I can't remember which bar this is, but I know that's a lot of tequila!
Well it was after midnight and my friendss and I were all drunk enough to not remember our names. So we did the logical thing in Vegas. We hit the tables. I wasn't too bad of a blackjack player when I was completely smashed. Of course I had my problems, even a Pit Boss made fun of me when I doubled down on a hard 12. But hey, I was drunk and it was a $10+ hand game. I nearly had a heart attack when I noticed one of my buddies talking to a Pit Boss, they seemed to come to some sort of understanding, and I wa about to pay him no more attention when I heard the Pit Boss say, "I've got a marker". It was like a movies in slow motion, I yelled "nooooooooooooo" and leaped from my table to grab him. For those of you who don't know what a marker is, I'm not going to go into some lengthy explanation here, suffice it to say unless you're rich, NEVER EVER EVER take out a marker in a casino, they will bleed you dry in minutes.
Looking good at 4 am on the strip
So I loaned my boy some money and we got back to playing, drinking free drinks thew whole time, when we were out of money we decided to go back to the wynn and get some sleep, it seemed like a simple matter to get from Treasure Island to the Wynn, they're not that far apart. Oh boy were we wrong. We stumbled out of the casino like three total degenerates at 4am, there were literally NO people around. We walked on and off the road, tried to hail a puke covered cab, and then wandered into the newest section of the Venetian, which hadn't been opened yet. At that point we lost track of my buddy Ralph, who ended up getting in a fight, and winning with some other random drunk guy. We met back up crossing the street, and stumbled into the Wynn. Of course the Wynn is a nice place so three ne'er do wells' stumbling in drunk at 4 am is not the image they hope to project, but we were guests, so there was nothing they could do. At this point there was only one thing we could do, get to a bar, which we did, and we polished off the night with some good scotch somewhere around 6 am, at which point we stumbled off too bed.
