I swear it was NOT me who gave it to her. I'm guessing the person who gave it to her is the same person who traveled here with you from Australia ;)

Milwaukee's strip club situation is an utter joke. Our best clubs (one of which is great) are on the outskirts of town. Instead, visitors to our fair city are forced into ghetto joints like Arts and Solid Gold. Milwaukee is a weird city like that. We also built our huge casino in an industrial area.

Garbs have you seen the river and the lake yet? These would have been top of the list surely?

Myself and a couple friends took Garbs to the casino after bar close. Kind of a sad place at that time of night on a weeknight, so it was kind of a downer. It didn't occur to me it would be like that. So we were there for 15 minutes at most. Good news is that in the span of just over 5 minutes, Garbs proceeded to first use $100 and then $40 more to play roulette. I convinced him to walk away when he hit and won $216 (so up $76). Pretty productive 15 minute casino visit :)

I used to go there to play poker if I got kicked out of wherever I was for being too drunk. Other than that yeah.

Haha Dan that was going to be put straight back down on the table but I didn't want everyone just to stand around and watch me gamble, normally though I wouldn't leave unless I was at least $2-300 up (or more often down :) ) was a really good night though, had a lot of fun with you and "Long Steve", thanks a lot for showing me around.

Milwaukee is a cool little city and it still surprising to me more people don't get out for cheap NBA, people honestly take for granted being able to just rock up and watch a game, I would kill for that... Keep up the good work with running sector 7 too would hate to see that die due to apathy.

Thanks to everyone who shared some insight or advice, I had a great trip to Milwaukee and would love to come back some day.

Also I'm in Miami at the moment, feels like I'm in a different country from the Midwest, it's nearly 5 am and the music is still pumping, shaking my window on the 5th floor of the clevelander. Crazy town but a lot of fun, must be a big distraction for young NBA players who end up here.

I consider myself a good card player. My claim to fame at a casino is on two diferent occasions, I sat at the black jack tables up at Onieda, and at the time they had $2 minimum bet.

So I sat down with $20, played eight hours straight, and walked away both times with $20.

Cheap night for entertainment. As for the one in Milwaukee, that is a god aweful, ugly area. Garbs, your trip sounds awesome, glad to hear you are tasting America.

This gives you good perspective as to why the Bucks many times aren't prepared to play on the road against the Heat. Those guys are out all night before games when the team travels down there.
I don't tweet much, but when I do, it is the same garbage you get from me on here:
