Well almost. About a week away. I've been on these boards for weeks reading every trip report and getting tons of valuable advice. With the holiday weekend winding down, we are wrapping up the plan for this year's trip, I thought I'd do a little pre-trip report. I'm not going to try and do a live report. I know I would not do one justice like Superpocky, Packer, Suekel do among others. Since I take a few hundred pictures every trip, perhaps I will do a photo heavy trip report after we get back. Wife and I are both in our 40's and usually go out this time of year. It's always around our anniversary. We got married in Vegas in 2004 and go annually ever since. We low roll, but I press if up any money. Bringing home any of our 5K budget would be a bonus. Hope to not tap into reserves since we also have a cruise to Bermuda booked for September. We passed on 5 comped nights at Caesars for a partially comped stay at Bellagio. 2 free and 3 discounted. Not too bad for our favorite hotel. We are big fans of the pool scene there. Very relaxing with great drinks. Hope the $50 sandwich gets us bumped up to a fountain view room. Two shows already booked. MJ1 Cirque and Carrot Top . Could we choose 2 show more different? Been wanting to see both. A few meals planned: Breakfasts at Mon Ami Gabi and The Peppermill. Looking forward to trying an old Vegas classic. Dinners at Wicked Spoon, Tender, Nora's Italian Cuisine and Yard House. Planning on another visit to Red Rock Canyon. Maybe a bit of hiking if not too hot. We took our wedding pics there and have been there two other times. We'll then hop over to Red Rock Resort for lunch and bingo. Wife has always wanted to try bingo in Vegas. Thank you MyVegas for $100 freeplay at B, $75 of @ Tender, $50 Monte Carlo, free buffets and drinks at Red Rock among others. Other plans: more chip collecting, shopping for the wife, the Highroller, drinks at Hyde, as many craft beers for me and frozen drinks for the wife as we can stomach. (Pedialyte has already been purchased) And oh yeah...WIN SOME MONEY!
