Day 1 Sunday Departed NY JFK at 7:30 on time Sunday morning. Flight was crowded and I originally had the middle seat. The aisle was a couple and they wanted to sit together so they asked if I would switch seat with his wife. Gladly as I now had an aisle seat. Woo-hoo. Landed on time at 10:30. Flight was a breeze. Flew Delta round trip and although I havenâ€™t used them before, it was a good experience for me all the way through. Cab driver nice took short cut and went right to MGM that led to a nice tip for the guy. I was at the hotel in 15 minutes. Check in was quick, I checked my bag with valet thinking my room would not be ready but it turned out it was. Left the bag thinking I will pick it up later. Had a monster headache. Probably because I was hungry. And it was Hot. Real hot. 110* hot. I wound up just going to the food court and grabbing McDonalds for a quick meal. Disappointing but I wanted to feel better as fast as I could. I went back to the room to relax for a bit. After quick walk around MGM I was going to go rest at the pool. But it was real hot and I wasnâ€™t primed up for a Wet Republic type afternoon. I decide to go play some blackjack after a quick nap. I wound up knocking down too many Coronaâ€™s during my BJ session. The problem with a solo trip is there is nothing to pull you away from the tables. Also you go in expecting a certain outcome, read: winning. Played up and down and then down some more and then lost my budgeted $500. So being over served, I pull out another $400 and according to the dealer who I saw the next day I got bludgeoned. I went up to my room with the intention of showering and going out for dinner. That turned into room service and passing out to the TV. I must have passed out right away because I woke up to pounding on my door so I was psyched room service was finally here. The waiter proceeds to tell me he has been here twice already and they called the room once which I didnâ€™t answer. Wow I am drunk! I felt so bad I gave him a $20 tip which seemed to make him feel better. I ate and went back to sleep resigned to the fact I am drunk, solo and probably looking for trouble if I start drinking or gambling again. Day 2 Monday I woke up early (8:00) being on east coast time. After a hot shower and a shave, I got dressed and walked up to Planet Hollywood for the buffet. At 9:30 it was already 95 degrees. I was sat after waiting on a very short line and had a very good breakfast. Egg white omelet with peppers mushrooms and onions. Corned Beef Hash and hash brown potatoes rounded out my meal. Two very large Cranberry juices and I was feeling much better. Went back and loaded up on some fresh fruit. I was going to back for more but I decided to eat a normal meal. I walked around some more stopping in various hotels up the strip. I had a weird vibe and didnâ€™t get that feeling to stop and gamble anywhere. I figured I am not going to force it I will just head back and go to the pool for a while. By the time I made it back to MGM it was VERY hot, almost 100 and it was before noon. I stopped at Walgreens along the way for a couple bottles of h20 and Gatorade. I dropped that off in my room and came back down. Watched some baseball and made my way back over to BJ where I doubled my $200. I walked around the casino thinking I will hold onto this money for a while before I lose it back. Ran into the BJ dealer from the night before who clued me in on my condition from Sunday night. Played a little craps where nothing got going. Money in money out no gains no loss. And no drinks. So I realized some hair of the dog may help me loosen up. Walked around by NYNY and other hotels around MGM. Walked by the pool and sat out there for about 10 minutes when I gave up because it was 115 degrees. Went back showered and went downstairs. I really wanted some sushi but didnâ€™t feel like leaving the southern part of the strip. Went to Grand Wok and Sushi bar and really enjoyed the rolls I had. Red dragon roll, spicy California plus some garlic tuna sashimi. Had great service at the sushi bar. Waitress was very helpful and even talked to me about my trip. Obviously she could see I was solo and made me much more comfortable while I was waiting for my food. I went back out seeing if I could soften the blow from the night before. I made $200 back so I thought if I can make another $200 I will write off the other losses and take that money and head out for drinks and socializing. Make some friends. Well this was a long BJ session. I never made money and just slowly bled out my money. So I started to press my bets some and that just sped up the decline. Never one big hand just busts and pushes over the course of a few hours. I finally realized that this was going to be a losing session as well so I might as well give up. I look at my watch and see itâ€™s already 1 am!! Knowing I am getting up for my flight by 7 or 8 I starting thinking how much of a waste this trip turned out to be. Typically I have fun anywhere, make friends, win some money and just blow off some steam. That never happened on this trip. I tried to make too much happen starting with gambling. Day 3 Airport and flight home with no events. Landed early and was home vefy quickly with little rush hour traffic. Typically you donâ€™t have a bad time in Vegas but my mistake was I knew I wanted to win some money and party as fast as I made it. Neither happened and without friends there to walk away from the tables and go somewhere else I shouldnâ€™t be surprised by the results. I wound up staying mainly on the MGM property. All in all it was a very strange trip even for me. I have been to Vegas many times and even solo before but I never got into a party atmosphere this time. I donâ€™t know if it was me, small bankroll, being there Sunday through Tuesday or what but I left Vegas disappointed for the first time. I wonâ€™t say I wont be back but I know it will be a while. Apologies it wasnâ€™t a better trip report. Maybe next time.
