    Hello Fellow Degenerates,

    I just stumbled across this message board today and I think I found my people. Reading through the board, reading trip reports, and generally feeling like I found a group of people who understand me. I was compelled to sign up and write this (something I wouldn't normally ever do)

    Anyhow, I am getting ready for a trip this weekend as I planned a bachelor party for a close friend from college. 3 of us arrive on Thursday night staying at the Venetian, and then the rest of the crew arrives on Friday all staying through Monday (12 in total). Friday we check into our suite at the TI with a few connected rooms and a few more scattered around the property. I am really excited, although as the only "degenerate" of the group, I will probably be pulling a Houdini most days to go to my happy place. I play dice, BJ, 3CP, slots, and i've been known to pick a keno number or two. Early 30's and have been visiting several times a year for both work and pleasure for the past 6 or 8 years. I'll be obligated to do group things this weekend, and truth be told I'm excited to see some of my friends from college, but it's Vegas, and I can't walk by a keno machine in a bar without tossing a $20 spot at it let alone 4 nights in heaven on earth. So while some of the guys might gamble here and there, I will find my exits throughout the day and get as many hours in as possible. I also have a late flight out Monday so Ill have all day to myself.

    Anyway, excited to keep reading and I am toying with the idea of doing a trip report. Thanks to everyone who has posted the awesome stuff on this board. If anyone needs a gambling partner for Monday 10/10 let me know, I'd love the company.

    Welcome to the the board---the place where degeneracy, OCD behavior (just read up on our obsessing on ADT and in-and-out burger), and a love of all things excessive and decadent are par for the course.

    VMB...where Vegas isn't a badword...it's a lifestyle!

    And, you may not have even scratched the surface regarding some classic degeneracy. Some of the VMB "heavy hitters" have been quiet for a while.

    The first TR I read was from a guy named Packer and Mr and Mrs.BJ. I just kept thinking, "these are my people". Great write ups. Most everyone on this board seems really cool and just down to have a good time. Most MB's are people constantly complaining. This seems like a real community of like minded people (all degenerates none the less)

    Thanks! I like the 20 card game! All 6,7,9 and one 10 spot all overlapping over 16 numbers. Go big or go home!
