    My Trip Report

    Here we go, I didn't take notes so this is all from memory. Enjoy...

    This trip was set up a couple of months ago for a bachelor party. As a matter of fact I was in Vegas when I recieved the text, "my bachelor party is gonna be in Vegas, you in"? The bachelor is my brothers brother in law (got that?), any excuse to go to Vegas is good by me. Made the arrangements by bribing the wife with winnings from the last trip.

    Took an 8:50pm flight out of ohare on United, It turned out one of the guys from the bachelor party (who I didn't know) was on my flight and we were the last two to arrive.

    I was renting a car for this trip but wasn't picking it up until Friday morning, I didn't want to pay the extra money for four hours that they would have charged an extra day for.
    The cab line was long so we went by the limo section and said we wanted one. Paid $60 and up pulls a Suburban. I was thinking the whole time, "this aint a fuckin limo" but I worked all day and it was 1am central time, real tired so I didn't say anything.
    Limo company - 1
    Tuna - 0

    Got to the Venetian and there was a long line, only 1 person in the invited guest line so I went there. Quick, easy check in. I was staying on a 4 night comp offer, they didn't have any smoking rooms left at the V so they sent me over to the P. There's not a very big difference in the rooms at V and P but i prefer the stlye of P. Had a view of LVB and the topless pool so that was money.

    I told myself I wouldn't gamble the first night because A) I never win anything the first night and B) I wanted extra money for football bets on Sunday. So, I went downstairs and dropped five hundred on a BJ table.

    Woke up Friday morning around 7, got a coffee and went to pick up the car, went smooth over at Hertz. Went back to the P to a BJ table. I bought in for a thousand and went back and forth for several hours, I ended up leaving down $100. I was getting hungry so I went to In and Out, the place was packed. I asked some random strangers if I could sit at their table, at first they looked at me crazy but then said it was no problem. It was ok, nothing spectacular. Decided to go Downtown for awhile. Parked at 4 queens and walked to golden nugget to gamble. Bought in for a thousand and played a hundred a hand, after about 3 hours a man gave me his card and asked me where I was staying. I told him I was at the P and he asked if I wanted to stay there. He asked the question like he already knew the answer so when I said no it wasn't a big shock. Played there for about a half hour more and got a text from my host asking where I was, told him I was leaving now and figured a place for us to meet up.*

    We met up at casino credit in P, I slipped him $150 for some things he helped me out on (i had a 2-4 comped offer but some of the nights weren't eligible or some shit. Anyway, he got it all straightened out for me). We walked around for awhile shootin the shit. He asked me if I wanted a bottle sent up to my room, I said yes. He said it would be up there in an hour.

    *I texted the bachelor and told him about the bottle, he brought 6 people with him to my room and they were immediately impressed with the P suite comparing it to the standard room at the Wynn. After about 20 minutes came the knock on the door with a bottle of grey goose and several mixes. We opened that up and started drinking, the guys were impressed with the free room and free bottle that they paid over $500 for at a club the night before. After awhile one of the guys asked me if this was a drug free room, I of course told him drugs were welcome in my room anytime. We smoked for what seemed like hours but couldn't have been more than 40 minutes. I was absolutly trashed, I haven't smoked in at least six years and this stuff really hit me. I look over at the desk where they keep the fax machine and see a guy cutting lines. I'm no prude, I've actually done that stuff more times than I could count, but that was at a very different time in my life. I told this guy that I should have been more specific on what drugs are welcome in the room, only misdemeanor drugs, felony drugs are not allowed. He took the news well and apologized, no big deal, just a misunderstanding. At this point we all decide to go downstairs and gamble. Friends, when I tell you that the P was giving money away, that is no lie. I have never experienced a streak like this in my life. I would buy in for $500, all green, bet $100 a hand and asked to be paid in black. Once I doubled my money I would play out whatever green was left and cash in. I'd go visit the guys at roullette for awhile and then find another table to hit and run. By the end of the night I was up $4,700 off of a $500 buy in. Said goodbye to the guys and headed to bed.*
    (at some point in there I ate at Dos Cominos, had the $13 guac i heard so much about and two orders of pork tacos. The tacos are small and the guac had too much lime for me but not bad)

