If your goal is to lose money at a snails pace while amassing free drinks, then your best bet is to park at a nickle machine and play one credit at a time.
Yeah, waitresses come around to the nickel slots about once an hour, from what I've seen.

They come around to the blackjack tables MUCH more frequently. 

The casino knows what's up.

Dear Miss Manners,

I recently repaired a relationship with my estranged brother and his wife. It was caused by her, who was close to my ex-wife and betrayed my confidence when I met my current wife by a) leaking private information about my doings to my ex which got back to me and b) saying rude things to my now current wife on social media. This rift persisted even though they had moved to Orange County ~15 minutes from where I live.

After several years, she reached out, and we had a long talk about the issues, and tried to patch things up. We've seen them a half-dozen times over the last 6 months, both with and without the kids, and it has seemed to be going well. She and my wife really seemed to be hitting it off. I have been clear with my sister-in-law that I won't tell her who she can and can't be friends with, but that it was important to me that if she wanted to remain friends with my ex, all I cared about was keeping my private doings private. 

Fast-forward to Thursday. She reached out to my wife mid-day asking if we had any plans for Saturday and inviting us [and the kids, who were still with their mom on Thursday] over for the afternoon. Without committing, my wife gave the impression that we were in, but hadn't firmed any plans. When she got home from work, we both agreed that we didn't really want to go this weekend, so we canceled.

I picked up the kids yesterday from school, and last night my son asked if he should return some books that he'd borrowed to his cousin, because his mom had told him we were going to see them. Which of course means that sometime between, say, noon and 6 pm, my sister-in-law told my ex that she had made plans with us and the kids. This plans did not involve my ex in any way, and are none of her business.

What should I do?

Sincerely, Hand on the Sibling Relationship Detonator

i still want to pound the snot out of you,The kids have a soccer tournament

Tough call,what's your gut tell you?As the years pass by I stick by the decent folks and sift the phony fence sitters out of the equation.IMO boils down to how much you treasure your brothers company/relationship.People can change but once bitten twice shy - Good Luck

Nothing that can't be solved by studying their system for a few minutes. You quickly observe which waitress is working what section on your initial walk through. Then when one of them starts their rounds, you b-line to a nickel machine in their section. After you get your drink, you back away from the slot machine, while you walk around and drink it. Once it is almost gone, you repeat the process. 

They definitely prioritize the table games though. As soon as you walk in, you'll notice that one of the cocktail waitresses is like ten times better looking then all of the others combined, and you automatically know that her section is the table games.

Sit her down, one on one, and lay down the law - firmly. Tell her that if she doesn't stop, she will ruin your relationship with your brother.

seems fairly innocent to me, knowing only what I've read in the post.
I'd blow it off.
but, that's how I handle most things until something obviously sinister happens

I think he said he hammered some of that out.If things are going somewhat smoothly,give it a 2nd shot.That way Bwarb took the high road.Some people aren't necessarily nefarious they just have big mouths and have to bump their gums-which gets them into trouble.If things don't work out a 2nd time then Bwarbs brother has a 1st class problem on his hands

OK, I will admit to things before giving any advice. I’m sure there is some depth of context/subtext I missing. I also tend to look for the most friendly read on things, some thing that used to drive a long-term ex girlfriend insane. I am also not much of a detonator person.

under the assumption that the kids were already part of the deal, I think saying “ i’m going to see your kids“ is enough of their business that it can’t just count as your business. granted, I don’t know how much she jumped the gun, I don’t know how much the kids were supposed to be involved, etc.

In short, again without what I’m sure is a boatload of context, An aunt telling a mother she is excited to see nieces/nephews strikes me as communal business, or communal enough to avoid blowing everything up.

Dig up some dirt on your brothers wife, and then threaten to expose her if she doesn't play nice.
