    My Trip Report

    Vegas has been on the back-burner for the past year. The Vegas "drought" ends, in less than 2 days!!! Going to take in, what the rest of you have been enjoying. I'm definitely getting antsy, as the day approaches.

    Some Mlife experiences like the Shark reef, The Secret garden and the fountains are on the "to do" list. We have never been, to any of them.

    Dining consists of Tender at Luxor and Andres at MC. We love the food at both restaurants. There will be 2 more restaurants on the list (winging it or we will consider board suggestions). That's the one thing that we really enjoy about Vegas....the variety. There will also be, the buffet at MB. Flying screws up our appetites, so we always do the buffet the first night in. It's fresh and has a nice variety of foods to choose from. Breakfast is usually anywhere....tough to screw up breakfast.

    The morning ritual will consist of the pool for a few hours each day. We have had a lousy summer up here....it's been comfortable but not summer. This time there is the option of the Delano pool. Makes the MB resort even better when it comes to pool life.

    Gambling....of course. This time there will be a different approach. Being the degenerate that I am...I'm going with superstition. Almost a Costanza approach...opposite of what I feel is right. I'm hoping to avoid the ATM and limiting the cash that we are bringing in...I hope it works....LOL. The goal of the trip is to get 200k in tier credits in 5 days. It's doable but we aren't going to chase. With the "go with the flow" attitude, it will probably be extremely hard to do but I don't care.

    "The Strip" at night, is something that we haven't done. We are even going to hang out on the north end (again, we haven't done that either).

    That's about all the planning that we intend to do. The rest is how we are feeling at the moment. The board has given me plenty of great advice....I plan to use it. We are going to enjoy the "other" things in Vegas. Thanks VMB!!!

    The last and probably most important thing is tapatalk. I don't know how to use it....I will figure it out. There should be plenty of things to post. Sorry it won't be the PT version...I will leave that to him...LOL.

    The fun starts on Thursday!!!!

    Good luck Flowers!!!!! Win lots of money.

    Your plans sounds great.. My granddaughter and her friend are leaving with me this Friday at 7:50 pm. Staying downtown at the Four Queens. It's their first time. Can't wait to show them around.

    Get the pics figured out on Tapatalk. That is the best part when you go back and read these from years past, it really brings back the feeling from a great trip.

    Can't wait to hear more and good luck!

    I guess since retiring I don't pay enough attention to what the weekend weather is like; I'm west of you and it has been a fabulous summer weather-wise.....a tad on the hot side until this week but I never complain about heat when I remember what January is like.

    Have a fantastic, winning trip!

    I suggest you try Citizens at MB for breakfast and/or for their prime rib dinner. The prime rib is really amazing and not terribly expensive. Have a great trip!

    One more thing - skip Raffles at MB. It has been horrible the last two times I've eaten there.

    Thanks for the advice Elf70. Citizens is our go-to when "you just don't know" feeling.

    Thanks for the well wishes!!!
