10:30am Coffee, croissants, and $50 on red
We both need some coffee and something to chew, but first we stop by the roulette table and put $50 on red, because this early in the morning, that’s the color of our eyes.
The grogginess doesn’t last though. The electric red, yellow & orange colors, flashes of light, and the jingle of 3,000+ slot machines, make the whole floor feel alive, and then so do we.
And it's just 10:30am. This is way better than coffee, but still, a quick trip for some espresso and nosh from Joli bakery doesn’t sound like a terrible idea, and we do just that.
