Quick Trip to Reno
So let me tell you all about a little trip I took this past weekend. I made a quick little run out to Reno, NV because the Grand Sierra wanted to give me two free nights and free slot tournament entry. So I made the drive up and it was a beautiful, with the sun shining and great view. After a couple hours up 80 with Flo Rida and The Killers, I was ready to roll the dice one more time.
I asked for a room with a nice view and they kindly upgraded me free of charge (that just means I got a mini fridge and a microwave). I ran over and got a free pan for just being a member of their player’s club.
It always pays to get a membership to player’s clubs so you can get all of those comps. I registered for the slot tournament and it turns out their machines weren’t working, so they gave me a free buffet (worth up to $40). I played a quick poker tournament that I busted out of pretty early because these guys just kept re-buying and it turned into a crap shoot.
So I went to the buffet and added a few lobster tails to it (they let you add on a lobster tail for $5). Everything was comped so I figure “what the hell?”
After that, I had a few more drinks and continued to lose more money on their casino floor. Those slot machines were tighter than the face lifts I saw. I decided to call it a night with my pockets empty. A quick acoustic session lifted my spirits and I was ready to take on the next day.
The day began with a quick trip to the ATM and then lunch at Oceano sushi buffet at Peppermill. Amazing sushi! I don’t know how they get so much fresh fish in the middle of the desert but everything is made fresh to order and tastes great.
I figured a short after lunch keno session was in order and then BAM! $1,750! First time hitting 7 out of 7. I was back in my mode and ready to hit it.
So I left Peppermill and headed back to Grand Sierra for the slot tournament. I missed my round time and decided to just enjoy the evening with a nice cigar, some Manhattans, and a little gambling. I played some slot, a little blackjack, and ended the night with craps.
My final day began with the worst lunch buffet I have ever encounter and had the disappointment of eating. That Grand Sierra Elements lunch buffet wasn’t worth the $5 they were charging for it. Luckily I got it for free but I have never left a buffet that hungry before. I played a few more slots, without winning of course, and decided to call it a day. I earned enough points to play in a slot tournament they had going on so I went ahead and played and then headed out. Luckily those nights were free. Then I made my journey home and got some much needed rest. Thanks for reading everyone and good luck!
