They are a sister property of Longhorn in NLV. While longhorn has a website Bighorn doesn’t.

I was meeting Bobby at Cannery at 4:30 for all you can eat pasta (and 2 movie times tickets for $1200 coin in with 4x points, three crappy kiosk swipes, and a $20 food comp...) and was leaving South Point at 3:15 so I decided to go scout out bighorn to knock it off my list. Found a couple Harley Davidson plays so I figure I should get a card (with a ACG $20 fp for $10 coupon in hand). Line is 5 deep (all cashing payroll checks) with only one cashier so it takes me 20 minutes to get to the cage. Finally get to the window and the lady sends me to the side to fill out a new player form. I quickly fill it out thinking I’m again next and then the lady starts a second payroll check (Fish who the fuck still pays employees with paper checks? And Brock how the fukk can you tolerate that shit over and over getting Tony’s weekly money order?) I’m standing there glaring at her. After another 10 minutes (the line is now 15 deep) she gets back to me and gives me a card. I hand her my coupon and she says she will do it after she processes another payroll. I say I will do it another day and walk away heading back to the HDs.

One machine I wanted is now occupied so I jump on the other and hit the minor (with two amigos wearing cowboy hats on both sides of me watching like I’m a high roller playing $1.60 a spin) for $84 in like ten hands which also nets me $10 in free play for a jackpot over $75. I play it off on video poker and promptly leave to donate $225 on vp at cannery getting Bobby and me 2 movie tickets each.

All you can eat pasta at cannery: 3.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 out of 5 in Champaign). $10.99 with meat extra.

been to Longhorn and Bighorn, both dumps.

 

The Longhorn on Boulder used to have a low buying blackjack tournament that was pretty fun and I played that a few times.

Haven't been there for awhile but believe they still run those.

Sorry about the length but an TGF exclusive loaded with strong and unique advantage play information.  Can't fathom what could possible have been left out.

 

Mikey it is going to take at least 3 or 4 more thoughtful readings to begin to digest all that information so I suggest you bring home dinner tonight instead of your usual dining in at Mickey D's thing.

have not been there for a couple of years but they allow double downs after a hit and a few other very player friendly blackjack rules.

.Vino's at cannery is definitely a classy place but, like most places in Vegas, Sunday dress is still optional. 

 

Mikey send me a PM next time you are in town as I get about 4 or 5 times more in food each month than my fat ass can even begin to consume at similar quality places and will be happy to wine and dine you at least a couple times.

A friend was playing pretty heavy there all of last month (as they had 10x points everyday) but never made it over there. 

 

I know you aren't here anymore but do you know if silverton still gives out a shit-ton of MPs monthly for a token amount of bj play?
