I don't know why, but I feel some unearned loyalty to the last surviving Virginia Street Casino....even if it bears little resemblance to Bill Harrah. My trips are just not complete without a late night "Reno Trivia" with crusty ole Buzz. He sees me coming, and has a JD rocks poured before I even sit down.

But the data mining, Mother's Maiden name, color of first car, how many street signs do you see... crap and now an unwanted, unrequested Credit Check is way over the line. I wish the sports book would take a bet on them having a major data breach someday soon. THEN they will regret all the unnecessary data they've been storing on their customers.

Besides, the great shows in Sammy's show room are no more.

I know you do the Harrah's a lot, spdmrcht, .... say hi to Buzz but I have no intention of playing a lot there. Besides, I do not intend to get a blood test or DNA swab before being offered a "free night" there.

If only Siri's had a Hotel....I think I'd go straight to Triple Diamond there.

I thought the original plan was Siri's to have an cross walk across the
Alley to the hotel next door? That would of been great for both of
them.

LOL....Today, 09 May...3 weeks after leaving Reno. And TWO weeks after the unsolicited, unwanted "Sorry your application for a Harrah's VISA card has been denied....come a letter from some, " Comenty Bank:

"Congratulations ! You've been pre approved for the Total Rewards Visa Card......blah, blah, blah...."

Now HOW they were able to run a credit check without me giving them my SSAN is a mystery. But is also an indication of how screwed up Harrah's is today.

Pre approved my butt, I get them all the time from every one but none
from a casino. I really got fed up my last trip, we got there about 11 so we
could get a room we wanted, tried to check in, sorry, early check in is
between 1-4, no exceptions. then we find out there's a convention there
and wouldn't you know it, 1/2 of all the elevators were out of service.
Then we go to the main casino and the place had an echo from a whole
lot of the machines we used to play were now empty spaces. So now we
stay at the SL and go across the street for the keno tourn. Oh, then they
tried to charge me the Resort fee for free rooms we got for entering
the tourn. but I won one, when they swiped my card for the deposit
it didn't take and the clerk didn't notice till we were already in the room
and they called and left a message to come back to the desk, Not a chance!
I'm outta there!

Be honest now, JD. Had it been on your foot all this time?

I was wondering why I've been walking in circles for two months.

How was Springtime Street Vibes, John?

Street Vibrations would have been awesome if all these people hadn't gotten in the way...


Fortunately, a few beers purchased from these nice young ladies made the crowds more tolerable...

Hey boss, what's with the thumbnails? Post bigger pictures please. (Like 1200 pixels wide - or so). 6 buck beers? ... Pretty good deal considering the servers!
