Well, I'm 1 day away from leaving for Vegas and thought I'd attempt a trip report since I enjoy reading others so much. This is our annual dudes trip for week 1 nfl. We've been going with the same core of guys for about 8 years now. I am bouncing around as I'm taking advantage of CET and Mgm offers. So Weds and Thurs me and 2 buddys are staying Ballys with 3 more friends also staying there for their entire trip. Friday I get 3 nights comp at Mgm so I'll be there with one friend while 3 more move over to HRH. I finish up crashing with my friend at Mandalay Bay Monday night as our last guy is arriving late and staying til Weds. My preferred method for blowing my gambling wad is a combination of sports bets, blackjack, roukette, and a heavy dose of slots. Since the fellas I'm with are all similar in degenerate status, we often tag team the slots together in search of the elusive hand pay. One of the fellas staying with me has the golden touch on slots and we all try to glom on to him! We stick to buffalo and other aristocrat games. Also Michael Jackson , WOF, and whatever else we happen to feel at the moment. Only show I have planned is Celine Friday night with my buddys mom and sister who are coming in thursday. I expect to be misty eyed by song 2 like I was the last time I saw her. Don't hate! Thursday will be cabana time at Ballys. Haven't heard much good about the pool, but whatever. Friday will be lazy river at MGM. Sat is college football at Excalibur. It's a humble venue, I know, but it has been fine for accommodating our group of guys. We have learned to simply bet 10 bucks on the favorite to show in the horse races and get a nice number of drink tickets from that to keep up medicated. Sunday is our visit to Westgate. Which leaves Monday as a day of recovery and wound licking. The booze will flow heavily. I'll be mixing whisky drinks and the occasional beer. Only meal I have planned is Portofino Friday before Celine. That will be my first time there and I have the MyVegas reward to use up. So hopefully I'll give some updates along the way of our exploits and some pics hopefully as well. I'll attempt one here from my April trip.
