Sitting here at the airport waiting to board the Southwest plane to Vegas. Staying at the Flamingo this trip - I've never stayed there before (actually I've never stayed at any CET property before). But this weekend was expensive and blacked out for comps so I booked a package through Southwest Vacations. Some of you may remember my last (admittedly dull) trip report: http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?118582-NYNY-live-3-28-4-1 I was having back problems and there was heavy Percocet usage. Well, my back is still really screwed up. Since that trip I've had two MRIs and it is a pretty bad herniated disc. I'll be having spine surgery June 11 to cut it out and relieve the pressure/pain. But I wasn't gonna let that cancel a Vegas trip!!!! So once again I had my doctor stock me up with Percocet and steroids so I should be good to go for the next four days. I might try the $20 trick when I check in at the Flamingo. Not sure yet.
