    My Trip Report

    No way I can keep up with Packer, Nate, or Bronco but figured I should start my own trip report for this week.

    Things my wife and I have planned this week include:
    Golf
    Pool
    Poker
    Shows (50 shades parody and Zumanity)
    Gamble

    Will keep an eye out for fellow VMBers and I think Rider is at MGM too so hope to meet up with him if possible.

    Flew out of BWI and checked into MGM and now ready to go......look for more pictures than words as the other reports going on have some heavy hitters.

    SLS is a ghost town! Not sure how long they can sustain this??
    At 800 degrees pizza which is good, not a bad value either for Vegas

    I remember thinking the same thing when I visited there on a Sunday night back in January. Nobody was playing there. I see bankruptcy in their future

    It wouldn't shock me. It looked okay for 9pm on a friday in April, but I'm sure every other casino on the strip was even busier.

    The Foxtail pool club was somewhat busy, as I was told that Connor Macgregor was there but patrons on the casino floor and restaurants were out numbered by the staff. Cool place but I just don't see it surviving much longer

    Good luck! I'm curious what you think of the 50 shades parody, we are coming out next week and I thought about adding it to our plans.

    Been up almost 24 hours now and running out of steam. Playing in the late night poker tourney at MGM to relax before I call it a night.

    Back up and refreshed for another fun day.
    Had grand plans to make the nightly deep stack poker tournament at the Rio during the WSOP but just ran out of energy and crashed after busting the MGM poker tournament

    Taking the monorail to center strip for a good walk and some food.
