A TR (Puck Lines and Poker?) 8/6-8/9

Hey all,

Looks like Iím joining the Covid TR club. At the airport now. Staying at Elara on Hilton Points. No plans except for some puck bets and Catch tomorrow. Hopefully play some low limit poker and will be lowrolling craps. No promises except pics and poker punts.

Shoes Ready

Well I have about 200 in chips right now and I bought in for 500, so the craps table won tonight. Rando pics below

More pics of a very dead planet Hollywood




PH was a very frequent destination on earlier Vegas trips. Crazy to see it just blacked out.

I guess Vegas is just not the same right now.
Wish your trip is still blast.
And I like your style in shoes by the way. And I don't say that to all the boys.

Re: A TR (Puck Lines and Poker?) 8/6-8/9

In, and I hope you run good w puck picks. Who ya got? If there's a line that says "Massive covid breakout that only affects TOR-CBJ series," put me down for 20. Cuz screwing Toronto is always good for the Canadian psyche (non-Ontario version), and **** Tortorella just on principle. I'll also take any line that revolves around Matthew Tkachuk and pain.

(I am a Bruins fan. Currently all I feel is pain.)

Re: A TR (Puck Lines and Poker?) 8/6-8/9

Scooped the Isles on the puck line this morning (totally weird having games FINISH before noon) for a nice win. Passed the Nashville game. Gonna take the Canadiens straight up I think here soon.

The other beats continue though Bouchon is closed till next weekend. No chicken and waffles for me. Gonna have to find some other grub.

Leaning Oilers and (sadly for my hometown) the Canucks tonight. McDavid is too good, and Stalock canít stay in his crease to save his life, and the Canucks have definitely figured that out.

Iíll be honest, the leafs CBJ game scares the hell out of me. I very much cheer for the leafs, but Columbus keeps having guys go supernova (both goalies, PLD) for a game. Gotta figure Seth Jones is due for like a hat trick or something

And the Cosmo book is definitely open.

It would be very NHL to have Crosby and the Pens bow out before the Stanley cup playoffs technically start, which is why itís gonna happen

Quick update.

Milos for lunch octopus and salmon. With ďno barĒ I am sitting at a table for 1. Definitely weird . Food was great though.

Re: A TR (Puck Lines and Poker?) 8/6-8/9

Little catch up here

Had dinner at Catch in Aria. yellowtail sashimi and Spanish octopus. The Spanish octopus here is delicious. Highly recommended. Told the waiter to tell the bartender to make his best non tequila cocktail. Got a Meatpacker Manhattan for the drink (they serve it in a flask and let you keep the flask, kinda cool). Also very delicious. Do recommend.






Couldnít find the leafs CBJ game on at any sports book so grabbed some booze and headed back to my room where this view



Turns into this TV



The ending of the game was insane and a ton of fun to watch. Plus no need to mask up in the room.

Met up with a friend and caught the wild Vs Van game. 3 wins and 1 loss, not bad. Unfortunately there are only glorified preseason games tomorrow, but today was a good day of watching puck.

On Aria poker list. Not sure if it closes for cleaning or not overnight. Hopefully I can get on one of these crazy 6 handed plexiglass partitioned games.

I'd probably just watch the game on the TV and keep the view, but that is cool.

Enjoying the TR, thank you.

Congrats on Knights over Avs. Watched the last few minutes & OT hoping the Avs could rally.

Catch up post again

Played poker at aria. Was different and also not as much fun. 6 handed, in a plastic telephone booth, and thereís little to no interaction with the table. I love poker but this just isnít my jam. 6 handed becomes 4 handed real quick.feel like I had to stay on my toes the whole time or Iíd miss blinds, a bet, etc.

No real hands of note. I also got picked up (first time ever) after legit 17 minutes. Decided not to return. Down 135ish at the pokerz.

Re: A TR (Puck Lines and Poker?) 8/6-8/9

Just realized the repeater winnings arenít in the photo. Oh well. Killed the craps table last night and had damn fun doing it. Also ate

Momofuku for lunch (always great!) ramen and a pork belly bun. One of the better lunches in America

Beer garden for dinner (their version of a Philly cheesesteak). Was supposed to be MajorDomo, but Like I said ran into an old friend, took a detour.
