Currently on my Southwest flight in SFO about the leave. Forgot to check in on time yesterday morning but even after 2 hours I still got A group boarding. Close to the door in the aisle to make a quick get away when I get to the promised land just before 830! Reason for going is my buddy is headed to the iHeart music festival and he asked if I could come out to get him a better deal on the room. I jump at any chance, even though I can't stay for the weekend madness. I booked him at Ballys for the next 3 nights and took 1 night at the Cosmo for myself. I was surprised when I looked at the rates for tonight, over $1000 for a regular room??? What the hell is going on in Vegas right now? Nothing pops up on the event calendar. Was glad my host hooked up a last minute reservation. Plans are to become unrecognizably sauced up prior to his arrival at 5pm tonight and find some trouble to get into at that point. First stop today will be breakfast, anyone want to chime in a place to head to? I am just going to Yelp it otherwise. Second stop will be Ballys to check in and then over to Cosmo most likely. After that I will be trying to get into Caesars for swim up black jack if the rules aren't super horrible. See you on the otherside!
