Biloxi Greens 

Within 30 minutes of hittingthe casino at the Beau Rivage, I found myself down $300.

Dropped a fast $100 at the craps table, then another $200 at blackjack.

I begin to wonder about the magic of the VMGCS. I decide to take another $100 and head back to the craps table, where in another 30 minutes I turn that $100 into $600.

$600 minus initial $400 leaves me up $200 at the casino.

$200 minus the $133 for the speeding ticket.

Up $67 for the trip.

On to New Orleans.
