    My Trip Report

    Might try to go LIVE with this one.
    LVH for 3 nights.
    FB betting on Sat/Sun.
    BJ/VP/Craps will be mixed in as well.

    Will see if I can make it happen and go live if anyone is interested.

    Fly out in 4 hours. Can't wait. Clock is ticking slow at work.

    I will be up there this weekend as well, but will be staying at South Point. Use to stay at the LVH a lot when it was the Hilton, but seems like it has gone way down.

    Hit town - SEMA trying to clear out.

    Get to LVH and given two sets of keys in the VIP checkin. I ask why?? Sir - you have two doors to your suite!

    Guess I'm back in the good graces of the LVH! Room is huge - may throw a college football party In the party room tomorrow for the husker game.

    Get to the sports book - some rearranging - not for the better! Lost at DDB VP at the sports bar. Sitting at Battistas right now typing this...

    Saturday -
    Up at 7a and down to the LVH sports book.
    Two big bets of the day were going to be Wisconsin and LSU. One covered and one didn't. Had some luck on the others...small profit.
    Played probably an hour of craps - small loss.
    Played probably two hours of DDB VP. 3 quads, 1 premium. Small profit at the $1 level.
    Had more Budweiser than a guy should. Had deli at sports book, comped. And buffet, comped.
    Pretty relaxed day - bankroll ready for Sunday.

    As I figured --- my live report fell right into the toilet!!! LOL.

    I'll try to wrap things up here --- with a big surprise at the end.

    Flight:
    Southwest direct both ways. Took 2:50 going out....2:20 coming home. Flight was delayed an hour on the way back, but SW alerted me via phone call of this 8 hours in advance. So no worries. We were the last leg for the crew for the night -- so they put the hammer down and cut 30 mins off the flight. Amazing what they can do when they put their minds to it.

    LVH:
    I don't mind the LVH. The elevators still suck, etc... But it is what it is. You really can't complain. The pool is still open. The dining is actually decent. The VP isn't terrible. The sportsbook is great. Resort fee sucks if you can't get it comped off. The coupon book is worthless.
    Did get a suite. Will try to post pics later.

    Food:
    LVH Superbook Deli: Awesome, great value.
    Battista's: I'm in the "love it" category. Many hate on it, but I love it.
    Benihana: I like the experience -- though it's likely overpriced if not comped.
    Hooters: What's to say here?? Get the 3 mile sauce ;)
    In and Out: Gotta have it ;)
    LVH Buffet: For the price, really pretty good selection.

    Gambling:
    Bet college football heavy on Saturday. Just about a wash.
    Hit the SNF game hard. Winner, winner.
    Played low stakes BJ this trip. Down a little.
    Played low stakes Craps this trip. About even.
    Played VP. Was even...until the last day.

    Gambling was weird --- I was content to just putz around on the low limits....had a ton of fun doing so, and never had to "chase". Hope this feeling sticks around, but I know it won't. LOL.


    The highlights?!?!?!??!

    My first ROYAL ever!!! Happened on $.25 Progressive DDB at the Hooter's Bar. Jackpot was $1604. Dealt 4 to the Royal --- turned to my pal and asked what the odds were of getting the Ace????? Guess what --- it hit!!!!!

    What an experience!!!
