    My Trip Report

    This is my 8th Christmas spent in Vegas and after the first two my mom got mad at me for taking off so I've taken her on the last 6.

    Drunk already so here's some pics so far.

    Lunch at China poblano.

    "Drunk" is always the first item on the 'to do' list! Good luck!

    After lunch went to chandelier bar. Cosmo was dead. Didn't hit anything. Did get drinks with no issue including a fancy cocktail and peach ciroc.

    Training session at clique

    Clique wasn't open but I think I saw both there

    After Cosmo we hit the Mandarin bar for the first time of the trip

    I think I may have spoiled my mom too much. Our flight was early so they didn't have the welcome amenities sent up. They were there by the time we got back from Cosmo. Also they had my shoes shined and back by then.

    Dinner at Bardot was great. Bone marrow wasn't quite as good as botero. Lobster Thermidor was amazing though.

    Gam led after dinner. Had a nice run at PGP but tried to get to a round number and ended up down for the session.

    Sat at the new vp bar that replaced deuce. No problem getting peach ciroc. Lost some there.

    Played some black jack and having to dip into the nights emergency reserve, I rebounded to lose less then a bet.

    Nice hit! But the bartop progressives at Cosmo are 7/5 DDB now??? Ugh. If the non-progressive games are still 8/5 DDB ( looks like it from your Chandelier drink pic), I'd play those. $1092 royal is meh.

    Nice porn pics as always! Look forward to reading more!
