Washington State Poker Ban

June 20th, 2006 · 3 Comments

I just read a disturbing article on PokerNews.com. Apparently, the state of Washington has criminalized online poker. The law doesn’t just prohibit the playing of online poker, but even the discussion of online poker! Now that’s a real shocker to me. If my site were hosted in Washington, I’d be guilty [...]

2006 WSOP Begins Next Week!

June 19th, 2006 · No Comments

I was really disappointed when Harrah’s bought out Binion’s Horseshoe and took over the WSOP. I was afraid that the event would lose some of its flare, but I was wrong to worry. Last year’s main event was so huge, that there was no way Binion’s could have handled it. As it [...]

Party Picts: 1st Installment.

June 15th, 2006 · 3 Comments

The hog roast and party last Saturday went extremely well. Having a whole hog roasted and sliced by Alewel’s Country Meats was a good plan. It was so much easier than BBQ the three briskets I had in mind. We probably bought too much, though. We ordered a 160# carcass which [...]

Vegas: Final Day

June 9th, 2006 · No Comments

Our last day in Vegas and at the Bellagio was very uneventful. That’s a good thing! Check-out went very smooth, our shuttle was a little late, but not by much, and check-in at the Southwest Airlines desk went smooth. It almost didn’t. Our main suitcase was 54 pounds, and they have [...]

What the hell? Its raining A LOT here in Vegas. The temperatures are now a lot cooler, but its wet and the strip smells like ass. Apparently, the Las Vegas drainage system isn’t designed for mass quantities of water all at once, so when it did rain, the strip smelled like [...]

Today we ate lunch at the BEST cafe in Vegas, Max’s Cafe. They have $3.99 burgers, chicken clubs, grilled mahi sandwiches, and appetizers. They have other items for $5 and $6 that looked pretty good, too. The best thing is they have free wi-fi access!! WOOT! That has proven to [...]

Vegas: Day One

June 6th, 2006 · 4 Comments

The flight out was an adventure itself! We had a stop in Tulsa before going on to Vegas and the decent was extremely turbulent. The pilot did as good of a job as could be expected, but we did get a 2-fer-1 special on our landings. We didn’t bounce too bad, but [...]

June 3rd, 2006 · 3 Comments

Tab and I got married Thursday, June 1st. What a great day. The civil service went very smooth and quick. We had a nice lunch, and then relaxed in a hotel with a jacuzzi room for the rest of the day. You can see more pics on the “Our Wedding Day” [...]
