    We're on day one of a three day weekend here in the UK and a casino trip is most definitely in the works.

    England has a serious problem that our government won't acknowledge. A distinct lack of craps tables is plaguing the die hard dice rollers that inhabit this small island.

    A relatively new casino in London has come to the rescue. The Hippodrome, formally a nightclub by the same name, has a basement with 2 full size tables and a friendly crew to ease our jonesing without the need for a 10 hour plane ride to Vegas.

    My partner (who will be referred to as T from here on in) and I will be heading south to London tomorrow afternoon for 3 of our favourite pastimes: EATING, DRINKING & GAMBLING (although not necessarily in that order).

    Gambling bankroll is £750 ($1100, based on today's exchange rate).

    I hope to post some live updates and plenty of pictures to give you guys something to enjoy while you are having breakfast (remember that pesky time difference).

    That damn place. I've only been once. Stumbled out at 7am feeling like my pocket had been picked and the early onset of a debilitating hangover.

    On that basis I'm going to assume that I had a great time.

    Other than 2x odds I can live with that. Just need to make a uk trip. Every time I plan a Europe trip I keep getting further and further east. My last trip was to Prague. Loved it. Now I want to go into Slovakia, Poland, Croatia, etc....

    Played Roulette online this morning and won £250 in a little under an hour.

    Hopefully that's a sign of things to come.

    T just threw her players cards at me and told me to find the ones she needs.

    We both have matchplays for a couple of casinos near to the Hippodrome so we will walk around a little bit to hopefully pad the bankroll before rolling the bones.

    A little traffic getting to the outskirts of London.

    Good music helped. England isn't known for country music like the US, which sucks given that's pretty much all that I listen to. There is one digital station that broadcasts in and around London which is the closest I can find to 102.7 The Coyote (which is all that plays in our rentals while in Vegas).

    We parked at the Stratford Westfield centre and will Gett (an Uber alternative) into central London.
