Headed out to Vegas tomorrow on pretty much a spur-of-the-moment trip, will post updates here. For some context, I had a week of Vegas/NBA Summer League all mapped out for earlier this month but had to cancel those plans because my position at work got unexpectedly cut earlier this summer. Fast forward to last week when I accepted a new job offer and found out that I'll have a few days before my start date - I said 'hell with it' and booked a quick Vegas trip. Flying out of Baltimore EARLY tomorrow morning. Upon landing in Vegas I'll grab my rental car & go off-the-grid for a while as I attempt to check something off of my bucket list in Utah. Should be back to Vegas around 'normal' check-in time to settle into my digs at the Cosmo. My marketing offer is the generic "2 comped midweek nights in a City Room" but I went ahead and asked to be upgraded to a Terrace Studio w/Fountain View. I've really wanted a fountain view Terrace room and was bummed when I took my chances & didn't get one last summer, so I don't mind paying for it out of pocket ahead of time. No real concrete goals for this trip other than to enjoy doing what I want, when I want. On the gambling front my bankroll will be about $1k - games of choice will probably be roulette, VP, and pai gow with possibly some blackjack and bubble craps thrown in there as well. Would love to book a winning trip for the first time, so right now my game-plan is to focus on short hit-and-run sessions and let those add up over the course of my stay, but that's easier aid than done... Less than 24 hours and I'll be in the air!
