    My Trip Report

    Well, not quite live in Las Vegas yet. The boarding passes are printed, the bags are packed, the bank account is drained and we're waiting for our ride to the airport. Plan is to hit the bar at the airport, have a little snack and a brew, then on to vegas for our short one hour and 20 minute flight. A quick cab ride over to NYNY, try to upgrade to a suite, and then find another bar. The last couple of gambling trips have been pretty pathetic, so hopefully the Gambling Gods, in their infinite wisdom, will be smiling down on me. Tomorrow, it's the greatest day of the year, St. Patrick's Day. A day to wear green, hopefully not turn green from too much booze. But hey, if you have to puke, at least you'll be ready for some more party time. Puke and Rally!

    I'll try to update this as I go, but I might be having too much fun to remember. Maybe some other folks at MM will post in this thread as well, who knows. I guess you'll just have to tune back in to find out.

    Slainte!

    Made it past security without issue, but learned that we'll have a little yip dog on the plane with us. So far, he hasn't shut up. It's going to be a long one hour flight. Time to drink.

    Okay this trip is going to get better. It has to! I left the SWA drink coupons at home along with about $30 in chips. UGH!!!!

    Small step back makes for huge steps forward right?

    Beer two. Drowning sorrows for not having drink coupons. Is that ironic?

    Don't sweat the small things, you brought your bank roll right? Relax and enjoy your vacation, the gambling gods will repay you with many times your coupon values.
