    My Trip Report

    Would like to thank all those who post on here, makes for a great read when I am itching for some Las Vegas in my life. First I will be flying out of Midway Sunday evening (5500 Miles) cant beat that deal. The first two days I will be staying at the El Cortez, I have always wanted to try to stay here, the GF not a fan we usually stay at the Monte Carlo, where I will spend the last two days of my trip (comped and $100 in free play and some dining credi,t also all the freebies that come with playing MyVegas. Hopefully this trip is more successful then the trip in March and also allot less kids, when did Vegas become a place to bring your kids, I thought they tried that campaign in the 90's and failed. I just turned 30, work a corporate job that I have to say is a daily grind of riding the Metra to the city from the northern burbs and putting in 10 hours grabbing a tall boy at union and heading back to the burbs (when did I turn into my dad) JK. Hopefully I can make this report half as interesting as Royal Flusher, Bee Jay, or Packer make theirs. Only two more days until I am in my Mecca.

    This thread is giving me a semi

    I like ElCo. I turn 30 on Wednesday, which I will be at the Cosmo for. I feel like I really missed out on old vegas. That place kindve feels like a nice throwback.

    One more day, I think I had one too many tall boys on the commute home I didn't seem to know the dates. Hoping the flight doesn't get delayed from the thunderstorms rolling through tomorrow.
