    My Trip Report

    Back again it seems :). As I write this, I'll be leaving tomorrow for Mecca for another 2 (possibly 3 day if I don't get killed lol) excursion to Vegas. This time around I initially booked Ballys as a comp for the TH and Fri with the expectation of changing to Paris or PH (again like my trip in Oct) however I ended up being too lazy to change when those room offers came up a few weeks ago and, more prudently, many reviews showed the Jubilee rooms better than the standard rooms at Paris or Ph so that will be interesting. Either way, after how little time I spent in the room last time, I figured it doesn't really matter since I'm center strip and I'm not there for the rooms.

    Bankroll will probably be around $1500-2000 for the two days. Leaving DC at 3:15pm and getting into Vegas at 5:30pm which should give me ample time to get dinner for once ha. This time in addition to blackjack, I'm going to try some slots (and VP) so suggestions are welcome as I bring those of you who follow on Tapatalk (I'm getting better at it :D).

    I have a slight bit of "work" Friday morning- we'll see if that actually happens- but other than that it's pretty much non stop gambling and drinking, as it should be. Going solo and probably meeting up with a few friends (bronco I will come meet you there my brother!) and hoping to meet many more so give me a holler!


    This will be semi-live (possibly live Friday) so I will certainly do my best. I'll be 29 next month so this could also be an "early" birthday present lol. Let the nefarious activities commence!

    :)

    The Jubilee rooms at Ballys are my new faves.......very nice! The hallways are looooong, you may want to request one near the elevator. The floor to ceiling windows are fabulous!
    Have a fantastic trip!

    You were wise to stick with Jubilee at Ballys. I stayed 2 nights in a red room at Paris in December and it was honestly worn to the point of being what I would call a dump. Have a great trip.

    Good luck!

    Seeing 0245 had me thrown off for a sec thinking it was a 2:45am flight and I'm thinking I didn't know airlines flew at that time!

    So here's what I remember. I met up with Midwest Lady, awesome person btw great convo even though I had to run back to the blackjack table to save my spot! Ended up playing I think until around 12 based on a TITO of 7 bucks I evidently brought back with me.

    My initial buy in was 400 which lasted for a few hours, however, my subsequent rebuys lasted probably 20 minutes tops. Couldn't get on a run so I started betting what few blacks I had. Rookie mistake. I ended up getting absolutely trashed, however, I somehow feel great right now while staring out my Ballys room lol


    Lost probably 1000 or a bit more on blackjack, what a fickle whore that game is. Today for the first time I REALLY try slots lol.


    Going to mess around for a bit either a cup of coffee
