Got the itch bad, and need to scratch it by doing a post here. T-1 week for the annual March Madness trip. We usually go the weekend of the major conference tourneys, but our work calendar is messed up this year -- forcing us to go a week early. Will still be a lot of games, with the major conferences finishing up the reg season, and the smaller conferences having their tournaments. There will be 6 guys and 1 gal on this trip, all from the same general area, but all coming and going at different times. Each likes to do their own thing....some only pay sports, some pay tables, some slots, some shopping, some don't eat at all, some never miss a meal....it's a diverse group. But the one common denominator is beer....and lots of it!!! I arrive on Wednesday on Southworst in the midafternoon. Staying until last bird out on Monday. Hotels are: Hooters for one night $19 + resort fee (never stayed here, like to play VP at the bar and eat wings here though....but never got a card, thinking I'd never stay --- opps!! Now I want to cross it off my list of places I've tried.) LVH - comped for 3 nights. Plaza - comped for one night. Got $200 in free play, and an unlimited tab at Oscar's. Really like my host here. Gonna be lots of basketball bet --- lots of Budweiser consumed --- lots of blackjack and craps --- and something new this trip, hopefully much more VP this trip.
