    My Trip Report

    Finally getting the courage up to try a live report. No guarantees, not sure I can keep up with it, but we're gonna give it a go.

    Landing Sun evening with wife, daughter and two of daughter's male friends, but not boyfriends, in tow. Both of my daughter's friends are Vegas virgins. Wife and I are mid-50s, "kids" are early 20s. Suite at Elara Sun-Thurs nights, kids fly home Friday. Wife and I have two nights comped at Venetian Thurs-Sat. Only solid plans are Gordon Ramsey Steak and Raiding the Rock Vault, plus teaching the young ones a bit about scotch and lots of VP for me/slots for the wife. The kids are going to Hakkasan the night before they leave.

    Tapatalk loaded, pic upload tested, 90 hours until touchdown....
