Time for my annual road trip to Del Mar.  Going to stop by several client casinos on the way, and host a private mixer August 7 in the Penthouse at the Barona Resort & Casino.

Took my Make-A-Wish friend Zoe and her parents to Lone Star Park for the weekend.  We visited with my good friend Aaron Gryder.  It was awesome. Check out the pictures here:
