    My Trip Report

    The annual lv ny trip has kicked off, I'm on the plane as I type this after consuming the traditional pre-flight blood mary. Usually we do about a week trip over New Years, this years is 9 days, (Bonus Time) dec-24 to jan-2. We have also mixed up the hotels this year, instead of staying in one place we are bouncing around a little. Mainly due to a few free room offers(woohoo) .
    Here's the rough plan

    First 2 nights @ New Your New York ,
    Out to the Death Valley, staying @ stage coach casino and not resort
    Down to downtown for two nights @ the Fremont,
    Dec 29 we are going to Maroon 5, so we figured it would be easier to just stay at Mandalay Bay,
    Then our final room for the trip is 4 days at the Cosmo.

    Well that's the gist of the trip, lots of craps will be throw. Most of the hotels will be the first time we have stayed at them, everyplace but the Cosmo.

    Once the plane lands I plan on eating at
    Phat Phranks

    Or
    Rollin Smoke

    Good luck and keep us updated. Did you get the 500 $ wrap around offer? Read here in a trip report the room wasn't very clean ( crumbs on the bed or so) hope it was a one off thing. Once again good luck and merry Christmas

    No , I missed the wrap around offer for the Cosmo.

    Well first night in was fun. Stayed mainly around New York. For happy hour we stopped in at the Monte Carlo , D.vino. Had some wine and meat ball sliders. The sliders were good, a tad pricey, $6 bucks for two tiny sliders and $5 wine, and that's happy hour pricing.

    Hit the craps table, argh, took a hundy off me before I knew it. Good luck was not far off, as I'm waiting for my gf, I drop $1 into a penny slot and hit for $45. So the monte only took me for 55.

    From there we went back to nyny, and stopped, by the bar Nine Fine Irishman. Really nice bar, I could easily see myself getting plastered at that place, very comfortable place. Bartender said we could keep,the new castle glasses. Cool souvenir's.

    After getting the engines primed we went over the The Bar at Times Square for the dueling piano show. It was a great time. Of course I requested vanilla ice- ice ice baby, sir mix allots - baby got back and snoop dogs - gin and juice. They did a great job on my requests.
    I couldn't believe it, but we spent 4 hrs hooting and hollering at The Bar in Times Square. Good times. After that we scored a quick bite to eat and off to bed. Good first night.
