    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.

    Talking an inch of snow but 40 mph gusts today, hope that does not affect my flight too much. Getting my CW bankroll together!

    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...
