    Am I the only degen going in December? I was looking at my FF account yesterday and realized I will need to make another trip to hit the next level. So of course I started to look at what weekends I could get to Vegas for a reasonable fare. Well it just so happens the weekend before Christmas was a price that was pretty much something I couldn't pass up. So of course I booked. December 15th - 19th I will be at Aria for the final time of the year. I know a lot of you go out for New Year's but anyone else going out for a little pre-holiday fun?
     
    I need one more trip to up my frequent flier level

    Dec 15-19 for a birthday celebration, but last time for me. December used to be dead time in Vegas. Now with all the Christmas shopping the flights are packed!

    Dec 28-Jan 1 at Cosmo! First 2 nights comp One BR Terrace. The next 2 nights booked a Terrace Suite on points thru Marriott!

    PSA: If any of you guys are Marriott members and are looking to do Cosmo for New Years, the Terrace Suite is the best deal available right now. 130K MR points for 2 nights in a Terrace suite (valued at $2,867.20 after tax/resort fees if you are not getting casino rate). In comparison, a basic City Room costs 90K MR points. Absolutely ridiculous.

    12/20 - 12/23 solo trip.

    Harrah's comped with hopes for upgrade at Diamond check-in.

    This trip, I WILL make it to Gordon Ramsey Steak! Also want to venture to a couple of spots I've never been to: Hard Rock and Sam's Town. And, it's been a couple of years since I've been Downtown. Get ready Uber!

    I normally don't "do" Vegas in December but, my Jayhawks are playing at UNLV so why not take advantage of this opportunity. Free room, free meals, using Delta miles and Southwest cheap one-way fare, Thomas and Mack good ticket price...it's just meant to be.

    Haven't yet decided whether it's Nov 10-13 or Dec 1-3 for HGS. It'll be one of the 2. First have to see how Cruise Ship Gambling goes next week. And the night pre-cruise staying at Seminole Hard Rock Ft Lauderdale. If my bankroll gets out of control, then probably will wait till December.

    December 1st, 2nd and 3rd at Main Street Station, the 4th and 5th at Orleans and the 6th and 7th at Flamingo.

    I had to cancel my last trip for the first time ever so I'll be looking to make up for lost time. I may or may not be traveling solo.

    December 14-18 at the Mirage. Solo trip. I will probably visit Avengers Station next door at TI, and will spend a few evenings downtown. No other plans yet.
