    My Trip Report

    Heading to the airport in 60 minutes...

    Flying Southwest Air to Vegas, where I have a 2 bedroom Marquee suite at MGM Grand. We also have two additional executive suites, for a total of 7 people in our party. Six of us a Vegas veterans, but we are bringing one Vegas virgin with is. My host has been generous with up front comps: Marqee Suite & two Cabana days comped, plus $300/day in resort credit. The two additional suites are at casino rate. Cabanas include $600/day in F&B.

    We keep the pre-planning relatively light:
    • Dinner tonight at Lotus of Siam.
    • Cabana reserved for Friday and Saturday
    • I am playing in an invite/comp poker tournament at Mandalay Bay on Saturday. This is a Tiger Jam event, and we will get a photo op with Tiger at the start of the day. 40 players; $150K winner take all (promo chips).
    I hope to post pictures and updates throughout my trip, but I know the success rate on live trip reports is low....

    Looks like the flight is now delayed about 20 minutes - but the plane is here now, so we should be good now.

    Yay for live TRs!! Thanks. Really loving it so far. Good luck and have a great time.

    Technical question: I see you're using Tapatalk. Are you "attaching" the pictures through the app or "inserting image link"? Thanks!
