    My Trip Report

    In about 24 hours the BF and I will be leaving for Vegas and will be staying at the Aria for three nights of drinking, wandering, eating, and gambling… oh, and Mariah Carey. This is my eighth trip to Vegas and third trip this year!

    Loose plans for the trip so far:
    - Eating, drinking, gambling, duh
    - Pool time
    - Mariah Carey on Sunday
    - Meet some fellow VMB'ers, will be wearing my wristband
    - Expanding the chip collection
    - Spend a day downtown
    - Maybe finally exploring some off strip properties like Ellis Island and Hooters, etc
    - Using some ACG coupons and Freeplay at Aria and Tropicana
    - Whatever else Vegas brings our way

    My gambling bank roll is about half of what I usually have, due to some recent expenses, so lots more low-rolling it this time. But I do have some coupons and $185 worth of freeplay around town, so maybe I can turn that into some cash and stretch my bank roll… I have a couple friends who regularly get jackpots at the local casino, so I made sure to rub both of them for good luck….

    As always I will attempt to post here live as often as the tapatalk and wifi allows. Hope you’ll join me!

    Oops, then I lost it all on Top Dollar, then won it back on double diamond, then lost it all back on boner deluxe super times pay. Took forever to get a multiplier!

    Down $105 for the trip.

    I'm a Belvedere rocks with a twist person myself. Now combine those straights and flushes together in one hand with a ten-low!
