    My Trip Report

    Wife and I will be flying out of Seattle Sat Dec 27th on Alaska at noon.
    Rental car through Alamo.
    Checking into The Fremont for 2 nights, have always wanted a trip downtown.
    Hope to make the meet and greet at 7pm on the 27th.

    Monday the 29th we move to Delano for one night and have a panaromic bedroom suite reserved. Had a comped room at MGM booked but won't have a lot of time to gamble there this trip, got a decent deal on Delano in an email so rebooked at Delano. Didn't want to screw up my future MGM offers. Already have 4 nights booked there for spring break for a total of $288.
    Monday night we see Carrot Top . I saw him with my brother in February. Laughed non stop. Found a deal on these tickets a while back for 40% off. 2nd row right in the center. Wife hasn't seen him so I'm looking forward to that. Afterwards we'll head up the The MIX lounge. :beer:

    Tuesday and Wednesday nights we'll be at Treasure Island and will be doing the Hoedown at Gilley's for NYE.
    Want to go see Chadwick Johnson at Suncoast on the 30th. All depends on how I'm feeling about driving LOL

    looking at the weather report is depressing as hell. It's not much warmer than Seattle. :(
    At least it's sunny.
