Let's not go off on a tangent with the heart attack grill. Here's a piña colada diversion:

Pina coladas are the nuts. Enjoying the TR - I forget did you get Bobbys burger palace yet? If not, worth a try!

Re: TR: Burger Hunting in Vegas

A joke from yesterday: i went to the gym



Then we had a two-hour piña colada pool session followed by a night out. David Guetta at XS was pretty boring, although there were some fun people there among all those selfie posers which makes the ambiance a bit ridic. Last week we went to Intrigue which was a more social place imo.

Fast forward to 10am when our degen master orders breakfast from the room service and falls asleep while waiting for it. I try to kick him up for 10 minutes but it's not that easy to wake up somebody who's been up over 24 hours and just passed out.



The hash browns and scrambled eggs were 5/5

Today is a bodybuilding day:



7-course hangover lunch at Applebee's. We like boneless wings and boneless wings like us.



Cold stone is always worth a 10-mile drive. It just makes you face a tough decision: cookie minster or strawberry blonde?

What comes to poker, we have been mostly filling our slave duties under the poker rate quota. I think we'll be playing even less next week because we still have many things to do (=many restaurants to try)

Unfair setup to begin with. Your guys have been eating at In-N-Out and Fatty all summer long while our team has probably been on a Hesburger diet.

Re: TR: Burger Hunting in Vegas

Hello readers!

Im one of the burglar hunters on this trip. So many things have already happened so I will try to keep it short so it will not become TLDR; material.

Ate dozens of burgers. Best ones being at Fatburger, Bachi Burger and In-N-Out. (Honorable mention goes to Fuddruckers at The Orleans)

Biggest pot in poker so far was around 3400$. I was in co and villain had straddled. I raised pre and fired all streets on AQ9r 4 4 runout and overbet bluffed the river cause of huge range advantage and current clean image. (I had Q9 and villain ended up having A4, ouch!)

I also bought two pairs of the most comfortable shoes in the world (Nike Lunarglide 7) and made a birdie on my favourite golf course at Angel Park. (Managed to not exceed the shot limit of 11 on any hole ) We also saw Russell Westbrook at the Encore poker room, but I sadly decided it wasnt proper place and time to try to get an autograph. (Maybe a mistake as im a big fan)

We visited spearmint rhino and I got a lapdance from a girl who had apparently just given one to Phil Ivey. (Wasnt the best or the worst lapdance at that night) Also managed to get lucky with a 28yo tourist in her suite at the venetian. (pics or didnt happen)

Right now I am trying to decide between three options and you can help me pick the best one if you like: Option A: Skip my flight back home and stay in vegas and have a good time. Option B: Fly to Miami and see what the city has to offer. (I have heard alot of good things about the sights and poker in there. Option C: Fly back home to play Overwatch which I just bought before we left to Vegas.

Thank you for following and participating in our TR

Get on the list as KD and sit to his left, imo.

TR: Burger Hunting in Vegas

We started funday sunday at the Wynn buffet. Actually given our very favorable comp situation we started today there as well (and will start tomorrow too). I'll tell you how to do it: eat as many snow crabs, crab legs, ahi poke and oysters as you can. Then taste the Caesar salad, and have some big chunks of their beef ribs which are pretty damn good. I like to warm up for christmas and also have some turkey with cranberry sauce. Rinse and repeat this process until you can't walk straight. Finally stuff yourself with the carrot cake, guava panna cotta and a crèpe w/ strawberries and 3-4 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream. Use the crème brûlée as a palette cleanser. Then take the emergency exit because at this point you're about to explode.

Photos serve as a guide:
















If you get past this point alive, the whole Burger Hunting team salutes you.

Breakfast at Wynn buffet. I'd be eating burgers but i'm a comp slave. Korean ribs were the nuts, though. Then off to Mt. Charleston. First piece of fresh air in two weeks.

Then off to Aria for some Five-50 and hockey where USA gets hammered.

That's some good looking pizza. Do you do pizza in Finland?
Put the Fin and USA teams together and they still lose to everyone but the Czechs.

Yes we do. Pizza is imo more ubiquitous in Finland than in the US. It's around every corner, especially in one northern city where they put mayo on pizza on top of everything else.

TR: Burger Hunting in Vegas

I hate Wendy's. It's absolutely disgusting. Two burger hunters have a weird baconator fetish so we had to go there today, and surprisingly the restaurant was empty and the In-N-Out on the other side of the street was probably capped.



After that crap we realised that cold stone is closing in 20 minutes and according to gps we needed 19 minutes to reach it. I missed the turn to I-15 and had to drive through the south strip traffic. We ran bad at the traffic lights, especially on maryland pkwy which is so close already, so close! At 9.57pm we are one intersection away from the goal and clock is ticking. There's a police car in the lights so we can't even do anything stupid. Lights go green, i hit the pedal, we drive straight in front of cold stone and one ice cream degen runs inside to order at exactly 10pm (one minute worth of bad run). The fellas say they are closed, and we beg for mercy. And the verdict is below:



After the basic needs have been met, it's time to check Topgolf. It was very nice.



Tomorrow morning two guys are leaving (which explains the cold stone rush), and the rest of us are going back to Wynn. I'm leaving on Thursday and tassle will grind until Sunday.

I'm almost positive OPs are skinnier than 90% of Americans who refuse to eat like this.
