Long time lurker, time to give back. Me: 35, married with kids, hooked on Vegas since about 15 minutes into my first trip. This will be my 7th trip to Vegas, first without my wife. She jokingly, well mostly jokingly, made me promise no prostitutes since she won't be there to keep me in line. I use to go to Vegas primarily to party but the gambling has increasingly gotten my attention over the years. Cast: Me. M; been to Vegas with him twice before, gets after it just like I do, lots of gambling and booze and little sleep. T; He hasn't been to Vegas in years but I know him well enough to know he will fit in just fine. Location: Luxor. Never stayed there but I have been assured by like minded people that this place is positively a shit hole.....but as I'm a low roller and it is a fight weekend, this is what I could get for free. No concern over the room quality as I plan to be there for about 10 hours over 3 days. I did see they have full pay VP at there high limit bar for dollars, that is a nice benefit. Gambling: VP, lots of it at the bar tops, big thanks to Tring for his bar top primer. Also a mixture of BJ, Let it Ride, and I'm going to get back to throwing dice on this trip. Might try roulette at some point, never played it before. To do list: - Hit my first royal and hand pay all at once. - Make my way to the TAG bar in the Linq to order up some tasty beers. - Stop by TI for a few hours so I can start generating offers from them again. - Watch the sunrise night 1 - Walk the strip and gamble all up and down, one of my favorite Vegas activities - Hit Sapphire one night, T has never been to a strip club, Vegas is the place to do it. - Watch Cotto/Canelo. Lots of different watch parties we will consider, if the gambling is going well I might try to grab a scalp late. Loving Cotto +230. - Come home a winner. Last two trips I have rallied late to come home even. No complaints about that but I haven't had a winning trip in a while. Leaving 9PM tonight on Allegiant out of Cincinnati. I'll try to keep up regularly but I'm not a glued to the phone kind of guy so we we'll see how this goes. Should be plenty of time to update here and there while at the VP bar.
