Hey VMB -- Finally at the Oakland Airport waiting for my Southwest flight to Vegas. Ladybrick and I are meeting up with some friends from the great state of Ohio and spending a few days relaxing at the Mirage. Tonight's tentative Agenda: Stratosphere Happy Hour Dinner at Portofino Gaming at Mirage and other mid strip casinos Thanks to everyone for sharing their Trip Reports over the past few months. It has helped me deal with the anticipation of rolling them bones and hitting my first Royal. BART from the East Bay to Coliseum was quick and painless. Started off the trip with good luck by running into an old friend from college at the airport. Go Cardinal! We just boarded the plane. Gate 31. Will update when we touch down.
