    My Trip Report

    Since March, my trips reports have mostly consisted of mini reviews of the highlights of trips, and then last month I wrote a slightly longer piece about my sisters and I staying at the Wynn. Well, the annual birthday trip is upon me and I realized I had not written a lengthy Live TR since my back to back Tunica and Mandalay Bay reports from this past March. And since this trip is a solo, I thought it might provide a good opportunity to write a lengthy Live report.

    But that's only if people want to read it. :wave: Personally, I always enjoy reading the Live TRs more than the recaps because it makes me feel like I am there. But having written a couple Live TRs in the past, I know they take commitment to sit down once or twice a day and tell everyone what is happening. I'm only going to do that if there is some interest from the Board in reading it.

    Sooooooo, this TR will be coming to you live from a Cosmo wraparound terrace suite and certain to involve a lot of craps, baccarat, blackjack, and the tearing up of losing sports tickets. If you like gambling heavy reports, this is probably the TR for you! But I will also provide some info on Cosmo restaurants, spa, shopping, and people watching. Also, a couple friends may make cameo appearances. Its a solo trip, but a couple friends are likely to be passing through Vegas at the same time and the tentative plan is to meet up.

    Respond and let me know if there is interest in reading more of this report. If there is, I will keep writing, starting with the trip pregame tomorrow and will promise to write something at least once a day while there, hopefully more (and I will try and get my phone to work so I can post some pictures; I stink at that). :popcorn If there's not much interest in all that, this thread will soon disappear, lol :snore:

    On a serious note I will be at the Cosmo on Saturday night playing at the Stage and sports bar, BJ, craps and bacc tables. I will look for you being followed by Ashley Judd.

    lol, I met her once years ago. Real sweet lady.

    But in vegas, I am more likely to be followed around by angry gamblers that think my don't pass bets brought them bad luck. :Þ

    Speaking of which, anyone who is around Cosmo this weekend, if you want to grab a drink or gamble, you can find me (the short guy) betting the don't at the craps table or pounding my fists on the table in either the high limit or talon room. Come on by!

    You're welcome to join in.

    But not sure you want to play craps with me. Last winter, Nate invited me to play with him and his friends until I alerted him that I am a dark side player. That ended that!

    I love the talon bar. However, they ran out of that 7 year itch.
    The stock has been depleted.

    As far as craps goes. I don't believe in dark side players bringing bad luck.
    Its just a shitty deal as one of us is going to walk away upset lol
    Not really a bonding activity.
