Re: How to eat cheap in Vegas

Walk to giorando’s near the entrance to Bally’s and ask if any customers are going to eat their last piece of pizza.

eat off room service carts. Use comps to get food.

Re: How to eat cheap in Vegas

Personally, I like to snack on the gunk that comes off of the older looking chips at the table. The taste of the gunk tends to keep me awake and alert and 3% of the time I don't vomit

Re: How to eat cheap in Vegas

Go to a place that has unlimited bread/breadsticks. Eat bread and defer ordering. Ask a few complex questions about the menu (for example, claim you're allergic to mercury and ask if they know how many ppm of mercury is in each dish), and then leave without ordering.

If you want to burn bridges, forget the questions. Just keep eating and/or stuffing your pockets with bread until they kick you out.

Bulk rice + bulk beans + 5 pound bag of potatoes + day old bread + meat that's about to be pulled off of the shelves (it's still good for at least a week and you can throw it in the freezer until you're ready to cook it). Invest in $20-30 worth of seasoning and you'll be fine.

Those are kind of hard to cook in a car.

Poker Player (with a job) looking for a place to rent in Las Vegas

Hey Y'all

I am reaching out on here because I am having a hard time finding a place to rent in Las Vegas. I currently have a cat and a dog, I am employed and am a single professional without kids. I would really like to rent a place with a yard for my dog.

If anyone knows of any places that are clean, safe, and can accept what current conditions I have any info would be greatly appreciated.

If you put your mind to it, anything can be a stove.

Can't remember if it was posted here or another forum, but someone reported a high success rate of scamming free breakfasts from Holiday Inn Express by walking in off the street dressed in office attire.

LOL. That was me. I used to do Uber for about 3 hours before my office job in Vegas September 2015 -> March 2016. I used to dress business casual and I would usually drop in the hotel park on Russel near the 215 to use the bathroom. A few of them put out a breakfast spread so I used to just go in and grab a few Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches a couple times a week.

I don't ever recall getting any pushback

Re: LVL Official Looking for Room/Roommate Thread (Read OP Before Posting)

Moving to Vegas and am looking for a room to rent or a short term rental for at least a month perhaps longer if situation is right while I find a more permanent residency. I am planning on arriving in Vegas in late January/ early February.
I played full time for eight years successfully on the east coast, the last two years were spent in the working world and am now looking to restart my career in Vegas.
Please PM me if you have anything available. Thanks.

Re: LVL Official Looking for Room/Roommate Thread (Read OP Before Posting)

Moving to LV in a few weeks. (exact date yet TBD) and looking to rent a room or split an apartment with somebody else, hopefully, poker minded. Area of town doesn't really matter that much prefer strip area or Sumerlin but really I'm just looking for a room to crash in and will be spending most of my time either grinding the felt or hiking. I'd like to keep my budget in the $500 range if possible, new to 2p2, trying to make some other posts to get PM privileges, thanks!

Re: LVL Official Looking for Room/Roommate Thread (Read OP Before Posting)

Im planning to go to Vegas this year again for WSOP and looking for a flat

What you're optimally looking for is to rent a timeshare, there are deals to rent them approx. 60 days or less before travel dates. You can PM in April if you're interested, however for most you'll need a car as the strip timeshares get very expensive. Most timeshares are usually 1BR with pull out couch in living room, full/mini kitchen and a small dining area. (you're typical 1BR condo).

Re: LVL Official Looking for Room/Roommate Thread (Read OP Before Posting)

Looking for roommate or roommates for the WSOP this year. Looking to stay 4-5 weeks starting June 1. I normally stay at Holiday Royale, but they increased the rent 40% from last year.

34 M, very relaxed person. I will mostly be playing cash all summer. I have also shared a room before for a week with a 2p2er a few years back.

I want to be able to cook bacon and eggs and make coffee every morning.

Re: LVL Official Looking for Room/Roommate Thread (Read OP Before Posting)

I get a house every year, from the first day until day 4 of the main (usually 42 days).
I'm a senior, but don't mind 420 and prefer hip-hop to rock (so not completely a fuddy duddy yet).
Am a serious grinder, played pro on and off since 2012.
Like talking poker.
Will have a car. Generally leave for Rio an hour before start time (to leave ample time for Starbucks drive through.)
Have not secured house yet, and the size will depend on interest here. I've done between 5 bedrooms (seven people) and 2 bedrooms. Always a pool, sometimes private, sometimes community.

No MAGAs or wall builders por favor.
