We are wheels up in less than 24 hours, and I'm going to do my best to provide at least a daily update with pictures on my birthday trip to Vegas - this will be my 21st trip and first ever trip report. The Plan: My wife Rebecca and I fly out on Southwest and are meeting my daughter Sarah and her friend Michelle who arrive at nearly the same time. We are staying at the Mirage (and hoping for a birthday / $20 trick upgrade from our standard King to a Tower King). We have tickets to Uncork'd Grand Tasting on Friday night and Bellagio Block Party on Saturday night. Sunday night we are seeing Absinthe. We also are indulging all of our inner foodies and have lunch reservations on Friday at Mesa Grill and dinner Sunday at Table 10. I expect plenty of pool and strip walking time. Gambling budget is $600 a day which I plan on splitting between .25/1.00 DDB Video Poker and Black Jack. If I'm up, I'll likely be at the craps table with the winnings. I'm hoping for plenty of pictures and we'll see how well I can stick to the plan. Vegas - here we come !!
