It’s finally here. The other trip to Vegas I look forward to all year (other one is NCAA Tourney). Baseball playoffs, College Football, & the NFL. I got lucky this year and Nick Swardson is playing the Mirage and it’s his birthday on Friday night and another pal Deepak Sethi is playing Planet Hollywood Saturday night. I get to see to friends perform in Vegas over a weekend. Super cool. I’ve got a few Myvegas rewards to redeem. I have to say MGM, it was a great idea when it started, but with the rewards either being taken off the board or limiting them to one use it’s become a useless venture for me. But I’ll take some free food this weekend to free up the comp line for other stuff. Special thanks to FirstKill who got me to join M Resort players club. I have a tiny amount of free play to redeem and they’re going to buy me a buffet this weekend. There is also a slot tourney I can participate in and I get all this and don’t even have to stay there. Brilliant. So I’ve got the bankroll in my pocket and will be doing my normal early morning drive across the desert. NYNY is so booked all the time that my host suggested I book Wed night as well, so when I arrive before 10 am I can hit my room right away instead of having to wait until after 2 for them to clean the rooms. This will generate an extra day vs my trip average, but I thought I’d try it once and see how it goes. I doubt it will affect my offers too much, but I guess we’ll see. Hey, I just need a couple hand pays and some sporting luck and it won’t be a problem. So a few beers at the Bean tonight watching the Cubs smash up the Las Piratas and then an early morning drive followed by hand pays and chip porn. Easy Peasy!!
