    My Trip Report

    After coming to terms with out of control gambling in September last year, I am back! Booked first class to Vegas. Staying at The Venetian. Cashed out myVegas for a free ticket to the Tournament of Kings and Fantasy (saddest Valentine's Day ever) and a comp Excalibur Buffet (I am a masochist). I've got $175 free play which will be used strictly for winning drink money. I don't intend to gamble a single dollar other than free play. Will I be able to stay in control? Place your bets! :evillaugh:beer:

    If I can stick to my plan of not gambling I should be fine.

    A gambling addiction, 72 hours (give or take) in the 702 & desires to not gamble....this could be very exciting.

    It's almost like back in 2001 when I was wearing my lowly Milwaukee Brewers hat while playing Blackjack at The Mirage during the NBA All Star Break and NBA legend Ervin 'Not Magic' Johnson of the Bucks sat down next to me to say hello (because of my hat).

    Me: "You're a Privateer, EJ. You miss New Orleans?"
    EJ: "Man, was born and raised but I had a very serious gambling problem and had to get up out of there."
    Me: "Las Vegas may not be the wisest All Star Break destination, buddy."

    Just got in. Took the free shuttle for Grazie Gold to The Venetian. Used the invited guest checkin as usual. The nice lady upgraded me for free to The Venezia Tower. Also instead of $75 food and $175 freeplay I was quoted when I booked, I got $50 food and $275 freeplay! They sure know how to tempt you to gamble. Think I'll stick to some 30 cent The Gold slots lol. Wish me luck!
