice drive out there?

Had me curious as to what was up on bovada so i attempted a deposit just to see if anything had changed. Deposit hit account immediately and everythings the same as its always been... Have you attempted to open an account and deposit? Also where did you hear this news about them not letting new ppl sign up and deposit, etc.?
