    My Trip Report

    Good morning everyone! Time to start another trip report.

    Here's the plan:
    • 3 nights at Bellagio in a Salone Suite with Fountain View
    • $200 FP
    • $300 F&B - although my host usually picks up everything and I have over $2,000 of Express Comps that never seem to get used
    • Limo pickup
    4th night:
    • Cosmo - hoping for upgrade to wraparound, but will be fine with fountain view, as it's only me in the room
    • Plan to just drag my luggage from Bellagio to Cosmo, it's not far
    • $175 FP
    • ? F&B - last time I was at Cosmo, not even staying there, just playing in HL room, and the host gave me a $100 comp based on play, so hope to work something out similar this time
    11/27 - meetup with friend from JWE (Joker's Wild Gambling Emporium) and treat him to lunch and dinner or just lunch or just dinner - plans still TBD
    11/28 - VMB meetup at 5pm at Chandelier bar in Cosmo And try the Verbena for the 1st time!

    Gambling:
    • Lots and lots of slotting
    • Lots and lots of JACKPOTS!
    • Have a WINNING trip!
    Sleep/Awake Time:
    • No drinking on the flight (for 1st time EVER!) so I can stay up past midnight, preferably til at least 2am the first night in Vegas
    • Try to make it to 2am for at least 1 more night in Vegas
    • Don't go to bed before midnight any of the 4 nights! (last trip I went to bed 10:30pm, 11pm and 12:45am :(
    Food Plans - who knows where I'll make it to or not!
    • Lago - when I get into Bellagio on Thanksgiving
    • Petrossian Bar - love the mojitos!
    • Bellagio Café for breakfast - if I'm too hungover, then it's room service
    • Julian Serrano - either lunch or dinner
    • Sage - tasting menu or maybe China Poblano tasting menu
    • Olives for lunch
    • Bar Masa if I'm feeling like sushi
    • Lemongrass if I'm feeling Thai, not sushi!
    • The Henry for breakfast
    • Secret Pizza
    • Room service for breakfast
    Other Plans
    Mirage - Secret Garden - would love to see baby tigers
    L'Core Mandalay for fake eyelashes - anyone know anywhere close to Bellagio where they will put on lashes for you??

    Flight leaves 2pm tomorrow EST
    Arrive in Vegas 4:55pm

    Cheers!

    Have a great trip! Remember when going to see the baby tigers that they're only there from 12 to 4 normally. I was on a mission last year to see the baby lions and almost missed out (arrived at mirage at 3:45)!

    Not unless I drop 10 years! (I wish!). It's from an old nickname. Have a great trip. Maybe our slotting ways will cross some time in Vegas. It would be fun to meet up for a cocktail.

    Thanks, Jordan. I also want to try some Jordan this trip!

    Thanks for the tip klevegas. I'll have to make sure if I'm on a mission to make it to the Secret Garden that I get there by 3pm at the latest.

    Elf, definitely hope we cross paths for slotting/drinks some day. :beer:

    Sorry, breanna! Looks like I'll be missing you by a bit over a week. Hope our trips align at some point and we can meet. :)

    VegasIs4Me, safe travels to you, too! I'm gonna bump up the meet thread to see if there's any more interest. See you then at Cosmo!

    mansam, I'll be sure to take lots of pics of my wins$$$. I play all kinds of slots. I get much better play for my $ in Vegas than at my local Indian casino (Foxwoods). I start out on penny machines, and like to try new ones I've never played before. I also like the Gold Pays machines and Asian themed machines - I play these up to $8.80 a spin. Also, any old Monopoly, Wizard of Oz or Lord of the Rings game is fun when you hit the bonuses, Buffalo and Wicked Winnings, too! I'm typically a HL slot player, but I try to not play in HL until I'm up a bit. I really like Double Top Dollar and Wheel of Fortune in $5, $10 or $25 denoms. I like playing $1 games at $10 or $20 a spin like Mustang Money and Thunder Cash. I sometimes have luck playing VP, and I'll primarily play $1 VP or $5 VP up to $50 a spin - usually DDB or Bonus Poker. I sometimes try STP or Ultimate X, but those tend to be money suckers and I've never hit a jackpot on them. :( I also like playing Cleo II, Davinci Diamonds and Enchanted Unicorn at $15 - $20 a spin. This trip, I want to play more HL ($1, $5, $10, $25) games that I've never played. It seems that I usually have some decent hits (not jackpots necessarily) when I play a machine for the 1st time.
