    My Trip Report

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADXs2C4Vmho

    Well the time has come for me to return to Vegas!

    A little background. I have always loved the movie Back to the Future. Ever since I first watched it I always said in 2015 I would go to Vegas and put some money on the Cubbies. So here we are 2015 and still not Series for the Cubs. :haha: The bet will take place at the Plaza hotel because what better place to place the bet, then the hotel that Biff's Pleasure Paradise was modeled after? Unfortunately I could not find a two tied vest to place the wager in. I may place an additional wager on either Miami to win NL (Hey they got that half right!) or Tampa to win AL.

    Full disclosure I am a White Sox fan who wants nothing to do with the Cubs. When the Cubs lost to the Marlins, I made my girlfriend cry by playing this..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mPNrk2Xhag
    over the phone. Who knew three years later she would be rooting for the Sox to win the World Series because in their August slump I proclaimed "I will marry you if the Sox win the World Series!" I should make better requests next time! (I kid, I love my wife very much, not many would let their husband get away with what I do) That World Series win reformed her, and the proposal that came on Ring day in 2006 after a Thome Home run with the fireworks going off and the crowd cheering, I assume for us!

    So that is the reason for this trip. It was supposed to be a solo trip, but like fleas to a fat cat, I have four others who attached themselves to me. One guy booked in Oct. The other three two brother's and a lady booked 2 weeks ago! Let me tell you that screwed everything up, me scrambling to find separate rooms for everyone! All five of us worked at an arcade together. I am the only sucker in the group who got married and has a kid. I put everyone on notice I may duck out to do my own thing (lots of gambling). I am actually glad the other three came so I do not feel bad leaving one friend alone to play video poker for 5+ hours.

    Fremont/4 Queens for two nights.
    The Flamingo one night.
    The Cosmo one and a half nights.

    Using myVegas @ Tender, MGM buffet and EPA.

    This is my first TR, so forgive my errors. I will hopefully do this live. As you can see, I can get long winded and if I try to sum up the weekend upon return look out! Expect a lot of casino hoping. Looking forward to meeting up with Packer, Boxofbirds and others at Wynn.

    Made it to midway super early. My buddy's flight was delayed 2 hours. I asked gate clerk if I could get on his flight, after a talk with supervisor boom! So as long as this plane shows up I should be good...
