    My Trip Report

    In about 24 hours I will be arriving for three nights in the promised land! This will be my 10th trip to Vegas and first trip for the year! This was originally supposed to be a solo trip, but out of the blue four friends from San Francisco were able to book a trip to join me. I will be staying two nights at Mirage, one comp night and one ridiculously cheap night with some freeplay and resort credit, then one night downtown at the El Cortez Cabana Suites. Never stayed downtown before, only made day trips, so that's a first.

    As per usual I will be posting here live as much as possible with pics, gambling reports, food porn, and ramblings.

    Also I'm going to attempt to live tweet the highlights of my trip. If you are inclined to use the Twitters please follow me: @TwoWayHardEight

    Loose plans for the trip so far:
    - VZZZT Vegas podcasting show on Saturday
    - Video Poker, Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Sports Bets, Poker, and maybe some Sluts
    - Drinking
    - Pool time if the weather holds
    - More drinking
    - Hopefully a nice dinner or two
    - Neon Museum during the day and La Reve at night on Friday
    - Low-rolling downtown
    - ACG coupons and whatever other deals I can scrounge up
    - Maybe finally running into another VMB'er, will be wearing my wristband
    - Expanding my chip collection
    - Whatever else Vegas brings our way

    Got about half my usual bankroll this time, so will be trying to make it stretch as much as possible, will have to be a bit more disciplined. But luckily the flight was paid with miles and got one night comped and some good room deals. It's been five months since I've been to Vegas, so I'm super excited.

    I hope you’ll follow along with me!

    Used Lyft from airport, driver was super nice and cost about $16.50.

    Checked into Mirage, not a bad view! Now time to freshen up and go do some freeplay!

    They wouldn't comp it for me when I asked in August at the Chandelier bar before 6pm. Probably saw my face had "drink scammer" all over it. Told him I didn't want to pay $16 (lol) for it. Maybe boxofbirds got luckier.

    Good luck boxofbirds!

    Yup, Verbena was comped. I also started a trend at the bar! 3 or 4 others ordered one after seeing mine.
