    My Trip Report

    So this is my 1st Vegas trip report and my 1st attempt at a semi-live report, so please be kind.

    Here's my tentative agenda for this trip:
    •Staying at Aria for the 1st time
    •Gym time including a couple of classes (weights and TRX) and spa pass
    •Meeting Kari to see Pat Benatar!!!
    •Trying to increase my confidence with table games, and try at least 1 new game. I've been "studying" every night for the last couple of weeks, and look forward to a little coaching from Packer.
    •Go 4 days without anyone assuming I'm a hooker, MILF or a Cougar
    •Do some shopping
    •Would love to get my 1st Vegas handpay
    •Plan to go for 1 nice dinner
    •Just generally relax, get a break from work and HAVE FUN
    •hopefully meet some new VMBers.
    •Try Vesper martini at Vesper bar at Cosmo
    •Place some bets on the MN Wild (Currently 1-0 in the series against the Blues) GO WILD!!

    I fly out tonight at 9:30 MSP time, and land in LAS at around 11 PM.

    Every trip to Vegas starts with a blowout.[​IMG]

    I had to come back to the office as one of the production servers went down and the DBA is out today. I still need to eat lunch but everything is back to normal so I should be out of here on time. Woohoo!

    Best of luck Katmu. You will do great at the tables, how can you go wrong with a seasoned vet like Packer?

    Another cocktail that's not on the menu at Cosmo is the Verbana cocktail at the chandelier bar. Crazy experience following eating the flower! Good luck out there!!

    I'm looking forward to it, even though they need to move my class tomorrow to noon so I'll miss the start of the Wild game.

    Thanks. I'm hoping my 2015 good luck continues in Vegas. And with Packer on my side, how can I lose?

    It's all fixed. It just might have been nice if he had told me he made some changes last night before he left.

    Thanks, I'm looking forward to some solo time.

    There's a VMB meetup Monday at 5:30 at 3535 bar at Linq if you want to stop by.

    Thanks.

    I watched Vegas Vacation last night while I was packing to get warmed up. Maybe I should try War as a table game. lol.

    Yes, I'm a mom. My boys are 22 and 23.

    Can I ask you to clarify what you mean by intending to pull off the MILF thing?

    I'm not into youthful men or youthful scotch for that matter.:wink

    No 20-somethings for me. I prefer men closer to my age.