    *Saturday morning I woke up a winner, i grabbed breakfast at grand lux. Went to the Louis V at the forums to get my wife the wallet and checkbook to match the purse from last trip (i was setting up my march 2011 trip). Walked around for awhile feeling pretty good about life until I got that text from the bachelor, "topless pool at wynn, meet us". I drive over to Wynn and valet. Got on the elevator across from the buffet and met up with the bachelor so he could walk me in. The pool wasn't very crowded and only a few women were topless, all of which already had company. It seemed that none of the women we wanted to see topless were willing to be topless. After about an hour I left, it was just way too fuckin hot for me.

    *Here we are, Saturday afternoon, this is the day that's a blur. I remember bits and pieces so it wasn't a complete blackout. I know I ate at cut, I think it was pretty good, I do remember liking the mac and cheese alot. At some point I was playing BJ, taking shots with some Canadiens (spelling?). Before all the craziness I decided it would be a good idea to tip my host an additional $300. He's off on Sunday and Monday so it was the last day I would see him before I left. I remembered reading on this board that you're suppose to give them something at the end of your stay, especially if you won. Anyway, Saturday was just a lot of drinking, a lot of gambling and a strip club. I don't remember where I went so I can't give it a proper review.
    *Sunday, I woke up at about 10am, this is the latest I've ever slept in Vegas, but to be fair I could have gotten in at 8am*as I have no idea what time I got back to the room. I'm a mess this morning, my head is pounding, I feel like shit, the room is a mess and there's clothes in my room I don't recognize. I went to the safe...no money, went through my pockets...no money. I either lost it all or someone stole it, none the less, it was all gone. I go in my wallet and there's no money BUT there is a sports bet ticket I must have placed from the night before. I unfold it and read the wager, $1000 on the Bears against the Cowboys! Wtf...i get dressed, run down to the sports book and ask if there's any way I can cash the ticket in as I DO NOT want this bet. It was 10:20*game already started, can't do anything for me. I go up to my room to watch the game. As you already know, the bears win that game and upset the cowboys. i'm back! Go downstairs and collect my money! I go straight to a BJ table and order a Corona, no more hard liquor for me. I'm playing for about an hour and some guy sits down next to me with an Urlacher jersey, he says, "tuna"! *I look at him a little confused, he doesn't look familiar at all. I tell him, sorry man, do I know you? He says, "man you were fucked up last night, you kept calling me a nonbeliever because I refused to put a thousand on the bears". We laughed that off for awhile and talked about the game. I asked him a few questions about the night before, what time he saw me, where I went, etc...he said at about 2am i was so fucked up I was asking people if I could buy the jewelry they were wearing. That a guy that worked at the V took me to get some coffee and said he was going to walk me to my room.*
    A little while later I got a text from my host asking me how I was doing, he also told me it was him that brought me to my room but I kept telling him there's no fuckin way I was calling it quits for the night.

    I ended up going home Monday morning, 6am flight +$6,500.
    Final rating 18 hours @ $87 a hand. Got a few pics to come...

    The view from my room at the P, the topless pool is just to the right, I thought it would be bad form to take pics of it

    Pretty funny trip report! Did you ask your host if he knew what happened to all your money? That looks like a standard room/suite at Palazzo to me.

    Nah man, waking up like that was embarassing to me, couldn't bring myself to ask him many questions. You're right, that is a standard luxury suite at P.

    Awesome Bears Bet!!

    I believe you have found the secret to betting. Black out inebriated, pockets full of cash, and the Bears playing football.

    Oh my!! Having to ask total strangers what you did the previous night, been there, done that. I sure hope I don't do it again.
