    My Trip Report

    Headed to the Aria October 10-13 for my yearly guys trip (3 total, counting me). Two bedroom suite at Skysuites. Planning on heavy gambling sessions on craps and BJ and fun drinking sessions of BJ, pai gow and 1-2 NL holdem poker. Plan on eating at Bouchon and Aria buffet for breakfasts, Julian Serrano, Estiatorio Milos and Five50 for lunches and Sage, StripSteak and RM seafood for dinners.

    Friday night we have a bar crawl planned on the strip (Encore-Wynn-Palazzo-Venetian-Mirage-Caesar's-Bellagio-Cosmopolitan-Aria-Monte Carlo-MGM-Mandalay Bay). Rule is only one drink at each casino.

    Saturday we are planning on some serious gambling at the Aria, some drunken gambling downtown at El Cortez and cigars outside at Rhumbar.

    Sunday will be sports betting all day at the Aria, then watch the Cowboys game (them) and then the Eagles game (me). Sunday night will be more serious gambling at the Aria.

    Leave on Monday.

    Check back on here for the live updates.

    Sounds like a great itinerary! Do you have bars already planned out at each place?

    Julian Serrano is great for lunch, just enough so you have a meal but don't need to lay down after!

    There are no specific bars chosen for the bar crawl. We are basically going to walk into each hotel listed and just pick something. Any suggestions?

    I'll recommend Vesper Bar at The Cosmo. At Monte.....if you're a beer person then The Pub is the spot.

    Nothing beats watching football in Vegas - except maybe a 4 team parlay where my Giants beat your Eagles to make the bet a winner. :)

    We plan to do something similar and will hit the Bourbon Room at Venetian. We are also going to the upstairs part of Andre's in Monte Carlo to drink cognac and smoke cigars.

    FYI-

    Casa Fuente is closed in the Forum Shops. but the cigar shop at Caesars along Appian Way is carrying some of the Fuente brand and the guy really knows his stuff.

    Cigar bar @ Andres was hot, small and packed. The cigar selection and liquor selection were depleted and underwhelming.

    Vesper makes great Sazeracs if you're into that drink.

    I'm jealous (and exhausted) reading the itinerary. I'd need a week to cleanse and decompress (did I mention I was jealous?). Good luck at the tables, sounds like a great trip.:drunk:

    If any of your group likes craft beer, you really need to include TAG lounge at the Quad in that list.

    I left early this morning and got to Vegas early. I had a few hours to kill before the rest of my group landed, so I played some craps and BJ. It went well:

    The room was not ready, but I just got into it. We have a shot in the room to do then we are headed to the Wynn to start the bar crawl. The BAC calculator is coming along.
