    My Trip Report

    Hi everyone. I love reading all your trip reports and they inspired my to have a go at it. I'm taking my GF of 3 years to Vegas for her 1st trip which will also include her birthday on the 22nd. Have lots planned for her as well as some gaming time for me. Have roughly a 10k bankroll.
    I hope you enjoy and I hope I can keep up.[​IMG]

    A whole bunch of rum and cokes made the flight from Newark tolerable [​IMG]
    I like the United app it has a lot of good info for the geek in me

    Thank you! So we arrived last night and the whole time I'm doing those updates they wouldn't go. As it turns out folks, you need to take your phone OFF airplane mode for this to work lol
    Thank goodness Olivia (the GF) is tech savvy.
    Anyway we checked in last night. Had a Madison ave room. Tried the $20 trick and got a spa suite. Terrible (or no for that matter) view, but an upgrade is an upgrade

    Had a very yummy breakfast buffet at Chin Chin inside NYNY. Reasonably priced and great food/service!

    Have fun, how's NYNY to stay? Love the casino but never roomed there - as you can see, we rectify that next month!

    Win big, let's enjoy the turnaround!:woohoo:

    I like the room so far. No noise like I've heard some people mention. The roller coaster passes pretty close but I can't hear it. Overall it's clean and the spa tub looks like fun. Bed was soft and carpet clean. My ONLY gripe was no outlets by the bed to charge phones and such. But you can't win em all right?
