    My Trip Report

    Just getting this thread started now.

    I'll be heading to Vegas next Thursday for a 4 night trip. First time staying at the GN. My fiance (J), and soon to be mother inlaw (G) and father inlaw (D) will join us on this trip. G is a huge PBR fan so i'll be posting some pics from one of those events and likely lots of VP pics. J is going to be checking out wedding venues and reception dinner places. Hopefully she won't drag me around with her mom for wedding stuff but you never know. My goal this trip is to drink and gambol. I've had a stressful few months at work and I need to let loose. I don't think D and G gamble but J likes to play live poker and I got her to play VP last trip (She's been practicing JoB on Videopoker.com this past week). I'm hoping to get her to shoot some craps this trip but we'll see.

    G+D get to Vegas from Ohio on Tuesday, J gets to Vegas Wed night and I fly in Thurs night thanks to work.

    Happy gamboling! (Don't you love autocorrect? Appropriate word in any case.) Hope you enjoy the PBR. It's my wife's favorite Vegas event.

    Thanks bard, I'm looking forward to the PBR event. I've watched a few on TV but this'll be my first one.

    First time at Levi Stadium tonight

    i checked out a bunch of wedding venues back in 2012 and wrote up reports on them in case you're interested. i don't know what kinds of places you and your fiance are into.

    Thank you. I'll show this to my fiance since shes the decision maker on that stuff.


    I dropped J off at the airport last night @ 7:30 and her first night in Vegas ended up with her being down $7 at 1-3 limit poker. I got the party started early too and consumed a bunch of jameson + cokes at our local watering hole. Hoping to grab some Pho noodle soup before I have to catch the flight tonite. Forgot to mention it in the post earlier but I purchased one of those extended batteries for my phone a couple weeks back for this trip. So far I've charged it twice and its lasted me 5!!! days each time. Hoping to grab a ton of pics for this live TR.


    Not my picture but thats how big the battery is. Makes the phone look weird but whatever. Function over aesthetics and it still fits in my pocket.

    Ugh. That sucks...Hope you can turn it around. The one quad you did hit though...that a bartop? If so, what casino and bar? The game was 102% when you hit that quad and 101% after, definitely worth adding to the bartop list..
