    My Trip Report

    Heading to the promised land tonight, and I couldn't be more excited!! :thumbsup:

    Just me and the GF this trip... unfortunately SandsFan and DW wont be joining us. :cry:

    We are splitting the trip between downtown and the strip, staying at the Fremont, Planet Hollywood, and The D. We don't have a very strict itinerary this trip, mostly going to take it easy and go with the flow. Looking forward to some good drinks, good cigars, and good meals.

    I am hoping to get to the other end of the strip and check out some other properties, maybe try some new restaurants and what not. I'm open to any suggestions on good breakfast spots.

    Here is our tentative list:
    Beijing Noodle 9
    Jubliee
    Ruth Chris
    Bellagio Conservatory
    Fancy drinks @ Cromwell
    Pizza Rock
    BJ @ El Cortez
    Andiamo's

    Hoping for a little VP and VK porn... a few handy's would be nice too! :cool:

    Wish us luck, hope you enjoy!!

    Cigars look fantastic. I was not a fan of the Diesel when I got it in my Mx2 sampler. Let me know how you enjoyed it.

    Those all for you for the 4 days?

    I havent had them out of this sampler yet, but Diesel is one of my go-to cigars. I usually order them by the box.

    Ha, no way Ill get through all of these, but ill prob get through one of the bags at least. Im in the habit of bringing new brands for Sandsfan to try, so i guess im just used to packing more than i need. I like to grab a bunch when i head out for the day and trade / give some away with people that comment favorably on them.

    Ill try to post pics and short reviews on em as the trip progresses.

    Thanks Tring!! Im hoping for a couple of each!

    When on the strip I guess id do good to find some halfway decent paytables, let alone a royal flush. I wonder which is more elusive.... Ha.

    Good luck in Tunica!

    After an excruciatingly long feeling day at the office, we raced home, grabbed our gear and the pups, and headed 30 min away from the airport to drop off our dogs.

    Im glad we left when we did (and that im so paranoid / anal about these things), cause on the way back the direction we had come was bumper to bumper traffic! Missing this flight would have caused me great butt hurt
