    My Trip Report

    Hey VMBers! I plan to do a better live pic report this go around I swear! Currently sitting at HOU airport heading to Cosmo on a 2 night comp. This will be my 2nd time at Cosmo. I usually stay at MGM with better offers but couldn't get these dates. But I'll take Cosmo all day. Love the drinks and atmosphere.

    I'm not too active on this board although I check it daily :) so a little info about me, I'm a 35yo married lesbian from Houston. I love all things gambling and frequent the semi-local casinos in Lake Charles, LA. We just got a new Golden Nugget that is my new home and feels almost vegas, almost. I'm mostly a green chip BJ/craps player and love hit n run roulette. I usually slot around for points and in search of a slot atm! But they are hard to find.

    So my last trip was October 2014 and I had a few lessons learned.
    1. I must eat - I didn't eat at all the 1st day except 15 vodka/sodas and almost barfed on the craps table but somehow made it to my room.
    2. Pedialyte is awesome, everything else sucks - I brought a whole box this time.
    3. Room service for breakfast saves a lot of time - I want my coffee as soon as I wake without having to leave the room and eating while getting ready just saved a lot of time for gambling!

    Not a whole lot planned this trip. Will prob hit up STK happy hour this evening and gamble mostly at Cosmo. Tomorrow meeting my cousins at the Linq and want to check out the Linq casino. I hope to get over to Whiskey Down at some point I love that place and that's about it.

    So without further ado... Let the run good begin!

    If you fly over the Galleria area I will see your plane from my desk wishing I was on it heading to Vegas myself. Though I can't be too greedy, I was there last week. haha.


    Let me know how the craps minimums are this week. Over the super bowl weekend they were crazy high until Tuesday morning. $50 min really puts a cramp in my craps.

    You got me hooked with first note on your last trip. I resemble that remark. Can't wait to read the rest. Good luck.

    I have not once been able to get cocktail service on the floor at Cosmo. The last time I was there a group of drunk Russian dudes were screaming for one and I left because they tried to rope me into their pleas and that's just downright rude. Of course, I usually end up at Cosmo after 2 am for some reason which might have something to do with it.
